We ate at a couple of fine dining restaurants on our trip to Barbados and while Cin Cin is close to the top, in my opinion, the food and service don't quite justify the price. Firstly, the location is wonderful, perched right over the water on a spacious terrace with lots of space between tables. We asked for a sea-side... More

This is a great location and lovely restaurant which we have been to before. The food is very good. Service let them down this time. We had an 8:30pm reservation and felt rushed. Staff started to clear the chairs and tables from the balcony where we were sat before we had finished eating. Not what you expect when you spend... More

Enjoyed a great dinner here. Excellent food, wine and staff. Has a casual feel about the place even though it's modern and up market. Would strongly recommend a visit

Our #1 option for fine dining on the west coast of Barbados. The ambience and decor are very modern and the restaurant is set right on the coast overlooking the water. Appeals to all ages. Very classy restaurant. You have the option of sitting inside or out and there is also a lovely waiting area by the bar if you... More

Greg and the bar/floor team always deliver a super bar and dining experience. An extensive menu that never disappoints whatever the choice. We visit every trip to Barbados and always great. Reservation essential for a waterfront table, but always a good option to walk in and eat casual in the lounge or at the bar.

Cin Cin is one of the best restaurants in Barbados - especially on the West Coast. I have been to Cin Cin many times and never had a bad meal! We have dined both outside and inside (air conditioned). Between Tides, The Cliff, Cin Cin and Nishi you cannot go wrong!

We use this restaurant every time we visit Barbados and have never had an average meal here. The food and service is simply impeccable and the location is perfect too. If you ever have the opportunity to visit sunny Barbados you must try this restaurant.

When we arrived we were shown to a table to await ours being made ready, this was, we believe, merely a way of extracting another 30 dollars Bajen from each of us for cocktails, frankly we would have preferred to have been shown to the waiting table, .........never mind. The waiting staff were attentive and friendly and indeed knowledgeable about... More

Heard very good reports about this restaurant, having visited Barbados a few times I thought we should try it. First good things - Setting amazing and restaurant very clean bright and airy.staff very attentive, friendly yet professional. Food very good but at those prices it should be. Was expecting high prices but this place is very overpriced, wine was extortionate.... More

If you have not been - go. Food, staff, atmosphere wonderful. We ate on the terrace and it was simply the best of the priciest restaurants on the island.
