Zagat Releases New Best of Barbados Guide Covering top Restaurants, Bars, Attractions & Golf

Zagat Survey Partners With Barbados Tourism Authority to Offer
First and Only Zagat Guide to a Caribbean Island

NEW YORK, Sept. 16 /CNW/ - Zagat Survey, the world's leading provider of
consumer survey-based leisure content, today released its 2007 Best of
Barbados guide, the first and only Zagat guide to a Caribbean island. Based on
the opinions and expertise of nearly 1,500 natives and frequent visitors, this
new guide contains ratings and reviews for 169 top restaurants, bars,
nightclubs, attractions and golf courses across the Island.
"Barbados is a breathtaking island and one of the best places in the
world to kick back and relax, but it's also full of top notch restaurants,
exciting nightclubs, and world class golf courses," said Tim Zagat, CEO of
Zagat Survey. "To find the best the island has to offer, what better resource
could one ask for than a guide written by nearly 1,500 aficionados who know
the area best?"

Surveyors call it "simply the best" so it should be no surprise that the
"flawless" "out-of-this-world" Eclectic fare at The Cliff should take both Top
Food and Most Popular honors (and the number two spot for Service). Coming in
second for both Food and Most Popular is the "fantastic" and "enchanting"
Champers Wine Bar. Rounding out the top three is "top-notch" and "stunningly
beautiful" Restaurant at Southsea for Top Food (as well as first place honors
for Top Service and second place for Top Décor). The "sensational"
"imaginatively presented" fare at "romantic" The Tides runs third for Most
Shifting Sands: The new Survey confirms that the top restaurants are no
longer limited to the West Coast. In fact, of the Survey's Top Five for Food,
three - Café Luna, Champers and the Restaurant at Southsea - are on the South
Coast, as are five of the top ten Most Popular eateries: Bubba's, Josef's,
Pisces, Champers and the Restaurant at Southsea.
Favorite Foods: When it comes to favorite cuisines, one choice stands
clear above the rest - home grown, Caribbean style cooking. With 27% of the
vote, Caribbean cooking far exceeds the second place contender, Italian, which
gathers just 19%. French comes third with 12% of the vote.

For those excited about heading out after dark, Barbados has plenty to
offer. At the top of the Most Popular list (and third for Appeal) is a
"happening" place called Harbour Lights where you can put your "feet in the
sand" and "party under the stars." For a "brilliant" taste of "Bajan flavour,"
"don't miss" the "down-home" offerings of Oistins Fish Fry, Barbados' second
Most Popular nightspot, which is also number two in the Appeal category. And
coming in third is McBride's Pub and Cookhouse where there's "always something
different" musically and the nightclub is a "good mix of locals and tourists."
At the top of the Appeal list is Bajan Roots & Rhythm, where "fire eaters,
stilt walkers, and showgirls" present the island's "most spectacular show."

Seizing the top slot for Popularity is the "tranquil" "underground
wonderland" Harrison's Cave, known for its "stunning" stalagmites and
stalactites and other "awesome" formations. Taking second place in the
Popularity category is "exciting" Barbados Wildlife Reserve, home to
"close-up" experiences with a slew of "freely roaming" animals including the
"much-touted" green monkeys. And closing out the top three Most Popular is
also the number one in Top Appeal, Island Safari, known for its "exhilarating"
yet "educational" excursions. Second in Appeal is the "Rolls-Royce of
catamaran excursions" Cool Runnings Catamaran Cruises, followed close behind
by its "very attentive" and "warm-hearted" competitor El Tigre Catamaran

The 2007 Best of Barbados guide also includes a half dozen of the
Island's most "attractive" and "fun-to-play" golf courses, from the "best on
the Island" Royal Westmoreland to the oldest, "modest" nine-holes at Rockley
Golf Course. Golf courses are rated for the quality of the course, the
facilities, service and value.
