Eating out in Barbados

Although most restaurants welcome walk-in diners, there are many that

are fully booked in advance, especially between December and May, so

reservations are highly recommended.

Sunset varies between 5:30pm in December and 6:30pm in June. An early

evening reservation sipping cocktails while the sun goes down on either the

south or west coast is a wonderful idea.

The quality of the restaurants in Barbados is superb, ranging from fine dining

establishments to friendly beach bars and bistros, so visitors can enjoy a

wonderful variety of dining options while on the island. Wherever you decide

to dine, be sure to try the island’s fresh fish. A very good choice is Mahi Mahi

or Dorado, referred to locally as Dolphin. This moist, flaky fish is absolutely

delicious and is not in any way related to the beloved porpoise, known as

‘Flipper’. Other recommended catches include Flying Fish, Barracuda, Red

Snapper, Tuna and King Fish. Shrimp here are usually very large and very

good. Most of the beef served is very high quality US Prime.

Unless otherwise stated all prices are in Barbados dollars and include 17.5%

VAT. A restaurant bill is usually not presented until it is requested.

Bon Appétit!
