  • Punj-abi

    Point Salines, Grenada

    Punj-abi is a surprising blend of the best Caribbean cuisine with the myriad flavors of northern India. Located near the airport on Grenada's southwestern tip, Punj-abi is convenient when you first arrive or just before you leave the island - but give yourself plenty of time to enjoy their relaxed atmosphere, excellent service, and great menu.

  • Dexter's Restaurant

    Dexter's Restaurant
    Grand Anse, Grenada

    Chef/owner Dexter refined his craft on the QE2 and at a big resort, but he wanted to share his passion for food with guests in a more intimate setting. The result is Dexter's, a five-course dinner served on an upper patio with a sunset view near the southern tip of Grenada. It doesn't get better than this.

    Which is better - the food or the view?
