Walk down a garden path to Chateau Mygo (a corruption of the word Marigot), pick out a table on the deck, pull up a chair, and soak up the waterfront atmosphere of what is probably the prettiest bay in the Caribbean. The tableau is mesmerizing—and that's at lunch, when you can order a sandwich, burger, fish- or chicken-and-chips, salads, or grilled fish or savory coconut chicken with peas and rice and vegetables. At dinner, chef–owner Doreen Rambally—whose family
has owned and operated this popular dockside restaurant since the mid-1970s—draws on three generations of East Indian and creole family recipes. Beautifully grilled fresh tuna, red snapper, kingfish, mahimahi, and local lobster are embellished with flavors such as ginger, mango, papaya, or passion fruit, and then dished up with regional vegetables—perhaps callaloo, okra, dasheen, breadfruit, christophene, or yams. You can also have roast pork, beef, a chicken dish, or pizza. This is a very casual restaurant where locals, yachties, and frequent visitors know they'll get a delicious, reasonably priced meal right on the waterfront. And oh, that view!
