We pre booked a table for 12 last Thursday night, food and service was good. We were well entertained by the Jazz band preforming on the night.

Lovely in the outside as well as the inside! Sit outside for a good meal (highly recommend catch of the day and grilled shrimp) Good service although it seems to me there are to many tables for a short staff. However it was a great experience hopefully to be repeated!

This is a great spot on the lower level right on the docks. We wanted to sample the local flying fish before heading back to the cruise ship. We had a table outside on the dock, there was free wifi, The service was friendly and the fish was delicious. Would definitely stop again next time in port.

We had one lunch and one dinner in this restaurant. During lunch was nice to watch the boats coming and going. Our dinner was on Thursday, when there is live jazz band playing. Nice atmosphere! Good food and good wines. Nice place to hang out!

We ate here on Christmas Eve. We all enjoyed a lovely meal, great service and pleasant surroundings. Everyone was very friendly . The meal was quite pricey but well worth it on Christmas Eve in Bridgetown! We ate outside and there was a steel band playing Christmas carols which was lovely. There was a good vibe in the place and... More

Interesting location. Not much too see or watch. Kitchen closed unexpectedly while we were there. We were handed menus and then told, Sorry.

Our lovely Host and owner Susan is back in charge thankfully and it shows in the excellent service, ambiance and food which you get from the Waterfront cafe. If you are looking for a laid back evening with some good jazz right on the waterfront, this is the place for you

Thank ClaireMVH
