There are plenty of adventures in Barbados that will get your appetite going. Embark on food tours, take part in festivals, or simply stroll along the streets that are bursting with culinary delights.

Bite into tradition

With so many tasty traditions to discover in Barbados, you won’t know where to start. Indulge in local delicacies, such as the famous national dish cou-cou and flying fish and experience the Oistins Fry Fish while discovering what a ‘bread and two’ is. Take in a casual lunch at Martin’s Bay or Fisherman’s Pub, or enjoy some fine dining at Primo Bar & Bistro or The Cliff.

Work up an appetite with a culinary tour in Barbados. Lickerish Tours weave in the history of the island with the traditions of local cuisine. Lick De Bowl Food Tours reveal hidden culinary treasures amidst scenic and historic sites, while Pigtail and Breadfruit Tours highlight the origins of Barbadian identity within food culture.

What do you get when you combine history and delicious food? Dinner with George! Travel back in time to the 18th century and have dinner with George Washington while experiencing the Barbadian food and culture of that era. Savour a five-course meal in a decadent setting lit by candles and lanterns, and marvel as George retells his life stories!

Available during the winter season.

Sugar, rum, and everything nice!

Home to sugar and rum, this island lets you immerse yourself in culture during the Barbados Sugar & Rum Season, from January 15 to April 15.
