I was looking forward to trying a more traditional restaurant in the area but must say I did find the food to be bland which surprised me.

We love this place and usually visit it each time we come to sunny Barbados. The menu is interesting with a good selection of local food. The owner and his wife run the place and do the cooking too! Many locals use it too. Not too easy to find although if you're visiting by taxi you won't have any trouble!

Trying to decide where to eat in St James I found this restaurant which I'd not come across before. The menu looked more interesting than others in the area2, and a little cheaper, so we went ahead and tried it. The place is easy to miss, we overshot and had to turn around, but once we got there we were... More

Our second visit to Cariba, this time for my wife's birthday. They made us feel really special and the food was excellent. The owner and chef came out to greet and thank all of his guests and that coupled with really friendly staff makes it no surprise that most of the diners were repeat visitors. Will definitely go back.

We tried this restaurant based on a recommendation from our driver. Thanks Trevor for this little gem. We had pre-dinner drinks in The Cliff (about 100yds from here) and then came here for dinner. All the staff we very friendly and helpful. The food was really good, subtle twists on traditional dishes and clearly all made from fresh ingredients. The... More

We dined at Caribe and all of us old foodies really enjoyed Caribe. In a world of formulaic eating Caribe stands out with fresh ideas, interesting proposals and just, in a couple of words, great cuisine. The food is, as one would expect from the name, Caribbean, with some lovely different flavours, my main of shrimp noodles was spicy without... More

The restaurant really doesn't look much from outside but don't be put off. Inside it's pretty , the service is friendly and personal and the food is lovely. I had blackened kingfish which was perfectly cooked. Hubby loved the curry too. Would highly recommend it .

This is a great restaurant - not too big, with a seating area on an outside veranda. My main course was the chicken curry which, I have to say, was one of the best (non-Indian) curries I have eaten. The deserts were more limited in scope, but I had the ice cream which was a generous portion. The staff were... More
