We went there for breakfast, and it was superb. The food is great, and myself and Mrs. Pidgeon really enjoyed our food. The sisters who run it clearly have a passion and a pride in what they do, and it shows.

No trip to Barbados would be complete without a visit to Island Plates. The welcome from the two sisters is as warm as the Caribbean air, the food is varied, fresh and truly delicious. We visited for morning coffee, lunch and the wonderful curry evenings...More

The service was great, was asked to wait 5 minutes for my lunch and got it in 2 minutes. Both sisters were helpful and made sure I was comfortable and enjoyed my stay. Nice cappuccino as well, I must definitely visit again.
