A bit of basic research will reveal to potential customers that Chris' Bar is famous for its ribs. Go there to eat keeping that in mind and if its what you want, you will have a great time. We went there two Fridays on the run and it was superb both times. Chris is a great host (and salesman) with... More

This made a really pleasant change from the premium restaurants we had been visiting. Very easy to find, and with its own supermarket attached full of local stuff. Menu is a bit limited but very local and freshly prepared as you might expect. Resident DJ spices the atmosphere up on a Friday when we visited - garb a beer ,... More

You come to Chris' Place because it's full of locals, all of whom are friendly and welcome visitors. Food is local, so don't expect fine dining but the local food is fine! Today, great cou-cou with blackened flying fish, also marinated chicken and cou-cou. Also excellent chilled draught Banks. I've been coming here since 2009 to enjoy local people food... More

Second time we have been for ribs here. The first time we did take out and the next we decided at the last minute to stay and eat there. The food was excellent both times with the meat falling off the bone and the hand cut fries are equally divine! Give it a try.

I discovered this rum shack back in 2007 and have been coming back ever since. It is located on the west coast, not on the beach like the John Moores Bar which you past if going North on Highway 1B. You need to look for a road called Gibbes Road on the right, which has signs for Rock Dundo. If... More

Chris's Place, is an oasis of calm and friendliness in a crazy world. We have spent a few nights here over the last two weeks (we are staying locally) and have always enjoyed the atmosphere. You are always made to feel welcome by the locals, who go out of their way to speak with you. The food is great (far... More

A little tucked out of the way but well worth the journey. We enjoyed all our meals, I'm not a fan of ribs but felt I must try them, the meat just fell off the bone and was truly delicious. You can order rum by the bottle or half/quarter. The atmosphere was good and there was a nice mix of... More

Great little bar Chris and his wife always make you welcome. Friday night is party night with a great range of music. Always make a resavation on a Friday because the bar is busy full of locals and expats. Look forward to ribs and fries and plenty of beer or rum each year I visit Barbados. As in a previous... More
