Great menu. Close to our hotel. Thought we would be back to sample more but no way. Terrible service - extremely slow and unfriendly. And the food was not worth the wait. Our custom was not valued and we will never return.

A large restaurant less than 10-minute walk from the Hilton hotel and 3 minutes from the Radisson along a lit road at night. Mildly disappointed with our evening visit after reading many of the reviews on TripAdvisor. A great selection of dishes on the menu but nothing quite lived up to our expectations. Friendly service in a nice open sided... More

Went with high expectations. Left disappointed. Slow service and no Eye contact from server, vegetables overcooked and expensive to boot.

Went for dinner on our last night in Barbados. The restaurant feels warm, inviting, and typically bajan. The food is amazing. From the appetizers to the desert, everything was amazing. I had the snapper and my wife had a seafood pasta which were incredible. Brown Sugar will be on our stop next trip for sure!

Brown Sugar is a must for visiting Barbados. It is Caribbean cooking at its best in a lovely setting. We have been eating there since about 1980 and make sure we visit even if it means a bit of a taxi ride. Many local people choose it and it has kept itself true to the area and not let food... More

Excellent food and ambience. A must visit place to experience authentic bajan cuisine. Dining here is akin to dining with a bajan family in their home setting.

We enjoyed our meal here, but the service was slightly lacking. It took a while to get our food and drinks. We were a table of 2 and tables of 5-6 were ordering after us and getting their food first. I know it does depend on what you order, but it was quite frustrating. The food was good, and it... More

The restaurant is all open so that the surrounding foliage enters the restaurant and gives you the feeling of being in the rainforest. You can hear the treefrogs as you eat. Our only worry with the restaurant being so open were the mosquitos, but we only saw one or two. The food was excellent, and we had a very enjoyable... More
