Champers Restaurant

Reviewed By claudiast - Rockville, Maryland

We had a business lunch in this place and one of the best things of this restaurant is the marvelous location besides the beach. At noon, you are surrounded by the turquoise transparent water and craddled by the noise of the waves on the side.
The food is very good and reasonable by Barbados standards. It is a sophisticated version of bajan food plus international. Service was very good and they managed to give quick service to a large party

....but the punch and fish cakes are very overrated. Go for the rotis, a couple beers, and the scenery.

I went there last night and had the sword fish, with plantains, breadfruit and mac pie. Just delicious. The fish dinner is $30 bbd and you got enough for two meals. Just had my leftovers and simply tasting. Also, try the rum punch.
I will probably be back every Friday for the next 8 weeks!

Surfer's Cafe

Surfer&apos;s Cafe is an awesome restaurant with a very laid back atmosphere, cool vibes and rustic charm, located opposite Massy Supermarket on the western edge of Oistins. From our balcony, guests can enjoy unrestricted views of the beautiful Oistins Bay, the nearby fishing village is always a hive of activity and guests can watch the authentic, locally hand crafted fishing vessels coming and going. It’s also an ideal location to view breathtaking sunsets while enjoying an early dinner, or cocktails. Surfer’s Café, is a family styled, surfer themed restaurant, and with an established Surfing community on the island, we can’t go without pointing out our close proximity to two local surf spots "Freights Bay" and "South Point" to the south east.

I came here with 3 friends. We sat out over looking the sea which was beautiful.
The food was good and we were happy with the portion sizes. Cocktails were also nice however slightly over priced.
We tried to return here one evening but it was closed but I am not sure what time it closed that evening.
Overall it was a nice little stop for lunch and a drink.

Jan and Franks Cocktail Bar

Reviewed By Sue B - Liverpool, United Kingdom

Well what a weird experience! Came here with great expectations after doing my homework on bars and restaurants in the area to visit....asked for a cocktail menu only to be told “didn’t have one” as all cocktails in his head?? Well as being one of those people that only really drink cocktails while on holiday, not really any good to me as I like to choose what I’m in the mood for, played it safe and asked for sex on the beach! ( surely u can’t really go wrong with that) oh boy did he go wrong with that? After sipping on it I realised there was no peach schnapps in it, he then come out to check we were ok with the drink....said there’s no peach schnapps in it, to which he replied , didn’t have any?? Told him he should have told us he didn’t have any and I would have chose something else from that invisible list he has! Sorry but if your gonna offer cocktails then at least have the correct drinks to include!!!

Oistins

Reviewed By James M - Nottingham, United Kingdom

Like others have mentioned this is one of the best mixes of carribean nightlife, food, atmosphere and the whole Bajan experience. Food was decently priced, cheap and mid range options were avaliable, and the fish, lets be honest, is probably amongst the finest in the world.
Only possible negative might be the level of service can be on the slow side, as well as a lot of hawking for customers when you first arrive. That said its all friendly and respectful, and a lot of fun. Expect as well to be in close quarters with other people, who often we found could be the most interesting people you will ever meet.

Chillin & Grillin

Reviewed By Suza07 - Southampton, United Kingdom

Although we went on a Friday we had to wait a while for a table & food but it was definitely worth the wait.. everything was so fresh & tasty & there was plenty of it.
Normally go to George's or Pat's but think this could be my new favourite. We had children with us & they gave the them some macaroni pie while we waited for our meals which was kind.

So happy to find a 100% vegan restaurant! Right off a main road, easy to get to. Staff was welcoming. Food was very good. The had dessert, which is hard to find when you're vegan. Also coffee, tea, juice, smoothies and alcohol. After we finished, one of the staff escorted us to a taxi location. Great for vegans, vegetarians and everyone else ... you won't miss the meat!!!!

Uncle George

Reviewed By Kelli M

We returned to the fish fry in Oistins for a second Friday night. We went again to Uncle George’s and had our special waitress Melissa. We went early it was perfect timing. I had shrimp with all the sides, 7 large shrimp with coleslaw, potato salad, macaroni pie and rice and peas . I had a hard time finishing the rice I was so full! Delicious! My husband had the barracuda which he loved and our friends both had flying fish also top notch ! If you go to Oistins for fish fry go to Uncle George’s tell Melissa her Canadian friends sent you.
