Where to eat in Barbados – a food and dining guide

Whether it’s an outdoor fish fry, a village rum shop or a fine dining restaurant, eating in Barbados is a cultural experience. An eclectic blend of English, Indian and African flavors – seasoned with zingy jerk spices - dishes served offer an authentic taste of the Caribbean. Nicknamed ‘The Land of Flying Fish’, marine and fresh fish are a particular specialty in Barbados, with salt cod, snapper and yellow fin tuna available around every corner of the island.

An island guide to Barbados – Caribbean coastline, island communities and tropical sunsets

White powdery sand, sweeping tropical sunsets and a Caribbean warmth that extends to its locals, Barbados offers one of the most idyllic island escapes. Attracting year-round visitors with its balmy temperatures and glistening Caribbean Sea, unsurprisingly, beachside relaxation and water sports remain the two biggest draws to the island.  Away from the developed west and south coasts, however, a hidden world of rolling limestone hills, lush botanical gardens and colonial museums embody the true spirit of Barbados.
