Turks and Caicos food plates Popular Turks and Caicos dishes from Mangrove Bay Restaurant.

However, this restaurant serves some of the best local-style whole fresh fish on the island. The menu is a combination of basic burgers and fried food (which isn’t what makes the place special) and fresh local seafood. The seafood choices almost always include whole snappers and conch, and often lobster and filleted grouper as well.

Fish can be cooked in several Caribbean styles, and guests can choose between fried, steamed Creole style, blackened, and grilled. A choice from several sides is offered to complement the seafood, and often includes plain rice, peas n’ rice, lobster rice, coleslaw, baked mac n’ cheese, steamed vegetables, fried plantain, and more.

Mangrove Bay is waterfront on Cheshire Hall Creek, which is a tidal creek that is connected to the Caicos Banks. Birdlife can often be seen in the shallows and mangroves, and the aircraft departing the Providenciales International Airport is another sight. Due to its location, the restaurant doesn’t see the crowds that some of the better-known island cuisine restaurants may have.
