Food, Food and More Food at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa

We are still talking all about our great experience at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa and one of the things that we always get asked about is the food.  Let me be clear before we go any further - when visiting a Beaches Resort come with a very hungry tummy, SO MUCH FOOD!

Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort is an all-inclusive resort and boy that is true.  I have talked about it before but just to review.  At an all-inclusive resort all food, beverages, select water sports and even childcare.  You literally do not need to carry any cash with you and that is also true for tipping.  When you head to dinner, simply sit down, order, eat, enjoy the company and walk away from the table.  It feels really weird the first couple of times you do it.  

With a choice of 20 international restaurants, the hardest decision will be which to try next. I will be honest, we went to dinner and then walk to another place for an extra dessert almost every night!  SO GOOD!  And nighttime is the right time for everyone to let loose at Beaches Turks & Caicos, with 12 bars to keep the fun going all night long!

Our Top Restaurant Picks:


Le Petit Chateau

Le Petit Chateau: meaning small castle.  A popular meeting place to enjoy Parisian-inspired cuisine, elegant décor, and the finest wine selections from the world's most celebrated vineyards, Le Petit Chateau is modeled after the fascinating manor houses of the 19th century where nobles gathered and dined, this must–visit, adult-only restaurant delivers in every aspect.

This was our first dining experience while on the resort.  We dined here with our friends for dinner and enjoyed a great evening of trying new foods, sipping wine and having great conversations.

This dining experience sticks in my head for some reason, maybe the atmosphere and decor?  The food was fantastic too.  The best polenta I've ever had!  Not to mention the dessert for two was AMAZING!  


Mario's

Mario's is the only restaurant that we ate at more than once during our stay.  Mario's is a unique dining experience full of the finest Italian Cuisine.  Mario's is open for Breakfast. Lunch and Dinner.  We enjoyed breakfast one morning and the breakfast buffet was full of great options and fresh choices.  We left there ready for the day to start.

We also had lunch at Mario's after a day at the beach.  It was great to come in and enjoy the salad and antipasto bar after we ordered our entree.  The entrees for lunch were dinner size and so good!  The old world decor added to the experience and delicious Italian recipes.  



Barefoot By The Sea

The name of the restaurant says it all.  Set on the beach you instinctively remove your sandals and put your bare feet in the sand.   The view is breathtaking - the decor is simple with the cutest picnic table settings.  Open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner gives you plenty of options to stop by and enjoy a meal on the beach. The cuisine here is just as enticing as the charming, Caribbean vibe, presenting distinctive seafood recipes full of savory fervor. Lobster Bisque with Sourdough Croutons, Herb-Crusted Mahi Mahi, and Coconut-Fried Tiger Shrimp are just a few of the tantalizing options that grace Barefoot's palatable menu.

We went to Barefoot By The Sea for breakfast one morning and it was fantastic.  I had a perfectly cooked omelette full of fresh veggies.  So good!  I have to say, I would love to eat all my meals in the sand while listening to the waves of the sea.  A must visit!



Cricketer's Pub

When the boys were searching for a good beer we decided to head to Cricketer's Pub for lunch. Great choice! Cricketer's Pub‐home to rustic, saloon-like décor and lively bartenders‐is a great place to completely relax and enjoy customary pub fare. This is truly a pup with the decor you see in the states as well as board games to take to your table. Such a fun atmosphere!

Talk about a place to go to get great authentic British fare.  Jeremy went with a Shepherd's Pie dish and a beer and I had the Fish and Chips.  AMAZING!!  Both of us left ready for a nap at the beach. 


Café de Paris

Discover a Little Bit of Paris in the Caribbean with a Parisian-style Patisserie.  Enjoy pastries, crêpes, coffee and tea in a quaint little cafe in the French Village.  This is a perfect place to stop for breakfast for delicious coffee and a sweet treat or a perfect evening snack stop.

We enjoyed stopping here for a little extra treat before we would end our day.  The pastries are not only delectable but they are beautifully presented as well.  A few nights we took our treats to go and enjoyed them in our suite before bed.  What a treat that was for us!  No kids to have to share them with!  Yummy!


Neptunes

One of the perks of traveling with Social Media On The Sand is that we got a special evening out and we were assigned a certain restaurant to enjoy.  Our reservation was for Neptunes.  This is set beautifully on the beach and we happened to be dining right at sunset.  It was amazing.  

The Neptune-blessed cuisine highlights the best in Mediterranean fare, where eggplant, artichokes, squash, tomatoes, legumes, onions, mushrooms, okra, cucumbers, and herbs are used to embellish three course meals of fresh seafood such as lobster, mussels, octopus, shrimp, salmon, tuna, and more. Guests will marvel at the sweeping views, inviting, laidback atmosphere and divine desserts; but most of all, they will laud the enticing cuisine said to be touched by a god.

The food and the view was amazing and Jeremy even went way outside of his comfort zone and tried the octopus salad.  Such a great experience for us.  Our waiter was fantastic too - he explained all of the food to us and even talked to us about his personal life and where he and his family was from.  Great meal out for sure!


Kimonos

Who doesn't love having entertainment and dinner?  Kimonos is just that an elegant Asian inspired space that will have you ready for some delicious food and great fun with your table-mates.  This is a restaurant that needs a reservation so make sure you have the service desk help you get that reservation done for you!  

Kimonos boasts mouthwatering cuisine prepared by skillful chefs who entertain with tricks while cooking on an iron, flat surface grill, as guests await their exotic fare. You never know what new tricks and treats the chefs have up their sleeves, possibly juggling cooking utensils, flipping a shrimp tail into their shirt pocket, or catching a shitake mushroom in their hat. Choose from entrees that incorporate teriyaki beef, ginger-infused chicken breast, and peppery shrimp or enjoy palatable salads, soups, or beef gyozas.

If we ever bring the kids with us I know they would love these chef's.  They are so entertaining and great at their job.  My favorite part of this meal was the shrimp!  It was so flavorful and perfectly cooked.

Some other dining to mention is the Bella Napoli Pizzeria and Bobby Dee's.  The Pizzeria is perfect for the quick snacks or lunches.  One day we did not want to leave the pool so we decided to send the guys to pick up some pizzas for us to just enjoy at the pool.  Bobby Dee's has amazing milk shakes!  Seriously a must try after dinner or even for an ice cream treat while at the pool or beach!

While we certainly enjoyed all of the food we possibly could I must say we also enjoy our time at the swim up bar with our friends too.  This picture makes me smile every time I see it.  

If you are heading to Beaches Turks & Caicos I hope that you can take some of out top picks and try them for yourself.  My advice to you - try everything.  Try new things. Be adventurous and enjoy the time you have at the resort.  



Which one of these restaurants would be in your Top Picks?

  5. I love swim up bars -- they are so fun. I think I would have to choose Mario's. That pasta looks terrific. I would never have imagined that there would be such a diverse offering at one resort. Hope to visit one day!
