    Frankie's Canteen & Grill: Last or first stop in Barbados

    by Kbgrace Updated Feb 12, 2012

    A side of the road food stand with good eats. Literally right across from the airport. You could drop your bags off and walk across the street for lunch, which is just what we did. One of the few bargains in Barbados

    Favorite Dish: The chicken is good and the souse! Didn't even know what souse when I saw it advertised on a truck earlier that day. Its a tasty pickled pork dish.

    Champers: Most romantic dinner we've every had

    by Kbgrace Updated Feb 12, 2012

    Beautifully prepared food in the most breathtaking location ever, on a cliff overlooking the ocean. Make a reservation for sunset! My husband and I both agree this was the most romantic dinner we've had over the course of our 7 years together, everything from the location, the service, the food contributed.

    Favorite Dish: Loved the tuna, lamb & coconut pie

  • Surfside: Good beachside food

    by Vectorize Written Oct 16, 2011

    Surfside is one of Holetowns hotspots for having a beer overlooking the sea (perfect place to watch the sunset too). Surfside is pricey, even by Barbados standards, however the food is good and the atmosphere here is great.

    Try the Flying Fish Burger here that comes with chips. The blackened chicken ceaser salad is also good. You can have breakfast here: toast & eggs, omelette etc. They do a chicken or beef roti and grilled cheese sandwiches - all come with chips. The 'grilled cheese' sandwiches are more like toasties rather than the american version of 'grilled cheese'. The mozzarella and tomato grilled sandwich is very good. Surfside is not that great for veggies as there is little choice, although this is faily commonplace in Holetown, but veggie's will be able to find something on the menu.

    We didn't have dinner here but the menu looked fine although there were only a couple of pasta dishes as veggie options which isn't always appealing in the Carribbean heat!

    Daiquiri's are good - we tried strawberry and the pineapple ones
    Rum punch is also good but beware, they are VERY lethal!!!

    Surfside attracts locals as well as tourists but is never really overly crowded which is quite nice. The locals are so friendly (as we found everywhere on the island) and you are likely to get chatting to some of them. The bar also shows sports during the day so you can catch up on games as you sip your beer.

    Sunday nights they have a Steel band playing which is good fun and after a few rum punches, you may get dancing to the band like we did!

    Favorite Dish: Meat eaters - Blackened chicken ceaser salad
    Veggies - Grilled mozzarella and tomato sandwich

    Pisces: Eating Fish at Pisces

    by BigBlueOne Written May 18, 2011

    Awesome place that we happened across while walking around in the St. Lawrence area. We actually lucked upon it because from the street you can't really tell but almost every table in the restaurant is directly on the water (by directly on I mean two or three waves actually had drops splash within a few inches of my head, alas, none were a direct hit)!

    Ambience was out of this world and excellent scenery.

    Favorite Dish: Don't remember what I had but everything everyone tried was awesome. Its hard to not like the food when you're sitting on the water.

    Cafe Sol: Mexican in the Gap...Ole!

    by MaineIslandgal Updated Apr 4, 2011

    A taste of Mexico for a change of pace in the Gap. A happening restaurant in the evenings. Margarita headquarters for Barbados as well as good Mexican cuisine.

    This place is hopping on most nights. Reservations not essential but if you see them busy earlier on in your trip it wouldn't hurt to give them a call.

    Favorite Dish: On our evening at Cafe Sol I had banana daiquiris and my boyfriend opted for Banks. We shared an appetizer of taquitos which were tortillas filled w/ cream cheese and jalapenos and then deep fried. We each had Venezuelan shrimp in our respected entrees. They were a bit small in size and the portions were smallish concerning the shrimp but very tasty.

    The Restaurant at Southsea: Hottest restaurant spot in Barbados

    by MaineIslandgal Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A warm greeting from the valet sets the mood for a special evening spent at the Restaurant at Southsea. The hostess gave us the option of going directly to our table or sitting at the bar for a few moments since we were early. We opted for glasses of champagne at the well lit and trendy bar area. After champagne we were escorted to our oceanside table.

    Service is a bit overwhelming since there are at least 5 different people waiting on your table throughout the evening. It was a stark contrast to the mediocre service we had received at other Barbados restaurants.

    The overall ambience was good although the music selection stood out as odd (1980's easy listening pop). The surf does help drown out the music a bit.

    The Restaurant at Southsea is the hottest spot on the island as the buzz from being listed as one of the top 66 new restaurants "Hot Tables" by the reknowned Conde Nast Traveler.

