Imaginative, diverse and simply delicious, the food is one of the biggest reasons our loyal guests return to Curtain Bluff year after year. It’s been praised by the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, Forbes, Fodors and Gourmet Magazine, and with all meals included in the room rate, it truly sets us apart from our competitors in value.

Breakfast and dinner are served daily in the Tamarind Restaurant, and lunch and dinner are served in the Seagrape Restaurant. Afternoon tea is served in the library overlooking the gardens. All meals are served a la carte, with reservations required for all meals.

The Sea Grape

At the far end of the bay beach, right on the sand and tickled by near-constant sea breezes, is the Seagrape. This open-air establishment serves up an expansive daily lunch offering (including our weekly beach barbecue accompanied by a steel-drum band). Bento box service is available to your cabana on the beach or by the pool from 12pm to 4 pm. Seagrape offers dinner several nights per week. Dinner fare is an inventive blend of Italian and Antiguan influences with dishes like yellowtail tuna carpaccio, beetroot gnocchi and fresh-caught pan-seared wahoo filet. In the evenings, smart shorts and collared shirts are recommended for gentlemen. For ladies, denim shorts are not permitted.

The Tamarind Restaurant

Start your day with a shaded breakfast set to the pace of the gentle sea breeze at our central restaurant, the Tamarind. The menu includes traditional favorites like banana pancakes, French toast and eggs benedict, plus traditional island dishes, fresh juice, fruit and baked goods prepared in house by our renowned pastry chef. In the evening, dinner tables awash in candlelight are set with a rotating five-course menu including salads, locally caught fish, outstanding meats, and so many desserts they have their own menu. After the meal, diners filter onto the terrace for dancing to live music and stargazing under the moonlight. Daytime service is casual attire. At dinner, slacks (no jeans) and a collared shirt with dress shoes are required for gentlemen. For ladies, denim shorts are not permitted.
