  1. Sea Shed
  2. The Lone Star Restaurant
  3. The Tides
  4. Bearded Rose
  5. Baia

 

 

1. Sea Shed

Laissez-fair beach vibe

To start the ball rolling, our Managing Director, Tania, reminisces.

“I absolutely love Sea Shed. It’s the perfect blend of a relaxed, beachy atmosphere paired with great meals and bites. I love the Octopus Carpaccio – so beautiful and always fresh!” 

 

 

2. Lone Star Restaurant 

Idyllic setting, celebrity clientele

An obvious favourite, the offerings at Lone Star Restaurant have made their way into many a heart. (We mean stomach.) It is safe to say there were too many to choose just one for this post. The team suggests ordering the Moules MariniereChicken Tikka MasalaPrawn Thai Green Curry, or Shredded Aromatic Duck.

Follow these recommendations and you are definitely in for a treat!

 

 

3. The Tides

Top fine dining restaurant

“I have personally enjoyed at least two decadent meals at The Tides. Fish has always been a favourite of mine, and the Pan Fried Flying Fish at The Tides does not disappoint. The service as well is worth mentioning. Absolutely impressive!”

This rave review compliments Shernelle, our Concierge Manager, when detailing her experiences at the charming establishment.

 

Bearded Rose

 

4. The Bearded Rose 

Eclectic taste and exceptional cuisine and cocktails

Alexis, our Brand Manager, states in no uncertain terms about The Bearded Rose

“A must-visit! Welcoming hosts, contemporary decor, and mouthwatering fare were the highlights of my dining experience. The Wagyu Beef Sliders were a trio of magic, second only to the fresh, delectable Yellowfin Tuna Tartare. Would I go back? Absolutely!” (Alexis loves food. We believe her.)

 

 

5. Baia 

A journey of the senses

Last but not least, this review was submitted to us by Rachel McCartney, Leader of Brokerage at our sister company, Terra Luxury. New hotspot Baia is located in the historic Speightstown.

“It is honestly so refreshing to have a difference in the cuisine in Barbados – as it is Peruvian. The food is consistently good. The Beef Short Rib is melt-in-your-mouth, next-level awesome!”

Barbados For The Foodies

The Culinary Capital of the Caribbean. To hold this title would be the envy of the region. Yet, through an unspoken understanding, this is what Barbados has been considered for years! With world-class restaurants, international food festivals – namely the coveted Food & Rum Festival – and a local cuisine to keep them coming back, Barbados is a foodie’s dream destination!

From street food and rum shops, to fine dining restaurants featuring Indian, Thai, Italian, Brazilian and French cuisine along with amazing contemporary fusions. The Barbados menu is an arresting one, as the island is home to an exciting variety of tastes, cuisines and accompanying ambiances that are somewhat shocking based on its geographical size. The island has its unique blend of international eateries with worldly cuisine juxtaposed with food vans filled to the brim with local fare and goodies. And, regardless of whether it is the former or the latter that draws them, visitors to Barbados’ shores embark on a goodie pilgrimage when they arrive, visiting different restaurants every night and coming away with vastly different experiences although the common thread is that the food is always exquisite and warming!

Food in Barbados is quality, and in our business is the villa vacation industry, it plays a decisive role when our guests choose their accommodations. While the island offers a bounty of dining options – from the plushest dining chairs to wooden park benches – the option to experience fine food in the comfort of your own villa is at your disposal. Therefore, when choosing a villa many foodie guests pay careful attention to what is available at the holiday home they will be staying at. Many guests are keen to learn and will ask for recipes, a cooking class or even a tour of the market. So, opt to have a chef on hand to create whatever suits your food mood, and rest assured that our culinary team has extensive experience in creating specialty meals such as vegan dishes, kosher meals and so on. To cap it all off, our Concierge team can rustle up masterful sommeliers to pair wines with any meal your heart desires.

But, for those who dare to don an apron and spatula during their stay, feel free to cook up a storm alongside our chefs – or alone – in a kitchen best equipped to your mastery level. Shown below are our top 4 picks villas with the best gourmet kitchens. And, to add even more charm to the foodie experience in Barbados, venture to the local markets, butcher shops and other suppliers while guided by the knowledgeable chefs and cooks on hand.
