Bajan Blue....or is it Blue in Barbados.....

I don't think a Bajan would have spent so much for such lousy service or food...well maybe the lousy service but definitely not if it included tasteless food

Times Online: "The return flight for two to Barbados, best available class, is £14,708 on British Airways, £9,504 on Virgin, which is better anyway. So I saved £5,204 on my trip.

Just as well, because my Sandy Lane bill, after adjustment for double charging, was £93,726 for 21 nights — £4,463 a night. Could end up more with the pound dropping like the Zimbabwean dollar. No wonder the rich were squealing."

Maybe Sandy Lane should hire a Barbados chef or at least someone who knows something about Barbados Food.... since according to Winner

The three best meals I had in Barbados were at Fisher Pond Great House. I took Sandy Lane’s chairman, with his terrific family. They loved it. The chairman wrote great praise in the guest book.
I said to MacPherson, purveyor of the worst food ever, “I had the most marvellous lunch at Fisher Pond.” He adopted his usual look of sneering boredom.
Eventually he said, “I’ve been there. Twice.”
“What did you think of it?” I asked. A silence.
Then through gritted teeth he said, “It’s a nice building.”
“I wasn’t asking about the building,” I said. “What about the food?”
MacPherson sniffed, “It’s Bajan,” and walked away.

Will Sandy Lane follow Winner's advice and...“Buy a cannon,” I suggested. “Stuff Grant MacPherson in it. Light touchpaper. Stand back. Then watch him shoot out and drop over the horizon into the Caribbean Sea.”

If they do I have a candidate for the job and she lives right here in Barbados

What does Barbados think of Sandy Lane cuisine?

As someone going there in March I would be very keen to know if it still ranks high on the gourmet hit list.
