Very slow for very average food. Waited 20 mins to even place a drinks order. Painfully slow to get basic dishes and really overpriced. Huge mistake, Cin Cin was similarly priced and so much better.

We went to Cariba on our first night in Barbados. Despite it not being on the beach (which we usually would go for as we live a long way from the sea), we loved the atmosphere and setting, a real great feel to the place,...More

Having been coming to Cariba ever since the week it first opened, we were excited to return again with our 2 year old daughter - her first visit to the island. The menu has changed a bit in the 3 years since we were last...More

We visit this little gem every time we visit Barbados and have introduced family and other holidaymakers to it and everyone has commented positively. It is set in a chattel house, tucked just off the main west coast Highway 1, south of Holetown with its...More
