The Restaurant At Southsea Barbados
"The Best South Coast Restaurant in Barbados"

The Restaurant At Southsea Entrance

NOTE: This Barbados restaurant is no longer operational and has been replace by the Waterside Restaurant

I consider The Restaurant at Southsea Barbados to be the south coast’s nicest and tastiest restaurant and quite possibly the best restaurant in Barbados.

There is a beautiful seaside veranda you dine on overlooking a small secluded sandy bay. This creates a very romantic setting for couples.

There is also live music from the piano bar which adds a lovely touch to your meal.

The menu is very diverse so finding something you like should not be a problem.

This restaurant was opened in 2003 and has since been awarded the Barbados Restaurant Of The Year Award in 2004 and 2005 by the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA).

More recently, in the 2007 Zagat Survey Guide for Barbados, The Restaurant At Southsea Barbados ranked #1 for Best Service, #2 for Best Food Overall and #2 for Best Décor out of over 90 of Barbados’ finest restaurants. The Best Barbados Restaurant It is also the only restaurant in Barbados to have been given a Four Diamond rating by The Triple A Association.

These awards alone describe the outstanding quality of this Barbados restaurant.

This restaurant is located in the popular St.Lawrence Gap entertainment district along the south coast of the island.

I would therefore recommend setting aside a Thursday night to go to dinner here.

This will allow you to eat and then enjoy some of the Barbados nightlife ‘The Gap’ has to offer.

**You have to make reservations to dine at this restaurant but this can easily be done over the phone or by email.
