Snuggled in the heart of a coconut grove, Coco Bistro is the ultimate in al fresco dining. Book ahead to secure a spot under the natural canopy of palm trees and enjoy the fresh, flavoursome cuisine prepared from local ingredients. From lobster to lamb rack and perfect penne pasta, this relaxed yet special venue offers a mouth-watering menu paired with a vast array of fine wines. So tucked away is this haven (with its resident feline, aptly named Coco), it seems reserved for those in the know.

Sophistication and style
Pricey but perfect for romance, Grace’s Cottage is defined by its al fresco candlelit patios edged by tropical plants. Begin the evening with an indulgent cocktail, sample a starter such as spring rolls, then move on to the main event in fine dining. Go for shrimp curry, rack of lamb or freshly caught grouper, treating yourself to a heavenly chocolate soufflé for dessert if you still have room. Set in the stunning surrounds of Point Grace Resort, this is a classy venue.

Authentic ‘Cucina Italiana’ is the speciality of Via Veneto, where traditional imported Italian ingredients including olive oil form the basis of much-loved specials such as Spaghetti Carbonara and Melanzane Parmigiana. Sample fresh gnocchi with prawns, fresh salads and paninis, and finish with a creamy tiramisu or chocolate torte. Even the striking black and white décor screams Italy. Book a table on a Saturday for Pizza Night or turn up during the week for Happy Hour on a range of drinks.

Infinite yet intimate
The only gourmet oceanfront restaurant on Providenciales, the newly redesigned Infiniti’s vibrant menu of contemporary cuisine is served in the warm Caribbean air under palapa roofs and on elegant table linens. Hear the waves crash on the shore as you sample the likes of lobster tempura or seared salmon, and sit at the breath-taking 90-foot infinity bar to enjoy a chilled glass of wine under the stars.
