Description: Castaways is located at the entrance of the popular and lively St Lawrence Gap on the South coast of Barbados. February 2018 will mark 2 years of operation for Castaways and we are proud that we have won many fans locally as well as visitors from around the world because of the location, fresh, quality food, crafted in house cocktails, along with friendly & attentive service. Management works very hard to ensure standards are kept at the highest level for a great customer experience and we always look forward to welcoming back past guests as well as introducing new customers to Castaways. The restaurant overlooks the picturesque St. Lawrence Bay; the only bay between Bridgetown and Oistins on the south coast of the island. This treats all guests to spectacular panoramic ocean views of the Lagoon.

My wife and I just spent a very enjoying and restful vacation in Barbados. We had the pleasure of dining at Castaways, a mere hop from our hotel. We very much enjoyed our meal as we both had the catch of the day. Service was a bit rushed as we would have enjoyed spacing out a bit more our dishes and take in the beautiful scenery on the outside balcony where we dined.

Turned up without a reservation on the off chance and advised it would be a 30 minute wait, so up to the bar, which has a great view over the bay, exactly opposite Primos. Sat down at a great table right at the front in about twenty minutes by a really helpful waiter. Food was really good, excellent selection of pastas and sea food, service was just about right and the place was full, really busy. The stand out feature is the view and the food is not far behind. All in all, great meal and would definitely return

We enjoyed our evening at Castaways (reserve ahead to get a waterfront table upstairs). Especially recommended: the flying fish tacos and the parmesan-panko crusted flying fish. Good drinks, good service (though perhaps paced a tad too fast). Definitely recommended!

I do not like giving one star reviews, but have no option in this instance for the following reasons

1. Upon arrival, the greeting staff were not at all welcoming either the evening we booked or the evening we dined there
2. The atmosphere in the restaurant is non existent
3. The food was really poor. so much so that one main course returned and the other not enjoyed.
4. The staff were under pressure and quite literally running around completely disorganised and apparently untrained.

I would suggest the reason for all of my complaints lie with the management of this restaurant, as It has a fantastic location, it is clean and nicely decorated, but that is where the good experience ends. On the evening we visited it was very clear that there was no control over the running of either the Restaurant or Kitchen.
