Worth a visit to this place on second street in the centre of Holetown. We had the steak and the spinach fettuccine which were amongst the best meal of the holiday. A quirky interior creates a conversation starter and it does feel like a special night out. It loses one star for the cost of food which is a little... More

We haven't eaten here for a couple of years, for no particular reason. We had an excellent meal and excellent service. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. We had a lovely table out on the verandah too

After nearly two weeks we finally found a really excellent restaurant. Food was good and beautifully presented, especially the chicken risotto. We had the prawns with apple to start, light and delicious, my husband had lamb shank which was really tender. Portion size was just right, we have found most to be too big so this was the first time... More

Best meal in a very long time and not just in Barbados! All 4 of us loved our appetizer and our main! Service was fabulous! If you can get the balcony table for 4 upstairs, it's fantastic! Like you're in your own private dining room! A little bit pricier than some, but, not at all unreasonable. Definitely going again before... More

Depends who is managing on the night- sometimes great other times offhand! Nice intimate atmosphere but can also be a little soulless. Great Margueritas though!

The Mews is not in the best area of town and doesn't have a sea front location, but it's relaxed, friendly, unpretentious atmosphere and good food make it an excellent choice for lunch or dinner.
