Eating Well: The Best Dining in the Caribbean

Eating Well: The Best Dining in the Caribbean

If you're used to making ugly faces at your food, then you'll be happy to know that there's a terrific Caribbean resort with dining fit for the pickiest gourmet. Thanks to The Food Channel, Martha Stewart and upscale gourmet magazines, self-professed foodies who know their way around black garlic and hen-of-the-woods mushrooms demand better dining choices while on vacation. These three hotels won our hearts and taste buds with the best resort restaurants in the Caribbean.

Every note at Casa Natalia in Los Cabos, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, is pitch perfect. From the 16 luxurious rooms with authentic, handcrafted accents to the hidden pool, this boutique hotel is an oasis that draws rave reviews. Co-owner and Chef Loic Tenoux presides over Mi Cocina, the patio restaurant graced with waterfalls, open-flame braziers and palm trees where diners are tempted by the nouvelle Euro-Mexican menu. From the signature martinis and the fried camembert with lobster to the seafood risotto and scallops with guacamole tartare, the sophisticated cuisine and discrete service make this a must-dine vacation secret.

Looking for an all-inclusive resort with fabulous restaurants? One of our favorites is Jewel Dunn's River Resort in Jamaica. The friendly staff, aka Gems, circulate daily with a new GEM, a yummy rum concoction that is positively addictive. And that's just the beginning of a tasty stay at this Caribbean resort. Dining options include six terrific restaurants that cater to picky eaters. Be sure you make reservations at The Jade Samurai and ask for Big Bubba as your teppanyaki chef. Platinum offers a more formal dining experience, but the appeal of the jerk chicken at Aquamarine and a four-cheese pizza from the brick oven at Court Jester's will bring you back here for your next vacation. And the multi-course, candle-lit dinner on the pier once each week is irresistible.

San Juan, Puerto Rico is home to one of the best resort restaurants in the Caribbean, Alfredo's at the InterContinental San Juan. Guests are treated to exquisite Italian entrees that whisk their taste buds to Italy with the perfect fettuccine Alfredo. Then there's Ruth Chris Steak House, for those who prefer a mouthwatering steak topped with butter, and Ciao Mediterranean, with a menu based on the traditions of Greece, Morocco and Spain.

If you want to dine well, each of these resorts offers the best resort restaurants in the Caribbean thanks to authentic cuisines. It just goes to prove that Caribbean resort dining is a ticket to multiple countries without the jet lag.
