Dodgy Dock: Street Food Wednesday

Every Wednesday from 6.30pm, shape-shifting restaurant Dodgy Dock plays host to a selection of local street food traders. It’s the perfect place to sample an oil down – a stew of salted meat, breadfruit, coconut milk and spices, and Grenada’s national dish. Body-moving music comes from the energetic So Solid Band – assuming you’re still able to move.

Andy’s Soup House

The Alexis clan couldn’t bear to let anyone leave the island without a taste of authentic Grenadian cuisine, so they opened up this vibrant spot, ten minutes from the must-swim Grand Anse Beach, serving up bakes, saltfish and barracuda. Don’t be overwhelmed by the chalkboard list of local favourites, everything on the menu will please your belly and stir your soul.

Mt. Mortiz breakfast

A community event held on the last Sunday of every month, the Mt Moritz breakfast sees fishcakes, blood pudding, fried plantain, smoked herring and more served up and scoffed on long tables in the open air. The adventure is fitting it all on one plate (and in your belly).

Patrick’s Local Homestyle Restaurant

Love Caribbean food, but suffer from crippling indecision? At Patrick’s – the premier destination for Grenadian tapas – you can have creole fish, baked chicken, curried goat and ginger pork all in the same meal. Highly recommended for newbies to Caribbean cuisine, with plenty for veggies and vegans, too.

St. George's

Belmont Estate

Forget fast food, at Belmont’s seventeenth-century estate you can experience the benefits of slow food cooked in traditional coal pots. The attentive staff talk you through a three-course buffet featuring flavoursome creole dishes made with ingredients produced on neighbouring farms. An agri-tourism awakening that’ll make you want to migrate.
