Dress Code at Sandals & Beaches Turks & Caicos Restaurants
Some of the restaurants at Beaches Turks & Caicos have a specific dress code, like resort evening attire. If a restaurant is listed as resort evening attire, this means men need to wear long pants or jeans, and women should wear dresses or long pants. No shorts, T-shirts, or sneakers will be accepted. Other restaurants are more casual, and you can pretty much dress how you want, as long as you cover up your swimsuit and wear appropriate footwear.
Resort Evening Attire – Men need to wear long pants or jeans with a dress shirt (long or short sleeves with or without a collar is accepted) with dress shoes or elegant sandals. Women should wear dresses or long pants. No shorts, T-shirts, tank tops, or sneakers will be accepted. Resort Casual Attire – Really anything goes, but swimwear is required to be covered, and shoes are required. So for women, pack a pair of shorts & a tank top or dress to throw over your swimsuit, and for men, any shirt with your swim trunks is Fine. Shorts or jeans, T-shirts, and tank tops are accepted.

The only people you can tip at Beaches & Sandals are the butlers and spa employees.
Where to Dine at Beaches Turks & Caicos Restaurant Guide
The first time we ate at Bombay was at Sandals Barbados. This is still our favorite Sandals Resort restaurant of all. Beaches Turks & Caicos also has Bombay! Absolutely mind-blowing Indian food at Bombay Club, especially the garlic naan and the butter chicken. The aromatic flavors of cardamom, ginger, and saffron are so fragrant that they really give these dishes a completely different feel from any other restaurant at the resort.
There are also plenty of options for vegetarians and vegans, like vegetable samosas (pastry-wrapped potatoes and peas), onion bhaji (herbs and onions mixed with flour and spices), and dal tadka (creamed lentils with garlic and onions). If there’s still room in your tummy for dessert, then we also recommend the Galub Jamun. This sweet dish is made with deep-fried milk dumplings, rose water, and cardamom.
Another perk about all the restaurants at Beaches Turks & Caicos is you can try things you’ve never had before. If you don’t think you like Indian food or haven’t tried Indian food, this is a great chance to try something new. Honestly, I don’t know anyone that wouldn’t enjoy their Garlic Naan or Butter Chicken dish. If you end up not liking it you can have a second dinner at another restaurant at Beaches Resorts.

Not only is Kimonos a great place for Japanese food, but it’s also one of the most entertaining restaurants at Beaches TCI. The food here is served teppanyaki style, which means the chefs cook everything on a hot, flat iron right at your table. Kids love eating at Kimonos. The food is good and it’s a unique experience.
While they’re cooking, they do all sorts of fun tricks with the food, so it’s kind of like a live show just a few feet away from you. You never know what they have up their sleeve – juggling utensils, flipping shrimp tails into their chef’s hat, or even building a mini-smoking volcano out of an onion!
The food is also pretty good. You get to choose from teriyaki beef, ginger-infused chicken, or peppery shrimp with different salads, soups, or gyozas for a side. The only downside is that the dinner and show can be quite a long event (and you need reservations ahead of time), so it’s not the best choice if you’re traveling with children or impatient eaters. If you have been to other Sandals Resorts you probably have dined at Kimonos. It’s one of the Sandal brands’ most popular restaurants.

3. Curls & Swirls – Ice Cream & Milk Shake Truck
We’ve never seen anything like this at any all-inclusive resorts before! Curls & Swirls is a food truck that’s parked right outside the waterpark at Beaches TCI. They serve some of the tastiest frozen treats, which is much needed after a hot day sliding down water slides or floating down the lazy river.
They have ice cream, milkshakes, and frozen yogurt. Grab it to go or sit outside on one of the cute colorful picnic tables to enjoy your treat before heading back to the park.
Anything goes; we always went up to the food truck with our swimsuits on10 am – 6 pm
4. Mr. Mac
This was another fun food-truck option at Beaches Turks and Caicos. They served different types of macaroni and cheese but with a modern, artisanal spin.
Although we loved their classic American mac and cheese, we also ordered the buffalo chicken mac, which was amazing. They also had some more unique flavors like Philly cheesesteak mac, crab mac, and even deep-fried mac balls.
Mr. Mac is a great option if you’re looking for something fast or to-go in between some of your more formal sit-down dinners. After all, who doesn’t love a comfortable bowl of mac and cheese?
If you are traveling to Beaches Turks & Caicos with little kids (our son was 16 months old at the time), this was our go-to lunch spot. Usually, the food was ready within ten minutes and was easy to bring back to our room for our son and heat up later as well.
Anything goes. We always went up to the food truck with our swimsuits on10 am – 6 pm
5. Bella Napoli Pizza
There’s nothing quite like a hand-tossed wood-fired pizza. This casual, outdoor pizzeria is a must if you’re looking to eat somewhere for lunch. All their pizzas are made exactly to your liking and heated up in the wood-fired oven right there by the pools. Choose from pizza margarita, pepperoni, meat lovers, veggie, or craft up your own concoction for them to make!
They do tend to take around 45 minutes, so we usually placed our order and then came back later to pick it up. It’s great that you can head back to your sun lounger and wait for your pizza to be cooked.
If you have a butler and you find yourself like a 2 pm pizza on the beach, you can ask your butler to bring you a pizza every day at 2 pm. Yes, it’s really that easy.
Resort Casual Attire11 am – 5 pm
6. Arizona’s Restaurant
Arizona’s Restaurant was one of our top choices for a casual dinner (although they also have a buffet option during lunch). You can dine outside by the pool with the ocean just steps away or inside in their festive dining room. They also have a kid’s menu with chicken wings, chicken tacos, and cheese quesadillas which is great if you’re traveling with any picky eaters.
Their Southwestern-inspired menu offers traditional dishes, like BBQ baby back ribs, tortilla soup, and beef, chicken or shrimp fajitas. However, the best dish we had there was their grilled T-Bone Steak Sonora. This thick slab of beef is grilled to perfection and served with mouthwatering chipotle hero butter. Remember to try one of their signature desserts too, like chocolate mud cake, key lime pie, or pecan cheesecake.

