Hi Bajan Dreamer, I was also a little confused when I read a review this week that spoke of a number of staffing changes. Ownership of the restaurant changed about 3 years ago - maybe that was what the reviewer was referring to. I'm sorry...More

Hi Miken, I am so sorry we failed to recognize your wife's birthday. I have asked the manager to investigate to determine why this happened as it was certainly not our intention. Are you still in Barbados? Can you send me an email please -joanne.pooler@chapsrestaurants.com

Had an impromptu lunch here, having been recommended by friends. Very stylish spot with spectacular ocean views. Service was excellent and the food delicious. I suspect dinner atmosphere is even better and the cocktail bar looks great too!

This was our 3rd trip to Barbados from the U.S. We had never been to Cin Cin before and are very happy we found this restaurant. It is now our favorite best restaurant on the island - better the the Cliff.

Agreed, about 20 minutes in a taxi. Super restaurant in a brilliant location. Make sure you book in advance and request a terrace table.

We always recommend making a reservation but we also welcome walk-ins. We might not always be able to offer tables, especially sea side tables, to walk-ins but we usually have some space at the bar for small parties.
