We had an enjoyable evening at Cin-Cin. Food was really good, especially the blackened Barracuda with cous-cous. If you want a lively atmosphere then here is probably not for you....however if you want to chill or have a romantic evening then perfect. Staff were really attentive and friendly which made it a lovely evening to remember....the guy on the guitar... More

On entering their area, you have the feeling of being somewhere in the South of France - very chic, modern, decor in light colours. But the atmosphere turns out to be warmer and friendlier than that. The staff were completely superb and great fun. We had a wonderful corner table for six outside, and it was too dark to see... More

Lovely evening. We were told we had a 2 hour slot before confirming the booking. 2 hours was plenty of time, we did not feel rushed. All our food was excellent and service very friendly. We were asked to call and give credit card details to confirm the booking which we did. We then got another email asking us to... More

Another oceanside restaurant, but with "cleaner" impression than many others. Beautiful white linens, attentive service, good selection of food, very well cooked. A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience.

We found Cin Cin to be a disappointment. After reading such good reviews and hearing even locals tell us how amazing this restaurant was we had high expectations. We made our reservation 5 months prior and We were seated on the far end of the terrace which is behind the kitchen and serving station so was extremely noisy from plates... More

This restaurant is the favourite of friends who visit Barbados every year and we were not disappointed. Nice bar for a drink before the meal and we were given a great table overlooking the beach. My wife said her main course of Seared Scallops were delicious and my slow cooked short rib of beef was very tasty. This restaurant is... More

My husband, our son and I had a wonderful dinner at Cin Cin on our last evening in beautiful Barbados. The setting overlooking and directly above the ocean is out of this world - we sat outside and were in time to watch a beautiful sunset. Our food was all delicious - we ate seafood and meat - everything was... More

Food was awesome, presentation was great and the atmosphere was fun and cool. The service was friendly and the bartenders know what they are doing. There are other restaurants rated higher on TripAdvisor but this should be near the top.

Beautiful setting and fresh new restaurant. Plenty of space between tables. Lots of staff. But everything was way too quick. Menus offered and only later were we offered a drink "wrong order". Then food came in rapid succession. Then bill came at end without me even asking. £200 UK spent in an hour. Waiters too ambitious and chef not timing... More
