North Caicos & Middle Caicos Restaurants & Dining

Due to their limited population, North Caicos and Middle Caicos do not have large number of restaurants, regardless of this fact, some of the country’s best dishes can be had on these two islands.

Authentic Island Cuisine

The Turks and Caicos has had an interesting culinary past, and our dishes today reflect the bygone industries and hardships of the islands.

To eke out an existence on small and dry tropical islands wasn’t easy, and fishing, farming and imports had to be assembled to put meals on the table.

One of the favorite dishes of the past and today is pan-poached fish, peas and rice, and a side of greens salad. Local corn and maize would be ground for grits and rice (before the commonality of international trade allowed for rice imports) or cornbread journey cakes.

Like so many other cases throughout the world, dishes that formed through necessity have developed and become appreciated in their own right.

Fresh Seafood and Vegetables

As the Garden Islands of the Turks and Caicos, North Caicos and Middle Caicos serve some of the freshest food available in the country. The seafood is freshly-caught and typically served the same day, and vegetables, fruits and greens are raised on local farm patches or at the Government Farm.

When the fishing seasons are open, there’s a wide selection of seafood to choose from, including Nassau grouper, red snapper, mutton snapper pot snapper, yellowtail, spiny lobster and of course conch.

On land, tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, squash, beans and maize are the vegetables raised, and papayas, key limes, sugar apples and bananas sweeten the menu.
