Apparently this is a must do if you are in Barbados on a Friday night. It was lots of fun, with live music and dancing in various stages and lots of options for grilled fish. A bit pricey but worth the experience!

Had a meal here with friends. Definitely an interesting experience, it gets very busy on Fridays so it's advisable to come early 6ish. Fish was fabulous, it's rustic cooking on BBQs but it's very nicely done and found the fish to be excellent quality. Not a formal affair so don't come expecting that more like a busy market atmosphere. An... More

A wonderful night out - great fresh food cooked to order, music, good atmosphere...what more could you want? It's true about getting there early - traffic is building up by about 6. We parked at the shopping centre just outside and walked in - just a couple of minutes. Grab a cold beer and wander around to soak up the... More

The locals are so friendly and will show you a way to the pier where we saw the biggest turtle ever! Also, try the flying fish! It's amazing!

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I did not fully realize that this event is more tailored for locals than tourists . . . and that is a good thing. Lots of noise, Banks beer and great seafood. I recommend UNCLE GEORGE!

Our hotel did a special bus service to and from Oistins from way up in St Peter Parish. We arrived about 7pm and the place was already heaving with people and very, very loud. You could hear and really feel the bass in your chest - I doubt this would really be ok for older people, they might find it... More

We went around 7pm to try and beat the crowd.. however it was busy as soon as it opened at 6:30pm. Traffic is slow driving into the area, and once there a lot of restaurants try to get you to eat at their place. Have a look around first and see what kind of fish each place is offering.

The music was entertaining and crowd was friendly. I wish this was a 7 day a week thing because we woukd have been back the next day... More
