“Outstanding Food & Wraps (Gluten Free, too!)”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

We are very happy to have selected Artsplash for lunch today. Richard, the very friendly owner of the deli located in the front of the establishment, is a trained chef who just so happens to make the most delicious gluten free wrap sandwich I've ever had. Though everything in his deli is gluten free, his creations do not lack for taste, quality, and texture (anyone who is familiar with many GF foods, especially when eating out or buying store bought items, knows exactly what I mean - breads that crack in two, crusts that crumble or flop around in a soggy heap, sugary or fatty masses of starch... Yes, we GF folks have all been there). Thankfully, Richard took the time to figure out and master absolutely delicious wraps, quiches, falafel, and more. It's so good that even our pals who can eat wheat without worry will love his tasty and pliable wraps and the fillings offered. They are so great that I - someone who cooks and bakes GF every day at home for the past several years - had to ask once more to ensure they are indeed GF (he kindly assured me that they are and said I was not the only one who asked twice about cassava flour imparting such deliciousness). I personally know the dedication it takes to make GF food items a tasty success and I am pleased to share this info with anyone who is looking for a flavorful, fresh, and healthy lunch... One that just so happens to be delicious and GF.

We also had a smoothie at Artsplash which was excellent. All ingredients are fresh and you can order healthy add-ins such as flax or nut butters. We liked that it tasted of fresh fruit, not sugary nonsense that comes from a carton.

Bravo to these two places located at Artsplash. Both are a delicious and healthy highlight to the Barbados food scene and the prices are very fair for such quality items. The two great reviews below provide a bit more information regarding hours and location. Highly recommended!

“Organic juice and smoothies and great lunches”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

Artsplash has a great smoothie and vegetable juice counter. Excellent quality and service with a smile. Richard has a cooking corner on the front porch and creates delicious well priced gluten free wraps and daily specials. Hours are limited. Richard is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am until 1pm or until he sells out. Juice bar is open from 9 until 2pm Monday thru Friday. Not sure about Saturday hours. Located directly across from Hastings Rocks in the pink Artsplash building. Even if you are in port for the day, cab down, get a smoothie and take a short walk on the boardwalk. The beach is beautiful.

“delicious wraps and juices”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We visited this place nearly every day that we stayed in Hastings...located in the Santa Neta apartment building opposite the bandstand on Hastings boardwalk, Artsplash is an art school and playpark for kids that also happens to run an excellent juice bar and small cafe serving gluten free wraps. The woman working at the juice bar is really friendly and serves up a great range of fresh juices and smoothies, which you can sit and drink on the shady, breezy porch or take away. You can add healthy 'extras' like spirulina or flaxseed fo an extra dollar.


From Monday to Thursday (I think), Richard runs a gluten-free wrap cafe on the porch. Honestly, these were by far the most delicious thing we ate during our stay...he does fish (eg flying fish, tuna, mahi-mahi, whatever's available that day), chicken or falafel (vegetarian) in gluten free cassava wraps, which are incredibly tasty, filling, healthy and well worth the very reasonable 18 Barbados dollars. You really get the impression that he cares about the quality of the food he serves...all the ingredients are fresh and well chosen. Just get there early-ish though...he starts serving about 11.30 but is often sold out in a couple of hours. On Saturday mornings, there's also a small farmers' market at Artsplash...we picked up some amazing banana jam and mango hotsauce, home-made oatmeal raisin cookies and some freshly baked bread. Artsplash is a very cool little set up, thoroughly recommended.
