Eat & Drink
It’s often thought that the best way to truly experience the culture of a new country is through its food. Eating like a local, experiencing the traditional customs and spending time to understand how the locals live is a great way to fully immerse yourself in Caribbean culture and character, and mealtimes present the perfect opportunity.
At Virgo Villas, a large number of our luxury properties on Barbados’ West Coast have the option of ‘in-villa’ staff, on hand to take the hard work out of mealtimes allowing you more time to make special memories with your loved ones. Our chefs are on hand to cater to your requirements and are more than happy to show you the best of Bajan food with dishes that encapsulate spicy combinations of meat and fish, complemented with the very best of local fresh ingredients.
There is no doubting that one of the best things on the island is the breath-taking sea-view, and coming a close second is having a lovely meal with the Caribbean sea in full view.Read more
