“Too much hype”
Reviewed 19 January 2009

Nothing special. The menu lacked anything ‘local’ and was totally uninspired. Food was no better than a gastro-pub in the UK – certainly not I would expect from a Garu Rhodes restaurant. Service was attentive, though far too fast. Our starter arrived within minutes of us having ordered and the main course was served as soon as the starters were taken away.

Overall a gastronomical disappointment. Add to this the heavy price tag and I would sincerely recommend you to stay away.

“Sublime food and a great ambience”
Reviewed 4 January 2009

We visited this restaurant on New Years' Day. As expected, the service was excellent and the food delicious. Each course was a delight, and the attention to detail excellent. We loved the lobster with mango, and the pork tenderloin with pineapple jam.
Nutmeg ice cream was 'interesting' and tasty and our overall experience good. Definitely worthwhile visiting if you are in Grenada.

“What a shame”
Reviewed 15 February 2007

This is a beautiful hotel in an amazing setting, we got married and spent our wedding night here 16 years ago so made a point of eating here as we were visiting Grenada.

The food itself was exceptional and although relatively expensive was still good value for money.

The service was truly awful - the worst I have had anywhere in the world, it completely ruined what sould have been a lovely evening.

In short - do not visit the Calabash when the Manager has a night off.
