10 days in Sandpiper and the restaurant never disappoints. The barbecues on Sunday nights are great. Fantastic range of fresh fish with great marinades. The chicken and Tuna especially good. We also repeated our wonderful evening on the corner of the decking overlooking the bay with great personal service at the table. Fantastic prawns with scallops in a spicy tomato,... More

Arriving for dinner on foot, we were not so much welcomed on the steps, as challenged before we could cross the threshold. Having validated our credentials, we were led through to the pleasant bar. After some time, our purpose of sitting in the bar was acknowledged. From the extensive drinks and cocktail list, Mrs A's rum punch was quite good,... More

We started with sunset cocktails at Harolds Bar on the beach (a Harolds Smile & a Classic Rum Punch). A lovely view and delightful drinks in a relaxed beachfront area. Went into the other bar, adjacent to the restaurant, and awaited an escort to our table. Cushy rattan chairs, crisp cotton pillows, beach elegant decor. Our order was taken there... More

Had a superb meal at the Sandpiper during our visit over the New Year period. We had not been for a couple of years as the last time we went the food was only average and the staff were less than welcoming. Pleased we gave it another try as this year the food was excellent and the service in the... More

We ate at Sandpiper twice during our recent holiday to Barbados. The restaurant did not disappoint. The fish is particularly fresh and well cooked. We did feel that there were rather too many waiting staff as at one point we had six waiters around our table, but they were only trying to he helpful. The food was delicious and everyone... More

Sandpiper is a must do. The staff are all very professional but also very friendly. I am gluten intolerant and they were very helpful and made it very easy for me to get gluten free dishes. They readily answered any questions and concerns I had and even double checked with the kitchen about my choices. Restaurant ambiance was very nice... More

We visited for dinner on Saturday last and just had to write following a truly excellent evening at the Sandpiper. From Harold's cocktails to the wonderful service at dinner . We enjoyed the band afterwards in a tropical setting. It was our last night in Barbados so wish we had discovered it earlier. It just seemed better and classier than... More

I wanted something different to celebrate my wife's birthday with her. Sandpiper made it happen. We were given a private table for two on the newly refurbished terrace at the waters edge with views all along the west coast of Barbados. Perfect location, exceptional service and fantastic food. A very special restaurant experience.

Leisurely lunch at the bar. Ebby the piano player entertained us for over an hour at the piano. A true gentleman and accomplished jazz pianist. The lunch menu is limited. The mahimahi was very nicely cooked. The flying fish cutter could easily feed 2.