7. Barefoot by the Sea
Dine directly on the beach with the soft powder sand between your toes when you eat at Barefoot by the Sea. This place is known for its fresh seafood dishes, like blackened wahoo, poached blue marlin, or grilled tuna. You can even add a delectable sauce of coconut curry, papaya, or lemon caper to smother it all in.
Although they’re open throughout the day, we mostly came here for their amazing breakfast. If you ask us, it’s the best breakfast at Beaches Turks & Caicos.
Our son loved sitting at the cute picnic tables outside, and we loved the fact that you could dine barefoot! Some of their signature breakfast dishes include peach pancakes, French toast fingers, or Caribbean shrimp and crab omelets. If you’re looking for something on the lighter side, they also serve smoothie bowls, steel-cut oatmeal, and fresh fruit.

8. Café de Paris
Every day for us starts at Café de Paris. We’d always stop by Café de Paris in the morning for coffee and a snack. Their pastries are out of this world. For example, the black forest cake, coffee eclair, blueberry cheesecake, and coconut macaroons were all so delicious. Pair it with a hazelnut latte or iced coffee, and you have yourself the perfect breakfast.
Although there are plenty of options at the Beaches Resort for breakfast, sometimes you simply crave something small, like a coffee and pastry. Café de Paris has you covered in that department. This Parisian-style bakery is sit-down or to-go and serves all the classic sweet and savory treats that you’d find in a traditional patisserie.
Resort Casual Attire6 am – 10 pm
We first dined at Soy when staying at Sandals Ochi in Jamaica. If you are a sushi lover or want to try sushi for the first time head to Soy. If raw fish doesn’t sound appetizing to you, you should know several of the sushi options are with cooked fish. On one of our visits, I was pregnant, and there were plenty of sushi options for pregnant women.
If you list of restaurants at Beaches Turks & Caicos you want to dine at is super long, we suggest having a small meal early on and then having a later dinner at another restaurant. That way, you can at least try Soy.

10. Jerk Shack
You cannot visit Sandals & Beaches Resort without eating at the Jerk Shack. If you didn’t know, Sandals started in Jamaica, and the owners are from Jamaica. You’ll see a lot of ties to Jamaica in all Sandals & Beaches Resorts. One of our favorites is that all their resorts have a Jerk Shack! Make sure to check out our best Sandals Resort in Jamaica, as there are several to choose from.
Our first stop is always the Jerk Shack. If our room isn’t ready, we drop our bags and have lunch at the Jerk Shack. It is always our first meal at Beaches or Sandals. We love the Jerk Shack at Beaches TCI because it’s right on the beach, eat your jerk chicken with your toes in the sand.
They have a simple menu with Jerk Chicken & Pork and a few sides. The bonus is that it is usually ready quite quickly. If you love Chicken, you’ll love the Jerk Shack at Beaches Turks & Caicos.
Resort Casual Attire11 am – 5 pm
11. Bayside – Buffet Restaurant
If you can’t choose between a particular type of food, then hit up the Bayside buffet. They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, although they also have a snack bar in between meals from 2:30 pm to 5 pm. That means there is always something delicious to eat, no matter what time of the day.
During our stay, we usually opted for one of the a la carte restaurants instead of the buffet, just because we liked the tableside service aspect. But if you want a good buffet option with water-side views, then you can’t go wrong with Bayside. Items change seasonally and daily, although there’s always a mix of different regional and international dishes.
If you are traveling with kids and don’t have time to wait for a table or wait for food to be cooked, Bayside will be your best option.

