“Surprising”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We went to Moon Bay several times last year when it was called Opah and it served Greek Food, which we enjoyed. When we visited this year it had changed to Moon Bay and although the food was good, it was no different to any other bar or restaurant and served the same food. We really wanted something different and the Greek food last year gave us what we wanted. If you like lamb, pork, fish dishes that you can get anywhere else you would enjoy the food here but we were disappointed that they did not offer the food that we wanted. We would return but would not consider it anything different, which we did when it was Opah.

“EXCELLENT”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

Went to Moon Bay last night. Drinks and food both excellent. Salad with fish,grilled fish, great Pina Colada. Bartender so friendly, restaurant has nice relaxing ambience. One of the few really great meals we've had here....actually serves healthy food and not the same fried food, starches and burgers that you find many places here. Definitely recommend.

“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

The restaurant is in the Yellow Bird Hotel. The experience was a bit haphazard but also enjoyable. The food was good and service friendly.

“Great service, unexciting menu”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Service was friendly and effective but menu was rather restricted, especially as to bajan items and desserts. View to bay over pool and street was not great.

“One of the best in The Gap”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

The Moonbay Bar & Grill is connected to, but operated separately from, the Yellowbird Hotel in St. Lawrence Gap in Barbados. As a relatively new restaurant in a restaurant-heavy area, the competition is stiff. It shouldn't be because this restaurant is a winner. It has one of the most beautiful settings in The Gap, with unbeatable ocean and sunset views. It also has some of the most reasonable prices in the area, with a staff that makes you feel more like a friend than a customer. In St. Lawrence Gap, you can spend a lot more money and do a great deal worse than the Moonbay Bar & Grill. All it needs is to be discovered.
