We were advised to go to Shakers and were not disappointed. It's a simple atmosphere with terrific food and great service. I was told by a local they have the best ribs on the island so ordered them and they were fantastic. Real tasty sauce and fall of the bone tenderness and really good sized portion. My wife had the blackened mahi mahi and she was equally impressed. We shared chocolate and ice cream for dessert and did not expect anything special, but it was absolutely delicious. And the prices were excellent compared to other restaurants, especially those along the main roads. We spent $91 (BD) for 4 Banks, a fish sandwhich and a burger and fries at an over-priced beach restaurant in Holetown and our Shakers meal with drinks came to $120. No comparison.

We highly recommend Shakers and we'll be back. Make sure to call for a reservation.

This looks from the outside like a place to avoid,but dont be fooled,the food is gorgeous, very simple and inexpensive. Service was first class although it was very busy.
Easy to see why the reputation of Shakers has grown almost to a cult following

In Barbados you can have it all. Old school elegance at The Cliff, trendy dining at Cin Cin, having it large at the Gap. But sometimes, you find a place that encapsulates all that is good in a place, under one roof.
Yes, the service may be laid back, and you may struggle to hear the waiters warm, low voice, but, welcome to the Caribbean. Shaker's isn't trying to be anything that it isn't. So what is it? In a residential area, hard to find, it's a genuine treasure. Get there early enough to eat outside and enjoy home made delights like their ribs and blackened catch of the day. They are shameless enough to include cheesy chips on the menu, and I'm shameless enough to say I loved them.
Call and book to avoid disappointment.
Directions: on the coastal road (coming from Carlisle bay towards Rockley), turn left at Bubba's sports bar and continue for a few minutes deep into a residential area, avoiding the temptation to turn back. Turn left at chicken glorious, and you will see the twinkling patio lights.

Ate here twice in March2013 after first visiting in 2011.Food,atmosphere and service first class,a great night out.The owner,Amy,always takes time to visit
every table for a few words with the diners.a nice touch.
Not overall expensive,but good quality and in a real Barbados setting.a little off the beaten track but a safe walk from the rockley highway( turn off the main road at the Scotia bank)
Really recommend the ribs,
Then you can always say.'
" I had the Ribs at Shakers"
Go and enjoy
