  • Mount Gay Restaurant Barbados
    ❤❤❤🖤🖤 | $$$$$ We’re going to let you in on a little secret. Are you ready? Ok, here it goes: THERE IS MORE TO MOUNT GAY THAN RUM. There is food! Head chef and owner of La Cuisine Gourmande, Elisabeth Lecrenney, serves up an à la carte lunch that is [...]
  • 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 [...]
  • Paolo's Churrasco Barbados
    Everyone loves the idea of beef skewers on tap and Paolo doesn’t fail to deliver on quantity; you definitely walk out rolling. If you’re a big beef-fan you might not find that the meat is for you but if you come anywhere near a Saturday night you’ll find yourself dancing [...]
  • 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 [...]
  • The Good Life Barbados
    This is one of the only vegan restaurant on the island… Not vegetarian, vegan. No feta in that salad! But they do serve the staple alcohols so all is not lost. In fact they have one of the best smoothies in Barbados and they do a pretty good Sunday brunch too. Their salads are [...]

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 […]

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: […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Beach House Barbados

The Beach House

Did you know that every Sunday The Beach House offers a lunch buffet for 45 BDS? And did you know it’s good? It feels like an eerily well-kept secret where you can get away from everything-Barbados […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
