We've been to Island Plates at least 20 times over the last 18 months. Why? It's consistently good. Nice fresh food, warm and friendly service and never boring. The Chef, Pat, once told me she likes to bring to her cooking flavours from other islands these nearby and those far away. Hence Island Plates. Fresh ideas is something Pat never runs out of. The January dinner menu had a few interesting dishes eg fish steaks enriched with feta cheese and spinach filling. I tried it once with marlin and another time with billfish. Delicious! My hubby loved his spicy pork curry and other curries Pat cooked.
Seriously if you come to Speightstown this is a must place to try. Marie and Pat are a truly special team. We just can't wait to come back in May!

Actually 4.5

We ate there last night .

The food was cooked to order fresh and was excellent and at a reasonable price . Service was very ,very good , a little Slow at times but not a problem.Unusual setting in corner of car park under a nice small gazebo on raised decking . Not that you would particularly notice . At the end of the day it's what's on the plate that counts and how's it's delivered . There is a lot of trumped up in particular on beach restaurants here in Barbados . Most of which quite frankly are overpriced with mediocre food and service .
The 2 local sisters that own and run Island Plates ( one is chef and the other Foh manager ) genuinely care and that shows in every aspect of there small operation . Well done .
Ps the home made deserts are to die for

I would highly recommend a visit here .

We were staying at Little Good Harbour and heard that Island Plates was worth a visit. We were not disappointed. Had some of the nicest hummus every followed by Caesar Salads. Would have loved to have had dinner there...next time!

Nice little spot adjacent to a parking lot in Speightstown. Had a great breakfast here with friends and a amazing smoothie. I am not sure the ladies name who served us, but it was the best service I received while visiting Barbados.
