Had 2 x morning meals here and one evening meal. all three visits were shockingly bad. Service is terrible, so out of place for Barbados and the food is very disappointing.

good food and a lovely brunch on Sunday. Casual and a nice range of dishes on the menu. Most of the staff were friendly and the evenings were generally pleasant.
