We have visited the Barbados for the past three years in January and it's a wonderful winter get-away. We chose a good time to get away this year- it was 12 degrees in NYC when we left!
It's always sunny and 86 degrees in Barbados, with a nice breeze blowing; the weather is truly perfect. The food is very good, and there are several terrific restaurants that we like to visit. We had dinner at The Tides and Champers as usual, but we added a few new places.

Of course, we wouldn't miss the Friday night Fish Fry at Oistins. We ate at Uncle George's again, but this year the line was not a hour's wait. We love Uncle George's, it reminds us a little of Doug's Fish Fry in Skaneateles. You wait in a long line, and then you sit at long picnic tables to eat.
We met a lovely couple from Britain at our table and enjoyed their company, along with our grilled shrimp, mahi mahi, and macaroni pie (what we call macaroni salad). They served the shrimp on a bed of pasta that was absolutely delicious, and you can't beat the price- less than $20 for the whole meal, and the food is so fresh.

We had lunch at L'Azure, a restaurant at the Crane Resort, and in addition to a fabulous meal- we all ordered the Oistins Burger, a mahi mahi burger with fries- we had the most gorgeous view of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Seriously.

Our last dinner was at Champers, which was fabulous as always. We sit right out over the water, with the waves crashing underneath us. The food is amazing; the highlights were Crispy Vegetable Spring Rolls, Shrimp & Mango Salad, Grilled Sea Scallops and Parmesan Crusted Barracuda. Between the food, the ambiance and the service, you can't beat it.

If you are a big fish eater, Barbados is the place for you. It's such a lovely place to visit, I'd like to spend more than a few days there next time.
