Beachfront location is idyllic. This place is extraordinarily family friendly - food the kids will love (nice pizzas & ice creams etc), and a great selection for the grown ups plus its reasonably priced. Kids can play on the beach in front of you while you take your time over your coffees. There's a lunch & a dinner menu. We booked a dinner table for about 6.00 - 6.30pm (to watch the sunset which is around 6.15pm in Barbados in August) and we were delighted - beautiful sunset - even the children (aged 6, 7 and 10 appreciated its beauty!). The staff are very friendly. There's a car park if you're driving, if not its on the main road opposite the Super Centre shopping mall.

If you go during the day there is one or two licensed sellers on the beach in front of zaccios - only jewellery & not at all pushy, just friendly guys making a living, no obligations, we bought a shell bracelet for our 10 year old for 15 Barbados dollars (about £5). Zaccios also has an enclosed swimming area & we got caught in the middle of a shoal of flying fish - kids were delighted to see them so close up! WOW is all I can say - a memory to treasure!

There's a few boats on the beach in front of zaccios - which you can hire privately for trips - quite reasonably judging on what we heard from other tourists. We chose not to do a boat trip tho as hubby not keen on boats!

Its not just the amazin location that makes this place good though - the food is good too - fresh & good quality cooking.

If you're staying in the area you must go there! even if you're staying further away - still go its definitely worth the visit!

Not much to say this time. Food average. Cocktail good to very good. Waitress's surly. Men's toilets disgusting. Wife said women's toilets clean.

Always ask for a sea side table on the reservation - they do not promise but do try when you get there - however, it is first come first served. Menus is a staple - but could do with a few variations - its been the same for years. Price is staring to creep up. Great Burgers!!

If you are a Sikh don't go here. An embarrassment to Barbados and Barbadians for not allowing a Sikh in because he was wearing a turban, claiming it was a "hat"... Illiterate or ignorant ???

We ate there 2 nights ago. 4 diners one with electric wheelchair. We had rung to book and explained about the wheelchair. When we arrived despite there only being three other tables with diners.they did not have a table ready. We asked if we could have a drink while we waited but were ignored..
After ten minutes we were seated. Still not asked about drinks still only three tables full. We collared a waitress who had taken food to next table. It took 5 mins to even get the menu. The staff never smiled and we felt as if we were an imposition.
After twenty minutes we finally got an order taken.
The food arrived very quickly and was very good. Al of a sudden the go slow ceased. Food was delivered and plates removed before we had finished chewing last mouth full. Then mins arrived within mins of finishing starters. But asking for more drinks was still a long drawn out affair.
After mains we were asked if we wanted a sweet. Only two menus were brought. One of our party had left the table so when asked for our choices in super quick time. We explained we needed more time and two minutes later we were asked again.
We were not asked if we wanted coffee we were just presented with the bill without asking.
Through out the night we were made to feel uncomfortable. No one smiled and responses were very robotic and un helpful.
Won't be going back
