Find a place to stay

With menus that include seared tuna, traditional island dishes like boil fish and grits and okra soup, juicy steaks, and vegetarian options, Turks and Caicos has lots to offer in the culinary department. Whether it's a quick bite of conch fritters, or a leisurely dinner of freshly caught snapper accompanied by a sunset view, you’re bound to find flavors that please your palate.

Typical dishes

 

Typical dishes include boil fish and grits in the morning and boil fish and johnnycake - a cornmeal flatbread - in the afternoon. Fresh-caught shellfish and fish are staples of island cuisine.

Grand Turk Island

 

Grand Turk spans only around 7 square miles, yet it has a high-quality selection of restaurants to choose from. At The Sand Bar, freshly caught fish is served daily, but you'll also find jerk chicken, a range of salads, and juicy burgers on the menu. Wash it down with rum punch while watching the sunset and you’ll have a recipe for a great evening. Head to Coral Cafe for breakfast choices of fresh-baked bread, pastries, eggs, and bagels.

Providenciales

 

Providenciales, Turks and Caicos’ most populated island, has an upbeat culinary scene with restaurants, cafés, and bistros that run the full gamut of flavors. At Coco Bistro, where the tables are set amid coconut palms, you can dig into local grilled wahoo or homemade ravioli. For something more casual, head to Kalooki’s, a fun restaurant bar with BBQ ribs, fish tacos, jerk chicken, and live music and a limbo competition every week.

Eating on Salt Cay

 

This small island just south of Grand Turk has only a few restaurants, but they include one of the best on the islands. Porter’s Island Thyme blends local and international cuisine for delicious dishes that include Asian tapas, curried snapper, and French toast soaked in coconut rum. Reservations are a must. For hearty portions of fresh-caught fish, or just to sip a coffee at the only seaside café on the island, head to Coral Reef Bar & Grill. They also have rib dinners on Sundays.

 

 

North Caicos

 

North Caicos offers a mélange of Caribbean and American food, with a smattering of international dishes thrown in. At Miss B’s Restaurant - where you’ll likely be greeted by Miss B herself - you'll get home cooking and Caribbean bites. Conch fritters, curried chicken and rice, and burgers are some of the offerings on the menu. If you want a romantic but relaxed setting, try Silver Palm Restaurant. Homemade bread, sweet potato fries, lobster, and grouper are some favorites in a dining space known for making guests feel at home.
