Head out for a meal and you can find yourself dining on the boardwalk, on a deck overlooking the ocean, or in the midst of a tropical rain forest.

Many of our cooks and chefs have trained overseas before returning home to fuse new ideas with the best of traditional island cuisine. But you can always sample local dishes – spicy West Indian stews and soups, créole cookery and exotic vegetables such as yams, cassava and okra at beach or roadside shacks, as well as in elegant restaurants!
