Enjoyed the opportunity to grill our shrimp and rib eye steak on hot stones at our dinner table. The seasonings were good as were the toppings which included Bernaise sauce among other options. The sides (whipped garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables) were just the right portion size. We ended our meal with the chocolate brownie topped with ice cream.... More

Very nice concept and good food. We didn't expect much after just walking around Holetown and found this nice little place.

The restaurant has had some effort put into it by the owners, it was nice surroundings and had great music playing. The meat was good so you can't go wrong in cooking it yourself. Nice concept and a bit of a novelty but it's hot work sitting cooking in a warm climate!

We dined tonight st The Elbow Room. What makes this restaurant different is that you cook your own meat or fish on a hot lava stone. Absolutely delicious. My husband and son had the fish and I had the mixed skewer. All were lovely. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended.

Recently took my children (young adults) here to celebrate. We all enjoyed the experience of cooking our meats and seafood on the hot stones. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, the atmosphere pleasant and it's good value for money.

The restaurant is a lovely one with a very nice owner. Of course you cook on your own on a hot stone, but the quality of the fish and meat was always good when we were there. The staff was friendly and attentive.