This resort has brought the taste of Italy right to the islands of Turks and Caicos. After dining here, we can say that Mario’s is probably one of the most authentic Italian restaurants outside of Italy.
Mario himself grew up in Milan and used his old family recipes for many of the dishes, so you can’t go wrong with anything on their menu. Although most of the dishes are from the Lombardy region (northern Italy), you’ll find a great array of many classic dishes that are guaranteed to make your mouth water.
Risotto Fiesolana (rice with gorgonzola cheese, spinach, and walnuts), Linguine Casalinga (pasta with fresh mussels, shrimps, calamari, scallops, and clams), and Osso Buco alla Milanese (braised veal shank with saffron rice) are just a few of their most popular dishes on the menu.
For dessert, you can indulge in a few different Italian specialties – after all, the food here is unlimited! Tiramisu, cassata lime infused ricotta cream, warm chocolate tart, or a vanilla panna cotta affogato anyone?

Fresh Mediterranean cuisine and picture-postcard ocean views are just two reasons why we absolutely loved dining at Neptune’s. This elegant but casual bistro allows you to dine al fresco underneath the twinkling stars on the lush garden patio or in their open-aired dining hall.
The food, while simple, is made with the freshest ingredients from the region. Try their steamed mussels, seafood Caesar salad, or grilled octopus stifado for starters. For the main dishes, you can choose between Linguine alle Vongole, grilled swordfish, or Moroccan-inspired snapper fillet. But if you had to choose one dish, we recommend the signature seafood tagine, which is made with saffron couscous, apples, raisins, and almonds.

Whether you’re celebrating a special event or simply the fact that you don’t have your kids for the night, then Sapodillas is the perfect restaurant for your romantic evening. This adult-only restaurant is a modern take on traditional Caribbean dishes. Some of the most unique meals we had at the resort were at this spectacular restaurant.
Most of the dishes on the menu are seafood-based, although you can find a few non-fish dishes like tenderloin beef. Some of their most popular options include conch and king crab agnolotti pasta, grilled Chilean sea bass with vegetable couscous, and mixed seafood coconut curry.
Their dark and cozy dining room is ideal for those who want to dine inside, although you can’t beat a night out on the terrace overlooking the surrounding gardens.

15. Bobby D’s
This themed 1950s diner was a hit with our little one. They loved the colorful décor and the fact that it was located inside a Jolly Roger pirate ship in the Pirate’s Island Waterpark! Here, you’ll find all your guilty American foods like hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, macaroni and cheese, and even pizza. If your kids are just stopping for a snack, they can also order off the kid’s menu, which has smaller portions.
Although we preferred to eat at one of the more sophisticated restaurants, we would usually get burgers and snacks to go after spending a day at the waterpark. Then we would have a babysitter come while we treated ourselves to an adult dinner at one of the other specialty restaurants, like Sapodillas or Neptune’s.
If you have been out all night indulging in some adult beverages, you can get a late-night bite to eat at Bobby D’s. They are open until 6 am.

16. Sky Restaurant
We utilized the onsite babysitters and headed to Sky Restaurant for dinner for an adults-only meal. Sky Restaurant is only the second fly, so not exactly the sky. If you want a night with kids or kids next to you, make sure to put Sky on your restaurant list.

17. Dino’s Pizzeria Italiana
Another pizza restaurant at Beaches Turks & Caicos. Dino’s is more of a sit-down restaurant than Bella Napoli.
We often don’t eat at Dino’s because we are more in a hurry and don’t want to sit down for an hour for lunch. We like to grab our pizza to go and eat it on the beach or at the pool.
Resort Casual AttireLunch: 11 am – 5 pm
18. Schooners Seafood Grill
One of the most popular restaurants at Beaches Turks & Caicos is Schooners. If you want to eat seafood, you’ll want to dine at Schooners.
We also enjoyed eating breakfast at Schooners, as they have great ocean views and a nice breeze.

19. The Cricketers Pub
We are guilty of never actually eating at the Cricketers Pub. We always mean to because their menu looks really good, but there are so many great restaurants at Beaches Turks & Caicos.
We often find ourselves at Cricketers Pub a few times over the week at the end of the night for a pint or two of beer. They have a great space inside and a nice outdoor patio too.

2023 Beaches Restaurant Updates and Covid Response
On our last visit, some restaurants weren’t open due to the low occupancy rate because of Covid requirements. These restrictions are starting to ease but are somewhat in the control of the Turks & Caicos government. See the in-room newsletter that lists the daily activities, parties, and restaurants that are open for the upcoming days.
Things to know about Beaches Turks & Caicos
Beaches Turks & Caicos is also often referred to as Beaches TCI. You may notice it is called this in this article and on other websites. Many of the rooms can be upgraded to include Butler service, which in our opinion, is worth every penny. Not only will they make sure you have everything you need during your stay, but they’re also on hand to make dinner reservations or to escort you to your table. Another perk of having a butler at Beaches Resort is you can also have them order anything from any one of the restaurants and bring it to your room if you’d rather stay in for the evening.Note that the drinking age in Turks & Caicos is 18 years old. So if you have older kids, they will be able to have alcoholic drinks, OR if you have an older-looking child, you might want to keep an extra eye on them.Menus for all the restaurants at Beaches Turks & Caicos are available at the Concierge Desk in the lobby area.
