We had a really enjoyable evening with friends here. After 30 visits to the island this was our first visit to this lovely place despite staying just down the road at Mullins. The buffet and service was good and the music was excellent. We will definitely be returning.

We visited De Outback twice whilst on holiday in Barbados. The food, atmosphere and surroundings were fantastic- we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. On the second visit there was band playing who were brilliant. Well worth a visit but watch out for the rum punch - it’s amazing and quite strong!

I recently attending this establishment and upon arrival I was intrigued by the decor and overall ambiance of this little get away...However, sadly that was the best I got from my experience.

I consider myself a foodie and have visited many restaurants across this country and abroad but never have I ever encountered service as poor as this. We sat for over 30 mins without being given a menu, (even tho we made reservations for a table of 16). Staff at the bar were very rude when we tried to purchase drinks so we had to settle for the warm tap water provided. (Yes they could not even provide cold water despite several requests).

As it comes to the tables we sat at, given the prices being charged at this restaurant, it was completely unacceptable. Some of our tables had to be propped up with pieces of card board to stop them from rocking and spilling our warm water and few beers provided by staff when they were finally able to bring them after ordering.

As for the food, I will never know if they are the best at bbq or jerk meats because unfortunately, we waitied for just over 2 hours and still received no food! After asking management how much longer we would have to wait to get FRIES AND GRILLED CHICKEN, we were all given the same bland response, "you will have to wait because as you can appreciate we have 3 full tables tonight". That was the last straw for us so we left since we could not even be given an approximate time as to when our orders would be ready, despite having placed the order two hours prior. It turned out to be a horrible way to celebrate a colleague's birthday and she did not deserve this at all.

On a more positive note, the live singing performances were nice. But if you are going for good food and service, good luck to you.

It pains me to write this but De Outback Bar & Grill needs to do much better than this. Hopefully they can take constructive criticism and do better from here but I certainly won't be back to experience it.

Difficult to respond when the complainant does not tell the full story.
In a full restaurant on a very busy night, groups are given reservation times at the point of making their reservation.
when that group then pushes back their time and also increases the numbers that was reserved for by a significant amount, it will cause problems. Hence, tables not laid up.
The next complainant, a One "Carl B" was in the same group.
As much as we appreciate the complaints to sharpen our skills, a modicum of truth must prevail as most of this content is ????

Went with big group. Tables weren't set when we got there. We had to add another table AND chairs ourselves. Staff was untrained and clueless on everything we asked. Waited over an hour and still food didn't arrive. No facility for debit/credit card payments. Cancelled order and left.

Heard about this place from a friend and went for dinner very surprised never knew about it before it was in a really rustic setting that was very nice the staff very helpful I had the crab cake for appetizer and dolphin and chips with salad it tasted good other had buffalo wings which tasted great it's a really nice and relaxing place to get away from the main stream dinner places the only thing is they don't take credit card I will be back again
