Speightstown | (246) 422-2586


Camelot, which is part of Cobblers Cove Hotel, is located along the southern outskirts of Speightstown. Though they're broadly known for French-inspired cuisine, this potential favorite is known for its barbecue and seafood. <p>This restaurant follows the hotel's lead by combining the style of an English country house with something little tropical.
