Cost of all foods is slightly more in the supermarkets than UK. Restaurants anything from at the top £65 per head at the cliff to an average of £11-£20 at say one of the st lawrence gap restaurants. Some local bars maybe £8 for one plate of food and of course there are plenty of road side bars that cook chicken or fish on a grill for cheap money (for locals anyway) which can be very good.
Local banks beer average £1.30 275ml bottle in bars(8 for £2.30ish in supermarket) and spirits reasonable especially rum. wine is a bit more £2.50-£3.50 a glass (£5.50 upwards a bottle in super market)
Lastly lots of fish markets all around island At Bridgetown its about £1.50-£2.00 per LB with bone but they will fillet it for you and give you the head to boot cos you pay for that aswell.
