Del Place

Top choice creole in West Coast

This delightful spot weds cafe-cool to excellent cooking. The centrepiece is local seafood: octopus straight from the lagoon, baked red snapper in banana leaf, seafood platters and Creole curries, including the rarely seen crab curry. Throw in great salads (such as palm heart), local tapas, cool cocktails and beautiful beach views and it adds up to our favourite west-coast venue.

Food can take an age to emerge from the kitchen when things are busy – all the more time to enjoy the view, but not ideal if you're in a hurry.
