We found these guys on Face Book as we were looking for a Gluten Free Restaurant in Barbados. We visited for lunch on a mad day of sight seing on a cruise. Well worth the effort! Superb food, reasonable priced and great service form Marie & Pat. Give it a go if you are in Barbados, you wont be disappointed!

This is an interesting establishment with the eating area on a covered raised deck in the corner of a car park but don’t let this put you off! It is run by two sisters who provide a warm welcome and it is clear they are passionate in everything they do. There is a simple honesty here at Island Plates and,... More

We arrived without reservations but with great TA reviews . We were told that they did not have a table and we asked to wait . The chef indicated that it would be 40 minutes. We returned in about 30 minutes and the waitress/owner in charge of seating guests had no idea that we requested a table. I asked to... More

We only managed breakfasts at the Island Plates which were delicious and filling with lovely service by Marie. Set back from the beach in Speightstown.

This place has the best food we had all week! We went to the other well rated restaurants as well earlier because they were directly on the water but this was is simply the best for taste, freshness and quality! I had the Island goodness wrap and my husband had the Ban Apple wrap and they were both delicious and... More

Gorgeous homemade food...go on a Weds or Sat for curry. We had saltfish curry and it was utterly delicious! The ladies who own/run the restaurant are friendly, welcoming and attentive. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful evening on Friday night at Island Plates. Local vocalists entertained us throughout the evening, the food was delicious, and the pricing was very reasonable for such a special night! Try Friday evenings for the Music Night with a special menu. We will be back!

When I heard we were going to eat lunch in a car park I was not filled with enthusiasm. How wrong I was! The choice of food was very good and interesting. The two sisters delightful and the food really really tasty. I particularly liked the chickens wandering about.

This place might not have the location and views which other restaurants offer but they certainly outweigh them when it comes to the friendly service and delicious food. We had the curry and it was excellent. The chef came out and had a long chat with us and checked everything was good. If we'd had more time we would definitely... More
