Called in at the Shipwreck Bar for a few beers and were pleased with the friendly welcome we received. It is quite small but very airy so not too warm and the drinks were well chilled. Mostly local in when we visited and all were happy to chat about life in general and their favourite football teams in particular. A... More

Finding value for money lunch on the West Coast of Barbados is not easy. This bar costs about a third of those on the sea front and is good value. The view from the terrace is of the local builders' merchants rather than the Caribbean but you come here for food and drink not the view. The available food is... More

Excellent food with good value for money. Friendly staff with welcoming nature. Drinks served how they should be. (Rum by the bottle) not by measures. Won't be disappointed

Shipwreck is a must! It's moved to Church Street across from the Lumber Company. Worth searching for! Reasonably priced and great food with friendly service and island atmosphere.

Head to the bus station and the crossroads where the yellow buses then take the left turn away from the town and the restaurant is opposite the lumber yard - still excellent food and service and great value for money - alos does take away meals if you are self catering in Speightstown

We went to the Shipwreck Bar for lunch with a friend who is local to the area and had a lovely meal. The staff were polite and helpful. When you go to a bar/restaurant in Barbados the staff appear to be arrogant or abrupt but they aren't. This is just the Bajan way and we have to accept that. Bajans... More

We ate at the shipwreck bar to try an authentic Barbados experience. It was terrible - the fish was overcooked, the potato wedges were horrible but the whole experience was made worse by the rudeness and arrogance of the barman / chef / waiter and the loud swearing by the people at the bar, who refused to moderate their language...
