Fantastic location and worth booking waterside table a few months in advance. Food was generally superb with lobster linguine the highlight and tenderloin though a little overdone, tasty. Drinks in the lounge were delicious and the wine list is extensive. The staff are all very...More

We had a lovely meal at The Cliff while in Barbados recently. The views were stunning, the food was delicious and the staff were welcoming, professional and friendly. The light display in the evening is spectacular. Would highly recommend!

The best restaurant I have ever been in. Wins hands down for friendly staff, fantastic food and possibly aesthetically the most beautiful location for a restaurant. All the restaurateurs who run mediocre/bad restaurants I have visited should go here for a lesson in how a...More

I took my sister here for her birthday and the view did not disappoint. The bartender was also friendly and welcoming.

Our intent was to go to the cliff beach club but they were closed. We ended up at the cliff in the lounge area (limited menu) because we didn't have the appropriate attire. They were very accommodating even though we had no reservations and customer...More

The Cliff is good for a special event, the food is excellent, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the price (around $300 Barbados per person). I had the gnocchi and veal chop, both very well done. The ambiance is almost a little overdone, but...More

Always visit here when in Barbados and it has never let us down yet, from decor through to food and service - superb. Expensive - yes very. Worth it - yes definitely.

Its $285bds per head for a 2 course meal without drinks. We came back this morning and ate at the cliff on Friday night, the bill was $800bds or $400us for 2 of us. The view is sensational but the food was sadly average.
