Caribbean Food Guide - Dining Out

Caribbean food is best known for its big, hearty stews and curries embellished with spices, coconut milk and hot peppers. Island residents tend to eat more at home, as eating out is too expensive. Middle-class families can afford to eat in fast-food restaurants and jerk huts. Therefore, the table-service restaurant industry in the Caribbean is driven primarily by tourists, foreign residents, or a small minority of well-off families. Most Caribbean restaurant dining is outdoors, and some will have a view of the water. Caribbean restaurants with a seaview will be higher in price than those without.
