Date Night - 5 great options for that special night out...

Updated: Aug 4

It’s no secret that our absolute favorite Date Night on The Island consists of a couple bottles of wine, some fried chicken with coleslaw and a beach chair set up along Grace Bay Beach. But, we get it, sometimes you just want to have a nice romantic dinner for two and an excuse to have a fancy night out.

Not to worry, we’ve got you covered!

Keep reading for some great suggestions we know won't disappoint your taste buds!

This list is in no particular order, they should all be on your "Must Try" restaurants list!


Check Out These 5 Fabulous Date Night Spots!


Bay BistroA beach front restaurant located directly on Grace Bay Beach at the Sibonne Beach Hotel. Book a table in the sand or on a romantic corner on the deck. This delightful spot will not disappoint if you’re headed out for a special occasion. Not a fussy vibe at all, smart casual attire is perfect. The food however is incredible (not to mention the view). From Seared Yellow Fin Tuna to Conch Wontons, this little gem will be the perfect setting for a night to remember under the stars.


Coco BistroMake a reservation before you leave home! Dine in the middle of a Palm Tree Grove that’s lit up with millions of twinkle lights. What more could you want? Such a gorgeous setting for a fancy night out. Ladies, put on your nice summer dress and men, your fancy shirt and shorts or light weight pants. This location is impossible to miss along Grace Bay Road as it’s painted the most vibrant, happy shade of bright coral. Arrive early and have a cocktail at the bar before being seated. Then feast the night away on some spectacular island cuisine. And keep and eye out for Vanna the cat! She's a resident of this restaurant and if you’re one of the lucky few, she'll come dine with you to make sure you’re having a great time. Or she may be found lounging on a barrel munching on tuna tartar at her sister restaurant, Coco Van.


MagnoliaIf it’s an incredible meal and a sunset view you’re after? Well, Magnolia is the place for you. Situated on a hillside just above Turtle Cove Marina, Magnolia Restaurant will give you the most romantic setting for your date night. Sip your wine as the sun goes down, take some photos and dine on some incredible Island dishes. Leave room for dessert and order one for each of you! Two desserts and two spoons? Perfect end to the perfect meal. Great cocktails here too btw! Smart casual attire is perfect for here also, but if you prefer to bring out the glad rags, you won't feel overdressed. It's a lovely setting to fill your bellies, and take beautiful photos.


Mango ReefI know we don’t have a favorite restaurant but…..if we were to say we did, maybe this would be it (but not if that offends all our other favorites). A large open space restaurant located at the Turtle Cove Marina, Mango Reef is ideal for large groups and romantic date nights. Watch the boats come in after a day out at sea and dine on some of our favorite dishes on The Island. The Blackened Thai Simmered Tiger Prawns is our must have dish (at least once) every visit. And the seafood pasta is a big hit also! And let’s not forget the fabulous Mango Cheesecake for dessert! After dinner, stroll around the marina and chat to the boat Captains cleaning up their catch. You might even see a sneaky shark or two enjoying the catch of the day too! Side note: Mango Reef has a great Happy Hour also! Casual to dressier attire is suitable. All depends on what you're celebrating.


Indigo - Located in Wymara Resort, Indigo ignites all your visual senses. Stunning decor and ambience sets the mood for a fabulous and romantic date night. Your meal will most likely start with Chef Andrew greeting you table side to explore the days specials. A nice touch to impress upon that someone you're with. Though the setting is chic and elegant, the vibe is relaxed and comfortable. Indigo boasts a creative and extensive cocktail list so start your night off with a toast of Indigo Blue or Indigo Rose Martinis. The menu prices are higher end, but the flavors deliver on taste and and quality. The Jamaican Jerk Tiger Prawns are to start are to die for, especially followed up with Caribbean Mahi Mahi or Australian Lamb Rack. Everything on this menu is well thought out, no detail is missed in any dish. Smart casual to dressier attire is suitable at Indigo. Dress to impress if you're going to sip martinis for the night though. Really cute bar seating makes for great photos!


BONUS RESTAURANT

Infiniti BarOk, so we love ending our night at The Infiniti Bar at The Grace Bay Club. No matter where we’ve gone for dinner, if we haven’t stuffed ourselves with dessert this is our go to for sure! Take a seat at the incredible Infiniti Bar and order up a delicious martini or whiskey night cap for dessert. The atmosphere is fabulous and the people watching is pretty spectacular too. It's such a glam spot, you'll love it. So many great photo ops to be had at The Infiniti Bar! Feel free to break out that special sun dress or your dapper shirt to make the most out of your photo ops. Depending on which night you’re there, there may even be some live entertainment to enjoy while soaking it all in. A really great spot to end your night and enjoy a casual stroll in the sand.


Hopefully this gives you a few suggestions to book a couple of memorable nights out..
