Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Barrouallie is famous for hunting pilot whales. It's a really big town. They dry and salt the flesh of the pilot whales and it turns back, hence the name black fish. They also cook the skin for a long time, Scripps. I know one woman here in Canada, her mother brings 5lb of frozen scripps for her because she loves it so much. Me I didn't care for it much. It was quite gamey and tough. I haven't cooked the blackfish yet which you apparently cook like salt cod, with onions and tomatoes after removing most of the salt. Salt cod isn't even native, but it is a staple in the national cuisine. Barrouallie is quite a big town but their blackfish andscripps are rarely traded outside of the town. I have never found them in any Kingstown market. I have seen pilot whales jumping from the ferry to Beqiua, but I have never found blackfish outside of Barrouallie

Barrouallie, is an excellent example of what a 'small town' island flavor is all about. With it's warm friendly atmosphere and quite suttle beach, you will feel as if, 'you have found paradise'. It is true, that it used to be a whaleing town, but still up to this day that is where the island's 'black fish' is from. It will invite you and captavate you, once you have visited the suttle town of Barrouallie.

On a recent sailing trip we stopped here for the night and dinner. It was a good meal with an interesting pair of hosts. Better than some restaurants we went to on other islands. I always enjoy St. Vincent in general. Its the ultimate off the beaten path destination that is fun to sail to!

Barrouallie has been a big whaling town and is famous for scripps, which are an aquired taste. That said the views from the highway are amazing.

Our driver Mr Fraser took us to the site of Pirates of the Caribbean but not without taking us through Barrouallie where he's from. Very nice area where you get a strong sense of brotherhood and community.

Barrouallie is reached along the Leeward Highway, the drive is spectacular cliff top views, hidden bays, flora and fauna, Barrouallie itself is a small village with all the facilities you would expect.
