The lobster was great. Place was run down but they could reinvest and make this place shine. Cute seaside dining but needs a facelift.

After a morning on the beach this restaurant was an ideal choice for our lunch, even though we were slightly sandy to say the least we were welcomed in the food and service were excellent and the view, we will be back.

We went there with 5 teenage kids. The chalkboard had a small limited menu. We decided to order lobsters given they are supposedly known for them. Their pricing is completely a hoax. You assume the lobsters cost $50 usd. They told us to pick whatever...More

We visited the Lobster Pot a few times while staying near Speightstown. The food is good but very expensive for what you get, particularly a whole lobster and the prices are somewhat unclear (although even the lobster roll is BBD80). Generally found better value and...More

The Lobster Pot is situated on one of the finest beaches on the west coast of Barbados, where turtle eggs can often be seen hatching right in front of the restaurant. Seafood is the order of the day but we offer many other options including curried goat, shrimps, calamari, chicken and a fantastic surf and turf. We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner Tuesday to Sunday (closed on Mondays) and offer complimentary transport from anywhere on the west coast (dinner only, two people minimum and subject to a minimum spend of BDS$100 per person). We also offer complimentary beach loungers and umbrellas for our guest's use. Every Sunday - beach BBQ with live music from local band Rockaway. Full moon parties starting on October 27th (and then on November 25th and December 25th). Live music from Rockaway, beach BBQ and fire juggler
