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 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!

Rose in hand and toes in the sand.

 

We have all been in anticipation about what is happening on Mullins Beach for several weeks now. At last, The Sea Shed has arrived and has opened its doors.

Barefoot chic with an element of rustic luxury, this new seaside venue will offer a European-Caribbean beach club vibe with fresh foods inspired by French and local traditions.

“Sea to Slate” is the philosophy of this new trendy spot which simply means bringing fresh fish from the sea to your plate. Catch of the day? Yes please.

 

 

Other dishes include fresh lobster and octopus, stone-oven pizza, lasagna and the all time favourite burger, just to name a few. Mouthwatering cocktails and fine wines can also be found here.

Well known, Chef Jeremy Dupire is at the helm of this place and with him he brings a wealth of knowledge, talent and whole-hearted dedication to ensure an unforgettable food experience for you.

Beach service opens from 10am and includes beach loungers and umbrellas. The restaurant opens from 12noon and takes reservations up to 8pm daily. Closed on Tuesdays.

It’s new. It’s sexy. And the food is to-die-for.  A must try!

Sunday is now our favourite day of the week! The Cliff Beach Club has made us fall in love all over again with a fresh and timeless way to relax and while the day away. Lunch at the Beach Club features a live band and quite frequently a fashion show hosted by the in-house boutique.

Consistent with The Cliff’s well-established standard you’ll pull up to valet parking and a warm Bajan welcome from the friendly hostess. We’d recommend arriving at least 30 minutes early so you can enjoy a drink from their cliff-top bar as you admire the 180-degree panoramic view as the bar’s backdrop. After you pick your jaw up off the floor from the sheer magnificence of the view, we’d recommend enjoying a few specialty cocktails crafted by expert bartenders.

Eclectic Ambiance

Best described as a mixed pot, few do it as seamlessly as The Cliff Beach Club. Its massive metal chandelier installed over the bar area is arguably the focal point of The Beach Club. Housing a combination of coastal, modern and African details, the restaurant is certainly unique. Spread out across three-tiered levels no matter your choice of seating you will experience uninterrupted views of the sea.

Vibes and more vibes

After a Sunday here, you’ll be walking with more pep in your step…or a wobble…depends! Lively and upbeat the Beach Club puts on quite the show. Boasting a mixed crowd of locals, repeat guests and newbies, the atmosphere is always friendly and your glass is never empty – their attentive staff sees to that!

Mouthwatering Cuisine

Much like its 5 Star sister restaurant, The Beach Club offers world-class culinary delights and decadent desserts. Their a la carte options ensure there’s something for everyone. Spicy lobster risotto and the octopus carpaccio give life to the menu while classics such as battered cod and chips provide soul comfort.

Bringing to life the perfect mix of fun and food, The Cliff Beach Club has developed a winning recipe. A ‘must visit’ while on the island, The Cliff Beach Club will never disappoint.
