baros: food & drink

22 December 2013

Considering that almost everything is imported to the island, we were thoroughly impressed with the food at Baros. Although the price tag at the restaurants were really quite high, the inclusive breakfast buffet was so big and varied (and truly delicious!), that we didn't feel the need for it to be followed by a big lunch and dinner every day.

The breakfast buffet included all kinds of things from sashimi, curry, rice, eggs how you like them, fresh waffles (so so good), as well as the more traditional fare of pastries, bread and exotic fruits. They also presented us with a "What's On Today" program so we knew what activities and excursions were available.

All enjoyed on the balcony overlooking the sea.








The dishes offered at the two more casual restaurants, Lime and Cayenne, ranged from Asian dishes to burgers to salad and wraps. The Sails bar also had light dishes we chose to have some days, and pretty much everything we had, we liked.

It was particularly nice to get room service and enjoy our meal in private on our gorgeous deck.

Of course, we also enjoyed some cocktails throughout the week!













One evening, we enjoyed an extensive seafood buffet that had everything you could possibly think of - lobster, crab, sashimi, oysters, you name it they had it - and we had ourselves a feast.












Another special dinner we had was the d├ęgustation menu at The Lighthouse restaurant. Unfortunately it was a little dark and the photos of the food aren't great, but the setting was stunning and the food was delicious - my favourites, including lobster bisque, ahi tuna, duck cooked rare and king prawns.





On our last evening, as part of the honeymoon package, we were given a complimentary diner in a secluded part of one of the beaches, where we could enjoy dinner just the two of us. It was so beautiful and we had such a great dinner - the freshly grilled reed fish was so good!





Most nights, we unwound (from what, I don't know!) with drinks, and sometimes shisha (we tried it for the first time there), and a few nights with live music. It was utterly blissful.

  1. Oh how lovely! The dinner on the beach looks just ideal - that's a really thoughtful touch. If much of the food is imported, does this include the seafood? There must be lots available in a relaively local area - seems a shame to import?

  6. That picture of you two holding hands laying down...SO CUTE. And this looks just amazing. The seafood buffet sounds like it was to die for. I LOVE seafood and I can't even imagine how perfect it must have been at such a beautiful location! And those drinks with the bright blue ocean behind pictured BEAUTIFULLY! I'm definitely jealous! And that's really cute they gave you a private dinner with the honeymoon package. You have convinced me that this is where I need to go for my honeymoon haha.
