There’s a wide assortment of quality dining options in Providenciales to suit all needs and tastes, from the laid-back casual waterfront patios to exquisite fine dining experiences.
One of our favorite informal Turks and Caicos restaurants is Tiki Hut at Turtle Cove Marina. It’s got a funky island feel, good food, and nice atmosphere right on the water. (Try to hit Chicken & Ribs night on Wednesday nights… it’s a Provo tradition!)
Another favorite Turks and Caicos restaurant is Mango Reef at the Alexandra Resort. We've never been disappointed at Mango Reef, the food is consistantly good no matter what we order. Seafood, steak, veggies, all are prepared with fresh ingrediants and a delicious twist.
At Caicos Café, the drinks are great, the bartender Jermaine is fun, and it’s a good restaurant to sample some local Caribbean cuisine with a European touch. Their excellent seafood jambalaya is out of this world!
Bay Bistro at the Sibonne Hotel is one of the best moderately priced restaurants on the island. You may have your best meal here… we did last time we went!
Coco Bistro is very nice for a romantic evening under the coconut palms and twinkling lights. Another wonderful setting can be found at Magnolia Wine Bar and Restaurant at the Miramar Resort, with an incredible view of Turtle Cove Marina. Or meet for drinks by the ocean at the elegant Anacaona, at Grace Bay Club.
Go to Hemingway’s at the Sands Resort for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s a great beachfront location, and very reasonably priced… one of the most popular restaurants on Grace Bay.
If you're feeling a little adventurous, don’t leave Providenciales without visiting perhaps the most famous restaurant on Turks and Caicos… Da Conch Shack (formerly Boogaloo's). It's an open air structure right on the ocean. Make no mistake about it, you're not in the resort area anymore. But if you're OK with casual island dining off the beaten path, beat a path to Da Conch Shack and you'll be rewarded with the best conch dishes in the Turks & Caicos Islands. It's one of those laid back restaurants where you really feel like you're in the Caribbean!
Las Brisas in Chalk Sound is less than a mile away from Sunset Point Oceanfront Villa, is moderately priced and features a wonderful view of Challk Sound with its stunning turquoise water. Go for the food AND the atmosphere! Las Brisas is rated on Tripadvisor as one of the top restaurants on Turks & Caicos, and Chalk Sound was voted by Tripadvisor travelers as the #3 attraction in Providenciales!
We'd say that Bella Luna Ristorante has some of the best Italian food in the Caribbean, but since when does anyone go to a restaurant in the Caribbean for Italian food? Maybe now they will!
Located on the beach in Blue Hills next to Da Conch Shack, Horse Eye Jack's is right out of a Jimmy Buffett song. Prices are reasonable and the food is good. Get the sampler platter.
Yoshi's, Providenciales' only Japanese restaurant (other than the one at Beaches resort) is a definite winner. Located across from the Regent shops in Salt Mills Plaza at Grace Bay, we've eaten some of the best sushi we've ever had at Yoshi's. They serve it on a big wooden boat, and once you try it, you'll know your ship has come in!
Favorite places for drinks:
Anacaona – Grace Bay Club's upscale restaurant. Sip exotic island cocktails and relax on plush couches overlooking the ocean
The Deck at Seven Stars Resort - Lots of comfortable outdoor seating and great ocean views
Bagatelle at Gavenoot - At night this modern, high-end resort is a quiet, romantic place for a cocktail or two.
Vino Tiempo - Nice, comfortable wine bar located at the Regent shops in Grace Bay
Horse Eye Jack's and Da Conch Shack – Located right next to each other in Blue Hills, these informal beach bars are just plain fun!
Magnolia Wine Bar – Fantastic view of Turtle Cove
Danny Buoys – If you're looking for a pub atmosphere, late night food and drinks, and yes, even karaoke. Can get smoky, but a popular, neat little pub.
