ST VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES

Continued (page 2 of 5)

BASIL'S BAR AND RESTAURANT
Britannia Bay
Mustique
Tel: 784-488-8350

The most surprising thing about this famous bar is how modest it actually is—just a large deck on stilts overlooking the water. The appetizing menu of simple West Indian food has nourished an international crowd for years. Best experienced at twilight, with a drink in hand. Remember that staring is rude, even when superstars are involved.

L'AUBERGE DES GRENADINES
Admiralty Bay
Bequia
Tel: 784-458-3201

A burnt-orange-painted, gingerbread-fringed terrace overlooking the water makes the perfect setting for a lobster dinner. (Don't bother with the menu: Lobster, plucked live from the pool, is the essential order.) The French owner, Jacques Thevenot, takes credit for the Gallic-inflected cuisine.

THE OLD FORT
Mount Pleasant
Bequia
Tel: 784-458-3440
oldfortbequia.com

Nestled high above the palm tops in a romantic plantation house, the Old Fort serves French-Caribbean dishes beneath historic stone arches with panoramic views of half the Grenadines. The on-site farm supplies eggs and produce; fresh breads are baked on the premises, too.

LE PETIT JARDIN
Back St., Port Elizabeth
Bequia
Tel: 784-458-3318

Bequia-born chef Owen Belmar, an alumnus of the Culinary Institute of America, gave up cooking on superyachts to follow his dream of opening his own restaurant. The name is precise: French-Caribbean food is served in a gorgeous, shady little garden.

BASIL'S BAR AND RESTAURANT
Bay St.
Kingstown
Tel: 784-457-2713
Fax: 784-456.5825

Basil Charles' second-string watering hole in the capital is nothing like the original—it's indoors for a start, with A/C, stone walls, and a mahogany bar. Yachties and local movers and shakers come here to get their burger fix.

LIME N' PUB
Opposite Young Island at Villa Beach
St. Vincent
Tel: 784-458-4227

Nab a table on the cute terrace of this British-expat watering hole for prime people-watching. Order the excellent rotis, fresh lobster, or pizza, and then kick back and absorb the scene.
