Seafood Restaurant
“Oistins Fish Fry Friday night at Oistins is an institution in Barbados. It starts at 6 pm and lasts till the early hours of the morning, with freshly cooked fish, local rum, and a DJ to get the party started. The entertainment is free, and a plate of food (usually fresh fish with chips (fries), salad and macaroni pie) costs around BBD $25. You can also stroll along the market stalls selling local art and craft, also for reasonable prices. ”

Bar
“Breathtaking cliff views of the north coast of the island, the iconic natural window views of the cave itself, and a rustic cliff lounge that is a writer's dream. If you take an actual tour of the cave, the natural 9ft deep pool (the famous one where Rihanna did one of her ad campaigns) will not disappoint. The cliffside restaurant also has fantastic food. Try their blackened barracuda or any catch of the day.”

Other Nightlife
“There are 2 cafes in Limegrove that I really love; Relish and Always Summer. Relish is great for any kind of breakfast food and Always summer specializes in coffees and wines. There are also a lot of lovely boutiques (including resort wear), duty-free jewelry stores, cinemas and live entertainment on the weekends. The Fusion restaurant on the rooftop is wonderful at sunset.”

“Another one of my favourite eating places, especially to link n lime with friends. It's a bar and grill and the food is great!!!! Two of my favourite dishes, is the Pork Loin, wrapped in bacon, with mash potatoes, local vegetables and an onion gravy!! The other is the Lamb Burger!! although I say all the burgers are homemade and delicious. Great Cocktails too and they have drinks specials on different nights. Eat in or outside. The atmosphere, vibes and music is great! Situated in Worthing...only about 20mins drive away.”

“Open daily from 7:30 AM - 10 PM; live music Thursdays through Sundays and the coziest nook to eat that you can get on the south coast. Also, a great place if you are a working nomad, as long as you order from the menu you can sit down, use the internet, check emails, work for a few hours unbothered.”

“Fabulous all white bar. Serves the most wicked rum punch. Very tasteful place. They often have live music but check first which nights. In the day they serve coffee and rent out beach chairs etc but it is best for sundowners. Very Made in Chelsea.”

Grocery Store
“Where most Bajans do their grocery shopping in the area - then again most of the supermarkets are owned by Massy Stores. Keep in mind you can buy alcohol at the supermarket; there's no separate alcohol store as is the case in some countries (eg Canada).”
