“Great local Bajan food!”

Ryanne's Restaurant and Bar
Ranked #26 of 118 Restaurants in Bridgetown
Cuisines: Caribbean
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 February 2014

My wife, her brother, sister-inlaw and myself all chose Ryanne's restaurant to dine at as many locals around the downtown area of Bridgetown recommended it. We were extremely happy with this choice as the restaurant is located upstairs and the patio overlooks the hustle and bustle of downtown.
We opted for the buffet featuring local Bajan cuisine and we were not disappointed. The flying fish I really enjoyed as well as other traditional Bajun sides. We were impressed with the personable staff and owner of the restaurant as they made our stay every enjoyable. My wife and I will return next week!

I cant believe some people.

We went to Ryanne's on a recommendation from a local and whilst sitting down we noticed a family from "Europe" sit down then order a club sandwich and three burger and chips.

I was gobsmacked when the father said....I think ill try the flying fish and changed to a burger thanks to a chorus of "uuurgh that sounds disgusting' from his family......what the f........

They missed a truly culinary experience in West Indian food.

Yes the decor is a little rough and ready but who cares when food is this good.

I had the buffet selection of authentic home cooked West Indian food. The brown stew chicken cou cou jerk pork flying fish and macaroni pie etc were delicious.

If you are unadventurous in your culinary tastes like some of the contributors here stay away.

If you want truly scrumptious local food......ignore the slow service and decor and enjoy what was for me a memorable meal.

Unfortunately unlike the other reviews I was really disappointed this visit . We have eaten in this place before and enjoyed the meal but not on this occasion. My husband had the Bajan Buffett which was tasty if a bit too many flavours on one plate. I chose the house salad, what a disappointment . It consisted of half an iceberg lettuce, 4 slices of cucumber, overlooked bacon and a bit of chicken oh and some smelly cheese on top!!!!. We had to wait 45 mins for the meal, whilst waiting the local people we're served before us. I would neither return or recommend this place. Try Mustors down the road!!!

On my return to the island to establish my healing practice
I discovered that the proprietor and i had some things in
common, so we stumbled in for a meal and we were not at
all disappointed. When in Barbados and you're looking for
local quisine, this should definitely be your first choice and
only choice.
