Things We Learned in 2016

Four for the price of one It turns out that giraffes aren’t one species but four… And nobody had noticed until last year. The genetic mutations between them are so strong that they’re even further […]

South Coast

  • Icetopia Barbados
    If you haven’t already heard about the outdoor ice-skating in Barbados you’ve clearly been living in a hole (or abroad… But you have the internet so there are no excuses). The story is that an Italian guy called Pablo didn’t want to be in the restaurant business anymore and then [...]
  • Naru Barbados
    Ever since the boardwalk was built, the best thing any restaurateur could do was open up a terrace right on the edge. There is little more pleasant than watching the famous south-coast sunsets as runners jog past you with occasional waves and winks. And to be fair there are only [...]
  • Buzo Barbados
    The south coast’s freshest gossip is the opening of a new Italian and there’s no lack of talk. Aesthetically it’s modern and colourfully minimalist.

Carizma on the Hill

Carizma on the Hill is a hidden gem with a wonderfully consistent menu and service to boot. It’s in Sugar Hill which can be intimidating but, truth be told, it’s very welcoming and everything flows nicely. […]

Asian Spice Barbados
Food & Drink

Asian Spice

The Asian Spice you never knew you needed. Most people know that there are two Indian restaurants on the island but actually the third is where the money’s at. It’s so hidden you’ve driven past the […]

Sea Cat Barbados
Rum Shops

Sea Cat

If you haven’t been to Sea Cat then you’ve probably heard that it’s a rum shop deluxe, and that’s exactly what it is. The fish is great and the menu is broken down so easily. Depending […]

Daphne's Barbados
Food & Drink

Daphne’s

Let’s not beat around the bush, Daphne’s of London is an Italian restaurant and so is Daphne’s of Barbados. The Tagliata is a Tuna Tagliata reflecting on the fact that if there is one thing […]
