Fodor's Review

India has had an important historical influence on many islands in the Caribbean. To start, there's the heritage of its people (descendents of both indentured servants and wealthy businessmen), the colorful madras plaids, and the curry flavors that are a staple of Caribbean cuisine. At night, Anse Chastanet's Trou au Diable restaurant transforms itself into Apsara, an upscale dining experience where modern Indian cuisine is served in an extraordinarily romantic, candlelit,

beachfront setting. The innovative menu, mixing East Indian and Caribbean cooking, produces food that's full of flavor but not too spicy, although you can opt for some dishes that are hotter than others. You might start with mulligatawny soup with cumin yogurt or vegetable samosas, followed by coconut-chili king prawns, pork vindaloo, or tandoori-roasted salmon, lamb chops, chicken, or lobster. Definitely order the naan bread, either plain or flavored with almond, coconut, or raisin. And for dessert, depending on your appetite, choose the mango, saffron, or seamoss-flavored kulfi (Indian-style ice cream) or go all the way with Apsara's Temptation (tandoori-baked pineapple with honey, saffron, and passion-fruit syrup, kulfi, and sun-blushed chili).
