With its white-on-white décor, Cin Cin by the Sea is a glossy address on the West Coast, with a huge glass wall ensuring panoramic vistas of the ocean whether you dine inside or out. Food cleverly combines flavours of the Mediterranean with Caribbean dishes.
For a front row view of the Caribbean Sea and delicious home-cooked food, The Fish Pot is one of our all-time favourites. Nestled right at the water’s edge, the atmosphere is very informal and relaxed. Take the family and watch the sun set as you sample the menu’s mouthwatering delights. Alternatively, The Tides is a gorgeous contemporary restaurant, idyllically located on the waterfront. Boasting spectacular views, it is famed for its delicious fresh seafood.
This is just a ‘taste’ of the island’s dining hotspots – there are so many more offering all sorts of innovative menus and always service with a smile – not forgetting the excellent dining rooms at our featured hotels, which include the aforementioned The Lone Star and also the award-winning Camelot Restaurant at Cobblers Cove, which offers seasonal fresh dishes and fabulous views from its oceanfront setting.
Additionally, many of the islands authentic local restaurants offer exceptional dining experiences. From traditional 'cutter' sandwiches to contemporary cuisine rich in spice and iconic Bajan character. As you'd expect rum is one of Barbados' big passions and you can enjoy a relaxing tasting or refreshing rum tasting at one of the casual rum bars across the island.
Finally, the famous Oistins Fish Fry on Friday nights is an island institution. Enjoy freshly caught fish made to order, whilst lobster, chicken and steak is also available. Live music, dancing and lots of rum make for a high-energy street party that's not to be missed!
In our opinion, Barbados is rightly known as the ‘Caribbean’s Capital of Cuisine’.
