Surfside is one of Holetowns hotspots for having a beer overlooking the sea (perfect place to watch the sunset too). Surfside is pricey, even by Barbados standards, however the food is good and the atmosphere here is great.

Try the Flying Fish Burger here that comes with chips. The blackened chicken ceaser salad is also good. You can have breakfast here: toast & eggs, omelette etc. They do a chicken or beef roti and grilled cheese sandwiches - all come with chips. The 'grilled cheese' sandwiches are more like toasties rather than the american version of 'grilled cheese'. The mozzarella and tomato grilled sandwich is very good. Surfside is not that great for veggies as there is little choice, although this is faily commonplace in Holetown, but veggie's will be able to find something on the menu.

We didn't have dinner here but the menu looked fine although there were only a couple of pasta dishes as veggie options which isn't always appealing in the Carribbean heat!

Daiquiri's are good - we tried strawberry and the pineapple ones
Rum punch is also good but beware, they are VERY lethal!!!

Surfside attracts locals as well as tourists but is never really overly crowded which is quite nice. The locals are so friendly (as we found everywhere on the island) and you are likely to get chatting to some of them. The bar also shows sports during the day so you can catch up on games as you sip your beer.

Sunday nights they have a Steel band playing which is good fun and after a few rum punches, you may get dancing to the band like we did!

Favorite Dish: Meat eaters - Blackened chicken ceaser salad
Veggies - Grilled mozzarella and tomato sandwich
