How lucky were we that this was the restaurant at our beach resort. I can't praise the staff more highly. They pay great attention to their customers and as a result made our anniversary dinner on our last night a very special memory. The food and wine offers a great selection at very reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend eating... More

We were almost scared off by earlier reviews, but we're staying at Bougainvillea and didn't want the hassle of booking a Saturday night at one of the busier places in town...so glad we decided to take our chances with Lanterns. The service was the best we've found on Barbados so far, and the three-woman group Virgo was performing while we... More

We were staying next door to the Bougainvillea Beach Resort so it was very convenient to walk over and have dinner at Lanterns By The Sea. Even though the service was a little slow, that did not bother us because be were in no hurry. We thoroughly enjoyed dining by the sea, hearing the waves crash and our rum drinks... More

The food was hit or miss, the flying fish sandwich was great. The catch (maui maui)of the day was not. In my entire life I have never returned something to the kitchen to get a different entrée. I did with the catch of the day. It was hard and rubbery and tasted frozen and over cooked. I had four other... More

We had multiple breakfasts here as well as dinner. There is definitely something for everyone and at a reasonable price. Don't leave Bouganvillea looking for something better! Embrace the proximity!

We stayed at the Bougainvillea Resort and thus ate a few times at the Lanterns. Typically the service experience is poor, very slow and also sloppy, meaning that you have to remind several times and your orders still get forgotten. I don't expect speedy service in Caribbean but this is really weak performance. The food has never been a positive... More

We ate there a few times because we stayed at the hotel but no matter what we got we were always disappointed with overcooked and processed tasting food. But the atmosphere is beautiful by the ocean and the service friendly and attentive

The menu is limited and you certainly wouldn't want to visit more than once or twice if you were staying at the hotel, - problem is if you don't have a car 🚗 or take a taxi 🚕 you have no other choice as there are no other restaurants nearby. After saying that the limited food choices are prepared well... More
