Been here about 5 times - always a great lunch. Great service and lovely little setting in chattel village. Cheese toasties are great, feta salad, chicken roti, burger we have tried many different dishes and all good! Reasonable prices and worth a visit!

Accommodated 6 of us late in the day. Friendly staff, so kind and attentive. Run punch was strong!! Bread to start was nice and all the tapas were lovely. Mahi mahi and calamari were best. Love music was a brilliant touch and the atmosphere and decor were tropical. We loved it.

We actually discovered this cafe last year and went all most every day for breakfast . The tapas nights on Tuesday and Thursday have live music , it's such a fun night and the food was delicious. The owner and staff work really hard and are so lovely , nothing is too much trouble .

We have been to the tapas night every time we visit Barbados and have never been disappointed! The quality of food is great and the band 1359 create the perfect atmosphere. In addition, I would like to mention how attentive and knowledgeable the new waitress was, despite visiting on her first night. Would highly recommend to all.

Great welcome, friendly staff, lovely food and great cocktails. It's a shame they only do two evenings a week. Live band really adds to the fab atmosphere. A night not to be missed - book it now.

Attractive surroundings in a garden setting on the Chattel Houses centre in Holetown. Just off the main road but much quieter here. We arrived for breakfast and watched a hummingbird feeding in the shrubs as we waited for our perfectly poached eggs and great crispy bacon to come. They make really good coffee too and they dont scald the milk.This... More

We visited three times while staying with our friends on this island, the food was excellent and the customer service absolutely amazing. Thank you to all the staff and in particular Stephanie. The music by 13/59 was great and added to a lovely experience.
