Markets & Bazaars
There’s some permanent stalls in the market building but the real action is on the streets outside. Bananas in shapes and sizes that will never get slapped with a multinational brand label are found in profusion...
If the food weren’t so good you might think you’d entered a pirate’s dungeon, given the moody lighting and stone walls. Food spans American and Caribbean favorites; the lunch buffet is great...
A classic yachties’ bar complete with ‘80s beer posters on the wall, signed undies and hand-drawn maps to secret islands...

Parks & Gardens
The oldest botanical gardens in the western hemisphere, the St Vincent Botanic Gardens are lovingly tended and provide an oasis of calm that’s only half a mile north from the frenzy of Kingstown.

The fine dining room of the Grenadine House lives up to the high standards of the hotel. Locally sourced produce is used in inventive creations that combine Creole, Caribbean and American flavors...
Stare out to sea across Kingstown’s historic rooftops from the hotel’s airy top-floor cafe. Serves pancakes, omelettes, burgers, salads and more. The ice cream sundaes are a good mid-afternoon treat.
