Seafood Restaurants in the Turks and Caicos Islands
Several times a year, seafood restaurants in the Turks and Caicos Islands celebrate the bounty of lobster. And this tasty crustacean, along with conch, features prominently in the delicious seafood specialities when dining at The Palms Turks and Caicos on gracious Grace Bay Beach.
Turks and Caicos Lobster Season
Low in fat and high in protein, lobster is a popular culinary choice. If you want to enjoy it while you’re in the Turks and Caicos, then timing is everything. Make sure you book your visit between August 1 and March 31. This is the lobster season when the delectable crustaceans can legally be caught and inventory is available to local eateries and shops. Outside of these dates, you won’t find fresh lobster on the menu.
Outdoor Dining With Sumptuous Seafood
It’s one thing to eat with a view of a pool, but to dine without having to leave the pool at all, well, that’s a unique opportunity.
The Palms Plunge Bar and Restaurant features in-water seating areas called banquettes where you can relax and enjoy your meal. Or if you prefer you can sit in the sunken dining terrace surrounded by the picturesque infinity pool and gardens.
If seafood on Providenciales is what you seek, you’ve come to the right place. But you might need a few extra moments with the menu! There’s a mouthwatering collection of Caicos conch served up here: conch fritters, conch ceviche and cracked conch. Indulge in local fish choices like the Caicos Grouper Wrap with passionfruit mayo or The Palms Fish taco with marinated Mahi Mahi. Lobster lovers will enjoy the three-tiered Caicos lobster clubhouse or lobster pizza.
Nibble on Lobster at 72° West
Named for the longitude coordinate for Providenciales, 72° West is a very popular seafood restaurant adjacent to the pool at The Palms. Under a canopy of stars, you can sit back on comfy couches and savour signature fare including an assortment of select seafood. To begin with, how about a bowl of Caicos conch chowder or some seasoned conch fritters? Follow it up with the Caicos Red Snapper, Curried Coconut Stewed Conch or Caicos Lobster Pasta.
Indulge in Seafood Choices at Parallel 23
Tall French doors lead to a terraced area where towering palm trees adorned with twinkling lights greet you. Seafood choices abound. Welcome to the chic Caribbean setting of Parallel 23, one of the notable seafood restaurants in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and winner of the 2017 "Best of Award of Excellence" by Wine Spectator Magazine. The menu features choices such a Swordfish steak grilled to perfection, lobster risotto, red snapper in a pistachio crust, or poached lobster tail with fresh red and purple plums. It’s an ideal spot for a romantic dinner for two or memorable milestone celebration.
Unique Spa Treatments Incorporate Conch Shell
The national symbol of the Turks and Caicos Islands, the conch is an integral part of Caicos cuisine. But here at The Palms it’s also a key ingredient in one of the resort’s spa treatments.
In the 90 minute Mother of Pearl Scrub at The Spa at The Palms, a mixture of hand-crushed local queen conch shells, sea salts and a special aromatherapy blend is applied to polish your skin. Then you’re treated to a one hour massage after which your skin is softened with mother of pearl milk. Visit The Spa, an oasis of soft music and soothing scents. You’ll leave feeling relaxed, revitalized and ready for that special evening dinner or stroll at sunset.
A superlative spa experience, some signature seafood on Providenciales; The Palms Turks and Caicos invites you to seaside splendour.
