The Best Oceanfront Restaurants in Barbados


This small island is home to a wide range of excellent seafront restaurants offering everything from delicious local seafood to imported delicacies. Whether you’re planning a romantic dinner for two or on the hunt for the best cocktails with a view, there’s a spot just for you on this list. These restaurants range from fine dining to more laid back ‘liming’, each offering something unique to suit various budgets and tastes on every coast! 


Side note: Unfortunately, Barbados currently imports most of its food so as a result, the cost of food and eating out is generally more expensive than what you would be used to in North America and is more in line with European prices.

Read on to learn more about what I consider to be the best oceanfront restaurants to eat in Barbados, listed in order of location (There's also a map at the bottom of this post!)

  5. Barbados has the most beautiful ocean views I have ever seen! I totally miss it. To be able to dine and see these views at the same time is so amazing. How fortunate you are to live in such a beautiful place :) All the Bajans we met while there were incredibly kind and made our stay so enjoyable.

  6. For patient and adventurous grillers, smoker grills are the perfect way to add punch to the food near me open now you prepare outdoors on your grill. Smoker grills are combination grills that allow you to not only grill your food, but smoke your food as well.
