Island Dining

From barefoot barbeques to formal a la carte dining, there are many different ways to enjoy the island’s natural hospitality.

The Veranda Restaurant, acclaimed throughout the region, offers a mouthwatering and sophisticated a la carte menu which focuses on fine dining with reference to traditional Caribbean flavours and style of cooking, serving dishes such as Local lobster steamed with Caribbean winkles and sorrel, snapper cooked in coconut butter and roti spices, and Barracuda baked with lemongrass and tamarind. Where possible ingredients are sourced locally ensuring fabulous fresh fish and seafood and the extensive award winning wine list, notably Wine Spectator 2013, will keep even the most enthusiastic oenologist happy.

Guests can enjoy a cocktail before or after dinner at The Great Room Bar which with its cooling fans, lime washed woods and West Indian artifacts is elegantly decorated in Messels’ signature colonial style. Renowned for its extensive cocktail menu and sophisticated surroundings, it provides the perfect backdrop from which to watch the sun setting on another day. The weekly Mustique Company cocktail party is held here giving guests the opportunity to mingle with resident homeowners and catch up on island news.

For those seeking something a little less formal the Beach Café situated on Endeavour Bay is a relaxed fish restaurant and beach bar, perfect for meeting up with friends in the morning and for long leisurely lunches under the shade of the palm trees. A range of light dishes and a childrens menu are available throughout the day.

The Beach Cafe has been recently extended to include a separate bar for evening cocktails at sundown, and a dedicated Ice Cream Parlour, serving a delicious range of homemade ice’s and smoothies. By popular demand the Beach Café will now be open into the evening offering a more informal evening menu by the sea.

Further afield Basil’s Bar located in Britannia Bay has been hosting an international crowd for over 25 years. In season, Wednesday night is party night with a barbeque buffet dinner and the famous ‘Jump Up’ with live music. More serious ‘groupies’ return in late January, when A-list musicians participate in the Mustique Blues Festival. Guests have the unique opportunity to enjoy world class music with the ocean lapping at their feet. Please note due to urgent structural work the Bar will be relocated to the Summer Pop Up next door until Autumn 2017.

Home to the legendary Mustique Champagne and Martini Clubs, and a firm favourite amongst the island’s regulars, The Firefly’s central cocktail bar is famous for its fabulous sunset views over Britannia Bay. The restaurant serves a range of dishes using fresh local ingredients with a Caribbean theme, and excellent pizzas, which are available for home or beach delivery!
