The food is good and fresh and prepared with a lot of TLC at the signature restaurant of the Palms at Pelican Cove, but the setting is sheer enchantment: You’re right on the beach with tall palms rustling and lights twinkling in the cove. Yes, you can plant yourself in the indoors dining room, but we prefer the terrace, and if you’re lucky you can find a seat there too. The food is called “Caribbean-inspired” and it’s mighty fine, with an emphasis on the catch of the day, but the restaurant is often lauded for its perfectly char-broiled ribeye. Monday is the restaurant’s Caribbean Night, with an all-you-can-eat buffet featuring ribs, fish, chicken, johnnycakes, sweet potato stuffing, and more ($30 adults, $15 children 11 and under) and Carnival entertainment.
