A wonderful place to have a rum punch and watch the sun go down in Barbados after a day on the beach. It's nothing fancy, but the service is friendly and the locations is great.

If there is one thing I am a sucker for is a casual bar/restaurant on the beach and Surfside gets an extra star for that. But as others have said, the food is overpriced and, speaking for what my fiancee and I had, just so-so....More

Nice little sports bar/cafe on the beach. So if you fancy a drink or a bite to eat at good prices its ideal. I had the chicken roti, very tasty. Note the hot sauce really is hot, but very good.

An open sided restaurant / beach bar right on the beach. Tables inside and out. Great food and drink at reasonable prices. If you like football or rugby they have many TV screens showing live Sky sports matches. Just ask when you go in and...More

People rave about this place-I don't get it unless you're there for just drinks. Food is mediocre and expensive for what you get. Really small portions. $30 BBD for 6 pieces of calamari? No thanks. Location is cool though. I enjoyed the steel drum band!!

Great location, but staff who really don't want to serve you. Surly, bad tempered - I am still in Barbados for another week but will take my business elsewhere. Thanks.

We went here a couple times, we liked the catch of the day, and The Godfather bomb drink. Nice calm water to the right of the restaurant too. Signs are posted to not smoke, or try to sell you things, but both still happen a...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Should we ask for a specific table/area if we want to make a reservation for a Sunday evening to hear the steel drums? We'll have 2 kids with us (age 11 & 9). Is the seating outside also? How is that for hearing the drums?

It's totally suitable for kids, there is always other families there when I've been to see the steel band; you can also dance to the band as well. The steel band normally starts around 19:00. Make a reservation if you want... More
Good day, We are looking for a place to watch a US NFL football game on 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm on Sunday, January 22, 2017. I was hoping that you might be able to show the games on one of your televisions. Thank you and please let me know.
