Be certain to make a reservation, they are usually packed. The restaurant is quaint,very clean, and the tables well spaced(usually)! The rum swizxles are refreshinly potent! The fish bites are excellent, but the onion rings have a lot of batter. There are a number if local fishnoptions to choose from and the sudes are all locally grown! Fabulous cheesecake!

We visited SeaCat on two occasions on this holiday as we did last year, once again we were bowled over, not just by the quality of the food but also the fantastic friendly welcome from the boss and all of the staff there. First the food, great fish dishes (and some meat of course!) but the emphasis is on the... More

We ate amazing fish but ordered Tuna for our next visit and that was better than any other Tuna on the island . The chef really knows his fish. Staff fantastic - not sure why we don't eat there every night.

If you're visiting the west coast of Barbados, get out of your hotel and head for the SeaCat. Freshly caught fish is the thing here. Your big choice will be whether to choose blackened or grilled. We did both: one blackened (corvalle, a dark meat reef fish) and one grilled (marlin, lightly grilled, served with a delicious marinade. Both were... More

Staff are very friendly and service is quick, food range is reasonable from fish and chips to rather more elaborate dishes, at least listed on menu.

I went with friends to this "no frills" reasonably priced restaurant in Holetown. The food was delicious! I had ceviche followed by lobster. The staff are very friendly and the evening was most enjoyable.

We are here on our first night because we wanted something easy and relaxed. The fish is great, really tasty and well cooked. We didn't enjoy the sweet potato fries, just a bit bland and not that well cooked. Service was great. Attentive and friendly. We didn't have a reservation and the place was full by 8.

Passing the Sea Cat fish restaurant on a Friday evening a take away fish and chip supper seemed like a good idea. We made our order of two portions of pan fried red snapper and fries, everything seemed ok and our order was soon produced, neatly wrapped in polystyrene containers. We were told the fries were complimentary as were the... More
