What I'm sure was once a secret locale for visitors to get to experience a night out with the locals has become more of a tourist experience. The food is ok. The souvenir booths are pricey. Overall it's a fun place to check out on a Fri night.

Maybe it was because I went there too early (i.e. 5:30 pm) but we got very annoyed by the way someone from the staff of each stand almost attacked us to convince us to eat in each place. We could not walk ten meters without someone jumping on us. As a result, we gave up on having a walk and... More

you must take a bus down to Oistin's as the fish Friday is a good night out and good vibes flow during the night.

Very unique spot where locals and tourists come together and mingle and sample the tasty foods that Barbados vendors offer. The flying fish has been a staple for a long time, but there is so much more with chicken, other varieties of fish, lobster, shrimp, etc. All are done mostly fried, but if you look hard enough, you can find...

I love anything fish and this was no exception. The live music completed the Caribbean feel. You can expect great tasting seafood and music to get you in the dancing mood. Also look out for the local vendors showing off perfect souvenirs for those looking to purchase. This is the place to be on a friday night in Barbados!

Some amazing street antique and gift shops along the route of seafront stalls. Really friendly local people and flooded with tourists and people genuinly there for a fun... More
