This good-looking, fine-dining restaurant opened up in 2009 on the gorgeous sands of Crocus Bay. Da'Vida is actually two restaurants: the casual-elegant main dining room, built above the beach with high-pitched ceilings and open on three sides, or the even more casual beach bar, the Bayside Bar & Grill, connected to da'Vida by a walkway and set right on the breezy beach. The main restaurant serves upscale, thoughtfully sourced island-inspired dishes and local seafood, including Anguillian lobster and crayfish (spotted Caribbean lobster). The moderately priced Bayside Grill has some of the island's best barbecued ribs and chicken, accompanied by rice and peas if you like, and ethereal johnnycakes. If it's Sunday, you can kick back to the live tunes of Omari Banks and his band at the Sunday Beach Party (1 to 5pm). Rent a beach chair for a refreshing dip in Crocus Bay.
