Fodor's In Focus Barbados & St. Lucia
Waterside Restaurant Review
You won't get much closer to dining on the water without being on a boat. Tables here are set on a broad porch suspended over the beachfront and spaced generously to allow for pleasant and private conversation; all the bustle of vibrant St. Lawrence Gap is left at the door. Once inside, the setting becomes sophisticated, tranquil, and definitely picturesque; the mood, quiet and intimate. And then there's the food. Chef Michael Hinds's truly elegant cuisine features dishes such as seared and crusted red snapper with tarragon emulsion, fire-roasted tiger prawns on bamboo and lemon-scented basmati rice with cashews, five-spice braised short rib with garlic mashed potatoes, and more. For dessert, don't miss the spiced banana spring rolls with coconut ice cream and brandy caramel coulis.
