The Cliff and Cliff Beach Club Set atop a dramatic cliff overlooking the sea below, The Cliff Restaurant is the number one restaurant destination for that very special dinner or celebration. Voted one of the top 50 restaurants in the World, its newer sister restaurant next door, the more casual Cliff Beach Club is set to achieve similar accolades with its quirky, cool style and equally breath taking sea view. Fish Pot At the northern end of the west coast it is “worth the drive” to enjoy the fresh, delicious seafood served up at the Fish Pot. Set within a charming 18th century fort directly on the water’s edge, the service and the surfside view also comes highly recommended! Lone Star Lone Star in St. James is a “fantastic seaside” place with a buzzy yet laid backatmosphereandwherecelebrities are never far away! The Tides Newly renovated and boasting a chic new design, The Tides now features a stunning air-conditioned glass room overlooking the sea, a luxurious lounge and bar, or you can choose to eat their famed cuisine in the open-air setting. Ju Ju’s Beach Bar Located just north of the Fairmont Royal Pavilion and south of the Lone Star Restaurant, Ju Ju’s is directly off the main road, on the beach. There is no sign. Look forthe limegreenhouseandthesignthat says “Dive Barbados” and follow the pathway to the left of the green house down to the beach. Simple, delicious and seriously popular! 18 An Island for All Tastes Lobster tales and other foodie fantasies from the Bajan pantry A tall tail at the Fish Pot Twilight at The Cliff T he “culinary capital of the Caribbean,” Barbados is especially appealing to a growing band of gastronomes, who have learned that great restaurants alone, whether beach shacks or more sophisticated dining is sufficient reason to keep on visiting Barbados! From fine dining in a spectacular beachfront restaurant to the sizzling delights of a streetside fish fry at Oistins, the island will never cease to surprise. Bajan street food comes highly recommended. When internationally renowned American chef, Marcus Samuelsson describes a lowly fish sandwich from Cuz, (a tiny fish shack on the south coast), as “King of all fish burgers,” its praise indeed! Barbados has a vibrant food scene with many restaurants having contemporary menus based on local produce and freshly caught local fish with an emphasis on fresh and quality ingredients. There have been other ethnic influences resulting in some of the best sushi at Nishi in historic Holetown and excellent curries drawing from the West Indian heritage with other influences from all over the world utilising a roll call of enticing ingredients. With the introduction of the Barbados Food and Rum Festival held in November, involving the best local chefs and also featuring Michelin star awarded Chefs Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Tom Aiken, Barbados is fast becoming known for its appeal to the most seasoned foodies, who continue to flock here to feast on fine food and beverages in exquisite, internationally acclaimed restaurants.
