A taste of Paradise at famous Barbados restaurant, The Cliff

02.03.18

Widely regarded as the Caribbean’s capital of cuisine – Barbados’ bevvy of upmarket dining establishments makes for a journey of culinary discovery. Abode2 pays a visit to one of the top eateries on the island, The Cliff

Executive Chef Paul Owens and his culinary mastery and sense of theatre have combined to create a stylishly refined Platinum Coast dine-out haven, well deserving of its accolade as one of ‘the fi nest dining experiences in the Caribbean’.

Steep steps hug the 10-foot coral cliff on which the restaurant sits over floodlit water with torch lit decks (the restaurant is only open in the evenings) and every candlelit table boasts a sea view.

The food is a culinary splurge from start to finish. Entrees tickle the palate for what’s to follow with tempting appetisers such as snow crab cake with coriander cream and red curry oil, Caribbean shrimp with fried basil and chicken liver parfait with apple and raisin chutney.

Main course selections cover the gamut from traditional dishes such as prime beef tenderloin, duck breast with wild mushroom sauce, veal chop with Dijon mustard to dishes infused with the exotic such as Thai curried shrimp and grilled snapper.

Don’t miss the restaurant’s sinful desserts which include halcyon classics such as crème brûlée with red berry coulis, as well as baked apple crumble and white chocolate cheesecake. The service is discreet with the legions of staff as attentive to mere mortals as the many celebs that visit.

To truly savour the atmosphere - come early and have a pre-dinner aperitif in the swanky upper-level bar. www.thecliffbarbados.com
