This absolutely delightful restaurant is one of the best in the Caribbean. Proprietors Bob and Melinda Blanchard moved to Anguilla from Vermont in 1994 to fulfill their culinary dreams. A festive atmosphere pervades the handsome, airy white room, which is accented with floor-to-ceiling teal-blue shutters to let in the breezes, and colorful artwork by the Blanchards' son Jesse on the walls. A masterful combination of creative cuisine, an upscale atmosphere, attentive service,
and an excellent wine cellar (including a selection of aged spirits) pleases the star-studded crowd. The nuanced contemporary menu is ever changing but always good; house classics like corn chowder, lobster and shrimp cakes, and a Caribbean sampler are crowd-pleasers, and vegetarians will find ample choices. For dessert, you'll remember concoctions like the key lime "pie-in-a-glass" or the justly famous "cracked coconut" long after your suntan has faded.

We are staying at the Viceroy in Anguilla and we have had dinner at Blanchards, Pimms and Coba. Blanchards had great service, wonderful food from start to end and a very warm atmosphere.

Apparently children aren't welcome at this establishment. We sat down and were presented with the menu and waited and waited for a wine list, which we never recieved. So I set up my son's DVD player up, which we've used in the best resturants around the world, and were told that we were not permited to use it. He said that there was a sign posted but no one ever saw a sign posted that such devices were not permited, I think he made it. We did not
feel welcomed there and refused to pay $500+ for dinner wine when we were treated as outcasts. When we made these reservations through Cap Juluca we specically had them ask if they accepted children and Blanchards said they did but apparently they don't welcome everyone.
