We waited a eternity for a first drink and over a hour for our main course, this could easily have been made easier by telling us they had a issue with the stone oven. Pizza was okay in quality but the overall service let us down badly, be prepared to wait.

Thank you for your feedback and we truly apologise for the wait you recently experienced. Indeed we had a few problems with our pizza oven last week which lead to these issues. Someone should had informed you about the issues, but it seems that this was not the case. Again we truly apologise and can re-assure you that such waiting times during service do not usually occur. If you are still in Barbados, and wish to try us again please do come over and ask for Mama or any of the duty managers directly.

It was a delightful dining experience with my husband and two children. The staff were cheerful, helpful and catered to our children with the skill which comes from experience. It's cozy too! Last but not least ... the food was DELICIOUS :()

Visited this place once, in the end of July, 2014.

Left with mixed feelings, really.

Pros. Starters and mains were good, as was the service. The sause of their Impepata was one of the best of such kind we ever tried on our trips.


1. Impepata di Cozze (nussels), declared for sharing is so small, in fact, that it is hardly enough for one to taste it. Those, who familiar with the European chain "Léon de Bruxelles", know how the portion for sharing should look.

2. They plainly cheat the customers on the desserts. In the dessert menu we saw wonderful pictures of the elaborated desserts and ordered those desserts. When arrived, 2 out of 3 desserts had almost nothing in common with what was in the menu.

Only the profiterols were OK, while the other 2 was just a horrible mix of the similar ingredients. So, their dessert maker skips on the original design and recipe.

What was worse, the waiters, despite obvious non-conformity of the real desserts to the pictured in the menu, still tried to convince us in the opposite.

No, I would not recommend this place to a friend. Today they skip on dessert recipe, tomorrow they may decide to skip on the main course recipe as well...

I had dinner here and the staff was friendly and the food was very good. I had the soup of the day and was blown away by the flavour. Highly recommended.
