Fodor's Expert Review Jacala Beach Restaurant

$$$ Anguilla French Fodor's Choice

On beautiful Meads Bay, this restaurant continues to receive raves, with Martha Stewart dubbing it her "new favorite Caribbean restaurant." Chef Alain (named one of the Caribbean's top 25 chefs in 2014) and maître d' Jacques (from the "old" Malliouhana) have 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 steak tartare and olive oil–poached mahimahi with curry-lemongrass sauce are entrée standouts. Lighter lunchtime options include a tart cucumber-yogurt soup garnished with piquant tomato sorbet. After lunch you can digest on the beach in a Fatboy lounger, but save room for the chocolate pot de crème.
