Set on a gorgeous wooden deck right on the water's edge, The West Deck is an elegantly casual restaurant that offers a "small plates" menu served up by a staff that is friendly and always efficient.

The West Deck

The small plates menu focuses mainly on Caribbean eats such as Island Fish Cakes, Balashi Grouper Fingers, and Tenderloin and Plantain Pincho. The menu continues on to include a list of sandwiches, wraps, and burgers, and is rounded out by a nice selection of beverages and desserts.

The West Deck is a bar and grill where they proudly serve their take on Caribbean cuisine. When it comes to the level of formality, the setting here is very casual. This dining option is on the table during both dinner and lunch, so why not stop by?


Dining takes place on a large wooden deck spotted with light wooden tables and chairs that are given a cozy feel from the glow of the twinkling lights above. The view from the deck is of a white sandy beach in the foreground and the ocean in the back, often with a cruise ship on the horizon.
