How about dinner in France? Japan, China, Mexico, Ireland, New Orleans, India, and any of these sound right yet?
What about some good ole Bajan cooking? Casual or Five Star, steak or seafood, eat-in or drive-thru, side of the road or beachfront water’s edge, whatever you are looking for, we’ve got the perfect place to eat and dining experience for you in Barbados.
The best restaurants in Barbados offer an ambiance incomparable to any other.
Our natural surroundings give us such an upper hand for excellent places to eat. You can choose to dine on a cliff overlooking the water where you can enjoy fantastic views of the pale blue Caribbean Sea, scintillating sunsets, or silver moonlight shining on the placid water.
Another day or night, you may choose to eat in a lush garden setting surrounded by beautiful sights and sounds of nature, ensconced with Bajan flora and fauna. Take a trip back in time and dine in an old plantation estate house, imagining you are a part of the opulence of the nineteenth-century lifestyle!
Perhaps just an open-air canopy of stars is more your style, or candlelight on the beach. You can dine in a treehouse in the middle of the island, or a chattel house down an alley, or grab a cutter from a rum shop along the way.
Our local Barbadian, famed, fast food with locations on almost every corner on the island allows you to grab a quick bite to eat on the run. We are full of cuisine and decor choices, and all of this is before the food arrives!
A traditional Bajan lunch often consists of Cou Cou and Flying Fish – our National Dish – although some prefer this dish with Salt Fish instead. Other types of Bajan meals include Baked Chicken, Flying Fish, Macaroni Pie & Coleslaw, Beef Stew, Rice, Pumpkin Fritters, and Cucumber Salad, Corn Beef and Pickled Bread Fruit, Baked or Fried Pork, Corn Pie and Salad; the list – is endless! We also have a tremendous variety of international standard places to eat in Barbados.
Restaurants in Barbados have been mentioned multiple times in the list of the World’s Top Fifty Restaurants. If there’s one thing we Bajans know how to do, is eat! Cooking, serving, eating, all of it, we surely are experts.
The chefs on our island are renowned for their ability to mix international fare with Bajan cuisine to develop something very original. These novel ideas entice the palette, fill the stomach, and soothe the heart.
Most of the chefs working on the island have been trained internationally and come to us from all over the world, which gives us the advantage of varying experiences and styles, ensuring that the guest is never bored with the same old food.
So, whatever great food it is that you are looking for, whether it is steak or all types of fresh seafood, we have internationally trained chefs ready to serve your appetite.
Enjoy the seafood taste of barracuda, mahi-mahi, swordfish, scallops fish-cakes, plantains, specialty coffees, Danishes, beef stew, Five Star dining, etc. casual side the road stop off, fast food locations in Rockley and Hastings serving Roti and Rum Punch.
On the beach, Warrens, in a tropical garden, we’ve got a great place for you to eat in Barbados. Why not try the Fisherman Corner in Speightstown for an experience of a lifetime.
