Brown Sugar, Barbados

I originally intended to do one post with a review of several restaurants that I have visited in the past 2 months, since I don’t have great pictures for some of them. However, that post (in progress) seems to be getting a bit long, so why not separate them? That way when I revisit some of them (maybe with the Nikon d80 for better pics!) I can revise the posts! So here goes.

Brown Sugar, Aquatic Gap, St Michael

I have been to this restaurant 2 or 3 times and each time I was impressed and satisfied by the food. It was really well presented (beautiful and sorry I don’t have any pictures) with lovely combinations of seafood and veggies. The decor is leafy outdoors, which is nice, and the walls are reminiscent of a woven hut (note: it is enclosed and covered). It is a mid-sized restaurant for Barbados, but on busy nights I think a reservation would be recommended. Service was very friendly. This is gourmet Bajan food, using primarily local ingredients to create the dishes.

Short review, I know. But the only times I have been there so far have been with senior work colleague and I didn’t want to pull out the camera :-) and fully document the experience.

  2. Hi Chris – I believe that is the full adress – Aquatic Gap, St Michael, Barbados – on the road to the Hilton, and opposite the Grand Barbados Hotel.

  3. Brown Sugar is a wonderful place to eat. I went there a couple of time a few years ago and had a good time. Then the restaurant got damage in a fire and I have not been back since. Maybe, when I am on vacation in the summer I will go to Brown Sugar again.

  4. I’ve been to Brown Sugar quite a few times before it was burnt down and I always enjoyed the food there. Chennette, do they still make pepperpot?

    The restaurant is owned by Guyanese. Well I guess you would have to say Barbadian now since the folks now managing it would all have been born here.

  5. Much Guyanese connections in Barbados :-) And vice versa, I know. I can’t remember seeing pepperpot on the menu, but I would have been focused on the seafood dishes.
