Just minutes north of the port of St. Charles, this restaurant lies in a little fishing community called Shermans. The restaurant is in a family-run oceanfront hotel but is so special that even nonguests should visit. The complex was constructed on the site of a 17th-century fort that later was used to store sugar. The food is intensely flavored and produced with finesse. The appetizers are among the most imaginative on the coast, everything from Canadian scallops seared with chutney spices and cilantro oil to baked king prawns with a garnish of tomato. Other delights include cracker-crusted tuna, grilled swordfish, a seafood platter for two, and braised lamb shanks.
You may fall in love with the place and want to stay in its one-, two-, or three-bedroom chattel-styled cottages, each furnished to a high standard with a living room and a spacious covered dining terrace off a fully equipped kitchen. Winter rates begin at $492 for a double but are lowered to $292 in the off season.
