Our Guide to Eating Out in Barbados April 1, 2016

Food in Barbados is as vibrant as the island itself. There is an abundance of fine restaurants on the island, offering every kind of cuisine imaginable, and thanks to the wide range of dining options, there is something to suit every taste and budget. A number of chic restaurants in the idyllic seaside settings command a lavish budget, however there are plenty of mid-range and cheaper options that are excellent value. From waterside tavernas to top spots for lunch and the best seafood restaurants, read on for our guide to the best restaurants in Barbados.

The West Coast

The Fish Pot is an old fort and serves up catches that come into the neighbouring fishing community at Six Men’s Bay. The chef cleverly brings out the natural flavours and the setting is beautiful. There is more seafood at the rustic, homely Fisherman’s Pub in the quaint town of Speightstown, whilst nearby Juma’s combines Caribbean, French and Thai cuisine, and offers an inviting three course menu that includes flying fish paté,Thai green curry and rum and raisin cheesecake.

Heading down to Holetown you are spoilt for choice. Sea Cat does British-style fish and chips, but if you are looking to try some local cuisine, go for the amberjack, grouper or barracuda, and if you can’t decide, ask for one of their amazing platters. A little further south and you enter the zone of glamorous waterside restaurants, popular with celebrities. If you are looking for something really special, book in at The Cliff. It is a little pricey, so make the most of your evening by arriving early to watch the sunset with a cocktail on the wooden terrace overlooking a beautiful little cove, before taking a seat for dinner.

The South Coast

The perennial hotspot Champers serves generous portions of quality meat, fish and divine desserts. A beautiful setting for that special occasion, your meal can be enjoyed on the terrace overlooking the waves. Blakey’s on the Boardwalk is famous for its gourmet burgers and grilled fish, while for lighter fare visitors are raving about the waffles and panini’s at Bliss Cafe.

Harlequin is a St Lawrence Gap favourite, with tables out on the deck, jazzy background music and a menu that features meaty king fish, tangy pork chops and pasta dishes. For particular Bajan fair, the fish fry at Oistins is a must. Choose from a variety of Bajan seasoned fish and have it fried or grilled, as you take in the local entertainment and music. There’s also lots of local rum and beer to be enjoyed at the bars while you dance the night away.

The East Cast

The wild east coast inevitably has less choice, but the settings can be magical. The Round House, a historic inn looks down on the palm-fringed shore of Bathsheba and has been going for more than a century. The coconut shrimp and the vodka-lime sauce is recommended, as are the grilled fish sandwiches. If you are looking for something a bit more low-key, casual Dina’s Bar and Cafe is lovely and combines a relaxed atmosphere with friendly service.
