“Good Experience”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

My wife and I, decided to try it for breakfast one morning and it was great. The service was exemplary, with all the staff taking the time out to come talk to us, as we had many questions. Truth be told I was so impressed that I tried to talk my wife into staying a few hours so that we could sample the lunch menu.

I must also add that we enjoyed their brownies so much that we ordered a pan the following week, as well as the rum cake balls rolled in toasted coconut, to share at a family gathering. The thing is that they usually require advance notice of 48 hours, however due some communication problems we only were able to make contact that morning and they accommodated us. Thanks Island Plates and Happy Anniversary.

“Wonderful little spot.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We spent many happy times at Island Plates. Tasty breakfasts, complete with warm welcomes and always a smile.
Dinner on the terrace was delicious and a lovely breeze from the ocean kept us cool.
Looking forward to 2014 when we will be back again to enjoy good food, friendly fun and warm smiles.

“Hospitable Hosts!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This is one little restaurant not to be missed. Fantastic food at great prices. Called in on a Saturday and ate curry followed by chocolate brownies to die for! Fantastic attentive service from two very hospitable ladies. Definitely recommend for a lunch time stop! They also do a gourmet evening meal on a Thursday which looks amazing.

“Great lunchtime stop”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Stopped for lunch while driving through Speightstown. Friendly locals suggested it would be a good place to relax and enjoy lunch. We received a very warm welcome and were seated on the terrace with a view of the square and sea glimpses. We ordered a variety of baguettes, all of which were freshly prepared to order and very enjoyable. The freshly squeezed fruit juices ( apple and mango) were delightful, so much so that we ordered seconds. We finished off with ice creams, pistachio, rum and raisin, maple and almond. Service was faultless being friendly, attentive and welcoming. Excellent value for money at $51 BBD for 3. Highly recommended. Would definitely return.
