Description: Mr Vic is a roadside bar situated in Payne's bay a mile south of Holetown.Though not fine dining, Mr Vic has over the last 4 yrs established a reputation for serving excellent food at affordable prices, with a choice of both Carribbean & British fare. Mr Vic caters for groups as well as couples, families and singles. A large variety of local and international cocktails are mixed by Mr Vic himself ( arguably the best barman on the West coast)Live music is also played. Steel pan on a Thursday & Fab Jazz on a Sunday

We visited Mr Vics for our 1st meal on arriving in Barbados, and it was worth it. Food was excellent & service. Vic & Karen are the best hosts. Nothing was too much trouble & very good value for the money paid.
Highly recommend place to have a meal or a drink.

We have been coming to Paynes Bay for a number of years. We like to try new places. But we also like to return to a restaurant that offers excellent food and drinks, as well as the kind of warm reception that owner/managers Karen and Victor provide. The food is solid bistro cuisine, with a Caribbean accent. The only time of the year that I eat macaroni pie, is when I visit Mr Vic, and I eat it on each and every visit. There is always a "fish of the day" and there are always excellent cocktails served up by Mr. Vic himself.
Victor has lived his entire life on the west coast of Barbados, so there is no better guide to Paynes Bay and its environs. Karen is a British expat, who is simply a treat to spend some time chatting with about the island.
Mr. Vic Bar is in my experience, dependably good.

I am so sorry that you have seen fit to leave a review that is offensive and untrue ..... Whilst your husband was jovial and charming and in fact left a very generous tip.....It was obvious from start to finish that there was no pleasing you.....

We had our first evening meal of the holiday there and came back for two Reggae nights, when the tables are all booked, and also one other night when we joined in the post Gold Cup evening fun. There is a good cocktail menu and a really good bar vibe. We will be back.

The music was good reggae. Dinner was okay, service left a bit to be desired. If you are looking for music and drinks, may be an option.
