The hotel staff suggested we try this place for lunch. On approach it doesn't look like much but we were given a warm welcome and sat at the bar with two cold beers. We had the jerk chicken and veggie noodles. It was filling and the chicken really tasty. There are no frills here but the staff like a laugh, the beer is good and there's a steady stream of 80s TV on the battered set on the wall (mesmerising for a 40 something like myself) and it cost us a mere $35 BDS. Give it a go...apparently their menu changes daily and the pork chops are rated by the hotel staff.

Not sure how to rate this. walking distance from the house, where we are staying. several reviews mentioned this and so we went. we booked but no need for it. one table: ours. very friendly service in a sort of surreal environment. quite eery eating by ourselves. they served us crisps as appetizer, which...

i had breaded chicken with veggies and my wife had a dorade.

all ok but still not sure what to say. this is one of the best in st james??? no, not possible.

we spent BD$ 138. a fortune here.

We saw people eating what looked to be good food, so came to sample for ourselves. We both had the whole Red Snapper. Mine was very dry and overcooked, My husband's slightly better. Sweet waitress but pretty clueless and i don't like eating in places where there is no pricing,. Even if you only have your menu on a board, you should have prices listed. Wouldn't go back.

What a delightful little place this is!We were recommended this restaurant by a charming Bajan man we met at the bus stop! The staff were very friendly, welcoming and unobtrusive. The food was utterly delicious. My husband had goat curry (which was surprisingly boneless),rice and chips and I had grilled marlin,macaroni pie and salad. The bill,with 2 beers and a rum punch was less than 60 Bajan dollars (less than £20). Unfortunatly we only found this place on our final Saturday in Barbados and they are closed Sundays and Mondays otherwise we would definatly have made it a regular haunt.

We came here on our last night and got the macaroni pie to take away. It was delicious. I'd love to come back next time we are in Barbados to try their roti as unfortunately they did not have any the night we came. I have heard good things about Karibu though and the macaroni pie did not disappoint. The owner was very friendly too and it seemed like a welcoming place.
