Robert De Niro’s New Caribbean Restaurant

By: Alexander Britell - May 22, 2021

It’s only open by day. 

They come by boat or helicopter, or by short jaunt from the tents at the Barbuda Ocean Club. 

And the early returns are spectacular. 

This is the Caribbean’s hottest new restaurant, and it just so happens to be Robert De Niro’s new Nobu in Barbuda. 

It’s set on a stunning stretch of sand on the increasingly hip island of Barbuda, and it’s home to exquisitely good food — a full-fledged Nobu hidden away on a remote beach in the Eastern Caribbean.

The new Nobu is part of a broader Nobu Beach Inn project, as Caribbean Journal Invest reported earlier this year, and it’s already becoming a local favorite. 

The menu is classic Nobu — superbly sourced sushi, outstanding entrees like miso black cod and even a Wagyu selection, and right now the eatery is open from Wednesday to Sunday, starting at 12 PM.

And yes, it gives new meaning to the term “destination restaurant” — with most guests literally flying or sailing to the island just for a meal at Nobu.

Barbuda is quietly becoming a favorite among the jet set, thanks to the buzz around De Niro’s hotel project and the significant Barbuda Ocean Club, just the second Discovery Land Company project tin the wider region (you may be familiar with the first – the ultra-exclusive Baker’s Bay in Abaco).

The latter is helping draw new guests to the island, with a selection of glamping-style tents available for real estate suitors at the development, which will include a Tom Fazio-designed golf course. 

And that’s along with Barbuda’s already-lovely selection of boutique hotels like the Barbuda Belle and the lovely Barbuda Cottages, among others. 

In other words — it’s the sort of island where you’ll want to stay for dinner and breakfast, too.
