“Great place to go on Tapas night”
Reviewed November 13, 2013 via mobile

Great friendly welcome and needed to book in advance for the live music / tapas nights. We started with mojitos and they were so good we had to have more. When the tapas arrived they were nicely presented and tasted really good. With the band playing good music in the background it was a great evening. We immediately booked to go back again later in our holiday.

“Great Cafe'”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We have just returned from Barbados and were amazed by the ridiculous comment from somebody about flies at the Bar Carizma. they obviously have not been to the tropics at this time of year, which is the rainy season after all! There were even flies at Sandy Lane...it is just one of those things, and we think it is a very unjust comment. The cafe situated in The Chattel Village at Holetown is just delightful...serves the best coffee on de island and has such lovely happy staff. We cannot waiit to go back.

“Great place, don't miss it !”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Our second visit here this week, first one was for a coffee one morning and we booked for the Tapas night, I am sat here in the restaurant now having just sated my appetite on some really excellent tapas at a very reasonable price. Live music playing with the backing provided by the tree frogs lol
With regard to the previous review that complains about flies, they have been a pest all down the West coast due to the recent heavy rain storms, it is a universal problem to any establishment with outside dining BUT only for a day or so following a storm and not normally in such high numbers. The review makes it sound like a plague of flies has descended over this restaurant, no, not the case. We dined tonight and not a fly in sight.

Must go, got to order pudding......

“Lovely food - shame about the flies”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

The food here is so good - and the staff are lovely. But there are a lot of flies - seriously, to the point where it gets annoying. whilst the food is great our overall impression is that we wouldn't go back as the flies were that annoying!

Hello I hope that you have read my response to the previous customer. The flies are not normal , it is a seasonal occurrence and lasts only for a few days when the rains are heavy, as they have been . We do everything we can to counteract this and really hope that our future clients do not think this is the norm from your comments. The beauty of the café is we are in the gardens , but that means we are exposed to nature .
