We return to Barbados every year and always leave a night open for Chris's place. Local, rustic and lots of fun!

Our taxi driver recommended Chris's place to us for good local food and service in a very casual setting. Not somewhere you would drive by but close to the West coast (Gibbes) up Rock Dundo Road. The food was basic and very tasty, it's not a big place and you are advised you should phone and order Ribs the night... More

This place is basically frequented by locals. They have limited menu which is changes daily and repeats weekly. The food is extremely good and plentiful. We had the chicken and lamb chops. The sides were also excellent. The price is absolutely great. Not fancy but lots of fun.

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
