There is no cuisine in the world like Caribbean food. When settlers from around the globe flocked to the region hundreds of years ago, they all brought their own unique flavors. As Caribbean cuisine developed, it fused these elements together into a distinctive taste all its own. There is no better place in Barbados to experience high-end Caribbean food than Taboras Restaurant. And with the open kitchen and stunning view of the water, the experience shall not disappoint!
Palm Terrace Restaurant also has a Caribbean flair, albeit a more casual atmosphere for breakfast. Built along the beach, the eatery has an extensive view of the sea. Combined with the lush gardens, it is a stunning place to eat. And in the evening, the restaurant alters the casual ambience and turns into a semi-formal dinner spot. The perfect spot for a date night!
Don’t forget to experience a bit of tradition while you’re staying at this luxury hotel on your beach vacation. Inspired by the island’s British connection, the afternoon tea service is not to be missed. And if you’re just in need of a bite while lounging on the beach, look no further than Beach Club.
Indulgent Spa Services
