Sandals Resorts are known for their excellent cuisine, and out of the four Sandals Resorts we’ve visited, Sandals Grenada Resort and Spa (formally Sandals LaSource Grenada) definitely met our expectations for delicious food.
Sandals Grenada has 10 restaurants and 6 bars that are all included with your stay. We are pretty big foodies, so we were thrilled to see the selection available to us during our stay. We knew the moment that we arrived and got settled, we needed to make reservations and plan out our foodie itinerary. Pro tip: While all restaurants are included at Sandals resorts, there are a few at each location that are reservation-only. This means that if you don’t book reservations, good luck trying to get a table at all – this places book up practically instantly. To ensure that you aren’t left out, be sure to head to the Culinary Desk right away!
If you’re interested in reading brief descriptions of each restaurant, you’re going to have to head to the Sandals Grenada website, because there’s no sense in repeating everything here. Instead, we’re going to share our favourite dishes with you (complete with photos). If you’re planning a trip to Grenada soon, you may want to try these dishes out yourself!
There are 4 places that serve breakfast at Sandals Grenada, 2 of which (Spices and Cucina Romana) serve a buffet style meal at opposite ends of the resort. The buffet-style restaurants serve mostly identical items, with a random “special” of the day, which may include a different protein or vegetable concoction. In addition, there is your typical “American” breakfast: sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, omelettes, cereal, baked goods (muffins, croissants). There is also a giant fruit and raw vegetable spread, charcuterie spread, a freshly squeezed orange juice station (which actually constantly jammed itself), coffee, tea, and a couple of other random options. Pretty thorough, and you’ll find something for everyone.
One of the other breakfast places, La Jardinier, was a completely different vibe (and our preferred spot) as it was an à la carte French-style restaurant. This place definitely better food according to our tastes. You had the option of ordering a starter (oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, etc.) and a main meal (eggs benedict [pictured below], waffles, pancakes, omelettes, corned beef hash, etc.).
Lastly, there’s the Café de Paris, which was a cute coffee shop and crêperie! Their cappucinos were AH-MAZ-ING, and they did a fantastic job with their crêpes as well:
The lunch options at Sandals Grenada were between Spices, Neptune’s, Dino’s, and the hotdog stand “Doggies“. We didn’t get a chance to check out Spices for lunch, but we definitely ate multiple times at the other locations. Neptune’s was great, as it was right on the beach, and gave a perfect view of both the ocean and one of the pools. The hotdog stand was incredibly convenient and acted both as a great place for lunch as well as a mid-afternoon snack. Dino’s was on the other side of the resort from us, but we LOVED their pizzas, and made an effort to get there when we didn’t eat at Neptune’s. Below are some of our favourite dishes from Dino’s and Neptune’s:
The choices for supper dining options were fantastic. We actually got to the point where it was a challenge for us to decide where to eat for supper because everything looked incredible. We had reservations for Butch’s Chophouse on our first and last nights, and Kimonos for our second night, and from there we tried to get into every other dinner place at least once. Below are some of our favourite meals that we actually remembered to capture before stuffing our faces:
Naturally, we also enjoy a good dessert every now and then. When you stay at an all-inclusive, though, dessert is essentially mandatory. Here are some of our prettiest desserts (that we remembered to take photos of):
We only managed to stay up late enough on our last night in Grenada to grab food at the Tipsy Turtle English Style pub. It was dimly lit and showed sports games on the screens, and was open from 6pm – 2am every night for your late-night, pub food cravings. We did order nachos and a burger, but also fish and chips! The batter was crispy and delicious – the perfect late night food.
Well, if you’ve made it this far, we thank you. I know it was a lot to read through, but at least you were rewarded with yummy food photos along the way! This post only captures a tiny bit of what Sandals Grenada had to offer, so if you’re heading there soon, we hope that we were able to help make your meal decision-making process a tiny bit easier!
