This classic Bajan Holetown house, amid the restaurants of First and Second Streets, has been known for its blend of European and Caribbean cuisine for more than 15 years. There’s a bar-lounge downstairs and a cozy dining room upstairs with a dining terrace—all a bit snug, so call ahead for reservations. There are three menus to choose from to fit your appetite: Tapas (conch fritters, jerk chicken skewers, beef or jerk pork sliders), Bistro (fish and chips, lamb and veg pie, seafood chowder, grilled mahi mahi), and Classic (roast pumpkin soup, blackened catch of the day, seared grouper steak, lamb shank osso buco). There’s also live entertainment on Thursday and Friday nights, with a DJ taking over after 10:30pm on Fridays. Fun fact: This house once belonged to British insurance mogul and bon vivant Ronnie Driver, who raised two of his daughters—including the actress Minnie Driver—here on Barbados.
