dining in anguilla

So..........my husband and I are "foodies" and wine lovers. Are there any "exceptional" restaurants we should know about on Anguilla?

Dining in Anguilla is quite remarkable, so you'll hardly go wrong. When we visited earlier this year, our best "fine dining" experience was at Veya, at Sandy Ground (but we also had great dinners at the Barrelstay, Deon's Overlook, Zara's and Kuyah). But my FAVORITE dining experience was the polar opposite of "fine," at Palm Grove on Savannah Bay. Here, you place your order, go to the beach for an hour or so, and then have lunch -- I had whole grilled snapper, which still has me thinking about licking my fingers and dipping a johnnycake in the garlic-flavored juices. Mmmmm!

Anguilla has over 80 restaurants and the topic of where to eat comes up rat least once a week on this forum. Type in "Anguilla Restaurants" in the search box and you'll find hundreds of posts telling you everything you could possibly want to know about dining on Anguilla.

Try the following:

Trottaria Tremondo (sp?)
Barrel Stay
Koal Keel
Silly cay

There are many, many more - your only option is to stay longer or make several trips if you want to try them all.

The food is wonderful and, IMHO, the most memorable experience on the island year after year is Hibernia -- check out the menu at www.hiberniarestaurant.com

A very special place (great wine list)!

we LOVED Blanchards, Pimms at Cap and Zurra. We didn't try veya, but our friends did this year and loved it.

People rave about Trattoria Tramonto, but we didn't have a memorable experience there. same goes for mango's, but those same friends had a great meal this year.

next time we go, we want to try tasty's for lunch and maybe hibernia or straw hat for dinner. Picante also gets rave reviews.

Try to get a copy of "A Trip To The Beach" by Melinda Blanchard before you go or take it with you. It is the story of how they started "Blanchard's" and the things that happened along the way. A very good read.

Zara's was fantastic, but closed in July(chef goes to Hamptons). Overlook also closed(chef in Marthas Vineyard). That still leaves Palm Grove(best ribs and johnny cakes), Veya, Bananas, Picante, Koal Keel, E's Oven, Oliver's, Straw Hat, Caprice, Pimms, Kemia.

Veya is a great restaurant with a tasting menu and wine pairings. It's always on my husband's list. Last trip we also did the Wine Tasting at Cuisinart before going out to dinner one night. Also, Cap Juluca and Malliouhana occasionally have Wine Dinners so it's worth it to check with them. I've heard great things about the ones at Cap Juluca. I'd add Blanchards and Mangos to the Foodie list, as well as Hibernia if you don't mind driving to the East end of the island. Koal Keel is interesting. And if Altamer reopens, put it on the list.
