Went for dinner. Beautiful view. Great food. Had a citrus Basiltini for my drink . Delicious & refreshing. The Bajan Tacos were tasty. Main course, we had the ribs. The sauce on these were a little tangy but delicious! Would definitely have the ribs again!

It's popular so book and ask for a balcony table upstairs which has a great view over the beach and fishing boats. Authentic local dishes tasted good . The wine is pricey and the list limited .

If you can best to phone. We booked our table whilst there through our hotel reception. We also had emailed them via their website booking page but didn't get a reply. Keep trying! Good restaurant & great sea views!

Hi there, the policy is that they don't split bills. Speak to a supervisor once there I'd suggest.

Castaways is located at the entrance of the popular and lively St Lawrence Gap on the South coast of Barbados. February 2018 will mark 2 years of operation for Castaways and we are proud that we have won many fans locally as well as visitors from around the world because of the location, fresh, quality food, crafted in house cocktails, along with friendly & attentive service. Management works very hard to ensure standards are kept at the highest level for a great customer experience and we always look forward to welcoming back past guests as well as introducing new customers to Castaways.

This treats all guests to spectacular panoramic ocean views of the Lagoon.
