A must experience on a Friday night. Huge block party with lots of fresh BBQ, live music and DJ's. I had a fresh whole snapper served with island favorites such as rice with peas and macaroni pie. The best meal I had on the whole trip

You simply can’t come to Barbados without coming to Oistins on a Friday night. The place is buzzing with both locals and tourists. Spoilt for choice for fish. Enjoyed the biggest lobster tail (in a plastic tray) and was entertaining people watching. Live music too.

First time to Friday fish fry. No need to do organised trip a lot cheaper on the ZR buses. The place is rammed, too many places to choose from, no where to sit and vary in prices. We had a few drinks (you could take your spirits and just buy mixers) but by the time we wanted to eat choices where very limited. Personally thought it was another tourist rip off with the food. Paid 40 Barbados dollars for 1 meal slopped in a polystyrene box, 7 prawns, soggy chips, fried potatoes and a garnish of soggy salad. My boyfriend ate it as he was hungry, I’m glad I never had anything. Recommend eating something before going.
There is a good atmosphere, watching the locals do their spin on line dancing! Most stalls do 3 banks for 10$. We left about 11ish as felt it was the locals time.
Next time I would probably go on a Saturday/Sunday when it’s quieter. Glad we went but wouldn’t rush back.

Everyone you come across around the south coast will say that you have to go to Oistins on Friday night, so we did. We had already eaten here a couple of times during the week and the food is amazing. However, the atmosphere on a Friday night is buzzing. The stage has some local dance acts, there is a market set up with locals selling their creations, a band and dancer walking through the eateries performing and a DJ fuelling a street party. We spent the night dancing in the street to soca and reggae with rum punches in hand! However, because it is so busy be prepared to wait a long time for your food. Although it shouldn’t be a problem finding somewhere to sit and eat, as there are so many places, the service will be slow. That being said the food is usually worth the wait.

We went here 2 fridays- 1st time we get a cab both ways, 2nd time we got the ZR bus both ways (so much cheaper & more fun).
Oistins is buzzing- food, drinks, vendors, dancing. Even our 6 year old loves it!
We ate at Chillin & Grillin & Debbies (the better of the 2) -drinks cheap and the dancers are amazing to watch.
Bring some $$ to tip the dancers & buy some local made gifts.

This is a must do for anyone visiting Barbados. The evening is filled with wonderful aromas, loud music, and happy smiling people, both locals and tourists.
We visited twice and had a great time, lots of choice on the menus, plenty of food and drinks outlets, all reasonably priced.
The entertainment is varied and there are people of all ages, a great opportunity to either sit back and take it all in or get involved and have some fun.

This (quite big) place was packed when we visited. I found it very interesting to see it so delightfully dense with locals, but only because it was one of those places so heavily promoted, I thought they'd mostly be tourists. It was a joy to see the locals who come regular to hang out, dance (some very smooth dancing gwan on there too!) and eat.
Eating from the wonderful choice of food cooked fresh there is a must but you wouldn't want to resist.Those wonderful aromas hit our noses as we were approaching the area and sped our feet. After all, if it's good enough for the islanders you know you're on to a good thing.

If you are visiting with friends or family I would advise that you stay close. It is very easy to lose people amongst the crowds and turns there.
If you do get lost just eat and rock to some nice music until you're found. That's what I'd do anyway ;)

Visited here on a recent trip to Barbados.

We arrived later than planned but found a table easily, the place we ate had nearly run out of a couple of dishes so for larger parties I would get there before 9pm.

We walked from the Sea Breeze Hotel where we were staying - a short walk which took us less than 10 mins.

We had five children in our group and there was police and an eclectic mix of people and plenty of locals !!!

Food was good and fresh - music and drinks were flowing and it was relatively good value. Prawn Kebabs at 40 Barbados Dollars and 30 for Dolphin (it is a fish not what you are thinking) !

You can go there any other night but it is quieter and lesser choice ! Worth a visit definitely !

Had a great evening with very tasty affordable food. The portion sizes were very generous and could have served at least two people. Very lively and entertaining with a brilliant atmosphere.

The only place I go to in Oistins is Pats place! Why? The ladies are cordial, accommodating and the food (Marlin,flying fish, fried chicken).. on point. Nuff food to really fill you up and it’s marinated how it should be.. sweet!! If you go Friday night, it is the most packed place on the strip. If you haven’t already tried their mauby, do so!! Clearly a winner!!
