We’ve been visiting The Cliff for 6 years. Dined there last night. Rip off prices for below average food. Monotonous music. Lives off of its location which is beautiful but that’s all that is good about the place.More

My wife’s words as we left last night. I chose impeccable. Spectacular. The bar got set up high, and The Cliff is sitting on top of that bar. A Bajan experience that will have us coming back most certainly again, and again, and again
