So so good! This was one of our favorite dinners while on our honeymoon. The food is all local Caribbean flavor and is so good. We would recommend the chicken in wine sauce and the fish in Caribbean sauce. Enjoy!

Often crowded but never too noisy, Palm's Delight serves well-prepared food to tourists, seasonal residents and local alike. Sonny and Iona have teamed up since the old Skyworld days.
