On the southwest coast around Coral Group, Uncle Roddy's is a fabulous solar-powered beach bar and restaurant that makes for a great spot to spend a lazy afternoon or come for sunset cocktails and dinner. If you want to eat – and you should, the grilled lobster and other seafood they cook up beachside is fresh and delicious – then you need to reserve 24 hours in advance, as they only buy enough ingredients for confirmed guests. The bar serves all the usual tropical cocktails including Roddy's signature drink, the Barbuda Smash. Roddy's does lunch and dinner (again only with reservations). Look for Roddy's right next to the Barbuda Cottages, which is a locally run guesthouse. It is a 15-minute taxi ride from the main village.
