I love the fact that they always have a 2 for 1 drink special. The food was excellent and the drinks were also good, but the service was awful. Our waitress made us feel like we were an inconvenience for her and she snapped at my husband and told him he would have to wait his turn when he tried... More

Bright and Happy atmosphere. Nice breakfast! Strong coffee - but they don't serve cream (weird). Fun place to hang out. Food and portions are great.

We love Sharkey's on the Gap, always visit when on the island. Enjoyed a lovely meal this year, and lots of coctails at various times during our stay. Staff are great and prices reasonable.

best cocktails in barbados, great food, Slade and all his staff are so friendly and made us feel so welcome on our first visit, so much so we went back almost every night of our stay. I would recommend this place 100% for food or drinks.

We visited Sharkeys for breakfast, dinner and our regular smoothies whilst strolling past. All the staff were really friendly and chatty, the food was great and they make mega crispy bacon which suits me perfectly. They have indoor and outdoor seating areas to suit everyone. I loved walking past here almost every day of our holiday and just popping in... More

Went in Sharkey's for a drink, had a cocktail which was a bit lacking in flavour. Didn't stay long, as didn't feel very welcome unless eating

I love the vibe of this place. Open walls, breezy, Bob Marley playing in the background - and friendly and prompt service. However, I had the worst fish cakes in all of my days hear. They were greasy, hard, and inedible. I wound up not eating them. When I told the server I wasn't going to eat them because they... More

First dinner we had in Barbados and it did not disappoint! I had the Coconut Shrimp and rice which was the best I have had. My husband had the Pork with Rum sauce and tomato mash which was amazing as well. Nice open air atmosphere where you can sit and people watch while you enjoy a dinner in the gap.

We went for cocktails and there are lush. There always a 2-1 offer. It's good as the island is expensive. They can make anything, just ask. It's a lovely bar. Clean too. Spotless. The food looked good but we never ate the. But the cocktails are lush.

This is the place you have to go to, just to say you went. Everyone seems to know about Sharkey's. We ate here one night and stopped by two other nights for a drink, but never stayed for more than one. The food was average and overpriced, and the drinks were fine, but not remarkable. This place is halfway between... More
