Eating out in the Caribbean is always special.

Caribbean cuisine draws on every island’s unique heritage and features African, Indian, Spanish, French, Dutch, and English influences, among many others.

There really is something for everyone, with vegan and vegetarian offerings also getting better every year.

Here are five of the best fine dining restaurants in the Caribbean.

Voted the best restaurant in the region in 2021 by Caribbean Journal, Brass Boer is situated at Delfins Beach Resort and is managed by award-winning chefs Jonnie and Thérèse Boer.

Featuring dishes from the Boer’s acclaimed three-star Michelin restaurant in the Netherlands, De Librije, the menu includes oysters, duck, red snapper, and lobster, accompanied by a wide selection of local produce.

Champers – Barbados

Champers on Barbados’ south coast has a deserved reputation for excellent food and unmatched customer service.

Guests can gaze out onto the ocean (you may even see a green turtle) while enjoying sumptuous mains such as ribeye steak, shrimp curry, and tortellini stuffed with ricotta.

Lunch and dinner are à la carte, or fixed menu specials are available, like three courses for $118 (BBD).

Graycliff – The Bahamas

Located in an historic and impressive 18th century mansion, meals are served in four air-conditioned dining rooms and a garden dining area, and the dress code for lunch is casually elegant.

Food lovers will be delighted by an innovative menu that mixes Bahamian specialties with European cuisine and several secret recipes from the chef.

Screaming Eagle – Aruba

A regular fixture on the list of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, Screaming Eagle continues to impress year after year with delicious dishes and first-class service.

Seafood is their speciality, and the menu offers octopus salad, tuna tartare and salmon sashimi as appetisers. Mains include pork shank, Mahi Mahi, Caribbean lobster, and beef tenderloin.
