During our one-week stay in May 2001 on Anguilla, we enjoyed many of the local restaurants, some were your local or not well known by the tourists and some were your tourist places.
For excellent food, a great evening and the best service go to The Overlook in South Hill.
Deon Thomas is the Chef-Owner and Ambrose (sp) was our Host and waitperson. We had the best Buffalo (VERY HOT) style Calamari for an appetizer. The Garlic Crusted Snapper and Mahi, Mahi was fantastic. We ended our week stay here and wish we went their almost every evening. Chocolate Rum Cake Desert was fantastic. Try for a table by the window for a great view and very Romantic setting. $ 140./couple. This was our favorite.
Barrel Stay in Sandy Ground. Great food and good service. Kind of a local place.
Their Vietnamese Flavored Grill Fish was Great and the Shrimp Scampi was great.
$ 100/couple no desert, beer/wine glass. Bob Mazza owner for 21 years is from the NY area.
Roys was a disappointment. We have been there before and had great food. My Snapper was supposed to be their Cajun Style but it had no flavor and my wife's shrimp was just so, so. Service was fair to poor. Everyone raves about their fish and chips. $70./couple
Hibernia in Island Harbour - Had Great Food, but we made the mistake of going there lunch time and the menu/prices are the same. Go there for dinner stay away from there lunch time. Lunch $ 50/person.
The Palm Court at Cinnamon Reef another favorite of ours for food and service Arnel(sp) was our host/waitperson and the hotel's concierge, one of the best personalities around. Jamie is the chef. Great Place for Lobster. Try for a table by the window for a great view and very Romantic. $ 140./couple. Worth the drive down their road.
Old House on George Hill was good for lunch, great lobster salad. Local place. $43./couple.
Ripples in Sandy Ground for lunch - Great Salads. We miss her Lobster Fritters, Good Dinners also.
Blanchard's it is a Tourist Place but the food was great and service was good. Snapper was great and their spicy shrimp was spicy. Great Flavor. Dinner $ 150./couple 1 - glass wine, 1 desert.
Santorini at CuisinArt Resort. Service was good, food was also good. Great Chocolate Desert. Their poolside café has great food and good service.
Tastees Café on the main drag. Great Breakfast - local place. However, watch out - Our food Cost $ 14.00. Coffee was $ 10.00 or $ 24.00 total. I think we paid a tourist coffee surcharge…
Places we would have like to go if we had the time or for our next trip out there.
Le Beach on Shoal Bay - Great Place to have lunch on the beach.
We heard good things about Smokey's at the Cove and Top of the Palms at La Sirena. Trattoria Tramonto - old Paradise Cove in Shoal Bay West - Great Northern Italian Food. Straw Hat also is good if you want a Tourist Place.
Notes: Dinner prices unless noted included appetizer, bottle of wine and desert. Call the restaurant to verify they have Lobster and Crayfish it has been very Limited
