A nice idea that we've tried in Spain. Order your food and then cook it to your liking. I suppose the only problem was that there wasn't enough room for all the food - you only want to cook small pieces of steak at a time and therefore you don't have much space for the uncooked meat. Small complaint but wouldn't stop us returning. Good steak and fish.

This was a great restaurant. We didn't fully understand the concept that the food cooks at your table on a hot stone, but when the hot stones came, it made sense and was very fun. The fish was really fresh, and the service was excellent. Definitely a good place to try!

If you want to try something different, this is the place! They give you a big hot lava block to cook your own food on. It is the kind of place that would be good with a crowd, and fun. Apparently, they have a lively bar scene on weekends but not much on the Sunday Night we were there, it was pretty quiet. The food was good but maybe a little pricey considering you were cooking it yourself, but it was a fun change to have this kind of experience.

Me and my girlfriend recently visited Elbow Room for an evening meal, we stayed nearby in a all inclusive resort but decided to eat out one night, this restaurant did not disappoint! Great service from the moment we walked in. We both loved the idea of cooking on the hot stone, we previously tried this in Switzerland. All the food was fresh and of good quality. When the time comes to visit Barbados again we will definitely revisit Elbow Room.

Great food served on a hot stone, where you cook it yourself in front of you. Not cheap, but definitely a unique experience not to be missed. Friendly staff, and good service.
