National Heroes: Sir Garfield Sobers

The only living national hero and legendary all-round cricketer in history, Sir Garfield Sobers was fifth of six children. At birth he had two extra fingers, one on each hand, which he removed himself during childhood, “with the aid of catgut and a sharp knife.” It’s fair to say that when Sobers was ready to put his mind to something, he was ready to achieve anything.

South Coast

  • Mr Delicious Barbados
    Mr Delicious is basically a bus on the sand at Miami beach that serves you food from so high up you look around in case there’s a step you’re supposed to use. The beach is a actually a healthy, happy spot for Bajans with massive picnic tables and coolers so big you could hide a family [...]
  • Tapas Barbados
    Tapas is one of the few gems on the south-coast that has cashed-in on the fact that the boardwalk is a great place to lime. The location is ideal and the angle is perfect. They even have a small couch outside so you can sip your rosé at sundown… Facing the [...]
  • ArtSplash Farmer's Market Barbados
    Every Wednesday and Saturday, between 8am and 2pm the South Coast has only one place you should be. On a Wednesday it’s the perfect place for a work lunch and on Saturday you should be showing your family what you tasted the other day. The market is a pretty simple [...]
  • Paddle Barbados
    Paddle Barbados has got the perfect location and this is what will keep them at the top of their game. What we discovered was that beginners were able to practise, sheltered from the wind, whilst intermediate paddlers could do some touring around the Carlisle bay shipwrecks and the surfers can catch the [...]
  • Blakey's Barbados
    Blakey’s encapsulates the feeling of South Coast Barbados. That mix of everything at the same time in its own space. There’s the indoors bit, there’s the large terrace, there’s a good menu of international dishes and some pretty specialist-Bajan too. The drinks are good, the TVs at the bar are [...]

Marco Polo is a rum shop run by a hands-on English couple who have brought the best of British to the best of Bajan. All of the Bajan staples are on the menu and they’re a lot […]

Sea Cat Barbados

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 […]

Bar 557

❤❤❤🖤🖤 | $$$$$ How many potholes does it take to force a taxi driver to open a rumshop? Well maybe it’s a coincidence but just as our roads look more like an acne-riddled-teenage face there […]

Wendy’s

Renowned for its BBQ Friday nights, try to get your hands on some ribs before they run out. That said… Eat anything you can. It’s all amazing. Like most Barbados rum shops, Wendy’s will serve you in […]

Lemon Arbour Barbados
Rum Shops

Lemon Arbour

Let’s get this out of the way now. It’s actually called The Village (and it’s in Lemon Arbour) but everyone calls it Lemon Arbour so that’s exactly what we’re going to do here. The food is insane. […]

Spago Barbados
Food & Drink

Spago

There aren’t many Italian restaurants on this rock and between them it’s hard to find the best pizza. Spago certainly has great pizza but given the choice, go for the pasta. We like to compare Carbonaras […]

Rum Shops

Bombas

The nature of a rum shop has evolved with the rolling growth of Barbados and Bombas is a prime example. Owner Wayne is no stranger to international foods and he is not afraid to show […]

Cliff Beach Club

It was a Sunday and officially time to relax and enjoy some good food. So we did exactly that. What else are Sundays for? Within minutes of arrival we had used every superlative in the […]

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 […]
