Turks and Caicos Caribbean Cuisine Restaurants

It should come as no surprise that Providenciales is home to many restaurants that specialize in Caribbean cuisine. Whether you’re in the mood for lobster or jerk chicken, each restaurant has their own, individualized take on island cuisine. From upscale dining to the more relaxed feel of a beachside cafe, our island offers it all, at any price point, and in any setting.

One common feature of Caribbean fare is that it can be quite simple—there’s no need to sit down and be served, but rather it can be taken on-the-go to just about anywhere. From fish fingers to conch fritters and cracked conch, plenty of island dishes don’t require silverware and make it easy to enjoy on-the-go—and you’ll find a number of restaurants throughout the islands that offer their own variations of island finger food. Meanwhile, while it’s mostly known for its Jamaican jerk dishes, Chinson’s Grill Shack is also an ideal spot to grab a quick lunch to-go, with ready-made offerings that include Jamaican patties (similar to empañadas with fillings that include beef, chicken, and vegetables) made fresh daily. Located on Leeward Highway, the restaurant also offers seating and a relaxed atmosphere that captures the true essence of island life, if you decide to sit down and eat.

On the Beach

The true island experience happens right on the beach, and there’s no shortage of beachfront restaurants in the Turks and Caicos. Bay Bistro, for example, is located right on Grace Bay Beach and offers an ideal option for events. Dine beneath the stars or inside under the fans at any time of day, with breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner all on offer, and delicious Caribbean options that include conch chowder and grilled jerk lamb. You can also head to Five Cays, where you’ll find restaurants like Bugaloo’s and Omar’s Beach Hunt, two island staples found right on the water with menus that offer a vast range of local and Caribbean cuisine.

For a more refined experience, Mango Reef offers up some of the island’s best Caribbean cuisine. Open for lunch and dinner, Mango Reef sits right on the picturesque Turtle Cove Marina, adding to its island feel. Get started with some local conch and spicy shrimp cocktail, then choose from entrées that include lobster options, local snapper, and jerk chicken. You’ll even find Dominican paella, featuring various fish and shellfish from our local waters. Mr. Grouper’s is another seafood-centric restaurant known for its local dishes and tasty options such as coconut-encrusted grouper, best served with their famous rum punch. For a more local feel, Mr. Grouper offers excellent service and Caribbean flavors. Reservations are recommended for both.

Every resort here on Providenciales offers its own dining experience, all of which also feature Caribbean cuisine in its various forms. Whether you are enjoying a local Turks Head beer at Ocean Club West, a Pain Killer at Grace Bay Club’s Infiniti Restaurant & Raw Bar, or Gully Wash at Sibonne’s Bay Bistro, each resort’s restaurant offers something specifically and uniquely Caribbean, even when it comes to their drinks. No matter where you dine, the influence of the Caribbean is close at hand.
