My wife and I had an excellent dinner with rum pairings at the Rum Vault. And everything was augmented with lots of interesting information. A fun evening!

What an awesome night and great way to end our vacation in Barbados. The drinks and food were excellent and the stories about rum were interesting. Will definitely try some of the other offerings at the Rum Vault next time in Barbados.

Overall a fantastic time!

A bit of a rum do!!!! Not withstanding the quality of the rum, the presentation and general ambiance the food was a class apart. I have eaten in all the must go to restaurants on Barbados but the food in the Rum Vault was simply outstanding.

Our experience at the Rum Vault was unique in that we were the only folks there. We learned everything you could possibly want to know about rum and the pairing of our whole dinner with rum was great.

We went on a Friday for the Rum Pairing dinner (set menu).

Corey and Shaquil hosted a fantastic and informative evening centered around rum. You’ll hear similar stuff to what’s on the tour at the Mount Gay distillery but the food and company make it worthwhile.

You’ll share the room with other diners, but with the drinks flowing and Corey entertaining us with stories, as well as the fantastic food (much better than at the main Colony Club dining room) - the evening flies by. Definitely a highlight of the trip and we’ll be returning next year.

It was an experience - not just a dining experience. We loved it. I took my sons, 23 and 21, and my parents 83 and 81. Our run expert, Cory was wonderful. Amazing atmosphere too.

If you are a lover of rum then this is the spot for you. Brings a sophisticated elegance to the world of rum and the setting is cosy and intimate. Server is friendly and very knowledgeable. Lovely for a date night or a casual drink with the boys.

A wonderful experience all round. The food was outstanding and the rum a revelation (for someone who does not really like it, well at least did not like it and now has changed her mind!). The Rum Master made it a very memorable experience. We will definitely "return to the vault"!

A quiet enjoyable evening - - "Flights & Bites" with a limited but delicious food menu and very good rum cocktail pairing. At first we thought the cocktails were pre-selected, but we were pleasantly surprised by some creative concoctions. Top it off with a flight of special rums (Foursquare in my case) and it was a delightfully mellow and educational evening. Very recommended for those who want to explore some great rum and good food. We're hoping to try one of their other pairing events in the future.

I very seldom give 5 star reviews or full points as there is usually room for improvement. Tonight, I gladly deviate from the norm as I give tonight’s experience 10 out of 10. Every single aspect of the evening was part of a collective. It was not an event, but an experience. From the ambiance to the extremely knowledgeable Mr. Corey Sobers who took us on a journey of discovery, to the food, the company and of course, what we came for.... THE RUM, I can truly say that every one should do themselves a favour and give The Rum Vault a try. I have a newfound respect for rum!

The rum vault is an experience.
Experienced rum sommeliers guide through a selection of rum and cocktails paired with small plates.
Not your everyday dinner ! Great to do with friends or a great way to make new friends as I did!

I can't think of anything that would improve the experience we had at the Rum Vault. It's a great concept.

We went on a Friday evening, the Storied Rum experience. The rum and food pairings were fantastic and the service provided by Shane and Corey was outstanding. Their knowledge and enthusiasm for the rum and food were exceptional.

It's not cheap, but the private dining area and the quality of the food make it a great choice for a special occasion.

Unique experience, not so much suited to people who don't like rum as every dish and course has rum drinks. The food is good but the steaks all cooked exactly the same even though one was asked to be medium and two were asked to be rare.
Not much to the beet course but the pork belly was very good but a little dry.
Scotch bonnet in the chocolate was unnecessary and put everyone off the dinner. Too spicy and hot for 90 percent of the population and three shots of rum at the end a bit unnecessary.

The Rum Vault was a very pleasant surprise. We were not sure what to expect but the menu and the cocktails were superb and the history of rum was curated beautiful by Shane and Mr Sobers. Their knowledge of Rum was exceptional almost as good as the rum!!! I would highly recommend the Rum Vault and was one of the highlights of our visit to Barbados.

It was a great experience and very well presented to the guest and well managed

I would suggest when you make pairing of Tapas and Cocktails, is better to taste pure rum before serving it in the cocktail.

This was one of the best decisions for dinner I made. It was a fantastic dinner and cocktails to suit each meal. Props to Shane and cory on the cocktail mixes and educating us on the many rums they have there.
