We are regular diners at Chris’s Place and always love our evenings there particularly on Fridays when there’s a DJ who plays great music to suit all. We were sad not to be able to go there during the Covid 19 lockdown here in Barbados...however we were thrilled to be able to go for dinner on one of the first evenings that Chris opened after the lockdown eased. Chris didn’t disappoint and we enjoyed a fantastic meal of fish, macaroni pie, rice and salad. A bottle of rum of course too completed our first post lockdown meal out. We cannot recommend Chris’s highly enough, Chris is always welcoming and the atmosphere in the bar amongst the regulars is always jolly with plenty of banter.More

We always make sure to have lunch here a couple times while we are home in the island. Never disappoints and the food for value ratio is absolutely on point. Fried fish Marlin or King are my fav’s with fresh cut fries/chips. Great staff and...very quaint typical Bajan shop!More

I really cannot believe the recent low reviews of Chris’s Bar! We love this place and have been coming here for over 10 years. A warm welcome awaits and a great local bar and supermarket off the beaten track in Rock Dundo. This is not...a la carte but delicious local food freshly prepared with a local vibe. Friday night is our favourite and you have to book in advance for their famous ribs and macaroni pie. They are the best on the island! Chris and Maureen always welcome us, staff serve us with a smile and DJ Antoinette is simply the best. This Friday I bought along some new faces and they absolutely loved it here! As always huge thanks for your hospitality.More

If you like sloppy service. Broken filthy chairs. Sticky plastic tables, and terrible school dinners, then this is the place for you! The prices are very cheap, but so they should be. The ribs were full of fat and the chips were soggy and tasteless....What a waste of an evening, again! (We have tried it twice!).More

We always try and make it to Chris' Place on a Friday and we did again last week. Great atmosphere (helped by the DJ), lovely food (Chicken, fish, ribs) and excellent value for money. Local and friendly, a genuine Bajan experience

We enjoyed some great take out food from Chris's kitchens whilst staying in self catering nearby. Proper meals local cuisine. Chris changes the menu each night. While you are waiting for your food to be cooked you can enjoy a cheeky rum in his character...bar next door.More
