My husband and I are going to Grenada in March and looking for good restaurants and suggestions on what to do. We will be staying at the Calabash Hotel and plan to rent a car.
Thanks

    Aaaaahhhh Grenada...my favorite island! ((L)) ((L))

    Restaurants:
    Boots Cuisine -
    Highly recommend! No trip to Grenada should be complete without trying this restaurant. Serves delicious local food in the verandah of Boots & Ruby's home which was turned into a restaurant. Be sure and try the Big Daddy drink. This is located in Woodlands, a 5 minute drive from Calabash.

    La Sagesse -
    Nice place to spend the day and have lunch. The food is pretty good.

    Le Chateau -
    Good food, reasonable prices. A favorite of locals. Try their crab back, it's delicious. Located at Le Marquis shopping centre in Grand Anse.

    Red Crab -
    Just down the street from Calabash. Seafood crepe voltaire is quite yummy. It's probably a zillion calories, but worth it. This restaurant is a good standby...some items tend to be a bit salty though.

    The Beach House -
    A very nice restaurant located on a beautiful beach. The portions tend to be small, but very good. Leave room for the Grand Etang mud pie dessert!

    LaLuna Restaurant -
    Pasta pappardelle is gooooood. A nice romantic restaurant. I would recommend hiring if you plan to go for dinner, unless you are an adventurous driver. The road to LaLuna is uphill, not entirely paved, and quite narrow in places.

    The Ladies at the SGU Campus on Grand Anse -
    One of the best deals for lunch. Very local food, but oh so tasty! This is very popular with locals and tourists that are in the know.

    Aquarium -
    Popular place for Sunday BBQ. This is one place I have not tried, but it gets a lot of raves from others.



    Things to do:
    Beaches - Grand Anse, Morne Rouge (aka BBC), La Sagesse, beach where the Beach House and LaLuna are located

    Check out the market in St. Georges on a Saturday morning and purchase your fresh spices to take home.

    Take an island tour - half day or full day. It is well worth is to do this with a guide as they are a wealth of information about the places you will visit, as well as getting an insight on the history of the island and the people. Would recommend visiting one of the spice estates like Douglaston, the nutmeg processing station, one of the many waterfalls, Belmont Plantation (you can even have a nice lunch here), Rivers Antoine Rum Distillery (smoothest overproof rum I've had!).

    Go up to Fort George and take in the fantastic views of the Carenage, Lagoon, and Grand Anse.

    Fish Friday - I would also suggest getting a guide for this or joining one of the organized tours. The drive up in the dark can be quite an adventure if you are not familiar with the area (dark, curvy road).

    Don't forget to bring back some Grenada Chocolate Company chocolates, and fresh spices.

    Enjoy Grenada! :-)

    My wife and I are leaving tomorrow for 2 weeks at the Blue Horizon in Grand Anse. While we have been to Grenada before this is our first trip back after hurricane Ivan.

    In addition to the eateries suggested by Mymoosie I would also suggest the Le Boulangerie at the Marquis Plaza and the Nutmeg in St. Georges along the Carnage.

    We loved the Beach House and thoroughly enjoyed the 'ladies' lunch at the university campus.

    Do take a tour of the island. We went to most of the places outlined in Mymoosie's suggestion and may do the same again since we enjoyed it so much. Be careful of the Rivers Antoine rum....it really is white lightening.

    We regretted only bringing home 2 of the Grenada chocolate bars. This time we will stock up.

    Be sure and try The Tropicana for breakfast...good food at reasonable prices. I haven't eaten dinner there, but surprisingly, they serve Chinese along with caribbean fare. I have had their egg rolls as an appetizer with drinks...yum!

    Across the street from the Tropicana is the Grenada Yacht Club. Fantastic food! Their garlic shrimp is some of the best I've ever had. They also are very reasonable, good drink prices, friendly people. A lot of yachties and ex-pats hang out here.

    I second the suggestion for La Boulangerie....they have nice pastries for breakfast and to die for pizza for lunch or dinner...done the caribbean way of course!

    Sur la Mer on Morne Rouge beach is the restaurant attached to the Gem hotel...nice place to stop for lunch or drinks while enjoying Morne Rouge.

    Don't forget to visit Grand Etang and the volcano crater lake...friendly monkeys seen here!
