This week we visit: Grenada
Grenada does not really have a budding restaurant scene that some other Caribbean destinations do, but there are still quite a few places where you can get great food at more or less reasonable prices. The following restaurants are among the best eateries on Grenada’s islands.
Even if you are totally beat from entire days spent at the beach, going diving, doing all kinds of fun stuff, you might still want to go out on the town in the evenings and the good news is that Grenada has a lot to offer. It may not be as wild as some other Caribbean destination, but it can hold its own.
One place that you have to visit is Dodgy Dock, a very informal bar/restaurant which is practically on the ocean, so to say. There are always people there, although Wednesdays are the wildest. Live music is usually on Tuesdays and every Saturday night is Romantic Night.
If you happen to find yourself on the island on a Friday, make sure to make your way to Gouyave, a fishing village on the north-west coast which puts on a street party every Friday night. Food stalls are all over the streets, the music is sometimes live, but it’s always upbeat. It’s worth taking a drive up the coast, definitely.
Bananas is near St. George’s University, and as such, it is always teaming with young people looking for fun. It has a number of features on offer – a sports bar which is real laid-back, an outside eatery and on weekends, it turns into a bona fide nightclub with live DJs and everything.
The Spice Basket is a very special place in the cultural life of Grenada, located in the village of Beaulieu, very close to St. George’s. They have shows focusing on local heritage, live music, concerts, stand-up comedy and plenty more. Make sure to check in advance so you do not miss out on something you’d like.
