Closed down. But try De Ultimate.

Closed down, maybe a victim of covid lockdowns.

Excellent flavorful and delicious

This little hid away is a diamond. The food was flavorful and delicious. I enjoyed eating my meal and my husband. Service is a little slow but worth the wait. If your true vegan this is the spot without compromise

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Slow service and a little pricey

Lovely quite vegan cafe

Great place to visit in Barbados my tofu wrap was full of flavour and venue was a little out of the way but worth a visit. The lady with the head wrap was a great host and made us feel very welcome.

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff

Get the mango lassi

The food was good - we had the wrap and the curry - the curry was delicious the wrap was ok, but the best bit was the mango lassi that was made fresh in front of us - it was really thick and almost like a smoothie. Would go back just for that!

It was just off the main road so easy to find. The waiter wasn’t unfriendly but was quiet not super friendly like everywhere else we went in Barbados.

Pros: Mango lassi, Easy to find

Cons: Waiter could be more friendly

Amazing flavors

This was the first restaurant I visited in Barbados and it didn’t disappoint. Myself and my partner ordered two mains and shared. Both were full of flavor and seemed very authentic to the Caribbean. I would highly recommend to others, despite its high prices.

Pros: Local cuisine

Great find , friendly service

Has so many choices and friendly service. Cheesecake was 8.50 US, banana bread slices 3.00 and coconut cake slices were 2.50 each. So other than the cheesecake not bad pricing at all. The wraps are delicious but 14.00 and didn’t come with side. So a bit pricey but the only thing we could find all vegan close to Hilton.

Pros: Vegan desserts ( cakes, breads, cheesecake). , Lots of options , Very friendly

Cons: Pricey , Parking

Extensive menu, nice desserts

Came here a few times and also had Good Life food at the Pirate’s Inn hotel where we were staying. At the hotel, you can order from a condensed version of the Good Life menu. Very convenient! I really loved the Greek salad and gluten free cookie.

Do not miss

We ate here almost everyday of our stay. Very close to Hilton Barbados by car. We ordered so many smoothies, drinks, wraps. Everything was good. Sweetest lady chef and the girl serving us. The dessert was ok fyi. But entrees were scrumptious!

Great smoothies

I ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner here. They were all great. I stopped by and tried several smoothies and I thought they were the best in the area. I’m also gluten free which can be hard, but they had several things I could order. The Asian rice dish was my favorite.

Pros: Lots of choices, Mid priced

Fresh flavorful and great service

Great vegan options full of local flavor, fresh ingredients and good prices. Such lovely service by Aletha. Chef Gail makes her food with love. Please share with vegan and plant-based friends and anyone who loves fresh food. One block off of main road so easy to find. Hope to return soon.

Cute cafe with a big menu

The BBQ chickin wrap was so yummy! We stopped here twice on our trip, and got more to-go! Very cute little cafe with a nice atmosphere and outdoor seating if you want to enjoy the breeze. This is a sit-down restaurant where they serve you. I saw several people who got take out, and that seems like a great idea to call ahead and then take food to the nearby beach. We got wraps to take on the plane home. Our waitress Cherice (not positive on spelling) was super friendly and helpful, not only with the menu but also with questions about the area. They have a pretty big menu, plus lots of specials posted around inside. Serves beer & wine. Reasonable prices. Accepts credit cards.

Pros: Big menu, plus specials, Accepts credit cards

A vegan restaurant worthy of New York, London, LA or Tel Aviv!

We discovered The Good Life during our first visit to Barbados in February 2017, and we went there so many times we were almost embarrassed - it's THAT GOOD! Now, we are back in 2018, and we barely landed at the airport before we made a beeline back to The Good Life.

With an incredibly diverse and compelling menu, complemented by delicious shakes and smoothies, The Good Life is the top Barbados destination for healthy and compassionate eaters who want the best plant-based food this wonderful island has to offer.

Owner Heru was present last night, and we had a great chat with him about the proto-vegan Rastafarian "Ital" movement (think "vital" without the "v") that promotes the idea that everything living has its own energy. The Good Life embodies this sentiment by providing guest with the opportunity to eat exceedingly delicious food in a charming setting, embracing "Livity," the Rastafarian concept that an energy or life-force exists within, and flows through all living things.

That said, The Good Life's food is guaranteed (by me) to delight vegans and carnivores, alike.


Pros: GREAT food, GREAT atmosphere, GREAT service
