Early evening at The Cliff Restaurant: A Barbados legend
Most people would agree that Barbados is the dining capital of the Caribbean with places to suite every cuisine and every pocketbook.

The west coastline is the home to several good restaurants including The Mews around the corner in Holetown and which is a popular stop for many visitors. This video may also be of interest: Please click here.

Some of the other places we like along the coast include:
  1. Cin Cin by the Sea is a 10 minute drive along the coast and is worth the trip. Say hello to owners Larry & Michelle Rogers. 
  2. Sitar in Holetown: A great Indian restaurant, quite busy, so book ahead; The owner is Ansari Muhajiri, Tel: +1 (246) 432-2248
  3. The Tides Restaurant: A 10 minute walk south, ask for the owner Guy Beasley who is also the chef; Tel: 1.246.432.8356
  4. One of the most famous is The Cliff (click here for the video of Brian Ward the owner)and others include The Lone Star as well as the restaurants at both Sandpiper Inn and Sandy Lane.
After dinner and for other late evening entertainment, you may want to visit some of the hotels to see their different floorshows, including Sandy Lane on Tuesday and Coral Reef on Thursday evenings.
For more information on other nightlife activities and locations, go to the Barbados Tourism Authority site.

These recommendations above happen to be along the west coast and within easy reach of the villa but visitors are encouraged to explore the entire island as there are a number of exceptional experiences dotted along every coast and inland as well.
If you find yourself on the south coast, then don't miss either lunch or dinner at Champers, near Accra Beach. It is a great experience.
If you happen to be along the south-east coast near The Crane Hotel, then make a point of stopping at Cutters Bajan Deli, operated by Roger Goddard who lived for many years in San Francisco. Painted bright yellow and right on the main road, Cutters is a blend of service and quality combined with a unique Bajan experience. Ask for their famous 'rum punch', not to be missed. They offer everything from Sandwiches and coffee to pizza and smoothies with an ever-changing menu. Open for breakfast and lunch daily, except Tuesday.

No visit to Barbados is complete without a trip to Lancaster Great House for their famous Sunday lunch.

Set in the heart of the Barbados countryside this 350 year old plantation home has been lovingly restored and filled with antiques by John & Rain Chandler, whose attention to every detail makes for a magical experience.

Each Sunday Lancaster House hosts its renowned planters buffet lunch with live piano music - but be sure to book early as the limited seating fills up quickly. 

This old-world setting is also perfect for weddings and parties.

The grounds of the house are ablaze with tropical flora while fountains and water features complete the charming atmosphere.
