We found Fred's last year and had a great time being regaled with tales of his life. We had been looking forward to returning and although this year Fred wasn't too well, we saw him on our first visit and he's still a character. We ate there a few times and the rib eye steak is to die for -... More

Fred's Bar is a Barbados institution, if you have ever driven the southern coast of the island you've passed it. I've know about Fred's via my father, from early visits to the island in the 70's, when I was about 8. I've been back many time on my own, and have never had a bad time or bite to eat.... More

Dinner is whatever Fred has on hand! Some of us had steaks, some had pork chops, and some had burgers. Everything was cooked to order and was wonderful. Fred's son, Russell, even gave us a ride home in the back of his pickup. We had a blast!

One of the oddest places on the island. There is no toilet for instance and you use the one in his garage. He was not in the best of health when last there I I had to fetch my own ice - which was cool.. Pool table inside for the sporty types.. Cheap beer and lotta laughter... Ask him about... More
