price of restaurants

Planning on going to Barbados in February and was wondering what the price of restaurants and food are compared to Ireland and the uk. We hope to get an apartment and will be working on a budget thanks.

My usual rule of thumb is that supermarket prices in Barbados are, on average, about 10% higher than in the UK. If you go to www.supercentre.com you can look at the prices in one of the major chains there.

Eating out? Well, just as in the UK you can spend a small fortune or eat very cheaply and everything in between - there are plenty of options to suit all tastes and budgets. Sticking to local beer and rum will keep your drinks bill down!

We budget on about £100 or 120 (ish) Euros per day for 2 adults - that covers breakfast (we usually do our own with the odd one out), lunch and dinner (mostly mid range places) plus drinks, buses, taxis etc. We budget separately for car hire if we use it and for expensive excursions but it covers pretty much everything else.

As Almatt says it all depends where you eat. You can dine out at some very top end expensive Restaurants that will cost you upwards of £100 per head for Dinner or you can eat informally at a local restaurant or beach shack for £10 per head. I would say that Almatt's budget is pretty accurate, if you time your evening right you can hop from one Happy Hour to the next in the Bars which helps.

Have a look at http://www.barbados.org/orestamb.htm this should give you an idea of the variety on offer.

In most bars you can purchase a beer for anywhere between $3-$7 depending on the location. Some bars have four Banks Beers for $10.

Sodas / Juice = $3 to $5.50

Rum + Coke $8

Tea/Coffee $6 and up

Most cocktails $12-$20 depending on the location.

Glass of Wine = $12 to $24 depending on the location

Glass of Champagne = $30-$35

Bottle of wine = $60+

Bottle of Champagne = $120+

Food ---

Starters $18-$38 depending on restaurant

Mains $45 to $95 generally, depending upon restaurant and what you order. Lobster for example will be around $95. Items such as platters for two can run up to $140

Desserts $15 to $25 depending upon restaurant and what you order

Fast Food

$15 can get you two pieces of chicken, fries, biscuit and a drink from Chefette or KFC.

$12.99 can get you a value meal from KFC (sandwich and fries or chicken strips and fries or three wings and fries etc)

$33 can get you a whole regular pizza

Rotis range from $6.75 (Curried Potato) to $10.25 (All Chicken)

Casual Dining

Flying Fish Sandwich with Fries = $25

Burgers = $26-$32

Spare Ribs Platter = $39.95

1/4 Chicken Platter = $29.95

1/2 Chicken Platter = $34.95

14oz Ribeye Platter = $41.95


Loaf of Bread = $4.35

Block of Cheddar (250g) = $6.89

Dozen Eggs = $8.29

1 Litre of 2% Milk = $5.99

1 Litre of Juice = $5.29

Sliced Ham = $5.79

Bacon = $9.05

Bananas = About $0.70 each

Oranges = Jamaican about $0.75 each, Florida/California about $1.20 each

English / Granny Smith Apples = About $1.20 each

Strawberries = $19.99 a crate

All Prices BBD, divide by 2 for the US, divide by 3 for the £

I would recommend you budget approximately $350 BBD / $175 USD a day for the two of you so that's £58 / $88 USD per person roughly per day. This would cover breakfast, lunch and dinner and drinks. Some days you'll spend a bit more, others a bit less.

Hope this helps
