We ate at Sandpiper twice during our recent holiday to Barbados. The restaurant did not disappoint. The fish is particularly fresh and well cooked. We did feel that there were rather too many waiting staff as at one point we had six waiters around our table, but they were only trying to he helpful. The food was delicious and everyone... More

Sandpiper is a must do. The staff are all very professional but also very friendly. I am gluten intolerant and they were very helpful and made it very easy for me to get gluten free dishes. They readily answered any questions and concerns I had and even double checked with the kitchen about my choices. Restaurant ambiance was very nice... More

We visited for dinner on Saturday last and just had to write following a truly excellent evening at the Sandpiper. From Harold's cocktails to the wonderful service at dinner . We enjoyed the band afterwards in a tropical setting. It was our last night in Barbados so wish we had discovered it earlier. It just seemed better and classier than... More

I wanted something different to celebrate my wife's birthday with her. Sandpiper made it happen. We were given a private table for two on the newly refurbished terrace at the waters edge with views all along the west coast of Barbados. Perfect location, exceptional service and fantastic food. A very special restaurant experience.

Leisurely lunch at the bar. Ebby the piano player entertained us for over an hour at the piano. A true gentleman and accomplished jazz pianist. The lunch menu is limited. The mahimahi was very nicely cooked. The flying fish cutter could easily feed 2.

We had been recommended this by a colleague, staying in the sister hotel so decided to give it a try, the surroundings are pleasant although a little cramped compared to other hotels, clientele are on the elderly side and quite obviously regulars, staff were very friendly even though we were not regulars, We ordered two banks beers, battered Shrimp with...

We visit Barbados every year but hadn't tried the restaurant at the Sandpiper before. We arrived at 7.30 to find we were the only diners at that point and were seated in a corner. The service was efficient and friendly, the food was perfectly good and the restaurant did fill up nicely later on. There were also two chaps singing... More

Lovely five days at the Sandpiper. Now a perfect size, just slightly bigger than bijoux. Pleasant rooms and good hotel layout. Staff that cannot do too much and exude the local friendlyness. Beach facilities perhaps a trifle to bijou leading to a few germannic tendencies among some of the guests. Food quality was consistently excellent. We will come back to... More
