“Very poor”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We popped in for a lunch time snack, and unfortunately this was the worst meal of our holiday.

The service was incredibly abrupt and not particularly attentive. We had to wait over 45 minutes for our food, despite being told that it wouldn't be long. A BLT arrived without tomato, limp lettuce, and the worst bacon that I've ever seen (very fatty and overcooked), and a burger was served with very unpleasant processed cheese.

There's nothing that the restaurant staff can do about the current development works on the beach, but they could be much more friendly towards their customers, and offer a better standard food in my opinion.

“Decent Beach Bar”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

If you want to "lime" with the locals, this is the place to do it. Food is okay but not stellar. Beach under construction when I was there in August 2013 so limited activity at the bar and restaurant.

“Husbands favourite bar in the world”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Situated right on the beach, with boardwalk in the process of being built. Fresh food at very affordable prices. Open outside tables as well as indoor area. Sports channels show all different sports. Its a must for seeing the sunset. Have to visit if you are staying on the west coast.

“Great food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

Came here for dinner and drinks after our long flight! Great food, fishcakes were not on the menu but was no hassle to make and were delicious as always!! We also had Bol Jol, Calamari, flying fish, a lasagne and burger. All were good with friendly service and plenty of hot bajan sauce on tap. A great first night!

A typical Beach with a true Bajan feel, Sunday night is Steel Band night great entertainment with a basic menu, local food at resonably priced, the Rum and Banks beer flows all day long a lot of the larger hotels could learn from the staffs excellent customer service!!
Well worth a visit
