Anacaona Review

At Grace Bay Club, this thatch-roofed restaurant has the best setting in the Turks and Caicos, and perhaps in the entire Caribbean. Despite its elite clientele and high prices, the restaurant continues to offer a memorable dining experience minus any formality and attitude (and minus the air-conditioning). That said, children under 12 are not allowed, and long pants and collared shirts are required for men. Oil lamps on the tables, gently revolving ceiling fans, and the murmur of the trade winds add to the Edenic environment. The entrancing ocean views and the careful service make this an ideal choice when you want to be pampered. The kitchen uses the island's bountiful seafood and fresh produce to craft healthy, Mediterranean-influenced cuisine. It's a good thing the setting is amazing, though; the portions are tiny for what you pay.

    Distrought in Paradise

    Can't rate the food here because I never got to eat. After making reservations and showing up 5 minutes early I waited 40 minutes and spent $35 on two cocktails. When I went to the hostess desk to ask about the table no one was manning it so I decided to leave. The bar manager caught me on the way out and apologized and got us our table, BUT 20 more minutes later no server had approached us so we left again. This restaurant is too expensive to not give impeccable service from start to finish, why REQUIRE reservations if you are not going to honor them.

    Disappointing

    We visited Anacaona in January 2008. The food here was quite a disappointment. Appetizers and entrees were mediocre, at best. Dessert was frozen and clearly had been made days before and stored. Considering the price paid, this meal was not worth the money. If this restaurant were in NYC, my suspicion is that it would be lucky to get a single star.

    The beachfront location was very nice (assuming no rain/wind). Service was mediocre and slow, like so many places in the Caribbean.
