One of the many benefits of living and working in the Turks and Caicos, is that we get the opportunity to enjoy your favorite spots, year-round!
As part of a new segment on our website, we will be updating you of our new favorite restaurants throughout the year. So without further ado, we bring you our top 5!
We have enjoyed Coco Bistro many times over the years and had the opportunity to go back this past New Years Eve for dinner. This place is awesome. The location is on a parcel of land in Grace Bay covered in Coconut Trees, some with spot lights shining up them while others are draped in orange rope lighting. This sets a beautiful tropical setting for dinner while you dine under the tropical palms. The food I believe to be most consistently the best on Provo. My favorite is the Rack of lamb while my wife Priscila enjoys the Tuna. This restaurant requires you to book the most ahead (roughly a month!) but never disappoints!
If you have ever been lucky enough to visit the South of France, the food and the wine leave a lasting impression on you. So, when a restaurant opens with a name like Provence and knowing that our favorite Chef on Provo is the man in the kitchen, we immediately got excited about it. This place is fantastic. It is located in the chic Le Vele Plaza in Grace Bay and is open for Lunch and Dinner daily. Chef Eric has created a new restaurant inspired by the cuisine of his home country France and infused the fresh seafood available in The Turks and Caicos. Lunch service is set up as an upscale, casual patio dining experience while the dinner service is another must do fine dining experience while visiting the islands.
This restaurant is probably the one we frequent the most. Great food and great staff. It starts with the ownership here, Aldo and Catherine bring a really cool and relaxed dining experience to Grace Bay with fresh ingredients ordered in directly from their hometown, Rome.
Via Veneto make all of their pastas and pizzas inhouse and serve on the second floor of the Ports of Call Plaza each evening. They offer great fish dishes as well with our favorite being the Filleto Di Snapper. Saturdays are pizza nights, a night of strictly pizza prepared in the brick oven imported from Italy and with a thin crust, Roman Style!
Mango Reef is located in The Turtle Cove Marina of Providenciales. They are open for lunch and dinner daily and offer a great variety of food on their menu from ribs falling off the bone with mashed potatoes to fresh fish ceviches, to Thai Green Curries. Service is fast and the atmosphere pleasant. A great and easy option that impresses the whole family.
“Da Conch Shack” has been an island favorite amongst residents and tourists for many years now. They are located in Blue Hills, on the beach. Fisherman bring in their local catch daily by boat and sell to the restaurant right on the beach. The purchased conch is placed in a pen in the ocean in front of the restaurant while the fish is brought inside to be prepared for the day.
As you order your conch, a restaurant staff will fetch a live conch out of the ocean, remove it from the shell and cook it for you to your order; cracked, fried, stewed or even raw into a conch salad!
Da Conch Shack is open for Lunch and Dinner daily.
