What to Eat in Barbados

An array of Caribbean and international cuisine can be found in Barbados, though the island's fresh seafood is the focal point of many restaurant menus. Gourmet chefs have opened the most sophisticated establishments in the St. James and Bridgetown areas, but you should expect to pay a pretty penny for the experience. Make sure to plan ahead at these eateries since most require a reservation to get in the door. Recent visitors to Barbados mention that the food in St. Lawrence Gap is well worth the price; reasonable prices can also be found in Holetown on the central west coast.

While eating out, you may notice a lack of plastic. Beginning in April 2019, the island banned all single-use plastic, including plastic cups, cutlery and straws, as part of a long-term conservation effort.
