CHAMPERS RESTAURANT

BARBADOS TIPS

 

Champers was a special treat for us in 2009.  We loved it so much we visited 3 times during our visit -- twice at night and once for lunch.  The menu is fantastic both at lunch and at dinner, and the service was excellent as well.  Make this restaurant one of your favorites also and let them know you read about them in Barbados Tips.


LUNCH:  In addition to yummy drinks, our lunch consisted of delicious starters of shrimp & avocado, and caesar salad.  Mains were chicken & mushroom fettucini, red snapper, crab crepe, coconut shrimp and flying fish.  Make reservations as it is a popular spot for business people as well as visitors.  We really splurged at lunch with drinks and also desserts, so it cost us about $50 US per person, but you can get by for way less than that.


DINNER:  We tried a starter of grilled sea scallops with risotto and citrus cream ($18 US); Mains included beef tenderloin with garlic mash, veggies, and a cognac and mushroom sauce ($50 US); jumbo prawns in red thai curry and coconut sauce with basmati rice and veggies ($33 US), and pepper spiced pork tenderloin with sweet potato mash, grilled veggies and a caramelized apple sauce ($35 US).  Everything was delicious, fantastic service and spectacular setting.  They have a great outdoor bar too if you want to hang out there.

July 2010 saw another island visit and another 3 times to Champers.  This restaurant continues to maintain it’s high standards for food and service.  And the wonderful setting really adds to the enjoyment of a visit.  We were fortunate to have Rhonda as our server and we were treated like royalty.  The service was outstanding and a warm sense of humor made Rhonda definitely stand out as one of the island’s best.  Champers outstanding chef is Mr. Pedro Newton.


There were 6 of us for dinner and one of our evenings we some of the foods we enjoyed were Coconut Shrimp, Dolphin, Scallop & Risotto; Atlantic Salmon, Yellow Fin Tuna, Fillet of Beef, Jerk Pork Loin and several wonderful desserts.

Back in October 2010 and several more fantastic meals.  Lenora served us this time and Jason was the bar man.   One visit we enjoyed  starters of a Crab Crepe, Scallops and Risotto.  For our mains we had the Parmesan Crusted Barracuda and the Fillet of Beef.  Everything was of the highest standard and made us look forward to going back another time and trying out more from their delicious menu.  We had a table by the water and the service was fantastic as well.  For a magical evening be sure to visit Champers.  An interesting aside:  Champers has been featured on an episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker.

Our 31st island visit in October 2011 was outstanding.  Champers is one of our all-time favorites.  This time after our delicious drinks for starters we had shrimp & mango salad, mushrooms stuffed with crab, and fish 3 ways (salmon, grouper & tuna) - scrumptious.  Then for our mains I had a fabulous 6 oz. filet mignon and 6 oz. lobster tail - both delicious and my husband enjoyed a fantastic Crusted Barracuda Their excellent chef, Pedro, does a great job on the food.  All of this with wine came to $210 US.
