This restaurant was the best kept secret in Holetown.
The owners were so welcoming and the Tapas food was fantastic.Possibly the best Tapas I have ever had. We enjoyed it so much, we went back a few days later and were not disappointed. The band playing were extremely good and very friendly. They came to chat with all the customers after their performance. The staff couldn't do enough for us, they were delightful.
Try it, you will be amazed.
We will definitely be going again on our next visit to Barbados.

We visited on two occasions during our holiday in July, both times during the day. The cafe is situated in the chattel house shopping village, Holetown. Great service and friendly staff, our male waiter ( sorry didn't catch your name!),gave us lots of local information. We ate roti, fish cakes and desserts, the smoothies are really good also. It's a lovely place to stop when you need some refreshments!
My only regret is we didn't try the tapas nights, we heard the band playing as we were walking past one night and they sounded really good! Definitely will do this next time we visit!

We have been to this lovely bar/restaurant a couple of times on this trip and once before. It is situated in the lovely chattel village in Holetown. The owners and staff are really friendly. It's tapas night on a Tuesday and Thursday and the food is really good at a reasonable price too and as an added bonus they have a great local band playing. The music is really good and they get everyone involved in signing and even dancing. Our young children really enjoyed dancing to all of the songs.

All in all a great evening in a lovely setting with good good and live music. We will definitely be back next year.

Dropped into Cafe Carizma one hot afternoon after shopping. Cajun Mahi mahi sandwich was lovely and spicy. Smoothies are refreshing on a hot sticky day. Service was friendly and prompt. Only problem was the flies, but that's something you have to take on the chin in an open air restaurant in Barbados when it's been raining. Would definitely visit again.
