We stayed at the Bougainvillea - this place is a very short walk from there. The night we went the restaurant was quiet. We ate outside. Ordered pizza and were not disappointed. Nice thin crust and lots of flavor. Bajan lemonade wad delicious. Very different then what we have in north america. Service was a bit slow, but remember, this is Barbados. Relax. Prices were reasonable and away from all the touristy places which we loved. Next time we will pick up their panini's for lunch.

When we arrived we were taken inside, way too hot so we sat outside. Ordering wine bit of challenge but we ended up with some that was ok. No list, they bring out some bottles to show you. 4 of us ordered salads, entrees, pasta and daily fish and one pizza. Very slow and first food to arrive is one salad and one pasta dish, next comes second pasta and pizza. after some time, two salads arrive followed by the fish from BBQ and then later the last salad. All food was tasty and very good. Find out at time of bill that they only take cash, no mention or note on menu. Only opened in early 2018 and if they can get their service and food delivery on track, they could be a good restaurant.

We arrived here for dinner to be shown to a table for 6 people as they thought the ones behind us were with us! It was raining outside, so we had no choice but to sit inside, but OMG it was so hot. They did put the AC on, at 30C, and it was still hot! Asked for the wine list only to be told they don't have one! So they brought four bottles of wine to the table to show us what they did have! We ordered a glass of red and a glass of white. Sorry but nothing on the menu really stood out for us, so we cancelled the wine which they still hadn't poured 10 minutes later (they weren't busy) and decided to go somewhere else.

Well my father is a long term tourist so he wanted to eat something other than fish. We went to Fort Maxwell to please him. My sister and her husband were with us. His a real Italian. We were all expecting the worse but this place can make real thin crust Italian Pizza that would put most places in Montreal Canada to shame. Service, they were nice but not professionals. The food was great. so I did not care. By Barbados standards, good value for money maybe even a cheap eat. They do not have desert.. If you like olives the olives on my pizza were to die for..
