Barbados "must do"
Nov 2021 • Couples
We visited on the first Friday after the easing of the curfew, and I think half of Barbados decided to do the same.

The atmosphere was great, despite there still being no live music. I think the vendors may have been a little overwhelmed with the amount of people, an a lot of stalls ran out of various dishes and we had to wait around 90 minutes for our food.

But, the beer was plentiful, the place was buzzing and when our food did arrive it was very tasty

Think this is a Barbados "must do".

Fantastic evening out
Nov 2021
I would recommend all visitors to the area to try this experience. The whole place was buzzing with locals and tourists for the traditional Friday night supper where every kind of fish imaginable is on offer, beautifully barbecued and served with a range of sides for an all-inclusive price. We ate at Uncle George’s but I’m sure everywhere was equally good.The best and tastiest fish I’ve ever eaten in a great party atmosphere. Brilliant!

DO NOT USE SHIRLEYS.
Nov 2021 • Friends
Went to Shirley’s shack.
Absolutely shocking.
Availability of food poor ( no, rice, chicken, salad and ran out of beer)
Quality very poor.
Complained as the chips were not cooked. Very greasy and soft.
I’m UK any decent restaurant would have given a huge discount.
No understanding from staff that they failed miserably.
About my 10 visit to the Fish Fry and this was SO BAD.
So, give it a go but NOT SHIRLEYS.

Easy way to sample local dishes
Oct 2021
The fish was beautiful and I felt it was cooked in a traditional way. Easy way to sample local dishes. lively, friendly and cheap! Nice to get away from the touristy hotels and restaurants further up on the West Coast.

Touristy but still worth a visit on a Friday night
Oct 2021 • Couples
Came on a Friday night during the Covid curfew times. It was quieter than I would imagine in normal circumstances but still had a great atmosphere and plenty going on. We tried two different food stands and both were delicious washed down with some rum punch. Touristy? Yes. Worth the visit? Yes.

Great fun night out. Amazing fish
Sep 2021 • Friends
This week I have been to Oistins to three different fish places and had flying fish, red snapper and swordfish, all amazing.
The highlight was the Friday fish fry. We waited in line fir an hour at Pats place and I had red snapper, half rice and Mac and coleslaw.
The portion was huge and tasty and beers 3 for $US5
This is a must visit on your trip to Barbados

Best fish ever!!
Sep 2021
We actually went on a Saturday night but would still highly recommend. It's easy to get heckled for drinks and food, but have a look around and pick the one with the biggest queues and most people eating there and you can't go wrong. Good atmosphere and the best lobster I've ever had. Also try the baracuda!

Don’t bother
Aug 2021 • Family
Purely a “tourist trap.” There is nothing cultural in experiencing Oistin’s fish fry. It’s hard work getting there through lines of traffic. Mostly it’s just tourists there. The food is really poor and just as expensive as the top end restaurants. Really don’t bother!

Highly recommend this
Aug 2021 • Family
This was really good. Don’t expect silver service but do expect great atmosphere and good friendly service. We drove there and parked across the road from the market and the only problem we had was deciding where to eat. Advise that you get there for around 6 as the tables fill quickly. There are also craft stalls that sold lovely gifts.

Local food at it's best
Jun 2021
How could we forget this evening. It wasn't as busy as previous years we had visited, but the food was still as good as ever. Grilled fish is the main dish of the area but you can most certainly get chicken & steak. We tend to go early as we have young ones with us but it's always on our list to do. Great cultural experience, great food and interesting characters.
