2698 BARBADOS - Oistins Fish Fry

Oistins is an active fishing town on the south coast of Barbados and is a hub of activity on weekend nights. On Friday night particularly, the big thing to do is go to the fish fry at Oistins Bay Gardens. The food is the main draw - excellent fish, (tuna, swordfish, marlin, mahi-mahi, flying fish), lobster, chicken etc served in an extremely informal setting. It's all cooked on the spot in front of you. Of course, Calypso music is not missing.
