Oistins on Friday Nights

Take a trip to the south coast of Barbados any Friday night and you will be amazed at the abundance of people who frequent this area. As a visitor to the island you may be tempted to ask why but truth be told, there is something truly festive about Oistin's Fish Fry that is constantly alluring to the people of Barbados and visitors to the island.

 

This festive atmosphere comes alive with great music, great friends, all night dancing and some of the most interesting conversations found anywhere in Barbados.

 

On arrival, the first thing that will probably be on your mind is the thought of good Bajan food. Be prepared to stand in line. That's just how heavy the demand is for food on these Friday nights. Flying fish, lobster, swordfish, tuna, mahi mahi, marlin and chicken are all available to simply expose you to what liming in Barbados is all about.

 

You can choose to sit at any of the many outdoor eating tables available. As there is always a crowd at Oistins Fish Fry, there is also a great possibility that these eating tables will have others at them dining by the time you get there. Not a problem as Bajans are some of the easiest people to get along with and would be more than happy for you to join their table if there's nothing else available.

 

There's a small stage where the brave at heart go onto and dance the night away to whatever genre of music is playing. Don't be fooled as the energy levels at Oistins Fish Fry are so enticing that even the not so brave at heart are often time seen letting go of their inhibitions and hitting the dance floor as well. It's just that exciting an ambience.

 

A visit to Barbados would not be the same unless you spend some time at Oistins.
