The Red Ginger serves a nice variety of dishes that are popular throughout the Americas and the Caribbean, with a few other International offerings (like tapas on Wednesdays and Sundays thrown in there as well). The menu includes flatbread pizzas, ceviches, pastas, and seafoods, and a five course tasting menu is available, allowing you to experience the best the restaurant has to offer.

The Palmilla Restaurant, which is on the premises of Victoria House Resort, is found just outside the heart of San Pedro.

Elegantly folded cloth napkins and crystal glasses set at the table exemplify the elegance of the candlelit dining room.

Cocina Caramba

San Pedro | (501) 603-1652

Cocina Caramba is located outside the center of San Pedro. The fresh taste of fish and Continental cuisine make for a bold combo at this well-liked restaurant.
