“A gem!!!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

This little restaurant in the middle of a residential street is an absolute gem!
The ambiance, food and value for money is second to none!
Make sure you go on a Wednesday when Jason works his only evening of the week! His witty sense of humour and attentiveness made our evening!
We will make a return visit - on a Wednesday needless to say - before the restaurant closes for a month (August 17th - September 17th)

“Fantastic value, authentic food and a MUST!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Having tried several restaurants in the local area over the last week I must say that this is one I would definitely return to! Mozzarella dippers shared with the husband, a huge portion of flying fish and sides for main each and chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert each - 6 Banks beers between us - $117 BDS. Fantastic service, great atmosphere! You have got to go!!!!!! Get off the beaten track - ignore the chain restaurants and go for the authentic rum shack! LOVED IT!!!!

“Getting our Shakers Fix!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

We dine at Shakers whenever we visit the island and no other restaurant compares. Great atmosphere, warm and welcoming staff and fab service throughout your visit. And last but not least, amazing quality fresh fish at a good price! We keep saying we'll try the ribs as we've heard great things about these too but the fresh fish is hard to stray from! Cooked to perfection every time. Recommend Shakers to all friends, family and trip advisor viewers as the one restaurant you must visit during your stay to Barbados.

“Would definitely go again”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Our home town football team are nicknamed The Shakers so with hubby being a supporter we just had to go and try the food at this bar and grill and were not disappointed. There were four adults and one young child in our group, we telephoned to make a reservation and ate on a Saturday night in early July. The restaurant is not on the main road but situated on a housing estate. We asked some local people where it was and they said take the bus, on the main road between Bridgetown and St. Lawrence Gap, and get off near Bubbas which is just across the road from the Accra Beach Hotel, take the road on the left of Bubbas and walk up the road taking the second road on the left just before the Chicken Shop and Shakers is the second or third building on the right. There is a car park to the side with parking for a few cars. We were expecting to see a lot of the locals there but surprise surprise they were nearly all visitors from abroad, the power of Trip Advisor maybe. A young lady came and showed us to our outside table and gave us the menu, a glass of water and took our drinks order. I would not say there was a large selection to choose from but this is not a big restaurant. The food was served in a reasonable time, delicious, tasty, hot and served with a smile. If visiting Barbados again we would definitely book here again.

“Shakers”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

If you dont mind eating very well in a modest establishment slightly off the beaten track yet still close to the action, then this is the place. Amazing value for money from a limited but perfectly adequate menu. This little place is even able to serve a choice of wines in addition to the usual alcoholic and soft drinks. Ours was a party of four and although a Monday I was glad that we made a reservation. The place was full and I suppose that speaks for itself. Best to get a table outside in the front to benefit from the breeze. Despite being on her own and therefore very busy, the sole waitress was both courteous and efficient. Our bill was significantly less than most other places I have been to on the Island that serve similar or even less quality of food. This was my 10th visit to this restaurant and I will return.
