Very bad experience, food was extremely spicy, very limited menu. The decoration is horrible, the bathroom was awful (the door does not lock, very small and really not what you expect for a mid-range restaurant). Our table was on their patio, a frog jumped in my clothes and there were 2 small iguanas walking on the wall right next to... More

Addressing the more important issues regarding this review. First of all you were a group of fifteen(15) predominantly SPANISH speaking individuals. You came to the restaurant after giving us an hour's notice, to which we set a table in the garden room to accommodate such a large group. Did you think we were going to re-arrange a busy restaurant, disrupting... More

Absolutely outstanding high quality food! They provide the best food (including the curry) and the most attentive staff, ensuring we return at least once every time we visit Barbados. Glenn, the chef and owner, visits every table making it the most welcoming restaurant, even spending time to tell us how he makes the curry! This never fails to be our... More

Went here last night. Really nice little restaurant. Starters and main were beautiful and we were to full to sample desserts !! They aren't shy on the measures in your drinks either.. The vodkas and rum sours were Strong but definitely no complaints!

This is the only restaurant we go to twice while we are here its because its very good. The yelliw split pea soup has a buttery scrumptious flavour that just leaves you wanting more and the chicken curry was also superb. What is maybe more impressive is the amount of flavour that they are able to get into plain rice.... More

Cariba was undoubtedly our favourite meal last time we came - way better than any of the better known expensive restaurants. This time we have been trying some other places for the first, mainly in Speightstown. But after a run of average experiences, Cariba seemed to be calling out to us. In a way this became a risk as it... More

Six of us visited Cariba on a Friday night in late March. From the moment we parked our car to the time we left the service was friendly, efficient and swift. The ladies that looked after us were simply superb. As soon as a glass became empty a refill was offered and brought immediately; our orders were taken promptly and... More

We visited Cariba three times this holiday and did not have one bad meal. The special spices and tastes in their food are something. It to be missed. Presentation and service are brilliant. As is the ice cream. You really must try the different flavours.

We went to Cariba's on our first night in Barbados and what a treat! The restaurant is nicely decorated and we dined on what felt like a covered veranda, what with the exterior was all windows. The service was attentive and pleasant. The food was delicious. Lots of variety. I had the tuna. Delicious! A couple of tips, if you... More
