Smart/Up Market Restaurants In Or Taxi Ride From The Gap

We are staying on the south coast for a change. Ordinarily we would go to places like Bajan Blue, Coral Reef Club or Olives in Holetown.

Can anyone tell us which of the restaurants in or around the south coast are smart/chic and a bit special?

Champers is very nice, it is a very short taxi ride north from the Gap, just after Coral Mist hotel

Wispers in Bridgetown

Black Pearl just after Accra beach hotel, I've never been but looks nice

I would also say Sunday Brunch at the Crane is a nice experience they have a gospel choir on.

I'm sure you'll get lots more suggestions, Emma

Don't know when you are going but the Gourmet card may be useful if before mid December

It also lists some more restaurants which you could take a look at.

I've enjoyed dining at Pisces and Josefs. They are both fine dining establishments on the water in The Gap. Both experiences were over a year ago, I must admit. Josef's was a better experience than Pisces. I don't think that they are on par with Bajan Blue.

Enjoy exploring the south coast!

Definitely try out Cafe Luna at Little arches Hotel - just 5 mins drive from the Gap...I also recommend Champers, Tapas in Hastings, and if you fancy a 15 minute drive from teh Gap and fancy Thai/Japanese definitely Zen at the Crane.

Best restaurant on the Island is The Restaurant at Southsea in the Gap but you need to take out a second mortgage to eat there. Otherwise, Bellinis is in a lovely spot on the waterfront in the gap and does good Italian fare - beware large portions. Also, Harlequin in the Gap does excellent food at a reasonable price. Pisces and Josefs are also high end. Bon apetit!

Restaurant at Southseas closed a few months ago due to the death of the owner.

Sorry to hear about Southsea. I planned to eat there after reading such wonderful things on this forum.

Hi all - just returned from Barbados and thought I would let you know how I got on!

Ate at Black Pearl first - ate a nice meal - it is definately really a steak and chophouse (as it publicises itself!) but is has greek food - which is really different and a welcome change. I had wonderful calimari with tatziki!

We went to Champers and had an OUTSTANDING meal - really beautiful setting and wonderful food and service. In my opinoin a serious competitor to The Cliff! Had a bisque to start followed by rib of beef, finished off with tiramisu.

Thanks for all your inputs!
