Highs & Lows

  • Giorgio and his team couldn’t have been more helpful, friendly and generous. Nothing was too much trouble.

  • I don’t usually like a menu that is a mix of cuisines, but the kitchen knows what they’re doing and there is some great cooking here.

  • Difficult to find any fault at Lone Star. The most beautiful setting on a quiet stretch of west coast beach. I even found a turtle to swim with!

    Important Bits

    • Type

      Restaurant with rooms.

    • Vibe

      Chilled luxe.

    • Location

      On the sublime west coast of Barbados.

    • Rooms

      3 deluxe suites, and they’ve just opened their 3 bedroom Beach House next door which has 2 additional suites.

    • Music

      Holiday vibe.

    • Year Opened

      Lone Star opened over 10 years ago when it was converted from a garage into a restaurant and then added rooms. Lone Star re-opened after a complete refurbishment in November 2013.

    • Designed By

      The hotel's owners.

    • Pool/Gym

      Neither, but you don’t need them when your room is right on the beach!

    • Restaurant

      The restaurant takes up the main space of the old garage and sits directly on the beach. Beautifully designed in blue and white (although not nautical themed) this is a great spot for lunch or dinner. We loved the staff uniform of garage boiler suits.

    • Bar

      A lovely perch-at bar as well as lounge seating, super comfy.

    • Minibar

      The standard selection.

    • Wifi

      Yes.

    • Children

      Either, but I would say leave them at home. This place is a real treat to get away from it all.

    • Price

      Expensive, but well worth it.

    We loved the seriously good meat at Backyard Barbecue.

    There is a great mix of restaurants in Barbados, from very expensive such as The Cliff to roadside shacks.
