The Full Story

The Cliff

Originally opened in 1995, The Cliff quickly became world renowned as Barbados’ Premier dining destination. Its food, service and ambience were unparalleled. 

Now under new ownership the aspirations have increased from the best in Barbados to the best in the world! The previous structure has been modernised and The Cliff has been replaced with an elegant, sophisticated design. 

Our glass sea facing kitchen allows guests to catch a glimpse of our Culinary Team as they create dishes that excite the eyes and wow the taste buds. 

Our fine wine cellar holds over 1500 varieties of carefully selected wines from around the world chosen by our expert team of Sommeliers by our director of wine, Alessandro Cassano
