Carriacou (001 473) 443 6399
The Grenadine island of Carriacou is
even smaller, even more spotless, even goatier than Grenada.
And at the Green Roof Inn, a tiny five-room place where I
stayed quite by chance, I found, chalked on a blackboard, the
best menu I have ever seen: smoked lobster, gravad barracuda,
calaloo soup - lobster gratin, smoked barracuda, pickled
kingfish. Oh boy.
The managers, Jonas and Åsa, and Magnus, their
chef, are Swedish, and they do that Swedish fish thing with
the sea life of the tropics to genuinely unique effect. Ever
had smoked lobster? Thought not. Best thing you’ll ever eat.
Enjoy gravad lax? Ha! It was the barracuda that was born to be
gravadded. This is the most beautiful dining environment, with
the most beautifully conceived menu, and the best food for the
best value I have seen on Earth.
