- Blanchards, Anguilla (tel. 264/497-6100), ranks high on everyone's list of top beachfront eateries. Owners Bob and Melinda Blanchard have become celebrities themselves, thanks to their witty books about the joys and perils of running a Caribbean restaurant.
- Da'Vida, Anguilla (tel. 264/498-5433). Anguillian Chef Guy Gumbs' restaurant is one of the island's favorite places for celebratory dinners. Da'Vida -- whose motto is "Celebrate Life" -- comprises a more upscale open-air restaurant and the casual Bayside Grill. The menu draws heavily on local seafood (crayfish, snapper, grouper) and does creative twists on traditional island cuisine. Everything is just steps from shimmering Crocus Bay.
- Veya (Anguilla; tel. 264/498-8392): On an island blessed with top-caliber chefs and the Caribbean's best dining scene, this Sandy Ground "treehouse" is one of the best -- and it's only been around since 2007. The Pennsylvanian chef/owners call their food the "cuisine of the sun," and it's a minxy fusion of exotic flavors from hot spots around the globe.
