Grenada smells fabulous. The Spice Isle, as it’s known, has a long history of nutmeg production and the scent still hangs heavy in the air. Bring a big appetite when you come to this southern Caribbean holiday favourite – it’s an island that delivers on flavour in a big way.

From elegant resort dining to simple shack lunches, whatever your taste buds fancy you’ll find somewhere to satisfy in Grenada. Don’t know where to start? We’ve rounded up the best places to eat in the island nation.

BB's Crabback

Restaurant, Caribbean, $$$
Map View

We have talented British-Grenadian chef BB to thank for this informal spot with its breezy roof terrace overlooking the Carenage – the buzzy waterfront promenade in the capital St George’s. Tourists and islanders flock in droves for his crab back, an essential taste of the island. In his family-run kitchen he also whips up takes on Caribbean and Grenadian specialities, such as curried goat, pumpkin fritters and fried plantain, all named after his relatives. If you’re getting a deja-vu, it could be because BB hosted Ainsley Harriott’s Caribbean Kitchen in 2019.

Andy's Soup House

Restaurant, Caribbean
Map View

Small but perfectly formed, this roadside joint serves no-frills food in no-fuss surrounds of primary colours and basic furnishings. From breakfast to dinner, everyone’s happy. Expect Grenada’s national dish “oil down”: a flavoursome one-pot stew combining callaloo, breadfruit, chicken, pimento peppers, coconut milk and turmeric. Also hugely popular are spicy curry, stews and roti. There’s no standing on ceremony – order at the hatch and wait for your freshly made food to be brought out. It’s fast, efficient, tasty and cheap – and the food speaks for itself.

Romantically enough, the thatched-roof open-air restaurant at the fashionable La Luna hotel sits right by the beach. With a great menu that weaves together Italian and Caribbean influences, there are some excellent results – look out for favourites like seafood spaghetti, crab risotto, salt fish, octopus salad and, if you’ve still got room, panna cotta and tiramisu. With a wine list that’s nearly entirely Italian, this exclusive spot, with room for 36 diners, offers an unobstructed view of the bay.

Named after the late British chef Gary Rhodes, who once owned and operated this place, this fine-dining favourite is all about first-class service and outstanding design – with prices to match. It’s dinner-only and the best evenings kick off in the Piano Lounge, with a glass of something crisp and cold and the tinkle of ivories. Reckon on being among couples celebrating special celebrations as you dine on buttered mahi-mahi and lobster gnocchi, overlooking the harbour – down-on-one-knee proposals are not unknown.

Patrick’s Local Homestyle Cooking Restaurant

Nobody’s disputing Patrick’s claim to be Grenada’s original tapas restaurant – after all, this place has been turning out inventive dishes for 30 years now. You’ll spot it just across the road from the Port Louis Marina, with its unassuming looks it could be a regular harbourside home. Step in and the low-key ambience continues, although the menu is certainly a pulse-raiser. From veggie burgers to gingered pork and, to finish, a portion of fruity “nice” cream, the fare here is hearty and delicious.

The Aquarium on Magazine Beach

Restaurant, Seafood, $$$

What name could be more apt for a beachfront restaurant specialising in seafood? This is a stylish affair, built into a cliff and boasting some of the best views of Magazine Beach. La Sirena Beach Bar, part of the set-up, sends brightly coloured cocktails out to guests under the shade of palm trees. In the modern, airy restaurant, immersed in tropical gardens with waterfalls and koi ponds, the house speciality – Aquarium Medley – includes lobster, jumbo shrimp, scallops and fish and is perfect for sharing. On Sunday the all-day BBQ cooks up appetising dishes such as jerk chicken breast and baby back ribs to the sounds of live reggae.

From $108 per night per room

On a quiet beach edged with mangroves is one of Grenada’s most secluded, romantic restaurants. It’s part of a simple, stylish boutique resort, La Sagesse: a former colonial manor house at the end of a quiet, palmy beach where you’ll only encounter visitors from nearby villages and hikers ambling by. The Beach Restaurant is a funky canteen-style, open-air affair, where your shoes-off dinner might be lobster tail, fish and chips, or vegetable-tofu coconut curry. Be here in time for happy-hour rum punches from 5pm to 7pm.

Boho’s

Restaurant, Tapas
Map View

An upbeat recent arrival to the St George’s dining scene – this spot is tops for tapas and finger food. The choice is wide and varied. You might opt for the lobster slider, ginger chicken or house-made ravioli with pumpkin and local plantains – the menu changes daily. There’s also a well-stocked bar that pulls in parched sightseers from the streets of the capital. The location is a dream, overlooking BBC Beach (officially Morne Rouge), the multicoloured Adirondack chairs on the terrace are cool – and there’s even a private dock if you want to arrive by dinghy.

Paradise Beach Club

Restaurant, Fusion
Map View

It’s not strictly on Grenada -–Paradise Beach Club is on its nearby island dependency, Carriacou – but you’ll be a hero if you bring your family and/or friends sailing to this all-day stalwart, run by local legend Allison. It’s right on the white sands and does dining with flair and class: expect comfortable seating, tablecloths, napkins and silverware. Dishes span the spectrum from sushi to pizza, blackened tuna to chicken carbonara. Don’t stress if you have a picky pasta-only kid in tow. The staff here bend over backwards to help and it’s all reasonably priced, whilst the portions are more than generous.