    Favorite Dish: Our food was great but nothing was the best we'd ever had although the grilled marinated conch sliver appetizer was absolutely delicious and something I cannot get a home.

    The Venesuelan shrimp main course was cooked perfectly but the flavors were not standout. Not bad by any means however.

    The final touch to the evening was a white chocolate and raspberry parfait presented in a cup of white chocolate. Very good.

    Sand Dunes Restaurant: Yummy Flying Fish and Macaroni Pie!

    by vabchtraveler Updated Feb 27, 2011

    This little place is a roadside stop in the parish of St. Michael. The eating area is picnic tables under awnings. The food was fresh and plentiful.

    Favorite Dish: We had the fried flying fish and it was mild and delectible. It was served with potato salad, rice and beans, mixed salad, and macaroni pie. Bajan fare at a reasonable price.

    Pisces: A must visit

    by jpud99930 Written Dec 12, 2010

    Pisces has been around since"1972". It's a landmark on the island.They have an international menu and with a subtle West Indian influence.Also many dishes with distinct caribbean flavour.The food I found to be excellent.Try to get a table along the seawall on your right as you enter. The view is great. Prices are average compared to otherws in the area.Just as most restaurants on the island, don't be in a hurry if you want to eat and run. They take their time.

    Favorite Dish: I love fish so I had the flying fish.A Barbadian favorite.

  • The Cliff: Romantic cliff

    by filboy Written Jul 20, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a special romantic restaurant atop a small cliff, overlooking the water. It's valet parking, and the restaurants feels more like a grand house with a great view of the sea. It has several levels but the best tables are along the rails. The food was excellent.... beautifully presented and great saucing. We had a starter, main, a medium priced wine and shared dessert. Our bill came out to about U.S.$175.00 person including tip. Pricey but considering the high cost of everything in Barbados worth it for those special occasions. The service was top notch but not intrusive. This is a very popular restaurant for the very rich and it's good to come early when the kitchen is not very busy. This is my experience with the best restaurants in Barbados. They tend to do great when not busy but quality falls down when it gets hectic.

  • Harlequin Restaurant: Fantastic food, service and atmopsphere!!!

    by agentjanet Updated Apr 12, 2010

    This restaurant has fantastic fresh seafood done on the grill, but everything on the menu is done so well and the prices are reasonable by Barbados standards! Lovely place in St. Lawrence Gap, outside atmosphere has great ambiance with lighting, colours and service to make you smile! You will not be disappointed - I have been numerous times and they are very consistent with quality of food, service and value for money!

    Waterfront Cafe: Scrumptious gateaux

    by joanj Updated Mar 6, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cafe fronts the Careenage in Bridgetown, you can sit out by the boats, or inside.
    There is some live music at certain times (check local free Visitor paper for days etc)

    There is only a small area outside for eating, (see photo), but if you are lucky to get a table, it is nice to be outside.

    Favorite Dish: They serve up the most delicious deserts, but I have eaten a lunchtime hot snack here, and been well pleased.

    Tuesday night is Caribbean Buffet with steel pan music from 7.00 p.m. - 9.pm. $70.00 BDS.

    The Coach House: Popular restaurant

    by joanj Updated Mar 6, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2010 update - this restaurant has definitely moved from the location stated here. It is still in Holetown on the west coast so please look in the guide books for the restaurant pages, or ask a local.

    December 2007 update. I have read the Nation Newspaper and have learned that the Coach House has now moved and taken over where Baku used to be in Holetown, St. James. As I am going in February, I may check this out and put more info on this page.

    This popular restaurant is on the west coast of the island in Paynes Bay, near to Holetown.

    Since this photograph was taken it has changed a great deal outside. Where the patio area is now, (and was where we danced the night away) has been revamped, and the outside seating area changed for the better.

    There is live music most nights, and an extensive bar menu.

    Check posters or the free guide book to determine which musical acts perform on which nights.

    Taken from the Friends Magazine :- Good Food, Live Sports, Beach Bar, Watersports, Pool tables and darts.
    Lunch - Bajan Buffet
    Dinner - A La Carte Menu
    Happy hours 5 - 7 pm

    Happy Days: Best BLT around

    by joanj Updated Mar 4, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The little chattle house serves from 8am - 3pm. Closed on Sundays.

    It also has the internet provided for use.

    Favorite Dish: Lovely BLT on half a large bagette (warmed). Sit inside in the cool, or outside under umbrella's. If you order a BLT and there are two of you, ask for a basket of fries and share, there are plenty.

    There are little chattle shops in the courtyard area.
