Set in an old West Indian cottage in Road Town, the Dove has its elegant, ambitious way with haute cuisine, with an eye to seasonality and exceptional ingredients. It’s probably the best dining you’ll do in Tortola. You might start with tomato and artichoke soup with a dollop of basil cream, or a braised beef rib with a yellow curry glaze. Entrees include pan-roasted duck with a red-wine raspberry ginger glaze, or a pork tenderloin with fried garlic honey glaze and cheddar bacon potato rosti. It’s an intimate, romantic place, with a candlelit interior and a deck beneath a mango tree.
