This stunning restaurant not only serves fabulous food but the service is impeccable from the moment you arrive.

Arrive early and have a cocktail while you wait for your table. They have offer some pretty great libations.

There isn't really a bad seat in the house. We sat inside and was just as happy as we had a fantastic view of the water.

The menu is eclectic and modern and it was very hard to choose between the dishes. I finally had the beef carpaccio and spicy tuna as an entrée and couldn't have been happier!

The service made our evening! They were courteous and fun!

I loved every minute that I was there and would go back in a heart beat!

Went in for dinner last week with 2 other couples. We all enjoyed our food very much. The menu was excellent. I couldn't decide what to have...everything looked great. Some of the apps were a bit on the small side, but still very tasty. We had a table outside next to the sea which was wonderful. I would recommend you sit outside to enjoy the experience, i don't think i would have 'loved it' the same way if i was inside.

Chic, modern and the food is simply amazing! One of the best on the west coast in my opinion. Definitely a must for a brilliant night out - have cocktails in the lounge first! The grilled asparagus, beet salad and crab cakes are all great starters. As a main, the braised short rib gets me every time! Always perfectly cooked. The bread and butter pudding is hands down the best on the planet so save room! Every visit leaves me wanting to go back. Service is excellent as well - all round lovely team!

Pricey but good- one of the (if not the) best in Barbados for service and quality. Definitely need reservations as always busy.

We have been here several times for dinner and while the food and service have been good, they have also been inconsistent, which is not what you pay for at these prices. Last night, greeting was polite but by no means charming, let alone warm and that about sums up Cin-Cin. Main courses were OK, but tuna was unimaginatively seasoned and veg was tepid. Desserts were very good. Service varied between excellent and attentive (one waiter) to so cool that we doubted that our request had even registered. On reflection, perhaps "cool" is the aim here; that's fine, even laudable, but it can't come at the cost of the basics - and that includes the food, which needs to be raised a notch to remain competitive with The Tides and The Cliff. And above all, it needs to be consistent...customers should not need to gamble on the service they receive.
