A romantic meal in Barbados

Valentine’s Day is nearly here, so what better way to show your affection for your partner than a sumptuous meal in a romantic setting.

Barbados has so many amazing restaurants to choose from, but to help you narrow down your search, we’ve put together this list of five of the best places on the island for great food, service, and ambiance.

A meal at one of these restaurants will add some sparkle to your special occasion.


Champers on Barbados’ south coast has a deserved reputation for excellent food and unmatched customer service. 

Diners can look out onto the beautiful, calm ocean (you may even see a green turtle) while enjoying delicious mains such as ribeye steak, chickpea and lentil curry, chicken and mushroom linguini, and oven roasted barracuda. 

A dessert and cocktail menu are also available.

Fusion Rooftop

Situated on the top floor of the Limegrove Lifestyle complex in St James, Fusion Rooftop is an alfresco restaurant that provides floor to ceiling views of the west coast of Barbados and when the state-of-the-art retractable roof is pulled back, the night sky creates an unforgettable atmosphere of romance.

Fusion provides a high class, yet informal, dining setting with a philosophy of authentically sophisticated cuisine. 

The menu includes a wide range of delectable dishes for every palette such as mushroom baklava, grilled Piri Piri shrimp, and saffron Caribbean lobster.

Tapas Restaurant

Tapas Restaurant is ideally located right on the south coast boardwalk in Hastings, Christ Church.

Every seat in this two-level indoor/outdoor restaurant is the best seat in the house, offering a panoramic view of the spectacular Caribbean Sea.

The menu is resplendent with exquisite international cuisine and creative cocktails. Tapas’ consistently exceptional service, along with the tropical décor and the sound of the nearby waves, helps to create a truly memorable meal.

The Tides Restaurant

The Tides Restaurant on the west coast of Barbados draws inspiration from the sea on its doorstep for both its decor and cuisine. 

Housed in a rustic coral structure which is traditionally Caribbean, the restaurant is set on the water’s edge within a lush tropical garden and exudes an atmosphere of exquisite fine dining. 

Guests can choose from a wide range of menu options including vegan, a la carte, and prix fixe. Live music is also on offer every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday from local and international artists.

The Atlantis Historic Inn

The Atlantis Historic Inn is an elegant 1800s property located in the quaint fishing village of Tent Bay, St Joseph. 

This boutique hotel overlooks the spectacular Atlantic Ocean and diners at the on-site restaurant can enjoy their meal under a gazebo-type roof while taking in the awesome views of the wild ocean.

The menu features meals for every taste including crispy jerk calamari, Tent Bay fish and chips, and panko crusted seared tuna.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Yello!
