5 Best restaurants in Provo (TCI)

I would love if you seasoned travelers to Provo could help me out. Traveling with HB and we will be staying on Grace Bay beach.

I would really appreciate any ideas on restaurants and where they are located and if a car or taxi is needed. Looking for good tasty food. Doesn't have to be fine dining.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

hey stella, grace bay beach is 12 miles long. your location makes a difference but generally if you want to try out restaurants you will want a car.
my personal favorite is anacona at grace bay club. its beautiful, tropical and the food is quite good. go early, get a cocktail and walk towards the beach to hang out in their outdoor living room. or take a stroll on the beach.
also at turtle cove marina i like the tiki hut and aqua bar.

Hi Stella. I agree with virginia, we also liked the Tiki Hut at Turtle Cove. Sharkbite is good too, for some casual lunch. We didn't get a chance to try Anacona, but I keep reading wonderful reviews about it.

We all agreed that Iguana was our best meal, We were travelling with our DS (16) who really enjoyed his 'veggie lasagna, BTW he's not a vegetarian!

I loved the Rack of Lamb and DH liked the curry.

Not fine dining by any means, we sat outside - $127 inc. tip for 3 entrees, 2 desserts and 2 drinks each.

Oh, and another vote for the Tiki Hut - $83 inc tip for 1 appetizer, 3 entrees and 2 drinks each.

We had a late lunch so it wasn't busy at all and the service was very good.

I totally agree with Coyoba and Anacona! They are expensive but really with the $$$. If you like conch, the restaurant at the Alexandra really knows how to cook it.

My husband and I are thinking about going to Provo in February and staying at the Royal West Indies Resort. Does anyone know if there are many restuarants (hopefully some of the ones suggested in this post) within walking distance of the resort? Thanks!

Erie03,
From RWI, Anacaona is next door, at Grace Bay Club-an easy walk. We did walk for lunch several times to Bay Bistro(Sibonne) and Hemmingways(Sands), a much longer walk but we did it and enjoyed the exercise. Turtle Cove is too far to walk to. When we went to Coral Gardens, we had shuttled to Sands that afternoon(free from GBC) and then walked the remained to CG. CG would also be quite far from RWI.Hope this helps you somewhat. Enjoy!!

Word of advice--If you are walking on the roads at night bring a flashlight. No sidewalks and few street lights. Also bring one if you are walking on the beach.
