Best Restaurants in St James area

We are staying in Barbados soon at the Coral Reef Club and want to know what are the best restaurants in the area - we know the Cliff, which is fab, but as we haven't been to Barbados for 3 years we wonder if there is anywhere else just as good!

Thanks you!!

We are just back from the Coral Reef Club and the food is amazing. In the mornings we had our breakfast served to us on our patio. The staff not only deliver but set up your patio table with full tableware - fantastic service at no extra charge. You have a fridge located in a buffet on your patio and also a toaster, so that you can toast the bread yourself and it is lovely and fresh. WE usually kept the fruit platters we ordered to have at lunch.

In the evening it was lovely sitting listening to wonderful entertainment and looking out at the ocean splashing up behing the bandstand.

For the first few days we were on a room only basis so we ate at both Olives and also the Mews which were fantastic. We changed onto the Meal Plan for the last week of our stay and found out that Coral Reef have exchange dining with both these restaurants. The helpful reception staff at Coral Reef give you a card to present on arrival at the restaurant and everything is taken care off.

All this for only US$75 ppn considering that the full breakfast alone is approx US$25 ppn alone it is terrific value for money.

We also had a lovely meal at Calablaza with a table overlooking the waters edge.

Calabaza is a very nice one, we were there on Monday night. The food service and seaside location makes it a one of the best we've visited. We plan to go again.

We've been to the Cliff, Calabaza and the Restaurant at Southsea. I still think the Cliff is the best, but it is also the most expensive. The restaurant at Southsea comes in close second, only because I don't think the setting is quite as good as the Cliff. The food and service at Southsea are fantastic. Also if you're staying on the south coast it is a lot more accessible than trawling over to the West Coast!

Hi there my partner and I have just returned from our 12th visit, so yes we love Barbados we have always in the pasted stayed around the Holetown area but find the night life very quiet so this time we headed for Maxwell staying in a self catering accommodation. We found it great but basic where we stayed but the night life in neihbouring St Lawrence Gap was excellent this is full of resturants and bars all ranging in diffrent prices not to expensive, although there is Pieces Resturant on the edge of the water absolutly excellent.

Also Mullins in the evening is lovely right on the beach you can spend a lovely romantic evening there great setting, excellent food and nice people.

I really dont think you can go for wrong eating out in Barbados give St Lawrence a try you will not be disappointed try Pieces it is really nice ....

Angry Annies is excellent in Holetown very diffrent syurroundings but the ribs are excellent looks like a little chattle house dont be alarmed give it a go
