Rich wooden beams and stone tiles, clay pottery, straw mats, and colorful dinnerware set the style at Naniki (an Arawak word meaning "full of life"). Huge picture windows and outdoor porch seating allow you to enjoy the exhilarating view of surrounding hills and gardens along with your lunch of exquisitely prepared Caribbean standards. Seared flying fish, grilled dorado, stewed lambi (conch), and jerk chicken or pork are accompanied by cou-cou, peas and rice, or salad.
For dinner (by special request only), start with conch fritters or Caribbean fish soup; then try roasted Bajan black-belly lamb or shrimp garnished with tarragon. Sunday brunch is a Caribbean buffet often featuring great jazz music by some of the Caribbean's best musicians. Vegetarian dishes are always available.
