This is now my new favourite place to visit on the West Coast. Very affordable, perfect service from Wendy and the food is brilliant. 100% worth a visit

Had dinner at Groots, very friendly bar lady and very welcoming with good sense of humour. Standing at bar feels like English pub back in England. Excellent service and great food in the atmosphere of locals too.very friendly owner and staff who look after guest very well.

We were looking for a reasonably priced restaurant for some good local food and Groots more than delivered. The atmosphere is a bit surreal, if you close you eyes you could sear you're in a pub somewhere in the UK with the local regulars egging one another. I gad an amazing meal of blackened red snapper, tender and perfectly seasoned,... More

we have been here twice since our return last week. we love the food and service. First time was just my spouse and I and we both had the steak &kidney pie. Fantastic. Music was wonderful. Service the same. Next time came with friends and all the same. Wendy does outstanding drinks. Hans supplies the comic relief and Ailene makes... More

Stopped there for an early dinner after being on the beach. Owner and barmaid ver welcoming. Food very good for a reasonable priced meal. Would recommend for a casual meal.

Good to see Groots returning. Sadly the cellar does not recreate the original shown in the pic above. We dropped in one evening for a couple of drinks and we were the only ones there for quite a while. They are reasonably priced. I wish them luck but it will take some time.

By Barbados standards this was ok but nothing to write home about although I am writing a review. Menu is limited and the offering was ok. Worth a visit if you want a reasonable priced meal by Barbados standards.

Great place to mix with the locals and drink and eat at reasonable prices. The blackened snapper pieces are the best thing you will eat on the island, perfectly cooked and tastier than anything you will eat at the overpriced 5 star restaurants. Fish and chips, Roti, jerk chicken and curries are all excellent. Welcome back Aleen, Wendy and Hans.... More

We had such a great time at Groots that we came back multiple times during our week here. Definitely try the jerk chicken, fish cakes, and one of Wendy's special margaritas...and if you're feeling extra saucy, ask her for one of her blow jobs. Don't miss this place!

We were out for a walk north of Holetown and stopped in at Groots for lunch. I understand that they recently moved to their new location (previously across from Coral Reef Club). It is tucked away underneath a hardware store on the same side of the road as the previous location but about 200 metres further north. Grab a big... More
