Lively and casual atmosphere and a warm welcome. Recommend the coconut shrimp. Service charge not added to the bill which is unusual in Barbados. If tipping leave the cash. Tips on credit cards (apparently) do not go to the staff.

Good food, nice atmosphere. We ordered Papadum Chicken and Spicy Fish apps and coconut shrimp main. All of the food was fresh and great tasting, with papadum chicken the most interesting. Food in Barbados is extremely expensive to begin with, so this place was not...More

we were here a few times, really good food, and reasonably priced. good portion size too. You can't book so you may have to wait for a table, but its not so bad you can have a cocktail while you wait!

We went there for lunch only (twice) and we were very happy with the quick service and tasty food. The coconut shrimps are to die for, decent portion. Would definitely recommend for food, haven't tried any of their cocktails. Nom Nom

We had lunch at Sharkey’s as it was one of the few places open in St Lawrence Gap for lunch on New Years Day. We both had a burger which was a big serving for lunch and not bad value for 40 BBD. It came...More

Food reasonable and good cocktails, but the interminable wait to be served spoilt the visit, especially with small children. Nice setting and friendly staff but the wait unfortunately overshadowed everything, they weren't even that busy.

Watched a couple of Liverpool games here, had drinks, lunch and one day breakfast. Breakfast was around $42 US that was a big breakfast with a drink so not bad value and the food was always nice. The service was a bit slow, only one...More

Sorry for the late reply! And also sorry because I have no idea. Banks is pretty standard in Barbados. I've seen Heineken but in all honesty in Barbados do what the Bajans do drink rum!
