“Perfection by the sea”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

We had two beautiful meals at cin cin on a recent trip, having booked weeks ahead. Beautiful water side tables, great assured service and wonderful food - cin cin is one of the best, if not the best, in barbados. We particularly enjoyed gin and tonics, the main menu fillet steak and chips , veal chop, ceviche, moules, and special mahi mahi. And and the cheese board. It's spacious, beautiful, gentle and special. If we cold eat here every week we would ! Can't wait to go back.

“Excellent sea side dinner”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Dining at Cin Cin was fantastic... very modern and sparsely decorated... very strange art painting in the bar room which was a little disturbing to look at... they should sell this piece...

We had asked for sea side table and were not seated there initially, the host moved us with a promise to be off the table within 2 hours for next seating... no problem and was definitely appreciated as the sea side tables really offer a spectacular view.

Food was excellent as was the service.


We ate at the following restaurants on this trip; The Tides, Mojo, Cin CIn Cliff, Champers and Daphne's on this trip... yes, we spent a fortune on fine dining. i will post this paragraph on all... the food was excellent at all these fine restaurants. Mojo is not on the water and is not in the same league as the rest but was also good... great burger.

It would be difficult to rate them against each other. All of these other restaurants had stunning views and all are worth dining at. all are expensive but we were very satisfied. Service is excellent at all, though The Cliff and Tides did stand out against the rest.

Service in general and specifically table-side is excellent in Barbados... something we are already missing here back in the USA.

“Superb!!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We visited Cin Cin on our last night in Barbados with our Bajan friends and arrived to a warm, friendly welcome. We were shown to our table beside the lapping waters of the Caribbean........a beautiful location. . There was a good choice on the menu and when the food arrived it was beautifully presented. Service was attentive but not obtrusive and the food was divine. I have eaten in many restaurants in Barbados but this has to be one of the best! Although the prices are at the higher end it certainly delivered value for money in service, atmosphere and food. It was a perfect evening!
