The setting is Barbados-perfect: An open-sided deck cantilevered out over the sand of the beach and flanked by tiki torches. This always trendy restaurant is part of the island’s most unusual boutique hotel (recommended separately), a converted 1940s Texaco station and mechanic shop. Refurbished by its new owners in 2013, Lone Star seems content to remain married to the fixtures of its internationally inflected Italian-American menu: seared yellowfin tuna nicoise, little neck clam linguine, black angus rib-eye, and chicken tikka masala—though the go-to dish is the homemade shepherds pie. Lunch brings lower prices, wood-fired pizzas, sandwiches (club, burger, pulled pork, and panko-fried flying fish, and a few basic fish and pasta dishes.
