If you haven’t visited The Fish Pot at the Little Good Harbour hotel, then you really must. Boy are you missing out. The hotel and the restaurant are fantastic and in an amazing location, with exquisite views and divine food.
Set within an 18th century fort and overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the setting is second to none. The restaurant is an open-aired covered terrace with amazing views. The decor is eclectic and informal, with the coral stone walls and contemporary lighting creating a relaxed and cozy atmosphere.
I’d also recommend getting there for a sundowner if possible, as the sight of the setting sun reflecting on the calming waters is just spectacular.
It’s the second time we’ve stayed at the hotel (I’ll do a separate post on that as it is equally as deserving of one) and the second time we’ve had dinner in the wonderful restaurant. Breakfast is also served in the restaurant and there really is no better better way to start the morning than with a pot of tea, homemade quiche (try it, you won’t be disappointed) and the sights and sounds of the ocean. Afterwards you can step down on to the rose gold sand and enjoy a leisurely walk, easing yourself in to the day. I even feel relaxed just writing this and reliving the memory.
The greeting at the restaurant is always warm and the staff courteous and friendly. After enjoying cocktails in the lounge and watching the spectacular sunset, we were shown to our table at the waters edge and took in the amazing view. We ordered some wine and settled down to peruse the menu. Offering both local and internationally influenced food, there are also many options available to the non-meat eater and vegetarian. As usual, we both chose the fish, appetiser and main. How can you not when you’re in a restaurant called The Fish Pot and have the ocean at your fingertips?
The calamari and dip was lovely, but the warm octopus salad stole the show for me. It was just divine. Cooked to perfection and served with a fresh, crunchy salad, I could have eaten it all over and over again. We both opted for the ahi tuna for our main course, served lightly seared and very rare it comes with a selection of sides. It was an amazing piece of fish, cooked just perfectly and it melted in your mouth. We would both go for this again, and have talked about it a few times since. Not usually ones to go for dessert, we shared the apple pie and it was like no other. Beautifully prepared, cooked and presented, it topped off the meal wonderfully. Ten out of ten!
We’re already looking forward to our next visit and I don’t think that it will be too long away!
