Porter's Island Thyme Bistro Review

Owner Porter Williams serves potent alcoholic creations as well as fairly sophisticated local and international cuisine. Try steamed, freshly caught snapper in a pepper-wine sauce with peas and rice, or spicy-hot chicken curry served with tangy chutneys. Or you can order the "Porter" house steak. You can take cooking lessons from the chef, enjoy the nightly Filipino fusion tapas during happy hour, and join the gang for Friday-night pizza. This is a great place to make friends and the best place to catch up on island gossip. The airy, trellis-covered spot overlooks the salinas. There's a small shop with gifts and tourist information; you can also get a manicure or pedicure here. Reservations are essential here; put in your order for food in the morning and tell Porter what time you want to eat. Then explore, food will be waiting for you.

    So much fun we couldn't stand it

    The folks at Island Thyme make great burgers, great pizza, and wonderful local specialties. They have the most extensive liquor selection on-island and a great wine list. They have a an impressive gallery of Haitian art for sale as well as beautiful gold and silver jewelry. If you stay on Salt Cay...be sure to eat at Island Thyme, hang out at Island Thyme, believe anything Porter says, buy whatever Porter tells you, and do the "Zoo". You'll be happy you did.
