South Coast

  • Mama Mia Barbados
    Mama Mia is the Italian restaurant that reminds you that you’re never too far from home. The pizzas are good, the pasta is good and the desserts are all good too. It does what it says on the tin and you can’t go wrong but there are days when you’ll [...]
  • Cuzz Fish Cutter Barbados
    If you remember your childhood before you became moral about McDonalds you’ll remember how good it tasted. Those were what we call unit-burgers; you weren’t supposed to be able to tell the difference between all of the ingredients but when they came together you would feel something you got no other [...]
  • 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 [...]
  • Primo Barbados
    People say Primo is ‘West coast menus at south coast prices’ and we’re not sure we agree but it’s certainly waterside dining with a Euro-style menu. So obviously if you’ve just flown 8 hours from London we’re guessing you’re not already hunting down fish & chips for £20. They did get creative with a few [...]
  • Santosha Yoga Barbados
    Do one thing daily that challenges you! That’s the mantra for healthy, happy people. Do something new every day. That’s the mantra at ilovethisrock. Do both and you’re winning. If you’re not being challenged then what are you doing all day long? We decided to embrace the challenge of yoga… [...]

Rum Shops

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. […]

Chicken Rita's

Chicken Rita’s

Have no illusions, Rita devised the recipe for the most ridiculous chicken on Earth and no one knows how she did it. There is no copying Chicken Rita and we have come to one final guess: […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Golden Anchor Barbados
Rum Shops

The Golden Anchor

For all the reasons you could choose to seek out rum shops, there is one at The Golden Anchor that stands out: the Thursday night pub-quiz. The island’s one and only Quiz-Master Extraordinaire, Terry, hosts his mind […]

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 has been the […]

West Coast

Pizza at Drift Barbados
Food & Drink

Pizza at Drift

Every Friday and Saturday, Gianluca will be cooking up pizzas in his portable oven at Drift. Good question. Gianluca is the guy who was running the kitchen at Timothy Oulton so if you were wondering what happened […]

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 […]

Zaccios Barbados
Food & Drink

Zaccios

There aren’t enough places in Barbados for pizza but if it’s daytime then Zaccios is the place to go. They seem to have adopted the European formula to beach-with-a-restaurant and they did it well. Their full menu is pretty Bajan but […]

Lunch at Cin Cin Barbados
Food & Drink

Lunch at Cin Cin

Work lunches are getting better in Barbados and, when you realise what Cin Cin is serving, $89 never felt so useful. What’s the biggest problem with work lunches? It’s that we get back from a heavy lunch […]
