If you are travelling to Turks & Caicos, make sure you try Caicos Café.

This is a popular restaurant on Grace Bay which is located in the main island of beautiful Turks & Caicos. It belongs to French restaurateur and chef  Pierrik Marziou and his partner, Daphne, who believe in all the right things: freshness, simplicity, comfort. This means a limited but interesting menu of dishes, with choices that might include conch sashimi, tuna carpaccio, grilled snapper, and steak au poivre, along with home-baked breads. The covered, fairy-lit terrace and buzzing bar make restaurant to look local. Prices are high as an average entrée is $30, but portions are big and could be shared.
