“Great local easy going bar/restaurant with very friendly staff!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

We stopped here for a drink on our first night in Barbados, Karen the owner with her husband were just brilliant. Telling us all about the island, where to visit etc. When we next come to Barbados we will definitely visit again, thanks so much for the gin and tonics! Its located just north of Holetown on the right hand side.

“Best fish on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

We went along to to listen to Reggae on a rainy night and wasn't expecting to eat as well. The fish was fabulous, plentiful, and great value. There may have been some run consumed. So we went back for our last night. We didn't realise it was Quiz Night and all tables were reserved but our hostess was wonderful and fitted us in and we ended up joining a team and WINNING! Fish again excellent. A really memorably place and the staff are lovely.

“Quiz night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

This is a fabulous rum shop we went for the quiz night so there was a good mix of locals and tourists the place was packed. Despite a mix up on our food order, the owner and his wife could not have been more apologetic about the delay (when your that busy these things happen if a bar is quiet your in the wrong place) the drinks and food are excellent. We had a fantastic night out, and we won the quiz what more can you ask for.

“Great little bar!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

This place is next to groots on theJo highway and is a little gem. Whether you want a lazy afternoon beer or great night out it is brilliant! Thursday is quiz night and Friday they have a reggae band playing. Drinks are super cheap and you can opt to buy a bottle of rum and mixers and they supply the ice. Food is simple, tasty and well priced too. What's not to like!!

“Great Reggae Joint!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I went here last Friday and it was excellent. The band was such good fun and the songs were on key and fabulous. It's healthy mix of locals and tourists and very friendly. Whilst I didn't eat there myself I met a couple who absolutely raved about the food and said it was the best fish they'd ever had. We went for drinks and the band. The rum punch was lovely and the prices were reasonable. I must say that it was one of the best nights we've had on this beautiful island.
