Fodor's Review

You'll recognize this restaurant by the big sign out front made from one side of a red 1964 Peugeot 404, but inside the restaurant at Parrot Cove Lodge, Chef Rob Pronk's eclectic Caribbean-style, locally sourced food is surprisingly contemporary. And delicious. You can order a four-course meal (soup, salad, entree, and dessert) from the prix fixe menu or order a la carte). The menu changes daily, but the entree might be lobster, fresh fish, or ribs, all presented creatively and with interesting sauces. The restaurant is on the beach at Parrot Cove Resort, which Rob and his wife Corrie Pronk also manage. Chef Rob says he plans to add some of his "Love on the Rocks" dishes from a second location in Hopkins. At Love on the Rocks, you cook your own food on a hot lava rock, a concept the chef introduced in Belize years ago at the Radisson Fort George Hotel restaurant in Belize City. In-season, you'll likely need reservations.
