Let’s get into it shall we?
Dining Out in Turks and Caicos:
Providenciales has countless restaurants to choose from! From fine dining to local toes-in-the-sand fresh fish casual dining, we highly recommend the following spots..
Caicos Bakery features tasty pastries and great coffee! Its a great place to set the tone for a relaxing beach day.
The Naughty Gull
Naughty like Nautical….get it? It is located in Turtle Cove, within walking distance to many villas. It features healthy smoothies, sandwiches and coffee.
Da Conch Shack
Da Conch Shack is a local favorite. No trip to Turks is complete without enjoying a Rum Punch (or Virgin Daiquiri!) with your toes in the sand at da Conch Shack. This spot has a fun energy with great dishes featuring conch. We highly recommend spending a fun afternoon here!
Mr. Grouper’s is a TC Villas staff favorite with amazing fresh fish. I highly recommend the coconut crusted grouper! The conch fritters are also delicious.
Los Amigos is a Mexican restaurant with great pricing on margaritas. We recommend the fish tacos and guacamole!
Sunsets are the magic hour in the Caribbean; a time when the perfect activity is relaxing with a quiet drink and watching the sky turn brilliant shades of colors. There are so many great spots to catch sunsets on island, we had to pick three:
Las Brisas is located on Chalk Sound and features a full bar. The seating is spread out with beautiful views of chalk sound, which get better and better as the sun sets!
Magnolias is located in Turtle Cove on a hill. The elevated location offers patrons amazing views of the sunset. This restaurant features great specialty cocktails, steaks and seafood.
Somewhere Bar and Grill
Somewhere Bar and Grill is a beach restaurant that often features live music. They offer great appetizers, tacos and cocktails.
Coco Bistro is an island favorite with an amazing chef. The food here is tasty, but the ambience is what really sets this palm-tree filled outdoor/indoor restaurant apart. Bet sure to call well ahead of time to make reservations!
Baci Ristorante is a lovely Italian restaurant in Turtle Cove Marina. This picturesque eatery offers wonderful seafood dishes, pasta and pizza! Have a glass of wine while listening to the gentle waves of the sea!
