Mr Vic bar and restaurant is a must, food is reasonable on price and excellent, best coconut shrimp on the island by far. They have music nights, steel pan Monday and reggae on a Wednesday. Can't wait to be back.

Totally solid meal and friendly service, nothing special but still very good. Worth a visit for dinner if you're in the area rather than eating at the hotels across the street.

We went here as it seemed like a nice local place with good reviews. It was awful, overpriced and terrible food. Do not go here, it ruined our night

I was not working last night but I have investigated your complaint. My manager tells me that you complained that the starters portions were not large enough. Complimentary extra portions were offered and accepted!!!!! Upon presentation of the bill, you complained that you had not expected to be charged for anything. It is regrettable that you did not enjoy your... More

It is a disappointment and rare to receive a negative review, not least as on the evening in question, you were very complimentary about the food and service until you received the bill!!!! Barbados, as I am sure you discovered is an expensive destination. I do hope you enjoyed your stay & you were able to find eateries within your... More

Good food and great atmosphere especially on Reggae Night Wednesdays !! Coconut shrimp is cooked to perfection and the catch of the day comes with a choice of fries, salad or mac pie. You just HAVE to have the mac pie - one of the best on the island. Vic and Karen are great hosts. Friendly, relaxed, casual atmosphere enhanced... More
