Really lovely and friendly staff. Really delicious food. The bread and butter pudding was the highlight! The cocktails are good too. Lovely evening.

Basically I used to eat here quite often two to three years ago and although it was never gourmet it was always decent with generously sized portions. Anyway just got back from dinner and boy was it disappointing! The amuse bouche was a few small pieces of deep fried vegetables with no chutney or anything else. Amateurish. The Chicken Satays...

We recently celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in Barbados. This was our fourth visit to the island over a number of years, the last time being a few years ago. Cariba Restaurant, which is relatively new, was recommended to us by friends who hadn't been able to go themselves but said the restaurant had been strongly recommended by others during... More

Visited the Cariba and was made most welcome. A change from the Waterfront restaurants and we were not disappointed. Enjoyed Catch of the Day. Being gluten free I had no problem with choice

Returned to Cariba this year having booked some 3 months ago. It used to be a lovely alternative to the many classic waterfront restaurants of the west coast. It had a certain charm and was based around a chattel house. This year they have just opened a new seating area in a paved area under an awning. We were seated... More

We visited Cariba 3 times this trip and each time the food was very good. Service was friendly and efficient. The chicken curry is to die for. I love my spicy food and this had so many different flavours. I asked them to spice it up a little more than usual and I was glad I did. I would defiantly... More

Fabulous food. Great and friendly service. We have been visiting Cariba since it opened - and it seems to be getting better and better. Service can be a liitle slow when the place is busy - but who cares - you are on holiday!

After our great experience here last time we were sure to return. This time the food was still excellent and beautifully presented however sadly the kitchen was let down by the restaurant staff. After being seated we waited 20 minutes to have our drinks order taken and then had to wait a while again for our plates to be taken... More
