“Good Bajan food”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

I went here based on positive reviews. The staff, especially the manager, was extremely friendly. I ordered the Indian Settler's Chicken. If you like spicy you will love the taste of this dish. However, the chicken was a little dry. One thing that really surprised me was the friendliness of the staff. When I said I was in Barbados for my birthday (which was the day before), the manager offered me a free glass of champagne to celebrate (I took a vodka and 7 instead). Price was mid-range but worth it in my book. If you love to people watch, definitely have a seat in the front of the restaurant so you can watch people walking The Gap!

“Bad food”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

What a disappointment! Food was very bad, not cheap at all. Many better options on St. Lawrence Gap.
