Callaloo Restaurant has Closed its Doors. A great loss. I’ll update if and when they reopen.
Go to Callaloo Restaurant was the reply from the gentleman sitting next to us on the Osprey Ferry when I asked about good Carriacou restaurants.
When I walked into the Carriacou Tourist Information Center I asked the same question, and I got the same answer … Callaloo Restaurant.
And finally when I askedour friendly Carriacou Tour Guide Norbert about Callaloo Restaurant he too agreed that it’s a great choice.
So Norbet dropped us off in front of Callaloo Restaurant, and when we walked in we were greeted by an inviting ambiance.
Before we asked to be seated, I decide to see if they would pass my sanitation test.
A good rule of thumb for any restaurant is this:
If the restroom is clean and pleasing to you, then most likely you can expect similar standards in the kitchen.
The Mens Restroom at Callaloo Restaurant exceeded my expectations.
The Beach View
They weren’t kidding when the named the restaurant Callaloo by The Sea it sits right on a beautiful strip of Carriacou white sand beach. We of course sat on the patio to take advantage of the amazing view, listen to the waves, and just relax in this Carriacou restaurant.
Look at the view of this Carriacou Beach from Callaloo Restaurant
The lunch menu was quite affordable even including the (10% service charge and a standard 8% government charge), and it looked great. Here are a couple things on the menu
- Callaloo Soup (but of course)
- Fish Fingers
- Spiced Wing Ding: chicken wings in homemade hot spicy fruity ding sauce
- Fish (Chicken or Lambie (Conch) ) Grenadine Lunch
- Fish (Chicken or Lambie (Conch) ) and Chips with salad
- And more …
Yum Yum It’s Food Time…
We skipped breakfast that morning rushing to catch the Osprey Ferry, so we were hungry and made our selections quickly.
I had the Lambie Grenadine Lunch (with potatoes)
Mia had the Fish Grenadine lunch with rice
and Ryian deciding this time to stick to her American heritage-she had the Chicken and Chips (French Fries).
The food arrived in typical Grenadian style. As you can see the salads were included on the plate right along with the rest of the food. That is very typical in Grenada and no surprise at this Carriacou Restaurant. So if you don’t like that be sure to ask your server to separate them.
Also if you do not specifically ask for the salad dressing that you want, don’t be surprise if you receive your salad with a dressing already on it. This did not happen at Callaloo Restaurant, but it’s a heads up just in case you are picky about those things.
Our food was delicious…
As you can see Mia polished off her Grenadine Fish
But Ryian was a little disappointed. We all were surprised when her chicken and chips (fries) showed up with stewed brown chicken instead of fried chicken. She enjoyed it, but really would have preferred fried chicken.
Maybe they were out of Fried chicken, and substituted it with Stewed Chicken (without asking?)… or maybe that’s the Carriacou restaurant version of Chicken and Chips … who knows?
So if you are planning to order chicken and Chips it would be a good idea to first find out how the chicken is prepared.
Two Thumbs Up??
We certainly think so. Callaloo restaurant was a good choice, and a nice experience. If it wasn’t for Paradise Beach, we might have just wind down our Carriacou Day Trip right here with a couple drinks. Plan to visit this Carriacou Restaurant when you are there, you won’t regret it.
