I Love this place! Tuesdays and Thursdays they are open for tapas in the evening. They have live music. Best to book well in advance as they are always full. Breakfast is served in the morning which is really good and caters for all tastes. Lunch too. The staff are really great always smiling!

We heard the live music and crossed the road to investigate this open air bar with outside tables. We stopped for a drink, but discovered it was tapas night (Thursdays) so we stayed for dinner as it made a change. Lovely atmosphere and good food, we even had a dance.

Amazingly friendly staff, beautiful setting, amazing home made fries, very quick service, cold Banks and one of the best rum punches on the island - can’t fault the place - a must visit on Barbados

As a party of four, we visited Carizma a few days previous for breakfast. Tucked behind some boutique shops just south of Holetown, it’s easy to miss this gem of a place. We had previously seen a YouTube video of a live singer and were able to book a table for the tapas evening on the following Tuesday evening.
Our table was booked for 7.30 pm and we arrived via reggae bus (an experience in itself). The staff were very friendly and courteous and the band (a 3 piece guitar band made up of Chris, Kevin and Kevin) were already playing chilled music and the atmosphere was great. This only improved when we were brought our food, which was excellent. I highly recommend the Mediterranean chicken, meatballs and mushrooms (washed down with a few Banks, obviously).
The band continued until around 9.30 with a few classics and some singalongs. Overall, we had a fantastic evening and would thoroughly recommend a visit, but make sure you book early for tapas!

Popped in here for a quick drink whilst in Holetown. Place was doing a busy trade in late breakfast/brunches and food looked good. Looks like a good place to be aware of if you need to stop and eat somewhere. I had already eaten elsewhere but was still welcomed in by the friendly staff.
