Food and atmosphere fantastic. Not sure how long you are going to keep your band if Simon Cowell pays a visit. Had a really great time and I am sure you could triple in size and be full every night.

Liked everything about this cute little place . We have been here two years running and we were met with the same warm welcome each time . We haven't eaten here but the menu looks good and it smells Devine . This place is worth checking out .

We have been to the cafe on previous visits to the island for brunch so went back to have the wonderful pancakes (and rum punch!) and saw that they had a Tapas night on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We booked for the following Tuesday (booking is necessary) and what a night! The tapas was good but the evening was made great because of the band "1359" who play on those nights. They are great guys who play three sets which are a mix of reggae, modern and various rock/pop tracks. They get everyone singing along and really engage with the audience. The first night was such good fun that we booked there and then to go back for the Thursday night. Again we had a great night and the guys in the band let my 11 year old son Alex have a go on the electric guitar with them between each set and were really encouraging. Alex now has his sights set on being in a band - I am just hoping he wants to be based in Barbados so I can go along too!! Greta night and hope to go back on our next visit. Thanks to all at Cafe Carizma!

This restaurant was the best kept secret in Holetown.
The owners were so welcoming and the Tapas food was fantastic.Possibly the best Tapas I have ever had. We enjoyed it so much, we went back a few days later and were not disappointed. The band playing were extremely good and very friendly. They came to chat with all the customers after their performance. The staff couldn't do enough for us, they were delightful.
Try it, you will be amazed.
We will definitely be going again on our next visit to Barbados.
