Went for a birthday treat with my wife. Valet parking, host welcome, drinks on the verandah, attentive waiters etc., contributed to overall excellent service levels. Tasting menu was good - good variety, local ingredients, well cooked - possibly more expensive than it should have been....More

Brilliant - as expected. Holidaying in Barbados would t be the same without visiting The Cliff. And there’s a new recipe book to buy!

Great tasting menu with 2 different options. Didn't eat one thing that wasn't amazing. The view is amazing as well, especially when they pull the awning back in the beginning. Hard to get a reservation so book ahead!

really enjoyable dinner in a very relaxed atmosphere. The outside setting adds a very nice vibe. Food and wine selection were really good.
