It is a known fact that the staff at Blue Sky Luxury love to eat! We have rounded up five of the best restaurants in Barbados and got candid dining reviews. Check out their list of recommended dishes from the top restaurants in Barbados. We hope our restaurant reviews help you to decide which Barbados West Coast restaurants you need to visit in 2022!

 

In no particular order, here are the top picks:

  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!”

Family Photo
So, you’re planning a
Barbados vacation with the family? We’re confident you’ll have an unforgettable holiday. But we also know what it’s like trying to coordinate activities that the whole family will enjoy. Excursions that are fun-filled and kid-friendly, but also stimulating and interesting for the adults. Is that too much to ask for? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. You’ll be spoiled for choice with things to do in Barbados. So to get you started, here are six Barbados family activities handpicked by the Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Team.

Rasals Water Park

Barbados water sports

For beach lovers, there’s a lot more on offer than sandcastles and sun loungers. For action-packed fun, Rascals Water Park has an inflatable obstacle course – a floating playground with slides, jumps, and more. Carlisle Bay is a great place to try paddle boarding and kayaking. Or check out Freights Bay for surf lessons – the easy-going long waves are great for beginners and kids. Why not join a snorkel tour or learn to scuba dive at one of the many dive shops on the island? Our Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Services can recommend and book the best Barbados water sports activities for you and your family.

Harrison's Cave

Harrison’s Cave

Grab your hard hats and head underground for one of the island’s most spectacular natural features, and a top Barbados family-friendly activity. The interactive tour (aboard an open tram, which the kids will love!) takes you deep into the crystalised limestone cave system that stretches over two kilometers. Discover impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations, flowing streams, deep pools, and even an underground waterfall. Harrison’s Cave is a fun and educational experience, and (here’s an insider tip!) it’s a great activity for those rare rainy days in paradise.

Seaduced Catamaran

Catamaran Cruise

You’re in the Caribbean! So a day on the water is a must and it’s one of our top recommendations for things to do in Barbados. There are several companies offering catamaran day cruises on a join-in or private basis. Most offer two snorkel stops with the chance to swim with turtles and explore a shipwreck, followed by a delicious Bajan buffet lunch and a cruise along the iconic Barbados west coast. Just picture yourself sipping on a rum punch, under sail, looking out at the stunning turquoise waters. The Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Services can recommend the best cruise for your family, and make all the arrangements.

St. Nicholas Abbey Train

St Nicholas Abbey

A national treasure with something for the whole family. The kids will love the ride on the historic steam train that climbs to Cherry Tree Hill with stunning views over the east coast. This is followed by a tour of the great house, rum distillery and of course a rum tasting session for the adults. The estate grounds are expansive and beautiful – lots of room for little ones to explore and run around, and there’s a lovely café serving drinks and snacks. Overall St Nicholas Abbey offers a wonderful excursion that ticks all the boxes for a memorable day out for your Barbados vacation.

Animal Flower Cave

Animal flower cave

Another ‘must do’ for Barbados family activities is a visit to this unique natural feature on the wild and rugged north east coast of the island. Animal Flower Cave is named after the sea anemone ‘animal flowers’ that live in the natural pools, descend the rock staircase into this stunning seaside cave, open to the crashing Atlantic waves on one side. Bring your swimsuit and have a paddle in the beautiful natural pool inside the cave. Be sure to have lunch at the breathtaking ocean-facing restaurant when you return to the ground level. There’s a small playground for children, often with inquisitive goats running around!

Welchman Hall Gully

Welchman Hall Gully

Follow the nature trail deep into this beautiful natural gully which was formed by a collapsed cave system in the centre of Barbados. You can take a guided tour with one of the knowledgeable tour guides, or just enjoy a self-guided visit The path is paved and wheelchair / stroller accessible, so Welchman Hall Gully is a great family-friendly excursion particularly for small children. Our tip is to pack a picnic and take your time. One added bonus is to visit when the monkeys are being fed (usually between 10.30 am and noon).

This is just a flavour of the many things to do in Barbados. Our Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Team is ready to make your Barbados vacation as special as possible with carefully selected activities to match the interests of your family. Priceless memories await!
