We were lucky to experience Friday night at Oistin's -- and without a doubt it became one of our most memorable experiences (so much so, that as we planned our return visit to Barbados this year, we scheduled our trip so that we'd be there for two Fridays so that we could take in the atmosphere again). The different choices... More

I go to the fish fry every time I'm in Barbados which is at least once a year. You will have your pick not only of freshly barbecued local fish such as dolphin, king, tuna, etc but also chicken, pork and vegetarian options from numerous vendors. You'll get huge portions of dinner along with copious offerings of rum punch and... More

A must-do on a Friday night. Arrive by 6pm to watch the beautiful sunset and bag a table at Uncle Georges. Awesome food and fantastic atmosphere.

Talked to a few locals before we ventured to Oistins Friday night bash. Recommended places were , Crystal's, Chillin and Grillin and Pat's. We chose Chillin and Grillin after sampling the fare. Omg the Mahi Mahi (aka Dolphin fish, not Flipper) was my favorite. My husband chose Marlin, equally as good! We should have shared though, it was a shame... More

You are on Barbados on a Friday! We ate at Pat's Place, but Mo's next door looked as good and also got great reviews from the locals we spoke to. While Pat's is not for the impatient, the food was well worth waiting for, and the wait made entertaining by the position of Pats near one of the main stages.... More

Walked into Oistins on a Friday night after hearing abour how great the fish fry is. It certainly lived up to its reputation. Loads of little eating places right on the waterfront selling barbequed fresh fish straight from the fish market next door. We had marlin and shrimps as big as king prawns which were fabulous. Brilliant atmosphere with local... More

We had a fantastic time at the Friday night fish fry. We ate at uncle George's and it was lovely, big cues but worth it, great market on and tunes pumping out of sound systems really give it an atmosphere. would definitely go back again
