Being a frequent visitor to Barbados we have always said we'd try Zen but never having until now. Staying at the Crane it was a must do and can't believe we left it so long. One of us tried Thai dishes and the other Japanese....More

So we wanted to eat here because this restaurant is literally at the edge of the cliff overlooking crane beach. We waited a bit to be seated because we wanted a window seat. We are a gluten free family and they were able to accommodate...More

The food is top notch, the setting is fantastic, you eat overlooking the Crane Beach. The staff we adequate, but unremarkable. All three courses were really good and had very different flavours, everything was very well prepared and presented. I had the marinated pork salad,...More

This full on Asian creation is perched above Crane Beach. Get there early enjoy the view and watch the moon rise. Menu is varied and pricey. Good quality but remember sushi takes time to prepare. Order an appetizer.

We went here twice while staying at the Crane. First for Thai night and then Japanese. The food is delicious and the service is very good. If you arrive early you can see the beautiful view of Crane beach.

The food was delicious, but service was incredibly slow. We brought our children and arrived for their first seating right when the restaurant opened for dinner, and were dismayed that despite sitting at 6 p.m. we didn't receive appetizers until 7:03 p.m. and our entrees...More
