“Great spot for a sunset drink”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

I didn't eat here - though many people did seem to - but did have drinks here. It is a wonderful location with an unspoilt view across the beach and sea! The perfect place for an evening cocktail (inexpensive) and watching the sun go down - its a lively place - good ambience and the service was very good - (remember to deet up though mozzies love sunset!!). .

The only reason I have given it a 4 is that i haven't eaten there.

“Nice Bar!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

I went here at least once probably twice a day whilst staying in Holetown.

The staff are generally fun/friendly and look after you. The food can be variable in quality/time taken to appear (which does bear any relation to how many other people are there), but on the whole was good tasty, fresh and great value.

The drinks are inexpensive and there is a great choice.

As for the location which is on the beach, its the best place i have come across in Barbados!

“Sunday evening for the steel band!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Our party of 6 went along on Sunday evening about 6.30pm. Steel band is 7.30pm. Sat and enjoyed the atmosphere looking out to the sea. Eating at the beach is the way to go! Bank's beers and lovely food. Staff are lovely too. Definitely felt very Caribbean listening to the steel band:) Surfside serve food throughout the day and evenings. Many families obviously meet up there as a group of families kid's all playing on the beach in front of where we were! So good for all ages:)

“Service very slow and food distinctly average”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We waited over 40 minutes in stifling heat for very average food. Surfside seems more of a sports bar - maybe good for drinks but not somewhere to eat it would seem.

“Real Atmosphere”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

This is a great place to make you feel you are really in the Caribbean. When we went the place was buzzing with atmosphere, helped along by the live music. The food was good and the owner charming. We’ll be going back there for sure.
