I only come here because my husband likes to watch the rugby, in the past food has always been just average, the staff are a little on the unfriendly side and they can be so slow, they certainly appear not to care about customer service. My chicken roti did not have any chicken, well half a cube of chicken !!... More

I had the flying fish and my husband had the stew. The flying fish was better (I found the stew sauce a little too sweet). The prices were ok and the service was ok. I find the service issue around here to be standard. It's on the beach and we enjoyed the scenery.

You get what you see here.. A nice beach bar, decent menu for lunch etc. TV's showing sport often on. Well worth a stop if you're staying in Holetown.

We all heard about the fabulous "flying fish" sandwich and just had to have one. After paying a cab to take us to Holetown on Barbados to get a flying fish sandwich, we were totally disappointed. The sandwich (best on the island we were told) was small, almost tasteless, and came on an old bun situated on a Styrofoam plate.... More

We went to enjoy the music and dine, have a couple drinks. We ordered the catch of the day. Some of our party ordered theirs prepared differently, as this is an option. They all came prepared the same way. We found the fish to be over cooked and very dry. Would not go back to eat but would go back... More

Lots of chances to meet locals and holidaymakers alike for a beer and to watch a game. Light meals all do and Good dinners after 6:30pm. Sunday night the steel pan from 7:30 to 9:30 is worth listening to.

Just read a few of the reviews on TA and I'm surprised. We first ate here while driving up the West Coast and I had a brilliant beef roti with chips. It was really, really good. A little bit of hot sauce and I was in heaven. We were there at lunchtime and it was great sitting in the shade,... More
