Nikki Beach Barbados

Dining

Delicious. Sumptuous. Savory. Or just simply, “delightful’. Whatever words you use to describe great food, you’ll need lots of them as you taste your way through Barbados.

 

Let your Concierge assist since they know the local cusine.Barbados has fare to fit every budget, palate and ocassion. 

 

Private Chef: Is Elysium your luxury retreat? Not interested in leaving home? A personal chef will prepare exotic creations just for you and yours - let your Luxury Concierge take the lead.

 

What to Wear: The dress code for dinner in Barbados is conservative, casually elegant, and, occasionally, formal—a jacket and tie for gentlemen and a cocktail dress for ladies in the fanciest restaurants particularly during the winter holiday season. Jeans, shorts, and T-shirts (either sleeveless or with slogans) are always frowned upon at dinner. Beach attire is appropriate only at the beach.

 

Not to be missed:

Fishcakes, Macaroni pie,

Our National dish of Cou-cou and flying fish
