Restaurants are casual affairs indeed, ranging from glorified rum shops to hotel dining rooms. Most serve classic Caribbean fare, including such specialties as goat water (a thick stew of goat meat, tubers, and vegetables that seems to have been bubbling for days), salt fish cake (codfish fritters), home-brewed ginger beer, and freshly made juices from soursop, mango, blackberry (different from
the North American species), guava, tamarind, papaya, and gooseberry.
What to Wear: Dress is informal even at dinner, though skimpy attire is frowned upon by the comparatively conservative islanders. Long pants are preferred, albeit not required, for men in the evening.
