Barbados – January 2013

I’ve been away in Barbados so a quick post on some restaurants I went to, no talk ratings as nearly all these places were outside without music. However if you are going anytime soon, this list gives many varied places to go to for all budgets.

Brady’s bar in Six Men’s Bay – Located in the north west of the island. Braddy's is an unassuming beachside bar where the locals drink beer and play dominoes. It is a bit too rustic for some tastes, but does cheap tasty food (only at the weekends as it is a Fish Fry) in true authentic Bajan style.

Brady's Bar in Moontown

Roundhouse in Bathseba – good but standard fare, you come for the amazing views and rum punch.  Need to book on Sundays if you want an outside table.

Best things about the round house the view and the rum

Mertons in Moonbay then St Elmo’s  - Located in the north west of the island slightly less ramshackle then Brady’s, has waitress service. Still cheap though open most nights I think, but definitely during the fish fry. Opposite is a shop, bakery and bar all in one they do Karaoke some nights. Otherwise lots of men watch the latest cricket/football game there.

Sand Dune restaurant on East Coast Road – a low cost good stop off if travelling along the west coast. They offer a range of sandwiches, fish and stews. Not the quickest service but reasonably priced and a real taste of Bajan home cooking.

Fish pot in Good little harbour – Just after six men’s bay and before moon town on the north east side. Amazing food and fish on the expensive side, but worth it for the views and the service is also good. For a dramatic entrance come by boat and park outside.

Ragamuffins,  Holetown – the area has some nice restaurants, but you need to pay a bit more to get anything haute cuisine, the middle of the road places are very average. We had a curry and it was perfectly serviceable but at a steep £17 it was pricey for what it was.
Lexy’s piano bar – a cringe worthy bar if you want some night life in the week.

Cutters, Crane beach Deli shop on the side of the road, close to the lovely beaches of foul bay, bottom bay and crane beach all lovely. They do a selection of salads and sandwiches as well as daily specials. The deli deliver to the beach if you call ahead and they do a cracking rum punch.

Fishermans PubAtlantis, Bathesba – sister restaurant to the fish pot.  Quality food with amazing views of the rugged East coast. Can get very busy would recommend you book if you want a prime spot on the sea front.

Fishermans pub, Speightstown. A low key pub with an amazing views serves a selection of food (canteen style) open 6 days a week. Cheap and tasty.

Mullins beach restaurant on Mullins beach.  A lovely restaurant casual in the day but very smart at night with more sophisticated food. Great views across the sea too.

Tiki Bar, Holetown.  A paired down version of Mahiki, with treasure chests and more bamboo matting then you shake a stick. Fun place but watch the rum place, I think they do it in litres. Tiki bar light and Rum Punch tankard
