1 Best Restaurant in Mustique, St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Basil's Bar


Basil's is the place to be—only partly because it's just about the only place to be in Mustique. Basil Charles's landmark property, reimagined by designer Philippe Starck in 2018, is still mainly a wooden deck perched on bamboo stilts over the waves; there's a thatched roof, a congenial bar, and a dance floor that's open to the stars—in every sense. You never know what celebrity may show up at the next table. The food is simple and good—mostly seafood (line-caught and sustainably fished), house-made ice cream, burgers, flatbread pizzas, and salads, along with the usual cocktails and bar snacks. Wednesday is Jump Up & Barbecue Night, with live music; Sunday, enjoy cocktails and jazz as the sun goes down.
