“The Best Food in Barbados”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Cariba is a small family owned restaurant with a fabulous relaxed atmosphere. Its not beach fronted, but it's very welcoming and a nice change from of the very stylish restaurants near by. The food is absolutely fantastic, great combinations and so fresh, we really wanted everything on the menu !!!. It is really reasonable with great staff. Cariba should be on everyone's bucket list whilst on the island.

“Great food, comfortable atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The food was wonderful (chicken curry for my wife, swordfish -- the daily catch -- for myself) but what truly set Cariba apart was its atmosphere.

From the jazz music playing in the background, to the covered patio where we could hear the rain pattering against the roof -- we felt a very casual, comfortable atmosphere. It felt like the family had invited us to their home -- and served us a great dinner.

Oh, and the peanut butter ice cream is the best ice cream I've ever tasted (and I do my best to taste a lot :-) )

We're planning on returning during our stay on Barbados.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Had the curry here and it was simply amazing. Quiet at the restaurant but it's also very quiet everywhere this week. We are thinking about going again tonight since it was so good.

“Beautiful!!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is amazing, definitely one of the best. The guy below with the bad review? Crazy, and to think he nearly put us off! The appetisers aren't crisps, they are homemade plantain- delicious, my husband asked for a second portion!! This is a beautiful little house, fairy lights everywhere, very romantic! Aside from the food being fab, we would say as good as the lone star easily, the people are lovely- great chat with the bar man! You won't regret it this is true barbados!

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We were on holiday in Barbados for 2 weeks and were recommended this place before we left. We ended up having 2 visits during our holiday. The atmosphere is very relaxed and homley. The food was fantastic, and we have been trying to re-create the cocktails we had ever since!
