What to Eat in Turks & Caicos

Because the islands' restaurants rely heavily on imported food products, dining in Turks & Caicos can be expensive. Providenciales is home to a wide variety of eateries serving everything from Asian cuisine to Mexican favorites. But if you want to eat cheaply, try mom and pop restaurants and order seafood (conch in particular). Regional favorites include crispy conch fritters and creamy conch chowder. A popular place to try conch, as well as see how conch is harvested, is at the traveler-approved Da Conch Shack. Caicos Cafe is another favorite among past travelers, with many making repeat visits during their vacations for the daily fish special and roasted octopus. If you're on the hunt for traditional Caribbean dishes with a side of amazing views, plan to enjoy a meal or a sunset drink at the Flamingo Cafe.

Turks & Caicos is also home to a wealth of fine-dining restaurants. Should you need a break from the beachfront cafes, consider Le Bouchon, Coco Bistro, Seven or Kitchen 218.

If you're arriving to Turks & Caicos via cruise, keep in mind that most of the restaurants within reach of the port focus on lunch and have more of a tourist feel (Margaritaville, for example). If you're only on the island for one meal, consider dining at local favorites like Sandbar Restaurant or Jack's Shack.
