National Heroes: Sir Grantley Herbert Adams

Referred to as the father of the independence of Barbados, Barrow formed the Democratic Labour Party in 1955 and won the 1961 general elections. He was the Premier of Barbados until 1966 when Barbados became an independent country and Barrow became its first Prime Minister. […]

South Coast

  • Globe Drive-in Barbados
    ❤❤❤🖤🖤 | $$$$$ Going to the Globe Drive-In is like stepping back in time. Not much has changed from its original setup in the early 90s with Whitney music playing before the movies. It just adds to the retro feel. Watching movies under the stars, though, never gets old. You [...]
  • Apsara Samudra Barbados
    There are only a couple of places in Barbados where you can find some really good Indian food and they seem to be at polar ends of this rock. So if you find yourself closer to the South than the North, head to Apsara. We haven’t fully sampled their Thai [...]
  • Primo Barbados
    People say Primo is ‘West coast menus at south coast prices’ and we’re not sure we agree but it’s certainly waterside dining with a Euro-style menu. So obviously if you’ve just flown 8 hours from London we’re guessing you’re not already hunting down fish & chips for £20. They did get creative with a few [...]
  • Tapas Barbados
    Tapas is one of the few gems on the south-coast that has cashed-in on the fact that the boardwalk is a great place to lime. The location is ideal and the angle is perfect. They even have a small couch outside so you can sip your rosé at sundown… Facing the [...]
  • Curry & Kebab Night Accra Hotel Barbados
    ❤❤❤❤🖤 / $$$$$ When a hotel does something non-Bajan they’re still lining you up for Mother Sally or pan. Truth be told there isn’t a lot that draws us into hotel entertainment because a lot of the time it’s really cheesy… And no matter how much they say Bajan entertainment [...]

Rum Shops

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 Barbados
Rum Shops

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 […]

Chicken Rita's
Rum Shops

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: […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cliff Beach Club Barbados
Food & Drink

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
