It's lunch time in Barbados. You are either on vacation or taking a quick break between meetings or on a full lunch break. You want fresh, tasty food and a pleasant environment and all of your usual haunts or the places recommended just don't seem appealing today. Wait a minute... check out this restaurant called Apropos.
With two locations, one on the busy Wildey main road in a high traffic commercial area and the other in the heart of Bridgetown, Apropos is perfect both for the local who knows his way around or the visitor who wants news experiences and doesn't mind going off the beaten track (i.e. the coast road).
The meals at Apropos cater to all tastes. There are Caesar salads, paninis (chicken, tuna), wraps (turkey, chicken). The hot buffet varies daily, but is sure to offer fish, macaroni pie, or lasagne. The pasta salads (e.g. chicken, shrimp), with your choice of vegetables are quite popular.
Not really marketed as a coffee shop, Apropos does provide several types of beverages for the enjoyment of its customers. Non-alcoholic branded items like Banks LLB (lemon lime and bitters), complement the fresh lemonade, smoothies and sodas which are available. It is also possible to get some of those nifty speciality coffee drinks.
Check out the menu display which is erected on the wall in clearly legible print size!! It makes life very, very easy for you.
The Apropos locations are open Mondays to Thursdays from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Fridays, closing time is 8:00 p.m., sometimes running through to 9:00 p.m. Saturdays' opening hours are a tad different, as the restaurants open from 8:30 a.m. and closes at 6:00 p.m. The telephone number at the Wildey location is (246) 426-3659; Bridgetown: (246) 426-8464.
Barbados is a cuisine lover's dream. Don't stick to what you already know: try Apropos!
