Special Needs Barbados Food and Restaurant Guide

Special Needs Barbados Food and Restaurant Guide

There are many fully wheelchair accessible restaurants to choose from in Barbados; serving a wide range of budgets and tastes, Special Needs Travelers will have no difficulty satisfying their cravings.

Get ready to tempt your taste buds!

For ambiance and atmosphere, dine at one of the many sea-side restaurants or relax to the sounds of the steel pan while looking over the Careenage in the historic capital of Bridgetown.

Alternatively, chow down at one of many fast food options available in Barbados.

Food lovers will delight in the unique flavors of the Caribbean. Visit the Totally Barbados recipes guide and try your hand at Bajan cooking.

Alternatively, visit one of the island’s many eateries offering a variety of menu options to satisfy your cravings and meet your budget.

Do it yourself!

For those looking to self-cater, grocery stores are generally wheelchair accessible or visit Bridgetown’s largest fruit and vegetable market for a truly Bajan culinary experience.

Rich with heritage, culture and food take a trip to the Bridgetown Fruit and Vegetable Market for the freshest and most affordable local fare.

Venturing off the beaten path, markets visitors are provided with a unique opportunity to interact with the vendors, learn about Caribbean foods and culinary styles while purchasing the best quality produce available.

It’s best to visit the market early (between 6:30 am – 9 am) Thursday, Friday or Saturday mornings. The Bridgetown market is sometimes crowded and while aisles are wide, they can be difficult to maneuver.
