Although it might not look like much, this little shack boasts some of the best fish sandwiches you’ll ever get on any beach anywhere. They are so good that tour drivers will take visitors to the beach just for this little blue shack right beside the Hilton Resort. Locals will drive from all over Barbados to grab a bite before it shuts for the day, which is at 17:00 or when they run out of fresh fish. The dish to try is the fish sandwich, called a Cutter, which even comes with a beer. Don’t judge a book by its cover, this is a classic which you’ll always return to on every visit.
If you’re in the mood for some of the best Flying Fish in Barbados, then you have to go find Mustor’s.

In fact, Mustor’s is mostly packed with locals and that’s how you know its good. Here you’re guaranteed to get some of the freshest fish on the island in versions of national dishes. If you’re looking for traditional Bajan flavors, then Mustor’s is the place to go while you meet the city’s residents.

The Boatyard is another great choice for somewhere to stop if you’re looking for a relaxing day on a beach. You can choose to get your own umbrella and chair on the beach, with a free drink, all while being served by some of the friendliest staff on the island. You pay $40 BBP per person at the door, but then you use that money inside however you want, from food to drinks to the lounger rentals. Think of it like a deposit. It’s an entire-day kind of place, where you can catch some sun, some drinks, and some great fresh food. At night, torches are lit up on the beach. You must try the coconut shrimp.
