A delightful evening meal. My husband and I both really enjoyed our dinner and dessert choices - wonderful flavours and nicely presented. It was above all good value for money. The staff were friendly and attentive.Well done to the sisters. Look forward to our next visit.

Visited Island Plates and while I would say it's lovely if you are visiting the local shops that line the car park it's on the corner of, and want a pleasant lunch considering the dining options available it's certainly just a good place for casual lunch fayre- and is in a different league to the Bajan high fliers of Lonestar,...

Went with my girlfriend on a recent trip to barbs. Local vibe run by two very accommodating sisters. Food was very good and staff attentive. Would go again and recommend this place. Prawn Greek wrap a highlight in particular.

We ate lunch at Island Plates while vacationing in Barbados. I had pasta with chicken and it was delicious! We ate out on a patio with a cat and a chicken! The server (one of the owners I think) was very nice.

We had three wonderful meals at Island Plates during our stay in Speightstown in March. The food was fresh and interesting, and the service from Marie and Pat was completely perfect. They are extremely welcoming and take real pride in the food that they serve. We were lucky enough to attend a Friday night live music session, with a tasting... More

Despite staying some distance from here we did our best to go back as often as possible. This is proper food, a small menu, which is usually a good sign, that is written on a blackboard. The service is great, they are very accommodating, making my wife's coffee to her exacting standards, and spicing up my omelette, very thoughtful with... More

We went there for breakfast and the food was fabulous. The staff was super friendly. I believe they have also a catering service if you are renting and don't feel like cooking they prepare it and bring it to you in your location.

We ate here after seeing other reviews on Trip-advisor, even the locals seem to find it hard to know about the location and after asking at several places (obviously not other restaurants) such as the hardware store, we eventually chatted in the Museum who were very helpful. Sorry getting off track, the food is very good indeed. We ate at... More

It is hard to write this review - because I really wanted this to be a great meal, and the two sisters who run Island Plates are ever so lovely. The simple setting in this the square with the ladies calming working out of a room nearby is super. It felt like a brilliant back-to-basics concept with a great reputation... More

Hello and thank you for choosing to dine with us at Island Plates. We seat at most 20 persons in any given evening and so we believe in keeping the menu simple ; 5 starters, 5 mains, 3 dessert options. This allows us to cook to order in a manageable way whilst keeping everything fresh. On the evening in question,... More
