Barbados is one of the oldest ports in the New World and currently a major travel destination; and the restaurant choices are surprisingly diverse. You can feast on fresh seafood, American favorites, French and Italian fare, but most interesting has to be the local Bajan dishes. Bajan cuisine is a mix of old and new, West Indian, European and Caribbean flavors dominate and fish is the main ingredient. Make sure you try the national dish of  Cou Cou (okra and grits) with flying fish (the symbol of Barbados). From inexpensive eats to fine dining you can find the local Bajan cuisine at any price point.
