Went to this spot, as my husband wanted to eat lobster. Staff is rude. They are guaranteed at least 10% gratuity, so service is poor. Food taste was good, as per my husband as there was only steak for non seafood eaters. They are not...More

We heard good things about this place, so travelled all the way from Holetown. It was peak season and the place was empty. They had no lobster so we had no choice but to have lobster tail which was nice, but disappointing and expensive! The...More

One of the best places to get fresh sea food and the most friendly staff and clean water anyone could ask for

To be sure why not email them directly. They are very prompt in replying and very helpful. If you have a Sunday in Barbados then I would recommend the Sunday jazz lunch. It is a great atmosphere.

Apologies for the late response. The managers have been busy with jackhammers and sawdust for 4 months and have neglected their online duties. Things are finishing up now and we hope to announce our opening date shortly... More

The restaurant initially began as a wholesale distributor for the island's hotels and restaurants. Cooked takeaway service was added; along with a friendly free beer while you wait. Shortly after that the health inspector demanded we go the whole way or "wholesale only". This was around 1998. Long time friend and fellow musician with the local VSOP Jazz band "Stu Jenkins" became the resident artist (designer) and we named the up coming restaurant "LOBSTER ALIVE and all that Jazz". We felt our way; with many of the usual restaurant mistakes. But it seems now, we have scored quite well with international critics, restaurant guide books; and our many repeat customers.
