Barbados restaurant...have you dined here?

We're staying at Acrra for one night prior to cruise. Someone suggested we dine at 'Champers'. Need to phone from the US for reservation. Has anyone dined here recently?

We stayed at the Accra last April and dined one night at Champers. The food was very good and within walking distance. Turn left on the street behind the Accra and walk about 1/4 mile, it's on the ocean side (left). The dinning area is up stairs directly over the water. We didn't make reservations but it wouldn't hurt to make them once you're there. Down the street in the opposite direction is St. Lawrence Gap and there are a few places to eat. We ate at Pices and David's both were good. The flying fish at Pices was great. We're going back again this April and looking forward to it. Say hello to Leland and Sherwin at the Accra, two of the friendliest people you'll ever find. Have a great time.

Thanks for your reply re: Champers AND Accra...will give all your 'regards'.
Since you mention 'Pices' would this be a better choice for dinner? Someone just also mentioned 'Brown Sugar'...made reserv. at Champers...but could certainly change if one of the others is a better dining experience.
Thanks again!

Sorry for the late reply. Had some computer problems. Pices would be my choice if I had one night. Pices has a bit more atmosphere. The food is good at both places though. Remember Champers is walking distance.

3 restaurants on the Island are a must:The Palm Terrace at the Royal Pavilion Hotel ia truly beautiful.La Maison is gorgeous(you must get a seaside table) & Carambola is very romantic.The food is very good at all of these restaurants but the decor & atmosphere is as good as you'll find anywhere .These restaurants are on the West Coast of Barbados so if your staying at a west coast hotel, it should be easy to get to all of them.The reataurant at Sandy Lane Hotel is supposed to be great(I've not been there though).I've been througout the Caribbean & Barbados probably has the most beautiful restaurants.The best food,however,is on St. Barths.

We dined at Pisces and the meal was terrific. The flying fish, in particular, was outstanding. As we were only in Barbados one night, have nothing else to compare.
Alex is correct in stating that St. Barths offers fabulous dining.

I second the vote for Carambola! It's incredible! Also, add to that, the Cliff and La Maison for the most fabulous meals I've ever had. I would put the Cliff and Carambola above all others! Have a great time in Barbados!

Good mid-range restaurants (reviewed by middle aged folks)

Garden Cafe -gazebo in the middle of the Chattel House Shopping Village (Holetown)

Baku - beachfront, music on Fri., steel pans Sunday afternoon ---- excellent pasta (Holetown)

Pizzazz - open air pizza joint (Holetown) WONDERFUL pizza & everything else REALLY good

The restaurant at The Crane - overlooking the ocean, varied menu - good for lunch

Ragamuffins - indoor, very small, shrimp fixed several wonderful ways (Holetown)

Olives - romantic indoor or or balcony or outdoor eating, shrimp or pasta (Holetown)

Cocomos - outdoor, beachfront, everything's good (Holetown) great to watch the sunset

There's a little sandwich stand in the Gap's Chattel Village, name?, excellent & reasonable

STAY AWAY FROM THE CHEFETTES/BBQ BARNS. Highly touted but the world's worst fast food. Meat tastes like you don't want to know. Popular cause they are cheap, but cheap because they're really, really awful.

Baku & Olives dress casual elegant in the evening (not formal, but no t-shirts), reservations not usually needed but required (British formality). Start serving dinner at 7pm, ditto Cocomos

Have fun.

Barbados Restaurants -- fantastic. Our 15th trip coming up in October/November 2001. This reply is a bit late for those going in 2000, but hopefully helpful to others.

Carambola and The Cliff -- both on west coast are our favorites for romantic environment, beautifully light Caribbean waters, spectacular settings, torches, tree frogs seranading, and GOURMET food. The cliff opened in 1995 and Carambola has been around lots longer.

Other great places on West Coast include:

LaTerra (gourmet Italian and Mediterranean) and
Olives -- both run by the same Chef.

Baku is downstairs from LaTerra and has great seafood.

The Fathoms is run by the owner of Carambola and is a little more reasonably priced -- lots of seafood.

Nico's used to have great food, but new owners, so not sure if it's changed.

On the South Coast try Shak Shak -- great chef.

In the Gap area, Masquerede's has fantastic coconut shrimp.

Bellini's is ok Italian;

Pisces is pretty good as well.

Overall I'd definitely not miss Carambola and The Cliff -- our favorites.

Please write me directly for any questions anyone may have.

I have not been to the island in several years but will never forget the amazing dinner we had at the cliff. The food is excellent and the atmosphere...beautiful. We have had a lot of friends travel there since...always send them to the cliff and they come back with rave reviews.

Just got back from Barbados. The Cliff is one of the best resturants I have ever eaten at, anywhere. I recommend it to everyone.

They say Carambola, is a 'don't miss' restuarant. I do not agree. The service and food at Caramobla leaves somthing to be desired.

We got married in Barbados two years ago. We thought Pisces food was so-so. We were told the top two restaurants in Barbados were the Cliff (#1) and Josef's, which is in Bridgetown{St James Parish, I believe). The Cliff was very good food, a little pricey. However, we loved Josef's, sat right on the water at sunset approx 6PM. The most memorable time in our life. Going back in Novenember with the kids. Good Luck. Alot to go to in Barbados.
