Love the little place right there in the shopping district. We met the owner while visiting the fish market and found ourselves in her place the next day. She was a perfect hostess and fun to talk to. Food was awesome!

Barbies has the best conch fritters on the island. She is the best business person around and owns many buildings. She "gets" customer service with a smile. I support here and will return.

You will be glad to experience the food at Barbies. The conch fritters are amazing and so is the fish. If you get to meet Barbie herself you will meet an awesome business woman and everyone on the island knows her!

We stopped here because our taxi/van driver said it was one of his favorites. It went well. You need to remember this is a rural country and these are local people. My 5 year old son said "oh no, we can't eat here" but he later changed him mind. It was the perfect local place on Grand Turk. The workers... More

Barbie's has good food but slow service. Slow service seems the theme in Grand Turk.We had dinner three times here. The first night we at all our food. The second night we had enough food to take home and eat the following night.

We stopped here while on an island tour and were pleasantly surprised since I had read that this location was a good spot for food and beverages. We were not disappointed as the conch fritters were amazing. They also offer alcoholic beverages and other meal options. Outside, there are table and chairs for those who want to enjoy the fresh...

Don't let the appearance of the exterior scare you. We had some lunch sitting at a picnic table outside. About finished eating we noticed it was getting dark, so decided to wait. Sure enough it rained, a "2 beer rain", which scattered cruise ship tourists. Fun time mingling with the locals.

Very good food for a reasonable price. The outdoor seating is great and the food is delicious. We had a few meals there while we were on the Island.
