Didn't have a reservation but didn't need one-got there around 6pm and scored a quaint little table by the shore. Service was great- food was great - drinks were great- live music- superb. Exactly the vibe we were looking for. A must when visiting Barbados!

I've been to surfer's cafe so many times over the last few years living in Barbados. There have been good days, but I'm afraid the bad outweigh the good by a long way. There was the time we waited half an hour to get a menu and only got one when my husband went and asked for one, despite being... More

View, food, drinks, vibe surfers cafe has it all. Mix of locals and visitors, haven't found an equal after multiple visits to barbados. Best coffee on the island, including the high end resorts we've stayed at

Went for breakfast at this place and could not fault it. The 5 star to me is the balcony seat overlooking the beach which is absolutely superb. Food and service were also very good.

after we checked first online and saw that they ware open, we saw that this information was not correct, Closed on the Thursday night !! Because the Surfers cafe has such a good reputation we ware disappointed to come to a closed location.

This is a little bar that is a must to visit. Food is great and very good value and the view over the sea at lunch time is breathtaking.

Found Sufers Cafe on the way into Oistins from our hotel. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the wi-if was free (if you bought a drink). My mate and I took refuse in Sufers Cafe when our wife's went on a shopping spree... We returned later in the week and had food from the menu, which was very... More

Wow is the best way to describe this cafe. Spend 9 days near the Surfers cafe and had breakfast there 4 mornings,every meal was outstanding,great breakfats menu. But the added bonus is are the few seats that over look the ocean,be sure to sit there and you can enjoy watching the sea turtles swim and play in the beach .... More
