“Awesome food, full of taste and nice spices”
Review of Waters Edge Restaurant - CLOSED

Waters Edge Restaurant
Description: Bougainvillea’s Water’s Edge Restaurant is quietly tucked away on the East side of the resort, and is well worth a visit for a delightful Afternoon Tea on the beach-side boardwalk; where you will discover a delicious selection of freshly baked scones, cakes and pastries. In this evening, Water’s Edge makes a romantic transformation and offers an exciting menu of international flavours to tempt your taste buds. The “Small Plates, Big Flavours” concept allows you to create your special dinner by sampling several of the tasty menu options. Try the Water’s Edge Bar for the two for one Happy Hour from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm or for evening cocktails in a gorgeous oceanfront setting.

“Awesome food, full of taste and nice spices”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Great food, lamb was my favourite, thought it had a bit of spice to it. Lots of small dishes which we shared amongst friends which was great to see the variety!

Duck was awesome too, service was decently quick, though definitely more laid back than big city life.

Would highly recommend and I have been back and will be again :)

“Water's Edge Restaurant, Barbados - NOT THE HOTEL”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

This is about Water's Edge not the Hotel. We have dined there recently. The place itself is nice, clean and service is excellent. The food... it claims to offer small bites with bursting flavours... but I must say the food was blunt. Chef obviously is interested to make an impression of fine dining but misses fineness of taste. He uses expensive ingredients but can not make them work. I had a ceviche of scallop - was brought in big chunks swimming in vinegar without croutons or bread.. so I felt like Gollum from LOR. Was tasteless also.. Chef did not think/felt through the palate. Should perhaps makes chunks smaller. 2nd dish was a seafood in a coconut broth with rice: rice was old and cold and lumpy, seafood was blunt while advertised as marinated in lemon....Should have been bursting with flavours..y partner had a chicken breast which came with lots of bone in it. In fine dining it would have been a fillet. I suggest that chef should bring more taste not just duplication of fine dining recipes. He has a potential but needs to work on a palate.
