Champers Restaurant

Reviewed By claudiast - Rockville, Maryland

We had a business lunch in this place and one of the best things of this restaurant is the marvelous location besides the beach. At noon, you are surrounded by the turquoise transparent water and craddled by the noise of the waves on the side.
The food is very good and reasonable by Barbados standards. It is a sophisticated version of bajan food plus international. Service was very good and they managed to give quick service to a large party

That has to tell you something. The food is really good. Our last visit with friends involved full English breakfast and service matched the food. Friendly, unassuming location in the Gap and they do an excellent job. Recommend.

Shakers Bar & Grill

Reviewed By s9mgr - Sheffield, United Kingdom

Set in the middle of a residential estate this is an amazing local restaurant. Not fine dining by any means but a rustic shack with a great atmosphere and fantastic local food. Our steaks were perfectly cooked and the service was excellent.
Highly recommended but be prepared for something different!

Reviewed By maggi r - Barbados

We have turned up a few times before they open and they have been amazing, having been in the trade myself I know how annoying that can be,,, They deserve more than 5 stars just for that,, the service top class the food top class,,, nothing and I mean nothing is too much trouble the whole team rock, I’m laying on my couch eating my take away marlin and jasmine rice, off the scale chef, keep doing what you’re doing and Andre I still want to adopt you and the manager sorry we never got your name but you have been amazing too, see you real soon and thank you the vodka and tonic sisters

I went there last night and had the sword fish, with plantains, breadfruit and mac pie. Just delicious. The fish dinner is $30 bbd and you got enough for two meals. Just had my leftovers and simply tasting. Also, try the rum punch.
I will probably be back every Friday for the next 8 weeks!

Jan and Franks Cocktail Bar

Reviewed By Sue B - Liverpool, United Kingdom

Well what a weird experience! Came here with great expectations after doing my homework on bars and restaurants in the area to visit....asked for a cocktail menu only to be told “didn’t have one” as all cocktails in his head?? Well as being one of those people that only really drink cocktails while on holiday, not really any good to me as I like to choose what I’m in the mood for, played it safe and asked for sex on the beach! ( surely u can’t really go wrong with that) oh boy did he go wrong with that? After sipping on it I realised there was no peach schnapps in it, he then come out to check we were ok with the drink....said there’s no peach schnapps in it, to which he replied , didn’t have any?? Told him he should have told us he didn’t have any and I would have chose something else from that invisible list he has! Sorry but if your gonna offer cocktails then at least have the correct drinks to include!!!

Reviewed By Lucy G

So happy to find a 100% vegan restaurant! Right off a main road, easy to get to. Staff was welcoming. Food was very good. The had dessert, which is hard to find when you're vegan. Also coffee, tea, juice, smoothies and alcohol. After we finished, one of the staff escorted us to a taxi location. Great for vegans, vegetarians and everyone else ... you won't miss the meat!!!!
