Yesterday I celebrated my 53rd year of living. My husband and I had lunch at Champers, one of my favorite restaurants on the south coast of Barbados. It was a cloudy day and we've had some rain earlier in the morning to my delight. The location is one of the best on the south coast. The food was good and very consistent. In Barbados eating out is expensive and hit and miss. The prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. Now good service in Barbados is a rarity to bajans (bay-jans) like me. The visitors say they get good service but when it comes to one of their own, bajans seem to think they should not demand nor give the same service. My motto has always been, I am a firm believer in excellent customer service, I give it and expect to receive it. Cheers to Champers!
