51 Cipriani Blvd.
Located beneath a popular nightspot, Aura Restaurant and Bar is a fresh addition to Port-of-Spain. The dual space has a dimly lit dining room, with equally dark wood furnishings and chocolate-colored drapes, that contrasts with the stark whites of the sleek bar area. Skip the traditional burgers and pastas in favor of bold Caribbean specialties like West Indian spicy pork chops with chutney and pigeon pea rice, and grilled herbed mahimahi.
Tip: Sit on the outdoor patio to take advantage of the cool breezes blowing off the nearby Queen's Park Savannah (entrées, $8$40).
