Beautiful view of the ocean, cool & soft blowing wind in a shaded sitting area. The perfect spot to enjoy an ice cold rum punch. Carole & Alain from Montreal.

We charged the meal to our room as we were staying at the Divi and tipped in cash. Sorry we didn't notice if the restaurant took credit cards.

Located beachfront under a Guyanese greenheart wood pavilion without walls, pureocean restaurant in Barbados is the epitome of Caribbean al fresco dining. Executive Chef Henderson Butcher is a forward thinking chef who takes his farm-to-table, dock-to-dish restaurant concept seriously - growing the majority of fresh herbs used in the restaurant on property. His menus feature creative twists on local Bajan foods, like the Pure Pork & Bake with aromatic smoked pork and sweet potatoes topped with ginger onion jam, and the Flying Fish Pop, a herb crusted flying fish and plantain lollipop with tomato and orange sauce.
