Indulge your chocoholic side at Boucan, where everything on the menu features cocoa paired with fruits and vegetables grown on the surrounding cocoa plantation. Take your pick from a fresh cacao bellini ($12), citrus salad with white chocolate dressing ($9), cacao-butter-roasted seasonal fish ($24), and a trademark dessert called The Story of Chocolate in Ice ($9).
Settle into an upstairs table before dark at local favorite Gee’s Bon Manje to sip rum punch ($8) as the sun sets over Soufriere, the Pitons, and the Caribbean Sea. Once night falls, dig into some hearty Lucian-style Caribbean cuisine made with locally grown ingredients, like a bowl of creamy pumpkin soup ($8) and home-cooked mahi-mahi in a coconut-ginger sauce ($24).
Chow down on fresh seafood at the communal Friday night fish fry in Anse-la-Raye, a small village that comes alive around 6:30 p.m., when calypso music starts blaring, fish and lobster sizzle on grills, and flavorful conch stews boil away ($2–$30). Be sure to scope out all the options, ask for prices, and chat up other diners to find out what dishes they like before ordering.
