We were seated promptly at 7 when the restaurant opens and introduced to our server Trisha who was a very pleaseant young lady, please take into account that these are young people trying to learn the business so please so expect them to serve you like a...

We were intrigued by the five course menu advertised in various menu magazines. Made a reservation for Friday night through our hotel concierge. We showed up for our reservation and the doors were locked. There were a few people in the facility who finally let us in. They confirmed that we had a reservation but told us that all reservations... More

A group of us went to this restaurant based on an ad in a local tourist magazine. It gave examples of four 7 course menus. So off we went. The restaurant is in a hotel located off the main street so one needs to go over the map beforehand. When we arrived, we saw that many patrons were very casually... More

We knew what to expect after reading about the Muscovado Restaurant in Barbados guide book, so we were definitely pleased with everything despite the service being a little chaotic. The food was excellent, the decor exquisite and the music added to the charm though a little loud for our taste. Considering that in Barbados, the restaurants are outrageously expensive, Muscovado...

This is a culinary school that serves meals. The food was a mixed bag, some dishes were very good and others not as good. The service was humorous. Our waitress was like a deer in the headlights when we asked her for anything. We had to get one of the instructors to come over to help her. Basics, like refilling... More

Hard to find when driving, some of the locals had never heard of it, we stopped at garage nearby and they explained that it was actually in the Pommarine Hotel, worth remembering! setting is visually attractive. On arrival there were at least 4 Servers standing at the arrival podium "all talking amongst themselves, so we were just left standing there,... More

We had heard about this place and gave it a try, what a treat! Muscovado is run by the hospitality institute in Barbados, staffed by the students so you may get a hiccup here and there. You are treated to a 6 course meal for only BDS $75 or US $37.50 !!!! plus drinks. It is best to book before... More

Not much out there about this place - but it turned into an excellent experience. The only thing to remember is that this is a school, but other than the anxiousness of the servers, it is easy to forget. It is a full seven course meal. The dishes are chosen by the master chef (instructor) the day of the meal.... More

I happened to be glancing at restaurant reviews on this website after reading the Menu International brochure and saw the review written by Zimali and decided to make a reservation for my wife and I last Friday night for the seven course gourmet meal.

I did quite a lot of research on Barbados before my trip - including trawling through all the restaurant reviews - and yet I had never seen this place mentioned anywhere. I am guessing this the case for most people seeing as I appear to be the first reviewer. The Muscovado restaurant is situated in a lovely little hotel called... More
