You get it all here. Ambiance of the gorgeous sea, Service with a smile, highly professional and food second to none anywhere. Try the fishcakes...without a doubt the best in Barbados. Lion fish....my personal favourite. We went as a couple on Sunday and then seven...of us attended for lunch on Thursday. Outstanding...Highly recommend.More

We visited Catch 22 on 18th March having read great reviews. As you head north out of Speightstown on the west coast it isn't long before you see signs that lead the way to the restaurant. Given that it's truly of the beaten track we...found it easily even without a map. The gardens in which the restaurant and its adjoining apartments are set are beautiful. In the restaurant itself there are two rows of tables, the front row giving spectacular sea views. The menu is limited but the choices on offer - mainly fish and seafood - should have something to please everyone. As others have said, the Lion fish in white wine sauce is fantastic, as was my catch of the day. I'd also recommend the Bajan fishcakes for starters. This place is the perfect escape and somewhere to chill out, eat well and enjoy a (very good!) rum punch or two. The ladies who served us were all lovely too! We will be back... : )More

This restaurant is in a fantastic setting with stunning views out to sea. The service was good and efficient . There was plenty of choice on the menu but the local Lion fish was excellent. It is a bit of a drive north to get...there but there were plenty of signs and it was easy to find . Would definitely go again . There is also a nice pool overlooking the ocean which you can use for a small charge . Great findMore

It is fair to say that this restaurant is off the beaten track. It is at the very northern tip of the island, but it is an interesting journey and not difficult - just keep going north. The restaurant is on the top of a...cliff with lovely views. There are gardens and a strip of lawn and a flowerbed between the restaurant and the edge with birds, including humming birds. The menu is, sensibly, limited but the food is excellent. We visited twice this holiday. I had the fish cutter and on the second visit catch of the day which was stunning. The food was fresh and hot and the sides excellent. Their rum punch is excellent. The service is attentive and friendly. Even the music is good and not too loud.More

Popped in for lunch after a tour of St Nicholas (Big house and Rum Factory tour), and while it was a bit desolate and end of the island- it was worth the drive. After 4 days in Barbados it was the first restaurant where the...staff greeted you warmly and with smiles. The views were amazing and the food had healthy sized portions. Wasnt super mind blowing but between the friendly and accommodating service, clean location and amazing views - I would recommend as a good stop over point. We had lunch and then ventured off to Animal Flower Caves which was a 1Km from here.More

Having researched this restaurant online, we quite liked the look of the menu. Having decided to go for lunch, we set out on the long, bumpy journey from the South to the very North of the island. The menu was probably about half of that...shown on their website, so we were disappointed from that point of view. We opted for the fish cutter and the chefs fish burger. Both were just ok, nothing exceptional. However, the staff are very pleasant and it’s a stunning setting. I suggest they update their website and save people the possible long journey to get there, for a menu that doesn’t exist.More
