Enjoying Mahi Mahi with friends at True Blue Restaurant
True Blue Bay provides the elegant “touristy” environment for folks from the metropolitan world and also the “back home” allure for Caribbean natives. It is, in a nutshell, the essence of paradise. I enjoyed a leisurely luncheon in the True Blue Bay Restaurant along with some friends on a balmy Friday afternoon. Arriving after 1:30, we occupied one of the 20+ empty tables and shared the patio dining area with only eight other diners as we overlooked the water and the picturesque hills in the distance.
The food options were varied with a discernible bias towards fish and seafood. We all selected fish (the catch of the day was either king fish or Mahi Mahi), and our table chose broiled over the other options of fried or grilled.
My broiled fish was excellent! It was delicately spiced with a butter sauce and served with rice and local vegetable. The service was efficient; and the prices were reasonable. Lunch and cocktail beverages for four cost approximately $55 US.
The gentle breeze from the sea lent a tranquil effervescence to the atmosphere, and the gentle splash of the waves reinforced the aura of paradise. The experience was truly Grenada at its natural best. My only problem was the nuisance of some pesky birds…but for most normal folks that would be an environmental enhancement…but I hate birds!
