angler apartments

Hello,

anyone got suggestions of where to eat near here? I have seen the latest review posted this week and the accommodation sounds friendly but 'care worn' - anyone got any more info?

thank you

There are some excellent restaurants nearby, depending on what you want to spend, on the high side, The Cliff, The Tides, Calabaza, Lone Star,medium price, Cocomos, Olives and The Mews,you will be spoiled for choice. I believe the lady owner is a superb cook so you might take advantage of that.

We stayed at Angler last week. It was our second trip to Barbados. Accomodations are good for those who will be out and about while on island, and just need a place to sleep. The studio we stayed in was fine, but if you plan on spending any amount of time in your room, go for the larger unit. Chandra is a wonderful host. We did not eat at angler, though we've heard the food is very good. Chandra is vegan, and specializes in vegetarian and seafood fare.

The previous post mentioned some nice restaurants, so let me give you some low cost options. About 300 yards down the beach (to the left if facing the sea) is O'Cristal's Beach Bar. They have lots of local favorites at very good prices. True Bajan. Also a perfect spot to hang out, enjoy a drink and watch the sunset. Play dominoes, cards. Please tell them Pete said hello. Just up the hill from O'Cristal's is Wendy's snack bar. Follow the signs up Risk Rd from O'Cristal's. its about a 15 minute walk from Angler. Also a local place, you can get some groceries, meet some locals and enjoy wonderful food. Highly recommend the macaroni pie. Be sure to get the turnovers on Sunday morning. Yum! You can walk down the beach to O'Cristal's if its low tide, but bring your water shoes b/c its rocky. At high tide or if the sea is rough, you'll have to walk on the road.

If you have a car, you can drive up to Holetown where there are many restaurants. Surfside and the Roti den are both very good, and low cost. Enjoy the local flavor!

Be glad to answer more questions!

Hi Peter,

thank you for great tips on local eateries. we have been to the island once before, staying on south coast, and loved taking the local buses and finding the more down-to-earth places (we don't have the budget for Tides etc!). Did you do any catamaran trips / the sub / glass bottomed boat? My husband is not a confident swimmer but we'd love to see the fish and turtles.

thanks also to others who took the time to reply.

Hi again.

No, we've never done any of those excursions. we bring our own gear and snorkle from the beach. you can go up to Payne's bay to see the turtles. you'll want to go when the catamarans come in to feed them. water should be shallow enough to walk out. otherwise, hit a dive shop at one of the hotels and ask to rent a vest with your snorkel gear. the vest keeps you afloat.

have fun!
