The Best Restaurants in Barbados for Digital Nomads

La Cabane: Beach chic, with Mediterranean-inspired dishes and farm-to-table ethos. Great wine list and excellent fish options. 

Champers: A South Coast gem, owned and run by a local, Black Female restaurateur. Overlooking the Caribbean Sea, you’ll catch stunning sunsets here.

Cocktail Kitchen: Creative plates using local ingredients, and as the name suggests, delicious cocktails. Ideal for sharing plates with a group. Be ​​sure to try the roasted breadfruit.

Ju Jus: Super casual beach bar, right on the beach with great burgers, fish, and excellent rum punch. Lunch only. Cash only. Wear a swimsuit!

Open Kitchen: Excellent pizzas, wine selection, and daily specials. Great for larger groups, with a lively atmosphere. 

Sea Shed: Buzzing oceanfront spot with a hip bar, and dishes for every diet. Breadfruit tacos are great to share. 

Local & Co.: Farm-to-table, oceanfront, and a great selection of cocktails. Lunch: book a table inside. Air-conditioned. For dinner, you can sit outside on the deck. Try one of the rum fusions.

Caboose: Super casual, yummy lunch spot. Enjoy a sustainable fish sandwich and a sip of homemade rum punch.

Chris’ Place: A local watering hole with friendly atmosphere, it's the best place on the West Coast to try local dishes such as macaroni pie, stewed lamb, and fried fish.

Lobster Alive: Super casual and literally on the beach, this restaurant has live jazz music on Sundays with a really fun atmosphere.

The Best Bars in Barbados for Digital Nomads

Bearded Rose: Excellent cocktails in a beautiful setting, located in Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, convenient for after-work sundowners or a late-night meet-up with friends before bar hopping through Holetown.

Mojos: Mojos is a South Coast stalwart, with live music and a lively atmosphere, perfect for a refreshing beer or a happy hour cocktail.

Buzo: This Italian-influenced restaurant is fully air-conditioned (not common on Barbados) with friendly staff and a well-stocked bar. They offer a variety of cocktails and often feature seasonal specials.

Castaways: There’s nothing quite like sipping a drink overlooking the Caribbean sea at sunset. Castaways is a woman-owned and run spot with stunning views, the perfect start to a night out in St.Lawrence Gap.

Local & Co.: Slip into the beautifully restored waterfront building for novel cocktails created by its own bartenders, plus beer, wine, and mocktails. The ever-popular spot makes standout cocktails using local ingredients with a creative twist. 

La Cabane: Occupying a beautiful spot in Batts Rock beach, La Cabane, comes by its beach chic ambiance honestly. They have some of the best rum punch on the island, plus cocktails, wine, and a full menu. 

QP Bistro: While many of the best ocean views in Barbados are free, they’re even better when they come with cocktails. QP Bistro has outstanding vistas of the Caribbean Sea from its sweeping terrace. 

Tiki Bar: One of the South Coast’s staple bars for over a decade, Tiki Bar has endured while other beloved restaurants and bars have come and gone. This casual spot on the beach is comfortable and quenches your thirst for beers, cocktails, and epic sunsets.

Chill Bar: This casual beachfront bar is just as enjoyable as some of its neighbors along the South Coast boardwalk. The first come, first sit spot is great for people watching as the sun goes down, or for a refreshing beer after a dip in the sea.

West Bar: West Bar is a bustling new spot in Limegrove Lifestyle Centre that offers wine, beer, cocktails, and a dinner menu. Said bar also has just enough spots to give the full-service restaurant equal drinking and eating crossover destination appeal. 

The Best Digital Nomad Cafes in Barbados

Sage Bistro: The space is beautifully styled, with various areas to work, have lunch, and sit and chat. 

Senses Marché: The cafe is well planned out so there are lots of little nooks that offer privacy, as well as a quiet area upstairs.

Citrine Cafe: You can park yourself with your laptop anywhere in the lush garden or on the easy, breezy patio. It's conveniently located in Bagatelle Great House, right in between Warrens and the West Coast. 

Splurge Cake Studio: This adorable cafe is an eclectic mix of shabby chic and industrial, with a variety of seating options. The space is noisy and bustling, similar to a Starbucks in any major city.
