Concierge.com's insider take:
A local favorite, this simple spot specializes in sophisticated West Indian cuisine. Chef Dale Carty's skill in the kitchen previously landed him at Malliouhana, where he cooked for a dozen years. The influence of that restaurant's French chefs is obvious in Carty's more upscale versions of local food. His marinated conch salad, for example, made with olive oil, lemon juice, and herbs, is delicate but flavorful. His true strength lies in cooking the dishes that he grew up eating, such as West Indian curry goat, cooked with potatoes and peppers in an iron pot handed down from his grandparents. This season, Carty has opened a new restaurant, Dune Preserve, on Rendezvous Bay, co-owned by the island's most famous reggae musician Bankie Banx.
