6 Caribbean restaurants we love
By Jessica Padykula
 
There are endless places to eat in the Caribbean. There are seemingly endless islands to visit, so that's no surprise, but it's nice to have a few go-tos among all that infinite choice. As lovers of all things Caribbean we're sharing our picks for six spots worth seeing out and eating at.
 
 
 
Coco Bistro, Turks & Caicos
The romantic setting alone is enough to keep anyone coming back to elegant Coco Bistro on Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. Just try not to be awed as you walk to your table, which happens to be set amidst the largest palm grove on Provodenciales. Here, ambiance is created by candle light, the stars above and lush tropical breezes. Service is relaxed yet prompt and able to answer questions and provide suggestions. The menu consists of local favorites like fresh fish and seafood, all prepared with creative twists and plated with artistic imagination. If you feel a tickle at your feet, it’s likely the resident cat Coco coming by to say hello.
 
Simply Fish, Aruba
It’s not every day you get to dine right on the sand, feeling the soft grains between your toes as you dine on expertly prepared fish and seafood. But that’s the case at Simply Fish in Aruba, one of the restaurants at the Aruba Marriott. Choose your fish of choice, how you’d like it prepared (baked, fried, grilled) and what side dishes you’d like with it and what you get is fresh, simple and tasty – perfect for the breezy beachside setting.
 
Veya Restaurant, Anguilla
There are so many good restaurants on Anguilla it’s hard to decide on a favorite. But talk to anyone on the island about where they like to eat and relaxed yet stylish Veya Restaurant will likely me mentioned as a must-visit. The open air setting is chic and charming and the eclectic menu focuses on locally caught lobster, crayfish and snapper, while also bringing in other proteins, unique flavor combinations (passionfruit mustard sauce for example) and enough choice to satisfy any palette. Live music Monday, Thursday and Friday creates a more lively experience without being too loud.
 
Carambola Beach Club, St. Kitts
This luxe restaurant in St. Kitts makes anyone who dines here feel like a VIP. The large space seems cold at first, but the soft lighting and soft breezes create a surprisingly intimate dining experience. No matter what you’re looking for you’ll find it on the menu here, from pasta to seafood to sushi – and it’s all delicious. They also boast the island’s largest wine list. If you’re here for lunch the setting is more casual, while dining here in the evening truly feels like a special occasion.
 
Blonda, San Juan
Blonda, in the Condado beach area of San Juan was a surprise find on the way to eat somewhere else (which happened to be closed). The minimalist space is sleek without being uninviting and the menu is vast. So vast, you’ll likely have a hard time deciding. We can vouch for the crispy thin crust pizzas, silky pastas and the decadent burrata cheese salad. The laid back atmosphere and the food encourage lingering over a glass of wine.
 
Ferdie's footsteps, St. Vincent
Start your meal at local favorite Ferdie’s Footsteps in St, Vincent with a cool, sweet-tart golden apple drink, the national drink of St. Vincent. Then, sit back and get ready to get your fill of fresh, stick-to-your-ribs hoe cooking. The small restaurant caters to locals, a small smattering of tourists and those returning from a hike up La Soufrière volcano. Fresh fish with hearty sides like plantains and breadfruit make for a filling lunch. The place can fill up fast, so if you’re in a rush, call ahead with your order.
