My favorite place to eat in Grenada is actually not at any of the Grenada Restaurants. It’s at my Mom’s house. To me her home cooked Grenadian meals are the best. And to be honest I just had to make that point, lest I end up in the dog house on my next visit.
But since you probably won’t get a chance to try Moms Entrees, let’s talk about the next best place: Grenada Restaurants.
It’s no secret that Grenadians know good cooking. You will be hard pressed to find a Grenadian who doesn’t know their way around a kitchen. With such a demanding public to please you can bet that the food at all the Grenada Restaurants are a cut above good.
Here is a list of some of my favorite Grenada Restaurants. As I visit more of the top Grenada Restaurants this list will grow. And of course my comments about these Grenada Restaurants are a reflection of my taste and style.
Don’t agree with My List?

Best Grenada Restaurants
Aquarium Restaurant – arguably the best restaurant of all the Grenada Restaurants. Looking for a beautiful truly Caribbean beach and rain forest feel? Go to Aquarium restaurant to celebrate that special occasion, for it’s awesome Sunday beach barbecue, or for drinks at it’s Mediterranean bar. To top it off it’s right on one of the best Grenada Beaches
True Blue Restaurant and Dodgy Dock – One of the few Grenada Restaurants where you can satisfy your desire for Mexican Cuisine. And it’s the only Grenada Restaurant I know where you can eat there every night for a week and not get bored. It’s not just the Grenadian, Mexican, American cuisine, it’s also the Marina, the Music, the different nightly themes, and mix of diners
De Big Fish Restaurant – For the best darn Grilled Swordfish I ever had try this Grenada Restaurant. A casual open air atmosphere sitting on the quiet waters bay. Great place to catch up with friends and knock back a few Caribs… (If you know of a place that serves a better Grilled swordfish tell me below)
Red Crab Restaurant – Nothing extraordinary about this Grenada Restaurant. They have a great reputation… I’ve known about them since I was a kid, so they must be doing something right to be around for such a long time. Traditional menu of seafood, beef, chicken, etc and overly pricey.
Rick’s Cafe – hands down the best Ice Cream on the island, perfect place to stop off after a day on Grand Anse beach. They also serve pizza, barbecue, sandwiches, and beers. Some of the staff has been there for as long as I can remember maybe (15 or more years)
Le Chateau restaurant – Crab Back (think Crab Cakes served in the Carb’s back/shell), Callaloo and French Onion Soup, Seafood Kebab, Garlic and Creole Shrimp, are just some of the mouth watering treats you will find here. It’s in the heart of Grand Anse in Le Marquis Shopping Plaza
Bananas Restaurant – at this Grenada Hotspot you get more than just a restaurant. Include the lively bar and the famous night club it’s easy to see why many consider this Grenada’s premier hangout.
The Beach House Restaurant – great for a special occasion, it has a more upscale feel, the food is great, and the wait staff is friendly. Also check out the beach if it’s in the day.
BB’s Crabback Restaurant – A popular restaurant in the heart of St. George’s on the Carenage. Read about visitor’s rave review.
Kudos Bar & Grill – well I can’t vouch for the food here but what I can tell you is that they host one helluva Happy Hour.
Nutmeg Restaurant – A favorite among locals and visitors alike. This is one of the oldest Grenada restaurants. It’s located on the beautiful Carenage. Ask to be seated at or close to the window, for the great views of the inner harbor. Martha Stewart visited The Nutmeg on her Grenada trip. At one time they were famous for their “Chicken Snack” – Fried Chicken and Fries (chips) with coleslaw.
Laurena Hotel Restaurant – You will have to take a scenic trip up to beautiful Carriacou, in the Grenadines, the tase the delicious Red Snapper, or mouth watering Peas Soup that we had at this restaurant. Small and clean, with friendly staff it’s a great option when in Carriacou.
Restaurant at SGU Campus Grand Anse Beach – On the old St. George’s University(SGU) Campus on Grand Anse Beach there is a excellent restaurant that serves some really good Grenadian Cuisine. Nothing facny, just good food, that’s all.
Victory Bar and Grill – Lunch, afternoon snack, or drinks this great spot in the lovely Port Louis Marina can fit either occasion. We had drinks there and enjoyed it. Conveniently located between Grand Anse and St. George’s.
Creole Shak – also on the Carenage and very close to the Nutmeg restaurant. This is a cafeteria style operation that’s very popular among locals for lunch, but the line moves quickly. It’s a great place to sample many different Grenadian foods at a very reasonable price.
The biggest complain I get about Caribbean and Grenada Restaurants is that they can be too slow. At Creole Shak I was eating within 5 minutes of getting in line … not bad at all, considering the good quality and variety of food items offered. And most importantly the food was all delicious. On Friday and Saturday nights there’s also karaoke.
The Melting Pot Sports Bar & Grill – very similar to the Creole Shak. I think it’s under the same management. A great option if you are in the town of Grenville and craving some wholesome Grenadian food. The boasts French Creole Cuisine Grenadian style as their signature taste.
Gouyave Fish Friday – This one is NOT a Grenada Restaurant, but since we are talking about good places to eat, I thought we should throw it in. Gouyave Fish Fridays is an outdoor event, held every Friday in the coastal village of Gouyave.
It’s a Seafood lover dream come true. So if you are up to tasting the very best seafood Grenada has to offer, and you like hanging out with the local folks then check out Gouyave Fish Fridays.
As you can see there are tons of really good Grenada Restaurants and eateries missing from this list. The truth is I will never ever be able to try them all out.
- First I’m just one guy who visits Grenada only twice a year for at most 2 weeks at a time
- And second even when I’m in Grenada it’s tough to leave those home cooked Oil Down and Fish Broth that Moms and the boys prepare to go out to eat.
So that’s where you come in!
