Barbados Report - Long'ish

Moz | Aug 18, 2006 05:59 PM

Just got back from 10 days in Barbados and had some good, and some awful meals. Here are a few:

Cocomos - Great lunch place with fabulaous rotis and an amazing blackended flying fish wrap

The Cliff - What a great spot, unlike the rest of the island where service was at best spotty, this place rocks! (please excuse the pun). had the terrine to start (excellent) as well as the crab salad (OK). Main courses were braised lamb with mustard mash and the thai seafood curry. Accompanied with a fine bottle of Gaja overlooking the sea this was a great evening, but not a cheap one!

Daphnes - Service was really quite awful but the location was great and the food was good. I requested a specific table in advance and they said they would hold it for me. A couple came in just before us and were seated at the same table I requested even though the restaurant was empty. Not a good start as they were completely unapologetic. Daphnes calls themselves an authentic Italian restaurant but it was quite an ecclectic menu. Had the sea bass baked in salt (amazing) and the fishermands linguini.

Lone Star - Great location and amazing service but the menu and food was not so good. Trying to be very Ivy (London) with an eclectic menu that featured everthing from shepards pie to Thai cury. Had to send my pasta back as it was way to salty (and I love salt) and the crispy duck in pancakes was dry and tasteless.

Roti Hut - Home made rotis that just taste amazing

Sitar - Fabulous curry restaurant in a little alleyway/mews on the west side. The naans are huge an dthe butter checken to die for.

Fish Fry - every weekend in Oistins. A food experience you will never forget.

Cheffette - Dont, please dont......
