My wife and I are not big fans of buffets but decided to give this one a try after being invited (All hotel guests are invited and the cost is $195 Barbadian Dollars per person). It was the Managers Cocktail Party followed by the Buffet. The entire event was held at The Palm. We received excellent service and found the... More

We had lunch on Easter Day here as a family, the staff were very attentive, polite and always went above the call of duty to ensure we were satisfied. An amazing view of the ocean and a remarkable ambiance. The food available for the buffet was nothing less than amazingly delicious. The band provided great entertainment as well, not too... More

Good buffet, good group, cocktail party was a chance to meet management. Enjoyed my time at the cocktail party. My husband enjoyed all the fish dishes at the buffet whilst I enjoyed the pasta bar.

Was very disappointed when we had rearranged to go to this restaurant as we were told it only opened on Tuesdays to get there and be offered a buffet. This was not communicated with us in either of the phone conservations we had when booking, and did not match up to the 'fine dining' experience they had offered or the... More

We enjoyed a delightful evening at one of the Fairmont's fabulous restaurants with fairy light wrapped indoor palms and beautifully floodlit outdoor palms. Our visit was on a Tuesday when we enjoyed a multi-course buffet dinner with live music and of course the sound of the waves as backdrop. The food was absolutely incredible, delicious choices all cooked and presented... More

We have stayed at the Royal Pavilion three times now and the only thing we did not like in the past was its Palm restaurant. Nevertheless, we tried it again this year as we feel it is nice to support the hotel restaurant at least once during our stay. We were very pleasantly surprised to see that the cuisine at... More

Main course fish was also excellent with additional choice of beef fillet and lamb both superb. We have also eaten in their restaurant Taboras again... More

Not a bad effort but typical of the Royal Pavillion, they don't really understand what very good looks like. It was all OK but nothing special and not worth doing.
