Unfortunately fish fry trip was marred by rainy weather. When this happens there is very limited space to shelter. Horrific traffic getting there. Not really impressed with what was a night away from the hotel. Small trinket stalls selling local poor crafts.

Oistins Friday Fish Fry is like something most people will not have experienced! Oistins used to be a small Fishing Village on the South Coast past Rockley Beach, St. Lawrence Gap and Hastings. What you now have is a large Beachside Area with a whole multitude of small huts dispersed amongst a lot of Picnic Bench type Tables in seating... More

So fun! Don't go if you are uptight in crowds or are looking for fine dining. This is a come-as-you-are, let your hair down, and enjoy rum punch kind of evening. We really enjoyed talking to the locals. Food was great, good vibes all around.

A group of nine of us organised a local taxi to pick us up and bring us back to our hotel rather than us all making separate arrangements. The food was good and although it got busy later on there was always a pleasant atmosphere.

Amazing food $15 bsd got me a tray off flying fish, macaroni pie and salad, eaten at the stall listening to good music. Defiantly worth a visit, get there early as it gets busy quickly. Opening 6:30pm - 1am.

We were recommended Oistins on a Friday by friends who visit Barbados regularly. Its a great evening out, lots of places serving the best barbequed fish in polystyrene trays. As basic as you can get but the fish tastes fabulous everyone is seated together so you can't help but make friends with everyone around you. As well as the fish... More

Very local, very lively. The freshest fish is cooked and served in many little restaurants with a real party atmosphere. Two recommendations Pats Place and Chillin and Grillin.

By far some of the best food on the island. The atmosphere is totally casual and the music and vendors make for a fun evening. We got the best bang for our buck at Oistin's. The food was so delicious that we went back on a weeknight just to try out more of the food. This is a must do... More
