The Vincy Experience.
You are always guaranteed fresh ingredients when dining out in St. Vincent. Market fresh fruit and vegetables, along with fresh-off-the-boat seafood specialties are the order of the day! St. Vincent sports an eclectic range of dining options – you’ll find everything from the modest roadside rum shops to delightful cafés and wine bars, from seaside to countryside, from casual to elegant, from quiet romance to lively entertainment, from quick snack to lavish buffet, from tasty local fare cuisine with international flair, St. Vincent offers quite a diverse selection of restaurant from which to choose, including fast food chains like Subway, KFC and even Pizza Hut.
Along the Villa and Indian Bay strip is a delightful amalgam of local and international restaurants. A number of hotels feature live weekly entertainment with local street bands and string bands. You would be wise to check with the venue before hand for up-to-date information. You can also check the SVG Hotel & Tourism Association’s weekly What’s On calendar - an excellent source of up-to-date information on local event and activities.
Do not miss out on trying the typical dishes including callaloo (a spinach-like vegetable and savory pumpkin soup); salt fish and rotis (curried vegetables, potatoes, and meat wrapped in a flour tortilla) are a national passion (although simple and light snacks) and are on offer everywhere. Instead of French Fries, when given the option, we strongly recommend breadfruit.
