Our visit to just grillin in Holetown was not memorable one in any way, the food was average and the service was appaling. There were three of us eating, we all ordered drinks and a jug of water, the drinks did eventually arrive, the water never materialised, the food order took 25 mins to arrive, suprising really as the restaurant was in no way busy. When we finished our main course nobody bothered to ask if we wanted dessert, more drinks, coffee etc, after eventually having to go and look for the waitress she gave us our bill and walked off. Don't eat here unless bad service and bland run of the mill food is something you crave.

Very clean premises, very tasty food, very nice staff. Nipped in for a quick bite one day whilst touring the island. The food was good. If you are in Holetown give it a go.

We had dinner here in a quiet night in November, only a couple tables in the entire restaurant. The specialty here is grilled meats, but as a vegetarian I was able to order some sides which was enough for a meal. I thought the veggies were just average, and some were quite undercooked. My partner had a steak but didn't care for the sauce served over it. He also didn't get the right sides he had requested but didn't bother to send his plate back. Service was friendly and our order was taken at the table. We weren't too impressed with our meal and feel this place is just a bit better than fast food. Price is reasonable for Barbados prices, but we much preferred the little roadside or beach shacks we happened upon serving cheap, local Bajan food.

Always thought this was a good grill spot, and I got the reminder from DW this morning that we both like the menu and the atmosphere for lunch and also for a casual dinner date, without having a budget.....So try it when you are here in Barbados and when you want an experience just beyond fast food.

Great value for a simple yet well done menu. Fresh fish of the day frilled or as a sandwhich. Shrimp / Steak or Jerk chicken and thats about it. The fish (I've had Flying Fish and Marlin) was cooked and seasoned well. You get your choice of a couple of sides of veggies, potatoes, salad, coleslaw or rice.
Totally relaxed environment. Picnic tables and hi tops. Seat yourself. The first time I went it was early and a waitress was doing the rounds, but as it got busy, they switched to only counter service.
Price at first felt a bit high, but compared to all the other options in the area, its a steal.
