Cobblers Cove Camelot Restaurant Awarded Restaurant of the Year at Barbados Hotel & Tourism Association Awards
A CHEFS STORY: At the heart of Cobblers Cove, and in a culinary league all of its own, the Camelot Restaurant is the creation of Michael Harrison, the only Barbados-born Executive Chef cooking in a 5 star setting on the island. Chef Michael trained under Michel Roux Jr. at Le Gavroche in London, before working at a number of world-renowned restaurants in Europe and the US before returning home to Cobblers Cove in 2012. Michael has cooked for David and Victoria Beckham President Bush senior, and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
Chef Michael and his team source as many of their ingredients as possible from local farmers and fishermen, to make sure only the freshest, most flavourful ingredients are used to bring the true taste of the island to Camelot guests.
Cobblers Cove’s reputation for excellence in cuisine has earned the hotel its much coveted 5 star recognition from the prestigious Relais & Châteaux group, whose emphasis on food and wine has set the culinary bar at the highest level.
