Amidst the tumultuous year that was 2020, PRIMO BAR & BISTRO reopened on July 1st, 2020 under new ownership with a fresh vibe and a dedicated team. Set in an iconic location on the ocean’s edge in the calm bay of St. Lawrence Gap, this location has been featured in more magazines and tourist travel logs than anyone can count. The combination of serene sea views, delicious and affordable menu, and friendly staff make this new restaurant ideal for casual dining or tapas & cocktails.

Well-known local entrepreneurs and partners in the business, Mark Maloney and Zary Evelyn, have invested heavily in the restaurant and welcomed back Head Chef Jason Gittens as well as a number of the previous staff to ensure a friendly, welcoming environment.

The picturesque location offers a little something for everyone, from the lounge overlooking the boardwalk and all the action in The Gap, to the ground and top floor oceanfront dining balconies and an air-conditioned dining room. The eclectic menu has a subtle West Indian influence and includes an extensive variety of fresh seafood, meat and pasta dishes that accentuate freshness and flavor and there are a wide range of vegan and gluten-free options as well. Primo’s boardwalk lounge features the most delectable thin-crust pizzas, perfect while enjoying a cocktail by the sea. The menu has been priced to encourage locals and visitors alike to enjoy this stunning location at affordable prices with starters from Bds$18, mains from Bds$40 and pizzas from Bds$35 to $49 each, and there is also a kids menu. Parking is located across the street and the $5 parking charge is redeemable in the restaurant.

If you pair a stay at a Blue Sky Luxury villa, choose Sapphire Beach, Ocean One 502 or Terraces 101 with a visit to Primo Bar and Restaurant, you’ll be walking distance away from the restaurant and all the offerings of The Gap. If you’re on the island our Concierge Can team can arrange dinner reservations. If you’re planning on visiting…maybe for Summer 2021, make sure Primo is on your Barbados Restaurant Bucket list. Enjoy!

We explored the culinary delights of Barbados’ Top 5 South Coast Restaurants. Now it’s time for the West Coast. Also known as the platinum coast, the West Coast offers plenty of fine dining (beachfront of course), upscale barefoot beachfront eateries and if you’re actually staying at a Blue Sky Luxury villa, scrumptious chef prepared meals. Hey, you can treat your Barbados holiday rental as an intimate restaurant. The food is that exquisite. Here you go Barbados’ Top 5 West Coast Restaurants. With protocols constantly changing, it’s better to check with the restaurant when booking. Bon appétit!

 

Barbados’ Top 5 South Coast Restaurants

  1. Sea Shed
  2. The Lone Star Restaurant
  3. The Tides
  4. The Fish Pot
  5. The Seashed
  6. The Mews

 

Sea Shed 

Laissez-fair beach vibe

Think …Nikki Beach meets rustic chic but way sexier! With more rosé than you can drink (I highly doubt that I have faith in you), excellent service, and great vibes on the weekend, Sea Shed at Mullins Beach delivers on their “laissez-faire beach vibe.” Again, Chef Jeremy titillates us with a unique fusion of sea-to-slate offerings. If you are a pizza lover, our Group Knowledge Manager Tarik recommends the “Cabra” a mouthwatering combination of cream sauce, mozzarella, goat cheese, honey, and olives.

 

The Lone Star Restaurant 

Idyllic setting, celebrity clientele

Not to be outdone by the south coast restaurants, this gem on the platinum coast shines brightly with its cool, contemporary digs on the beachfront. Renowned for its celebrity clientele, their new and exciting menu offers – a fusion of Italian fare and to quote “much loved timeless Lone Star classics.” Choose from the Moules MariniereChicken Tikka MasalaPrawn Thai Green Curry, or Shredded Aromatic Duck. you’re in for a treat!

 

The Tides

 Top fine dining restaurant

If you have not been here before, The Tides calls a classic seaside Barbadian residence built after the 2nd World War it’s a historic home. Located in Holetown, St. James. I have personally enjoyed at least two decadent meals at The Tides. Fish is always a favorite of mine and The Pan Fried Flying Fish at The Tides does not disappoint. The service as well is worth mentioning, absolutely impressive!

 

 

The Fish Pot 

Quaint waterside eatery

A breath of freshness has been infused into The Fish Pot nestled in a little bay in Shermans, St. Peter. French-born chef Jeremy Dupire of international fame and a local culinary master behind top restaurants such as The Cliff and the newly opened Sea Shed has brought us even more culinary joy. The Fish Pot is a must-visit and the seafood antipasti platter, marinated flying fish panini and grilled Caribbean lobster are highly recommended.

 

The Mews

Farm to table experience

I’ve often had the pleasure to be invited to try the farm to table offerings from The Mews along with our concierge team. Set in the ever-lively 2nd street in Holetown, Chef Anife brings local fare to life! With various gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan offerings, there’s something for everyone. By that I mean yes, there is meat, meat lovers. Everyone should try the Blackened catch of the day with fresh parsley new potatoes, roasted butternut squash, basil oil, fennel seeds, and tzatziki.

We love the South Coast vibe. It’s laid back, plenty of drinking, dining and drinking options. No that was not a typo. If you’re a foodie at heart, this list is for you. Without further ado… drumroll… Here are the Top 5 Barbados Restaurants on the South Coast of Barbados, and yes, they are all open with full COVID 19 protocols in place. With protocols constantly changing, it’s better to check with the restaurant when booking. Bon appétit!

Barbados’ Top 5 South Coast Restaurants

  1. Buzo Osteria Italiana
  2. Salt Café
  3. Blakey’s on the Boardwalk
  4. Café Sol
  5. Champers

 

Buzo Osteria Italiana

Food, love, passion

You must check out this amazing Italian Restaurant on Hastings Main Road. A friend once recommended that I try the “Bistecca Ai Ferri” I did, and I’ve never been the same. It was excellent! but sadly, my Italian, not as good. Just ask for the Ribeye steak, red wine and red onion compote…it’s lit! no literally, they light it.

 

Salt Café

Hand-crafted comfort food

Ok, we all love poke (or do we?) Let’s ignore the naysayers for now. Salt is more than just poke. From truffle friesbaos and “banging salads” to crispy pig ears, the international flair of this cosy little restaurant on Hastings Main road will leave your taste buds clamoring for more. I highly recommend the poke… or did I say that already?

 

Blakey’s on the boardwalk

Good food, good lime, good music

Did someone say live entertainment, local delicacies, and drink specials? Honestly, I may just pop on over myself! Enjoy the cooling breeze at Blakey’s while local acts Jae Johansen, JJ & Chadd and many more serenade you. Have lunch, then take a stroll on the boardwalk after to walk off their delicious local pudding & souse and superlative drink mixes.

 

Café Sol

Authentic Mexican restaurant

Mentioned in our handy “Barbados Guide and Must-Try List” Café Sol is a Mexican restaurant at the entrance of the ever-famous St. Lawrence Gap. Taste the flavour of warm taquitoscheesy quesadillas, and a delightful array of mouthwatering margaritas. We would be amiss if we didn’t tell you to take a stroll through The Gap to check out the nightlife and to get a nightcap. (yes, that was intentional)

 

Champers

Leading South Coast restaurant

We head down the South Coast to Champers for a delightful seaside dining experience. Located in Rockley, Christ Church, Champers is undoubtedly one of the leading restaurants on the South Coast. What makes it unique is the vibrant art gallery where you can acquire a local piece after you try the highly recommended Herb Crusted Rack of lamb from our Concierge Manager Shernelle. That’s her favourite anniversary dish!

Look out for our Top 5 West Coast Restaurants coming soon!
