Contemporary European
The latest hit by husband and wife duo, Larry & Michelle Rogers who are responsible for some of Barbados' most iconic restaurants, including, Olives, La Terra, Primo and Cin Cin. Dockside embodies the quintessential essence of bistronomy, which is best described as taking the finest quality ingredients to create contemporary comfort food using highly disciplined classical techniques. Set in a stunning marina, its organic uber-modern chic blends seamlessly with the relaxed edge of water feel, while still retaining an elusive air of cosmopolitan sophistication. Another phenomenal success by the Rogers duo.

I've been reading the reviews before I visited the restaurant.
No one has lied as it relates to the food and overall service. I was extremely satisfied and the birthday lady was too.
Thank you guys for a fantastic experience and a great end off to a thrilling birthday!

Best food in Barbados!
We love to dine at Dockside and we make sure to bring our guests and visitors. The crudo is spectacular and the welsh lamb is a great favorite. The fish is always very fresh and cooked to perfection. Desserts are beautiful to look at and truly delicious. And Michelle wants you to be happy... she is the perfect hostess!

Celebrated birthday and last dinner in Barbados at Dockside 13/59. Best meal and service in our 2 week stay after eating at all the established and “famous” restaurants. Do not miss Dockside 13/59, a 5 plus star experience.

Had a lovely brunch on Sunday at this restaurant by the marina.
I had a delicious tempura assortment including scallop,prawn,fish. For a main course I had the mahi mahi grilled to perfection with a side salad. My husband had ballotine of chicken with thyme and roast potatoes.
The location was relaxing and service very good. Sometimes Sunday brunch or lunch can be a lively occasion but we really enjoyed the laid back feel they had a talented singer just as background music so a good chilled vibe. Will be returning for sure.

This was unexpected. Made a reservation for 8.30 but our flight landed late and the trickle down effect had us arriving at our hotel at 8.30. We called immediately and they told us to still come. So happy we did. Apart from the large happy table behind us everything was perfect. The food and service were excellent and the ambiance just helps to tip the scale on an experience level. Yes more expensive than many of the other resturants on the island, but heads above. I have eaten in many top resturants around the world with top chefs. This stands side by side. Make the effort and go if you are a foody.

Very special thanks.

really lovely cuisine and atmosphere although we were quietly a twosome...cool too and both Larry and Michelle were very focussed and involved, so, as guests, we felt well taken care of....the celebration (51 tears married) dessert was somehow diverted but we enjoyed what we ordered.

It was our son’s birthday and we didn’t want to go anywhere else! The staff, the chef Larry and his wife Michelle are outstanding. The food is absolutely superb and Larry is a great chef. I came out last November thinking this is the best meal I’ve ever had - and I’ve eaten around the world. Our son was treated so well - even having a personalised birthday menu! A massive thank you to everyone.

We went there last year and this year we went for my husbands Birthday,Incredible food, probably the best I’ve ever had,great service, not too obvious and they presented a delicious chocolate cake with candle for my husbands Birthday.We stayed for three hours and both agreed we had eaten the best meal of the holidays.Tried Champers last night but not nearly as good as Dockside, not as expensive as the Cliff or Tides and much better.

The evening started in such a promising way, with a warm welcome, specials explained and our orders being taken within a few minutes, but that was the height of the service for the evening.

I get that there’s Caribbean time and being sure to make your guests feel welcome, but the staff seemed far too engaged in conversation with tables who had finished their food than serving people who had yet to eat.

Not only did small things such as water top ups take forever (or were non existent) the staff were not trained well to deliver family style food, leaving the table uncomfortably cluttered. We would even take food from the main plates onto our own plates but no one came to remove these now empty dishes - so we had to put them onto other empty tables after waiting for five minutes.

The food was for our guests not what it could have been for the price, and when compared to other restaurants in the same price range on the island. Unfortunately there’s not a lot to do around there once the meal ends, the bar is small and brightly lit - so no chance of redemption with a lively bar and a stiff cocktail.

Don’t get me wrong, the staff were lovely - but just need to remember that there are 40 covers paying the bills, not just ten.

We were treated to a most excellent dining experience at Dockside. This was our second visit and we never would have expected that the quality of the food and the service could have been better than on our first visit, but they were. The excellence of the service was surpassed only by the superb quality of the food and all in an ambience that was beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. We though that we had found the perfect Panna Cotta the last time. However, Dockside has proven us wrong. The current Panna Cotta is the definitive Panna Cotta. But not just the Panna Cotta. We simply adored the Grilled Octopus, the Bao Buns, the Mussels, the Short Rib, the Welsh Lamb, the Scallops and on and on. We had a feast.

We would be remiss if we did not single out our Hostess, Michelle Rogers. Michelle lives and breathes Customer Service. She is the standard to which anyone in the Hospitality Industry should aspire. We were made to feel extremely welcome and were treated more like family than like customers. Michelle, you are truly amazing!! Thank you.

This was our second time at Dockside, and it will certainly not be our last. Indeed, Dining at Dockside is at the top of our Things To Do in Barbados list. Dockside is leagues ahead of any other restaurant on the island. Fabulous. Congrats to Dockside.

First of all, the Service from the Host/Manager Stewart was fantastic. He was engaging and knowledgeable in a way few Restauranteurs are and is a great example to the team. Admittedly, I don't recall our servers name, but he was pleasant. The ambiance is tranquil and romantically lit and the food was spectacular once it arrived though a bit longer than expected. We were told the lamb has to breathe for 20 minutes but I was a bit more than that. They were apologetic and gave us complimentary drinks, a touch which I highly appreciated. Once there, the appetizers and entrees (tenderloin steak and the lamb)were A+. Cocktails were also very well balanced. All in all a great experience!

We had the most amazing experience at Dockside during our holiday in Barbados. Set in a stunning location at the marina in Port Ferdinand. The food is delicious, the atmosphere and staff are excellent and very attentive. We met the owners, Larry & Michelle Rogers, who took the time to welcome guests and take us through the menu. We will definitely return during our next trip in a few months time. Recommend to dine at Dockside if you’re in beautiful Barbados! Thank you so much for a memorable meal and evening.
