Delicious! - Edit

This is a bit more upscale than the reviews below would indicate--prices were not super cheap--got the feeling that they just renovated. The food was lovely, I had a nice curry and my husband had a wrap. They were big plates of food and the atmosphere was nice. They also had a bar--many of the places you can get vegan food from in Barbados are just take out--this offers a bit more.

Pros: Delicious food., Nice atmosphere., Bar.

This place is everything - Edit

Visited Good Life so many times on our trip to Barbados; there aren't any other vegan places on the island nearly as good. The food is fresh and tasty. The warps and bowls are both good choices (we ordered extra to take back to our apartment) and the chocolate hemp smoothies are life. The Southwestern and teriyaki options are must tries.

Pros: Lots of great options, Food is delicious

Awesome!!! - Edit

Vegan 100%!!!
Excellent food!
We were in Barbados for five days and we ate here everyday!!!
Gail, the Chef is amazing... she cooked our Saturday Brunch from "scratch" ...worth the wait (10-15min.) something she told us in advance.
Ria, the waitress, is also very friendly and
Knowledgeable with her recommendations!!! We love her!!!
And to top it off, we met Naimah there, who's happen to be one of the owners child mother, who also lives in Florida, like us and is a Yoga Instructor there!
We will definitely recommend this place to everyone who is VEGAN and want to eat good and fresh food... since they are the only Vegan place in Rockley Christ Church area, Bridgetown.
Good Life!!!!

Pros: 100% Vegan!

amazing! - Edit

This place was right across the street from our hotel (Accra Beach Resort) so incredibly convenient, but also amazing! we ended up eating there at least one meal per day (sometimes 2) on nearly every day we were in Barbados. Their Wraps and rice bowls are amazing. I highly recommend the BBQ "chicken" wrap and the teriyaki "chicken" brown rice salad. Hemp smoothies and their coffee drinks are awesome too. And the carrot cake and the chocolate peanut butter brownies were incredible. The servers are so friendly and it's a really enjoyable laid back atmosphere. Definitely go here!

Pros: all vegan and delicious

Cons: none

Hidden gem serving incredible vegan food. - Edit

Our smoothies (Multi Ital), entrées (BBQ Chick'n Wrap and Asian Soba Noodle Salad), and dessert (Gluten-free Brownies) were out-of-this-world delicious. The Good Life is a hidden gem that's worth at least a few visits no matter where you're staying on the island.

Pros: flavor, variety, setting

The Best of Barbados - Edit

Since discovering this place I go there every week for lunch, well, this week it has been everyday. A small place that you would drive straight by unless someone told you about it. Frequented by those in the know and not crowded with tourists. A small set up inside but full of character, wonderful characters and great food. Feel the love! Everyone is very welcoming and the place is very peaceful. Not only is the food for vegeterians but also healthy and this sets it apart from other places in Barbados. The lunch special which is a fresh juice, cooked meal and vegan chocolate cake is a must at only US$10 or BBD20. The portions are a good size and you will not leave disappointed. This small place even has its own Misson Statement! Everyone I have introduced to this place has gone back. I just hope that it does not become too popular and over crowded with time.

Pros: Healthy Food, People and Atmosphere, Price

Cons: Parking on Street, Finding the place
