My favourite restaurant in Barbados. Very enticing diverse menu. For appetizers our party had coconut shrimps, calamari, and amazing honey garlic chicken wings. For mains, we enjoyed perfectly done fresh barracuda, stone-baked thin crust pizza and juicy steak with homemade fries. The portions were so generous there was no room for dessert. The server was very friendly and attentive. And, of course. the view is spectacular.

My husband and daughter ate here on their last trip and insisted that we try it as a family. It was our last night on the island and were excited to have a seaside meal. Unfortunately the sargassum seaweed was everyone and you had to get used to the smell (not their fault), and we had a table near us where a guest kept coughing which made us very uncomfortable. The staff allowed us to move farther away, but I wished they had asked the coughing guest to move/leave rather than us. We ended up eating in a lounge area, folded over our plates. Food was disappointing for Barbados, but drinks were yummy.

The title of this review is anodyne and that reflects our evening. We had a pleasant time and enjoyed our food; it was pricey but good. The cocktails were tasty but the presentation was dull - no style. The open-air terrace is lovely with a great view, but the wide spacing between tables, presumably because of Covid, meant the atmosphere was a bit lacking. We are new to the island and still getting used to its style, but we found the service abrupt and unpolished - for instance, the waitress managed to knock over a glass of water whilst clearing the table - but accidents happen, and it was efficient enough, to be fair. Overall, we had a nice night out, but as we left, we felt more tempted to try some of the livelier surrounding restaurants than to have a return visit.

Had Father's Day lunch here- Castaways has always had the best ribs on the island, but they did change their sauce to be a bit more spicy. This was the first time that we dined upstairs and enjoyed it much more than dining on the main level. The tuna tartare was also very good.

The menu is very limited and the quality of the food mediocre. The staff were good and that is why we didn't get up and walk out. The calamari was greasy and tasted like old oil. And then the catch of the day was chewy like a quickly defrosted piece of old fish. After I told the waiter how I felt he asked if I'd like to speak to the manager who apparently is the owner. I declined because I could not see any point. She came over eventually and asked if there was a problem and I just said no.
When you've eaten at Harlequin done the road from this place you can't accept the bad choices, quality and value of this place.
