Fodor's Expert Review Champers
Chiryl Newman's snazzy seaside restaurant is in an old Bajan home just off the main road in Rockley. Luncheon guests—about 75% local businesspeople—enjoy repasts such as char-grilled beef salad, Champers fish pie, or fried flying fish with caper dressing. Dinner guests swoon over dishes such as the herb-crusted rack of lamb with mint and port wine jus, seared Atlantic salmon with linguine primavera, and the sautéed prawns with red Thai curry and coconut sauce. The portions are hearty and the food is well seasoned with Caribbean flavors, "just the way the locals like it," according to Newman. Dining out with the family? There's a kid's menu, too. The cliff-top setting overlooking the eastern end of Accra Beach offers diners a panoramic view of the sea and a relaxing atmosphere for daytime dining. Nearly all the artwork gracing the walls is by Barbadian artists and may be purchased through the on-site gallery.
