Top Restaurants in St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Basil's Bar and Restaurant (Kingstown)

Owned by Basil Charles, the same proprietor of the renowned Basil's Bar on Mustique, Basil's Bar and Restaurant is a happening Kingstown (St. Vincent) spot for lunch and dinner. Located next to the Cobblestone Inn, the restaurant's interior is marked by high-reaching arches and rough-hewn stone. Tourists and locals alike gather for the daily lunch buffet or choose from à la carte menu items like burgers, BBQ chicken, or casual seafood platters. Dinner specials include more sophisticated seafood entrees and traditional Continental cuisine like filet mignon.

Basil's Bar and Restaurant (Mustique)

For over 30 years, Basil's Bar and Restaurant has dished out succulent burgers and superior seafood to practically every mogel, model, and rock star (and everyone in between) to pass through Mustique. Aside from the fantastic food, this Caribbean mainstay draws the crowds with plenty of atmosphere, including a deck-side setting that juts out over the sea, complete with an open-air dance floor (music is provided by Basil's house band or a DJ - Wednesdays boasts the popular "Jump Up" event with live reggae music). A boutique on the premises, selling beachwear and clothing imported from Bali and India, rounds out the offerings.

Driftwood

Located on St. Vincent's Villa Beach (about a 10-minute drive from Kingstown), Driftwood offers a selection of Mediterranean dishes with a Caribbean flair. Named for the mass of driftwood that serves as the centerpiece of the outdoor dining area, each table in this seaside setting is trimmed with romantic hurricane lamps and blue paisley bandannas (they double as napkins). Menu selections include pastas and fish dishes, as well as the popular variations of personal pizzas, from the classic margherita to jerk chicken and pineapple.
