After the glorious weather and incredible beaches, perhaps one of the best aspects of a vacation in Turks and Caicos is enjoying some of the fabulous dining opportunities on Providenciales.
One of the best places to do that is at Asú on the Beach, a Turks and Caicos restaurant at the Alexandra Resort.
Asú means sunset in Taino, the language spoken by the Arawak Indians who lived in Turks and Caicos centuries ago. The resort offers an expansive dining terrace overlooking Grace Bay Beach; the perfect venue to greet the day, enjoy a leisurely lunch and witness a magnificent sunset. Asu also offers a beach bar, service by the pool and at the beach to resort guests, a stone baked pizza oven at Asu Pizza Deck, and barefoot dining on the beach at dinner (reservations required).
No doubt when you think of Caribbean dining, a restaurant on the beach comes to mind. We know that, and it’s why there is the Beach Deck at Beach House. Leave the sand on your toes and apply a fresh layer of sunscreen when you join us for lunch.
Order a tropical cocktail and then settle back to watch the view on the #1 ranked beach in the world while we prepare a fresh salad, succulent burger or flavourful local fish for you.
Beach Deck is open daily for lunch and by reservation only for private and oh-so-romantic dinners under the stars or special celebrations such as weddings, family reunions or corporate functions.
Fire & Ice is a delightful waterfront restaurant that offers a picturesque setting and a unique contemporary Mediterranean menu. Popular dishes include cataplana, a three course meal that is perfect for sharing with friends and family. The main course - seafood prepared in a copper pot - greets guests with an amazing aroma and a generous selection of lobster, shrimp, mussels and fresh fish.
Another popular offering is the tabletop charcoal barbecue grills. Choose from wagyu beef flank steak, New Zealand lamb cutlets, mulard duck breast, and kurobuta pork tenderloin. Combos also available. All served with grilled vegetables and unlimited homemade french fries.
The Fire Lounge offers a Caribbean atmosphere at its best. Overlooking the turquoise waters and Mangrove Cay directly adjacent to the resort, the fire pits offer a perfect spot to chill under the stars while enjoying a refreshing cocktail from the Ice Bar.
The Turks & Caicos dining scene has been introduced to a new interpretation of culinary excellence with Kitchen 218.
In keeping with the boutique hotel accommodations experience offered at Beach House, the restaurant’s décor exhibits encourages gracious service, a tranquil dining environment and a beach casual-chic atmosphere.
The open air dining terrace is located next to the picturesque swimming pool area landscaped with tropical gardens.
The dinner menu is often updated but always promises a selection of locally caught seafood, prime quality meats and beautifully presented entrees that blur the line between art and function, and always treat the taste buds.
MARKET is Blue Haven Resort’s convenient on-site grocery store and cafe. It offers a selection of fresh produce, organic ingredients and products, cheeses, ready-made food and snacks, as well as wine, beer and other beverages. MARKET sells alcoholic beverages on Sunday as well as ice.
Do some grocery shopping and then visit the cafe to buy a treat to be enjoyed on the shaded terrace overlooking the Leeward canals and Blue Haven water sports marina. The cafe serves Allegro brand teas and coffees, and prepares specialty beverages too.
MARKET is open daily from 7am – 8pm. It is located in the Boathouse at Blue Haven Resort, adjacent to Elevate Spa.
On any given sunny and breezy day, enjoy the view of the yachts in the Blue Haven Marina while soaking up the flavors of the Caribbean at the casual Salt Bar & Grill. Make an afternoon of it! Play some beach volleyball or horseshoes, catch a game on the big screen, or just bask in the warmth of the sun.
Salt Bar & Grill is open daily for lunch and dinner, and a very popular happy hour. The best burgers and fish tacos are served at Salt!
The casual bar atmosphere has become the talk of town, reminding residents of days gone by when many travelers used to arrive by boat in the Caribbean. Today, the only thing that has changed is that the boats are predominantly motor driven. What has not changed is that their occupants tell stories from all over the Caribbean about their recent marine adventures.
