This restaurant is at the end of the road where the "old Barbados restaurants" can be found. The exterior isn't very exciting, but the terrace bar at the back is very pleasant. The main restaurant is upstairs and doesn't have the views so many restaurants have, but it is well set out and bright. The table service was exemplary and friendly. The food was excellent better in my opinion than the Lonestar the previous evening. We had the teraki shrimp and the jerk pork. The pork was cooked beautifully and tasted delicious. Dessert of warm lemon tart was also excellent. So if you are looking for good food this place is worth a visit.

-NISHI Restaurant, the setting and atmosphere was extremely welcoming and the staff quick and genuine service was a plus for me.

I totally had enjoyed the evening there. The meal it was simply amazing; started with Shrimp Tempura and moments later the Volcano and for desert the Chocolate Terrine with a Cappuccino and of course Wine which I love. And a great bottle of dry, red wine was suggested by Paul himself as he is quite interactive with his customers.

With great meal and service as such, no doubt I shall return!!!

We had a brilliant evening here, a great location in Holetown in a building that has been various different restaurants over the years and is full of character. The owner was very friendly, chatting with each table and checking that all was going well. Great service all round. Lovely sushi - they even made extra salmon nigiri for us when we told the owner it was our 9 year old daughter's favourite and the chef was delighted to see her wolf down 4 pieces. There's a variety of dishes on the menu to suit everyone and a good wine list. It was busy though so book ahead. We didn't stay too late due to our little one but on our way out we noticed a lovely lounge/bar area that would be great to chill out in with a pre or post dinner drink. I'd like to go back with just the husband for a more romantic/grown up experience!

I don't know why we had not been to Nishi before, as we used to like Olive's, the restaurant that preceded it. However, when we looked at the menu online, we realised that they served our kind of food and decided to try it out. Their spicy sushi was excellent, the seafood soup was very tasty but a little too thick, while their Thai prawn green curry was commendable but would have benefitted from more sauce. The service was attentive and good. We washed the meal down with a very pleasant, dry Cotes de Provence Rose. Overall one of the better meals that we have experienced in St James.
