We went for the friday night as we wanted to see what all the hype was about. We arrived around 6, parked up on the hill in behind the bus station parking area and then watched the sunset. Very nice with all the little fishing boats in the foreground. A few canons seen at the waters edge. Then we wandered into the eating area and were promptly snapped up by a waitress at 'ANNIES'. We weren't the first there, but there was plenty of seating and we were served our drinks and our meal came promptly. They had excellent rum punch and our food was amazing - King Fish, and my husband requested it to be spicy - which they seasoned such for him. And flying fish. All the sides were so yummy. Price was reasonable at $15 U.S. per plate. Around 7 p.m. tables were full and we left to wander around. We watched the locals enthusiastically play dominos. We looked at the vendors wares. Entertainment hadn't really started in full swing by 7;45, so we left. The main road was crazy busy, but the Bajan are always very polite in letting you squeeze in. We came back Sunday night, but Annie's was closed and PAT'S was the only one open - so we ate there and the food was amazing there too - same sort of prices. We parked in the designated parking inland, and on the way back, stopped at the roadside 'bakery' and bought some amazingly yummy turnovers which we had for our picnic lunch the next day. I would highly recommend eating at Oistens at least once. If a Friday, come early - but if you want to hang around for the entertainment, then maybe not too early?! It probably would be more fun if you were with another couple or other people, but once you've browsed the vendors, there isn't much to do while waiting for the entertainment to start. But if you aren't into the entertainment you can eat here other days of the week. The vendors are out on Saturday too. Some places advertise they are open for breakfast.
