Dining in the Caribbean

Posted on

People often travel to immerse themselves in the local culture, be it swapping stories at a local bar, enjoying the sand in between their toes while they dine or being pointed by the locals towards the best food on the Island. The Caribbean is renowned for its friendly locals, relaxed lifestyle, seriously good jerk sauce and abundance of seafood… Our advice when you are next in the Caribbean is to keep an open mind when trying new local dishes – you are likely to stumble along something incredible. The Caribbean offers a selection of fantastic fine dining, beach bars, small island beach dining and incredible street food therefore we have created a list of our favourite restaurants that we feel you just have to visit on your next trip!

If you would like any further recommendations or for us to book a table for you, please do not hesitate in contact us on 01752 880880.


Sushi at South Point

Inspired by Asian, Mediterranean and Middle East cuisine, they offer a fantastic mix of fresh, high quality and locally sourced ingredients – the sushi really is to die for! Though the restaurant’s stylish setting suggests fine-dining and dress codes, South Point is the definition of island chic – understated and easy-going. Both the lounge and restaurant welcome non-hotel guests to enjoy the casual, cafe-style vibes. As a testament to this, the restaurant deck, which is suspended over water, is easily accessible by water and equipped for tying up dinghies and paddle boards. The Restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner from 6.00PM to 10:00PM.
