Galley Bay has three open-air, beachfront restaurants and a casual beachside grill. Menus offer Euro-Caribbean cuisine, featuring fresh, local produce and seafood.

The resort’s award-winning Executive Chef Andrew “Stan” Baxter has won several gold medals and was trained at London’s Dorchester Hotel and Ritz Casino, among other fine restaurants. The Seagrape, a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, blends European culinary techniques with tropical Caribbean and Creole flavors, such as citrus-roasted pork shoulder with pumpkin and cilantro pilaf and a grenadine glaze as well as escalope of snapper with home-grown eggplant caponata and a cherry tomato confit. The casual, beachside experience comes complete with live, steel drum music, and soothing sounds of the resort’s newly added waterfall mixed with Caribbean waves lapping upon the shore. The Gauguin, a more intimate restaurant, serves lunch and dinner in beachside, thatched cabanas for two. Dishes are inspired by European and West Indian cuisine.

Highlights include island-style goat curry with red beans and corn meal-crusted chicken with mango and spinach stuffing. Ismay’s, a dining option for special occasion, is a restaurant surrounded by tropical gardens along the resort’s white- sand beach. Named after a popular 49-year resort team member, Ismay Mason, Ismay’s incorporates the island’s fresh, local ingredients into its menu. Favorites include pressed duck and liver with a smoked beef brisket and oregano brioche as well as grill-seared swordfish with a saffron mash maltaise sauce and olives. The dining surcharge for Ismay’s is $35 per guest – changing to $45pp for 2015. In addition to serving three delicious meals, the resort also provides afternoon tea, evening hors d’oeuvres, top-shelf beverages, live entertainment, cocktail parties and a Caribbean beachside barbeque on Thursday evenings.
