What a fabulous setting for a restaurant looks like a ship with all the lights over the ocean side, you can see Large fish swimming as you dine. Food was the best in Barbados we all had steaks and they were superb.

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.
