So happy that the restaurant is back up and running post flood. The hostess was lovely enough to accommodate us without a reservation - she offered us a seat on the inside which was totally fine. She seated us and wished us a good dining experience. There was a conversation with the waiter about how they prepare a blended fruit... More

Beautiful location with clean modern decor overlooking the sea, both food and service of a very high standard. Friends had recommended CIN CIN and I was so glad to have listened to them, have been going to Barbados for many years and love the restaurant scene so many good places to eat. Certainly this one to add to my list

We went to Cin Cin with another couple - in Barbados for 2 week holiday. From the moment we walked in we found the service pretentious. We visited many restaurants during our holiday and this was the poorest service by far (service at all the other restaurants was excellent). Must point out one exception - the sommelier. Very friendly man... More

Group of 6 enjoyed a wonderful evening on the terrace. The lighting allows for a beautiful view of the water even though it is dark out. Service was very professional and personable (thanks Trevor). Main course of Blackened Mahi Mahi on Couscous was exceptional. Extensive wine list.

cin cin [chin-chin] 1. a cheers or toast to good health. 2. a refreshingly contemporary, elegant new restaurant that offers 'alfresco dining' with sweeping views of the west coast of Barbados. A trendy new hot spot that features an air-conditioned lounge bar with an expansive glass wall allowing uninterrupted views across the water, serving quintessentially Mediterranean-style cuisine with a Caribbean twist.
