This post compiles reviews from other websites, traveler feedback and our personal dining experiences so apologies if it’s a bit biased.  While we’d love to speak about every restaurant in Turks and Caicos as so many are memorable and deserving, we’re going to focus on our 10 favorite restaurants in the area.  Here is our list and they are not ranked, simply included.

Coco Bistro

Coco Bistro: $$$$ Located in the heart of Grace Bay is everyone’s perennial favorite restaurant where Chef Stuart Gray creates a Caribbean culinary experience unlike all others.  Reservations are a must and should be booked in advance of your arrival in Provo.  The focus here is fresh, local ingredients creating vibrant local dishes including fish, lobster and lamb.  This menu has something for everyone!

Distance: 3 miles from Coral Gardens and a 10 minute drive

Magnolia

Magnolia Restaurant & Wine Bar: $$$$ Magnolia sits high above Turtle Cove Marina offering great sunset views for that romantic dinner with your loved one.  Chef Carmen’s dishes range from European to Asian utilizing fresh tuna, New Zealand rack of lamb and local lobster tails.  The sesame crusted, seared tuna has always been our favorite but you should come and decide for yourself.  Magnolia also offers an extensive wine list if your celebrating a special occasion.

Distance: 1.5 miles from Coral Gardens, just a 5 minute drive

da Conch Shack

da Conch Shack: $$-$$$  Don’t be fooled by the name, da Conch Shack is a sizable brightly painted restaurant and bar on the water’s edge in the Blue Hills Beach area.  Think picnic tables, swaying palm trees, sand between your toes along with tasty seafood and strong cocktails.  On Sunday afternoons they feature reggae DJ’s creating that perfect chill vibe every vacation requires.

Distance: About 5 miles drive from Coral Gardens and will take you 15 minutes to drive

Somewhere

Somewhere Cafe and Lounge: $$ We might be showing a bit of bias here but Somewhere Cafe will always be close to our heart, aside from convenience given it is on the grounds of Coral Gardens.  But we challenge you to find a more relaxing, vivid sunset in all of Grace Bay while the live music soothes your soul..  Enjoy fresh Tex-Mex favorites while sipping on a local beer or blended cocktail.  Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner from 8:30am til 11:30pm.

Distance: Between 10-50 steps from your front door

Cocovan

Cocovan: $$  Wait, you put a food truck on a Top 10 list?  Yes, it is that good!  Cocovan is casual dining experience on the grounds of Coco Bistro while being served from a stylish Airstream trailer.  Our favorites include Peking duck tacos, mac/cheese balls, and lamb sliders.  There is a full bar staffed by talented bartenders and a great wine list.  This is truly a “Don’t Miss” during your stay in Grace Bay.

Distance: 3 miles from Coral Gardens and a 10 minute drive

Mr. Grouper’s

Mr. Grouper’s: $$  This place earns its spot with the food as this isn’t about a seaside view or sunset.  Mr. Grouper’s is all about fresh seafood, including: snapper, conch, lobster and of course grouper.  Your fish selection can be served grilled or fried and always includes enough sides to make sure you go home satisfied.  We hope you give Mr. Grouper’s a chance and you’ll soon feel like a ‘belonger’.

Distance: 5 minute drive and just over a mile away

Directions

Via Vento

Via Veneto: $$$  Need a break from the fish and burgers, then check out our favorite Italian restaurant in Provo, Via Veneto.  Aldo and Catherine moved from Rome to Turks and Caicos in 2009 bringing their homemade Italian specialities to our islands.  One note: pizza is ONLY served on Saturday nights so plan accordingly if the kids are craving pizza.  Otherwise, 90% of the ingredients are imported from Italy and if you close your eyes while eating you just might think you’ve been transported to Rome.

Website: http://www.viaveneto.restaurant/

Distance: 2.5 miles away from Coral Gardens and you can make the drive in 6-7 minutes

Directions

Provence

Provence: $$$  French cooking finds the perfect home at Provence.  Oh wait, they also have homemade pastas and pizzas; how can you go wrong choosing between French, Italian or both?  They offer dinner for 2 at $99 on Friday and Saturday nights which includes a bottle of house wine.  Chef Eric utilizes his knowledge of French and Italian cuisines to produce some of the best dishes on the island.  With 4.5 stars on TripAdvisor over 110 reviews, we believe Provence is a wonderful change of pace.

Distance: It’s only a 2 miles drive and it will take you 6 minutes

Directions

Mango Reef

Mango Reef: $$  This fun, brightly colored restaurant is situated in Turtle Cove and has just about everything you might want for dinner.  The menu is expansive, including the likes of: grilled whole snapper, coconut encrusted shrimp, 16 oz T-bone steak, curry dishes and even Dominican paella.  We’ve seen reef sharks swimming in the marina waters here, if you see them have the kids toss some bread in the water and watch what happens.

Website:   http://mangoreef.com/home

Distance: A 5-minute drive and you’ve covered the 1.5 mile distance

Directions

Bugaloo’s

Bugaloo’s: $$  If you want to get away from the crowds, then head to Bugaloo’s in Five Cays and enjoy a relaxing lunch/afternoon on the beach.  The appetizer menu is conch every way you could imagine served alongside hamburgers, fish burgers and fresh fish dishes.  Bugaloo’s is the epitome of relaxation and tranquility.

Website: http://bugaloostci.com/

Distance: The furthest of our favorites at 6 miles and a 20 minute drive

Directions

As you can see most restaurants in Grace Bay about 1-3 miles away from Coral Gardens and an easy drive.  We hope this list provides you some inspiration while planning your visit to Turks and Caicos.  We hope you enjoy your visit and dining adventures.

Fantastic time in Turks and Caicos ..we were 2 couples for a week at this wonderful condo with a million dollar view . Waking up and having breakfast with that wonderful view was the best. Having the beach right outside your back door was wonderful. Best location . Most relaxing trip ever! Everyone at Coral Gardens made our stay great. We had everything we needed in the condo.  Thanks for a great stay. Looking forward to visiting again.

My husband and I have traveled to many Caribbean Islands and definitely have ranked Turks and Caicos as our favorite!!! Our room at Coral Gardens was very nice and had beautiful views! The condo was also very spacious and was equipped with everything we needed. The whole entire staff was incredible and so eager to make our vacation so relaxing and fun! We had the most fun just spending time every day on the beach snorkeling, swimming and meeting so many nice people from all over the world! Somewhere Café which is right on the property was awesome! The service, food and staff was wonderful!!!

We had a very nice condo and all the services and amenities you could ever need. The staff at Coral Gardens was wonderful to us and went out of their way to make sure all our needs were met with grace.

Lovely Spacious Condo in a Idyllic Grace Bay Location
5 of 5
The Coral Gardens has the good fortune to be located directly on the best snorkeling reef in Grace Bay, and that central location on Grace Bay is just the beginning. Grace Bay is world renowned for it’s beauty for many good reasons. The warm, crystalline blue waters, the calm surf, the pristine white sands make Grace Bay a “must do” experience. In order to enjoy your stay the accommodations need to be comfortable and relaxing. This Coral Gardens condo has that in spades. The entire facility and beach area was immaculately maintained. The spacious condo was very tastefully decorated, well furnished, and equipped with every necessary item for vacation. The floor plan allowed this one bedroom to live much larger than you would expect.

Somewhere Cafe was convenient and the food and drinks were really good. The beach was fantastic!! The ocean was gorgeous. We loved having the reef right there. We went snorkeling each day and saw some amazing sea creatures. We will definitely recommend this place! And hope to be back!
