Our dining experience
Most meals from breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served in the main restaurant which Is the attractive, open-air, fan-cooled, and pillared restaurant above the pool. We recommend sitting by the open-air windows enjoying both the sprawling view of the pool and greenery while taking in the refreshing breeze.
The breakfast buffet is a substantial spread with pastries, pancakes, with a popular omelette station. The breakfast buffet also consists of local Bajan breakfast classics like fried plantain and Bajan bakes.
During our stayed there was a Caribbean barbecue at The Chattel Bar, the rustic dining spot perched above the jungle gully. The buffet offers a generous portion of steak, ribs, pork and fish, appetising salads, and various cakes, pastries, fruit and cheeses for pudding. A steel pan band and singers provided entertainment too.
