Caribbean cuisine is well known for its appetizing diversity, fusing African, Creole, Cajun and European flavors with local spices, fragrant herbs and fresh-caught fish. The result is a vibrant smorgasbord of dishes with distinctive twists from island to island. But there’s more to a meal than the food itself; the setting also plays a key role in your overall enjoyment. Here we highlight six unique dining experiences that brilliantly blend high cuisine with incredible surroundings.

PIZZA PI

CHRISTMAS COVE, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS

The best pizza in the islands is found on the Caribbean’s only food boat. Docked in Christmas Cove, a protected bay accessible only by boat, Pizza Pi has been serving up fresh New York-style pizza since 2014. After snorkeling with reef fish and turtles, order up one of their unique pies, such as the Blumin’ Onion (lemon aioli with mozzarella, radicchio, leeks and a honey drizzle) or the Georgia Peacharia (mozzarella, peaches, basil, feta and a balsamic drizzle).

MISS T’S KITCHEN

MISS T’S KITCHEN OCHO RIOS, JAMAICA

The first thing you’ll notice about Miss T’s Kitchen is the colors. Basically just a roof held up by tree-like posts, the dining area is an explosion of bright colors, where every table and chair are unique pieces of art. The food celebrates the soul and culture of Jamaica through and through, though some house specialties — namely oxtail stew and goat curry in a roti wrap — keep the locals returning time and time again.

JADE MOUNTAIN CLUB

JADE MOUNTAIN CLUB SOUFRIERE, ST. LUCIA

In the Caribbean, where you often find amazing views in every direction, the view from the Jade Mountain Club might be the finest of them all. Wrapped around an infinity pool, the restaurant serves
modern fusion with a tropical twist, which you can enjoy while gazing across Soufriere Bay to the stunning Pitons. The marriage
of this breathtaking view with the cuisine by James Beard Awardwinning Chef Allen Susser is as blissful as they come.

L’OBSERVATOIRE

MOUNT BOUTILLIERS, HAITI

Many of the Caribbean’s finest restaurants are set on the coast, giving guests sweeping ocean views. L’Observatoire went for a different approach. Perched more than 3,000 feet high on Haiti’s Mount Boutilliers, this restaurant offers stunning views of Port-au-Prince, the harbor and the islands beyond. The quality of the food may not compare with the view, though many swear by its take on pain patate, a traditional Haitian dessert made from sweet potatoes and rum-drenched raisins.

SHEER ROCKS

SHEER ROCKS ST. JOHN’S, ANTIGUA

Location, location, location. Not only is Sheer Rocks set atop a rocky cliff, in the center of Antigua’s gorgeous west coast, surrounded by lush greenery, but it also faces west, making it one of the best places on the island to watch the sunset. The food is just as fabulous as the view with a menu that supports local farmers, fishermen and artisan food producers. Even their seafood is carefully selected, , with chefs choosing only to use fresh, line-caught fish and hand-dived lobster.

YOUR CRUISE SHIP

YOUR CRUISE SHIP THE CARIBBEAN SEA
