“great meal - great fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

I was a bit apprehensive about going here as had mixed review's but we loved it!There were 4 of us and we booked for 7-15 so we're there before it got too busy.we had spicy chicken wings to start which were definitely spicy but very nice.for mains 3 of us had the mixed kebabs -one chicken, one pork and one beef - all the meat was good quality and we all enjoyed it. My daughter had the fillet sets and that was delicious! It aS good fun to cook your own food on hot stone-only one person to complain to if it wasn't cooked right! The service was excellent- didn't wait at all and staff so friendly and helpful.my daughter had chocolate browny for pudding and rest of had ice cream! A great evening! I think going early before it gets too busy is probably the way to go!

“Try it!”

We've never ventured out this way before but so glad we did. The elbow room is good for a less formal but very enjoyable night out. Try the sizzling steaks :-) well done guys & gals!

“Average food above average waiting time”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Had dinner with the family there. Ceviche for appetisers was only called that way had nothing to do with the real thing. You cook your own food at the table yet we got hours an hour after we ordered. The food was rather average and not good value although nothing really is in peak season in barbados??good for the novelty effect for the kids once..

“A great night Jammin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Going into it's 7th season this place never fails to entice me back for an after dinner jam with locals and old friends from overseas.If you want to chill on the terrace or boogy at the bar you will always find great music, reasonably priced drinks along with a good fun crowd to enjoy the early hours with at the Elbow room.

“Mediocre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

I thought this would be a fun experience. Not at all! Poor quality steak, grease was sputtering all over your clothes while trying to cook it. We had a small table which could not accommodate the big hot plates, the water and wine etc. Not enough space to remove your meat off the lava rock and enjoy it. We were the only customers, but still got seated at this small, small table. Size of the ceviche was minuscule, and not tasty. Could not wait to get out of there! The servers were nice though.
