Lunch in Grenada

We'll be stopping in Grenada for one day on a cruise in early Novmeber. We've done the island tour thing so we're just looking for a nice place to have lunch (preferably local fare). Are there any places we can walk to from the dock or take a easy taxi ride to? Thanks for your advice.

My recommendation would have been Nutmeg in St. George's, but I have no idea if it survived the hurricane. You might get better information on the grenadaexplorer.com discussion group.

Thanks RAB, I checked the site you suggested and could not find any info on Nutmeg.......it's nice to see many hotel/restaurants, etc. are open for business.......

I'm very surprised by this considering the fact that most of the island was completely ravaged by the hurricane. I have a friend who is a Dr. who volunteered is services post-hurricane and recently returned -- he said that conditions are still very, very bad.

Agree with others, check island conditions or if you find out when you arrive...ask around but the best local restaurant is/was Patrick's on Lagoon road just outside St. George's on the way to Grand Anse. Serves up some 20 local dishes for sampling...pay one price about $20 for all that. Not sure if they are open for lunch but definitely dinner. Reservations highly recommended, the place is very small.

Patrick's Homestyle Cooking will be closed until Jan 2005 - this information is from the sticky post on the forum at www.grenadaexplorer.com.

There was nothing on the post about the Nutmeg.

I am very interested in your information from when you return from Grenada. I am going there January 4-6. Haven't found a hotel yet. Did you see any open for business and if so which ones? Also interested in general conditions of island. Thanks!

I am so sorry I did not reply when I returned....as luck would have it...both my husband and I got the stomach virus and were unable to venture off the ship in Grenada....however....all you could see were blue tarps covering the roofs...actually I didn't hear of anyone leaving the ship....most of the shops looked closed.

Sorry I did not report sooner.
