We stopped here because our taxi/van driver said it was one of his favorites. It went well. You need to remember this is a rural country and these are local people.

Very good food for a reasonable price. The outdoor seating is great and the food is delicious. We had a few meals there while we were on the Island.

We enjoyed Barbies very much, sat outside to enjoy a beer and eat some fresh local food. The Conch Fritters were delicious, I had to order another batch they were that tasty! The locals are so friendly to sit and talk to. Great place to relax and enjoy life!

I like to try and eat where the locals eat while traveling. Well the locals do eat here but so does everyone one else. Good conch and good peas and rice. Nice environment sitting outside while the cruise ships are in. Owner and her family are super. Fun place!

We had some great food from Barbie! Not fancy but delicious local cuisine. It gets very busy on cruise days but the food is really good.
