Amazing place, amazing food. We had a main dish as appetizer, called King that was the top point is the night. Service was very good, considering the food is handmade. Don't miss if you are in Barbados!

Hello I do believe I saw high chairs, but I personally didn't ask for one, or have a cute toddler with me to have a need for one! There were families there, however, so I would assume they have them! :)
