There’s a ton of great places to eat in Providenciales. Most of the restaurants are easy to walk to from the collection of resorts along Grace Bay Beach, and boast award-winning menus. Most of the food the restaurants serve here center around seafood, although I did see some steak dishes. Keep in mind when finding somewhere to eat that you have to make a reservation at most restaurants, unless you arrive before or after the dinner rush. My family didn’t make a reservation at any of the restaurants we went to, but we were in Turks and Caicos at one of their least busiest times.
Lunch and Dinner
CoCo Bistro- This had to have been one of the best meals I’ve ever had in my life, and one of the coolest places I’ve dined at. The restaurant is open-air seating, the only shelter overhead being the numerous palm trees growing in and around the restaurant. I recommend getting the blackened mahi with jasmine rice. Also, keep a lookout for the restaurant cat named CoCo.
Pelican Bay- I also had a great meal here. This restaurant was in the middle of the resort I was staying at, the Royal West Indies (I could see it from my room). Just make sure to specify whether you want the lunch or dinner menu, both menus have different things on them. I ordered one of the appetizers, scallop risotto, but it was the same size as a regular meal. They also serve breakfast.
Big Al’s Island Grill- If you’re craving a good hamburger, this is the place to go. It’s located in the Salt Mills. I recommend trying the sweet potato fries. They were terrific. It’s not too expensive, compared to the other restaurants.
The Patty Place- They serve fantastic ice cream cones and empanadas, however I only tried the ice cream. Even a small cone had a ton of ice cream piled on top.
Caicos Bakery- This European/French bakery had some of the best doughnuts I’ve ever tried. They also serve a variety of other baked goods and you can buy bread by the loaf.
Other Places to Check Out
Some other places that I heard were really good but didn’t get a chance to try myself were Seven, Caravel, Seaside Café, Giggles, and Caicos Café.
