“Location Amazing! Just go for lunch don't bother staying..way too expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Totally agree review from heb999
Lunch time the place is buzzing, food very hit and miss At dinner seven possible choices of mains but alas only three available... The flying fish was so disappointing.....
The place really does need a good clean. The staff were friendly as we're the guests. The owners were more preoccupied with family matters and chatting to some other guests, obviously regulars. It gave the feeling that we were in the way.
But my biggest gripe would be how expensive this place is. We stayed in room three and our door was opened to show is the "shared" deck had two loungers both occupied, the foot bath pump pulled out and no water in it, so we retreated to our room. It was positively cold at night as we're the showers! I generally dislike leaving negative reviews but felt so disappointed.... Come on Roundhouse get a grip and maybe appoint a manager...

Room Tip: Don't bother, it's not worth the money :(

We went to lunch at the Round House. Although the staff were wonderful, and we were a table of 9. Our lunch turned into a 2+ hour event. This would have been fine, but given the fact that we obviously had a child with special needs some firm of accommodation could have been made. The food was very good and our waitress was very apologetic for the wait. The pulled pork is very good and I would definitely recommend it.

Most beautiful view in Barbados from their outside patio at ANY table. Excellent service and food is outstanding! It is worth the trip to the east coast (short trip on #6 bus from Bridgetown) to visit this incredible place. Don't miss a visit to Bathsheba and the Round House.

My husband, daughter and I visited the Round House for lunch whilst on holiday in Barbados in September 2013. It was recommended to us by fellow guests at the hotel we were staying at, and we were so glad that we went! My daughter and I had what we reckon was the best burger we have ever had - without exception! My topping of caramelised onions and stilton was amazing. The view it out of this world, food and service great, and the sound of the sea unbeatable! Definitely worth a trip - hire a car locally and "do" the island at the same time! The view from the cliffs nearby and watching the surfers out on the waves was fantastic, and you get to see the part of Barbados that ISN'T commercialised!

What an amazing place. Unlike anywhere else in Barbados. The Round House is quaint, funky and quirky. Fantastic food, location, friendly staff and last but definitely not least - the rooms. We stayed in Room 3 and it is without doubt one of the spectacular rooms I've every stayed in. Would love to go back.

Stunning sea views, quirky rooms and excellent staff & service, The Round House in Bathsheba is a place to relax and watch the world go by (surfers in particular). The sound of the sea is ever present & if you're sensitive to noise, you may need earplugs as there isn't any glass in the windows! You quickly get used to the roar of the waves and from room 3 there is the most beautiful view of the beach from the bed. If you want to stay in a slick, modern hotel, this is not for you, but if you want to support local food producers & the community, this is definitely the place to stay. Continental breakfast is included in the room price but there is a wide range of other breakfast choices. The lunches & evening meals are varied and they do Barbadian weekend specials, such as Pudding & Souse (pork) - well worth trying, along with the local beers and rum punch. Nearby is the Atlantis Hotel which offers lovely food too & is about 20 mins walk from The Round House. The Round House is full of character & charm and for a real taste of Barbados, stay here.

This was my 3rd time staying at the Round House. I decided to take a trip by myself for my Birthday this year and it was perfect. The food is great, staff friendly, attentive and fun! This is a laid back down to earth Inn. No Television, no A/C, who needs it, you are on vacation to relax. They do offer free WIFI. I ended up staying in 3 out of the 4 rooms, my choice, and a storm back home enabled me to stare in my 3rd room. My favorite room is Room 3, the views are spectacular of the famous Soup Bowls. The beach is great, most likely you are the only one on it, the weekends get a bit more locals. What I like the most about the Inn, was the comfort of feeling like you are home, due to the staff. Love the owners! You are pretty secluded from much, so taxis or you own car are needed. Taxi's are readily available just ask. I felt safe, being a single traveler and can't wait to go again and visit.

Room Tip: Room 3 is my choice. Wooden shutters open up to view Soup Bowls and Wooden door opens up to the roo...
