For years, we’ve been renting our villas in St. Barth from WIMCO, without question the premiere Villa Rental Agency on our favorite island. This year, we had to skip St. Barth since we were off to Asia. Our friends at WIMCO missed our annual restaurant rundowns. So they sent us this. It’s a Restaurant Guide that covers just some of the phenomenal places where you can rent the very best villas with the Concierge Services that make WIMCO the world leader in villa rentals. You can even use those Concierge Services to make reservations at every one of these great places to dine. As an added bonus, you can even ooh and ahhhh over the villas in every place mentioned here. And for more villa advice, go to www.wimco.com or write Bethany Ludwick, the Agent with the Mostest, at email@example.com
For those of you who delight in the gourmet life, why not plan your next vacation around some bucket-list restaurants? From Barbados to Cabo (and a whole lot in between), take a look at some must-try restaurants, and villas that are conveniently nearby.
This Greece-meets-Miami outdoor restaurant is one of the top places to be, not just for the scene, but for the incredibly fresh food. Start off with a signature cocktail (Viva El Mexico for a fun Mezcal), and be sure to leave room for their soufflé….
ALSO IN TOWN…
Katrin for a super authentic Greek meal (think spanakopita served tableside), Avra for romance under the bougainvillea, and Matsuhisa for your sushi fix.
This authentic Thai restaurant in Gustavia is perfect after a few big nights out. Who doesn’t want to relax and recharge with some fabulous spring rolls?! We also love their take-out option for lazy nights chez-vous.
BE SURE TO CHECK OUT…
25 Quarter nearby for a rum tasting or after-dinner drink…Shankar Juice Bar for your almond-milk latte & green juice…
MARK YOUR CALENDAR…
Head to St. Barths for 4 fabulous nights of tasting menus this November 1st – 4th for St. Barth Gourmet Festival! There will be eight Michelin star chefs coming to the island to cook in eight different restaurants. Call WIMCO for reservations.
Similar to St. Barths’ Isle de France, Lone Star has that crisp, elegant beachside vibe, filled with craveable classics like gazpacho, tuna tartare and prosciutto & melon.
WE ALSO LOVE…
Traditional Caribbean fare at The Tides, sleek seaside vibes at Cin Cin, and a special meal (ask us to book way in advance!) at The Cliff.
Like many restaurants in the Caymans, The Brasserie offers a well-priced tasting menu. We especially like this spot for its farm to table cuisine and elevated interiors.
ALSO CHECK OUT…
Le Bernadin’s Eric’s Ripert’s famed Blue at the Ritz…a beautiful setting and Michelin starred Upstairs…Italian eats and seaside ambiance at Ristorante Pappagallo…
Cabo San Lucas
One of the most enchanting restaurants that’s great for all occasions – romantic dinners, girls’ trips, or family meals. Nearly everything on the menu is sourced from their farm in Baja, or caught in the sea of Cortez. After dinner, chill out to their live music, and don’t miss the carrot margaritas…! Word to the wise, have us a hire a driver to take you here; the road is bumpy!
MORE SPOTS YOU’LL LOVE…
Acre Baja, another farm-to-table restaurant nearby to Flora Farms. Edith’s in Cabo town for an authentic and very fun (you’ll probably run into someone you know) dinner…lunch on the beach and tequila, tequila, tequila at Father’s Office…
