Hi, I'm going to Barbados for the holiday season and i'm looking for restaurant recommendations. I have a 5 year old child so the very tony restaurants aren't really what I'm looking for, just some really good grub without a hefty price tag. Anyone know of any?

    Groots, a chattel style restaurant on the West Coast has good food at reasonable prices. Waterfront Cafe in Bridgetown, Cafe Luna on the Soathcost (great sushi on Thursday/Friday) and I second twohey on Oisten's.

      Josefs at St. Lawrence gap is excellent. Bang on the sea. Expensive but good for dinner. Brown Sugar is excellent recommendation for lunch - they have locsal buffet - flying fish is a must plus all Caribbean buffets are heavy on rice and potato - make sure to have the local hot sauce as well. another good night spot is Champers - also on south coast. Calabaza is also good for dinner along the West Coast. Friday night at Oistens is local, cheap, fish fry up with rum and party atmosphere - wear shorts.

        While others will know more, the buffet at Brown Sugar at lunch would probably be fun for a kid--especially on Sunday, when they have steel pan music. It's B$60 per person, so not super cheap, but not super pricey given restaurant prices in general here.
