“entertaining evening - quite different”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

One cooks one's main course of a scorching hot flat stone, so that one can have one's steak, fish, seafood precisely to one's taste - med., rare, well done, etc - Prior to the main course - opportunity to sample a variety of starters. - Interesting to sit on the sidewalk/pavement or indoors in the weather is inclement and watch the world go by

“Something different”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

A nice idea that we've tried in Spain. Order your food and then cook it to your liking. I suppose the only problem was that there wasn't enough room for all the food - you only want to cook small pieces of steak at a time and therefore you don't have much space for the uncooked meat. Small complaint but wouldn't stop us returning. Good steak and fish.

“Delicious Food, Quiet Atmosphere”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

This was a great restaurant. We didn't fully understand the concept that the food cooks at your table on a hot stone, but when the hot stones came, it made sense and was very fun. The fish was really fresh, and the service was excellent. Definitely a good place to try!

“Different Experience”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

If you want to try something different, this is the place! They give you a big hot lava block to cook your own food on. It is the kind of place that would be good with a crowd, and fun. Apparently, they have a lively bar scene on weekends but not much on the Sunday Night we were there, it was pretty quiet. The food was good but maybe a little pricey considering you were cooking it yourself, but it was a fun change to have this kind of experience.

“An all round great experience. ”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Me and my girlfriend recently visited Elbow Room for an evening meal, we stayed nearby in a all inclusive resort but decided to eat out one night, this restaurant did not disappoint! Great service from the moment we walked in. We both loved the idea of cooking on the hot stone, we previously tried this in Switzerland. All the food was fresh and of good quality. When the time comes to visit Barbados again we will definitely revisit Elbow Room.
