Fodor's Expert Review Jacala Beach Restaurant

$$$ Anguilla French Fodor's Choice

On beautiful Meads Bay, this restaurant continues to receive raves. Chef Alain has created a lovely open-air restaurant that turns out carefully prepared and nicely presented French food accompanied by good wines and personal attention. A delicious starter terrine of feta and grilled vegetables is infused with pesto. Hand-chopped Jacala steak tartare and olive oil–poached mahimahi with curry-lemongrass sauce are entrée standouts. Lighter lunchtime options include a cucumber-yogurt soup garnished with tomato sorbet. After lunch you can digest on the beach in a Fatboy lounger, but save room for dessert.
