Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

It's not often you get to cook your own dinner on a hot lava stone. The ceviche starters were really tasty. It's something different with great food and reasonably priced.
Give it a go!

“A great Saturday night out”
Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

We heard about this from fellow guests at the Tamarin Hotel so we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. The lava stone cook yourself menus are great and not expensive for Barbados. The staff were very pleasant and the locals passing up and down the street amusing. We would certainly recommend this restaurant. Brian & Janet Cole

“Unique dining experience with very good food!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Had a very good dinner at Elbow Room on 4/1/14. Sat on the patio overlooking some other restaurants in Holetown. Service was great...very friendly & attentive. It was a quite night when we were there but I was told the restaurant gets busier later at night and has a fun bar scene. Every diner (with the exception of kids) are given a SUPER hot stone to cook your own meal on. You have a choice of chicken, beef, or fish. All are served with veggies, other choices of sides, and various dipping sauces. Children's meals are cooked in the kitchen for obvious safety reasons. The food was delicious...my mahi-mahi was so fresh & tasty! We highly recommend this fun dining experience.

“Good food but needs more choice of starters”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

The hot stone grill is lovely and the meat/fish is beautiful but I would have liked more choice for starters instead of just the ceviche. We will return though as the restaurant is well located and the food not overly expensive
