9 Best Restaurants to Visit in Turks and Caicos
The 9 best restaurants to visit when you travel to Turks and Caicos
Providenciales Island is full of comforting Caribbean food, fresh seafood, and beautiful scenery. Anywhere you go will either have beautiful views or you’ll be surrounded by lush tropical plants. However, food in Turks and Caicos can be quite pricey so here is a list places I enjoyed and why so you don’t waste your money!
Grace Bay | cocobistro.tc
Coco Bistro is the hardest restaurant in Turks and Caicos to get a reservation for. If you want to dine here, make sure to book a reservation weeks in advance. However if you are unable to get one, they can usually sit you at the bar/lounge area with no wait. The same food menu is available in this area as well.
I highly recommend ordering the Blackened Mahi. It is served with a Thai red curry, fried sweet plantains, mango chutney, broccoli, crispy sweet potato straws, and rice. An amazing combo of flavors and textures. It gets my vote as one of the best restaurants in Turks and Caicos and definitely lived up to the hype for me! ($$$$)
Infiniti Restaurant & Raw Bar
1 Grace Bay Circle Rd | gracebayresorts.com
Infiniti Restaurant & Raw Bar is a beautiful oceanfront restaurant at Grace Bay Club. The ambiance is amazing and they also have live music in the evenings. Perfect place to watch the sunset.
Highlights for me were the Fresh Berry Colada cocktail and Miso Black Cod. ($$$$)
Sharkbite Bar & Grill
Turtle Cove Marina | Facebook
Sharkbite was my overall favorite with the best value. It is located in a marina with tables overlooking the water. Great casual spot to grab a bite and relax with a nice meal.
Definitely get the grilled lobster if it is in season, August-April. ($$$)
Da Conch Shack
Blue Hills Rd | daconchshack.com
Da Conch Shack is one of the most popular restaurants on the island and one that I was looking forward to visiting the most. It is located on the beach with lots of palm trees to provide shade.
They serve all things conch – conch fritters, cracked conch, and conch salad. ($$$)
Mr. Grouper’s Restaurant
Lower Bight Rd | mrgrouper.com
Mr. Grouper was the most recommended restaurant to us by locals. They have beautiful plants surrounding the restaurant and a casual, relaxed atmosphere.
They serve delicious Caribbean food like jerk chicken and fresh grouper burgers. ($$)
Turtle Cove Marina | mangoreef.com
Mango Reef is another spot that was recommended to us by locals. It is located in a marina with a patio that overlooks all the boats.
I really enjoyed the super tender Caribbean oxtail and coconut shrimp here. ($$$)
Cocovan Airstream Lounge
10 Oak Avenue | cocovan.tc
Cocovan Airstream Lounge is located next to and owned by the same people as Coco Bistro! If you are unable to get a reservation over there, this spot is a great back up. It has a more casual vibe and menu with seating under the tall palm trees on picnic tables.
I recommend the Fried Chicken Sandwich and skipping the Mahi Tacos. ($$$)
Omar’s Beach Hut
Five Cays | Facebook
Omar’s Beach Hut is a beachfront restaurant serving Jamaican food and fresh seafood (next to the fish market). They have tables in the sand closer to the water too.
Super hospitable, Omar himself even came to say hi! ($$$)
Pelican Bay Restaurant & Bar
Royal West Indies Resort | pelicanbaytci.com
Pelican Bay Restaurant & Bar was our last meal in Turks and Caicos. We were starting to miss home a bit. This spot is one of the few on the island that are open early and serve an affordable classic American breakfast. ($)
We also saw that they do AYCE lobster on Wednesdays when it is in season for $75, although we did not get a chance to try.
