“Tourist trap - bland food”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

This place is in tatters and worn down. Of course there is a tout downstairs beckoning you in. The view was nice, but that was about it. We ordered 2 fish steak sandwiches and popcorn chicken and fries for our son. Well the bread was not the freshest I've had (falling apart) and the fish was a small, batter fried portion. Tasteless. Overpriced at $26 B'dos. I could have had a better sandwich at half the price at Cheffette. The fries were bland and just a bit undercooked. The chicken was dry and bland. (I ended up taking it home and dicing it into a chicken/mayo mix for sandwiches the next day). What a colossal waste of $47 USD. We had much, much better value for the same spend at Oistins Friday Fish Fry and Guang Dong Chinese restaurant. So, if you are in Bridgetown, eat somewhere else, not Marina Bar & Restaurant.

“Great place”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

We were in Bridgetown for the day and around 11.30 the heaven's opened! We saw the Marina bar and thought it looked dry! It turned out to be a great place to shelter from the rain and enjoy some good food and drinks. Great, friendly service with a smile.

“Upstairs - Top Ranking”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Great value and friendly service makes this a lunch spot worth dropping into for a touch of respite and rejuvenation. Get a seat outside on the shaded balcony with a cheap ice-cold Banks and a, top-drawer, fried fish sandwich- slow down and watch the world go by. Not the most pristine of establishments it must be said but the dog-eared surroundings are more than made up for by the typically warm Bajan welcome and service. Recommended.

“Average food, average service”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The food was underwhelming (fish & chips, chicken sandwich) and the service was rather slow.

The views of the marina and people walking by was very nice -- as was the free wifi.

“Magic Bar and Restaurant.”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

What a place. Dynamite. Excellent atmosphere, food, drink, service in a Prime location overlooking Bridgetown's old harbour. Overlooking the Game fishing boats. Prices are good and so is the food. I will be back. Loved it.
