The 50 Best Restaurants in the Caribbean – 2024

Don’t be fooled: there is a formula to creating a great restaurant. It’s the same formula we use to evaluate the region’s best places to eat. You see, every great restaurant is built on three core pillars: food, service and ambience. Superlative restaurants check the boxes in all three, reminding that a great restaurant is not solely about its food or the way it looks; it is about how it makes you feel. Because when you make the decision to travel to a restaurant, you are looking for something transcendent, something unforgettable. You are looking for a memory. And the best restaurants deliver precisely that.

It has now been 11 years that the Caribbean Journal team has been carefully surveying the Caribbean restaurant landscape, a time in which there has been remarkable change and growth in the region. In short, the Caribbean’s food scene has never been more dynamic or diverse. As top local chefs continue to emerge, more and more of the world’s most renowned culinary stars are also looking to bring their own gastronomic excellence to the region, with the fusion of those forces making for an enviable global culinary power. The Caribbean is now a global culinary superpower, and it’s time that the world realized that.

We’re excited to share the 11th annual edition of the 50 Best Restaurants in the Caribbean. Congratulations to all of this year’s selections!

#1 Brass Boer, Bonaire Bonaire’s legendary oceanfront eatery retains the top spot this year, with a remarkable blend of Michelin-level Dutch Caribbean fare, ultra-focused service and a spectacular setting by the sea at the Delfins Beach Resort. The Caribbean outpost of Holland’s three-Michelin-star Die Librije is precisely as good as its forebear, and it only keeps getting better.
