Facing scenic Grace Bay Beach with a great view of fantastic flaming Caribbean sunsets, Hemingway’s beachfront restaurant at the Sands offers elegant open air dining with a menu devoted to regional specialties you can’t anywhere else.
While Hemingway’s is located at luxury resort The Sands at Grace Bay, resort guests and beach-walkers alike come here to enjoy the beautiful view from Hemingway’s wood deck and tuck into breakfasts including cinnamon raison French toast or huevos rancheros with fresh black bean salsa on a seasoned tortillas.
There’s also everything in between from fresh fruit to traditional Eggs Benedict – and that’s just for breakfast.
Hemingway’s does a great lunch too. There’s the usual and much loved fare of tasty sandwiches, and meal-sized salads, plus local specialties including soft fish tacos, mango shrimp salad and Caribbean jerk chicken & chips.
If you have a sweet tooth you’ll love our key lime pie with a graham cracker crust to fried ice-cream with cinnamon powdered sugar and chocolate sauce. That’s right – fried ice cream, a dessert made of a breaded scoop of ice cream that is quickly deep-fried creating a warm, crispy shell around the still-cold ice cream.
The Chicagoans invented it, and the Caribbeans perfected it.
We like to serve fresh grouper for dinner, lightly spiced and pan seared and served with a tequila sauced veggie salsa with charred onions, black beans, corn, carrots and red and green peppers.
We’re also proud of our sauteed shrimp with pesto cream over penne pasta. For the gourmet palate, try the filet mignon grilled with a fragrant red wine mushroom sauce.
We also feature a Catch of the Day, using fish caught in local waters.
Grace Bay Beach is also known for JoJo the Ambassador Dolphin (recognized as such by the government of TCI), and there is a little brass bell on the beach for your kids to ring to summon him.
There may be a bit of a wait – JoJo is getting older now and spends most of his time out in the Caicos Bank – but it makes for great conversation, especially with kids, while anticipating dinner.
Hemingway’s is a Turks & Caicos restaurant. Hours of Operation: 8am – 10pm Daily
