Barnacle Billy's - Located in picturesque Perkin's Cove. Billy specialises in the local delicacy of lobster.

Hurricane - 11 Perkins Cove Rd. The modest exterior is missleading and to enter is the start of a culinery adventure. The menu changes every day depending on the mood of the chef, but you can always expect a well prepared meal, good service and stylish decor. It is small and popular, so you have to book.

Five - O - 50 Shore Rd. Less formal choice for an evening of dining, but the food is just as good and menu is very creative. The menu is inspired by the tropics and much of the fare is sort of Caribbean mixed with Africa. The menu also changes all the time; never boring, always exciting.
