"The food, oh the food! This was the highlight of our stay. Be prepared to over eat at every meal"
One of Hermitage Bay’s most distinguishing qualities is our commitment to serve delicious meals made from the freshest, highest quality ingredients. As avid travellers accustomed to world-class cuisine, we consider dining to be an integral part of the holiday experience and hold the restaurant ambiance, service and cuisine to the highest of international standards. Under the direction of our seasoned yet ever-curious executive chef, Hermitage Bay offers a varied menu of Caribbean favourites, American classics, and modern European fare with an emphasis on fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Our multi-tiered, al fresco restaurant is quintessentially Caribbean. "Set up against the beach, (it) is just another picturesque element of the property," offering unobstructed views of the bay and a perfectly intimate setting. Though the restaurant is one of the hotel’s most charming attributes, you may also enjoy dining by the pool, in the lounge, or on the beach. Room service, private dining under the stars, and picnic lunches are available as an additional service. Regardless of setting our staff go to great lengths to ensure that "every meal (is) artfully presented and just delicious."
Recognizing that true 5 star dining is not limited to fois gras and caviar, the chefs at Hermitage Bay create savoury entrées that are ideally suited to our guiding principles. The menus change daily, so that each meal becomes an occasion to sample different flavours and try original recipes. Local produce, poultry, and seafood are used liberally in accordance with our effort to minimize food miles. With so much emphasis placed on fresh, high quality ingredients and made-to-order entrées, "[the food] is what you would expect from a 5-star restaurant, not an all-inclusive resort."
