There is something to the shades of blue at Long Bay. They glisten extra-vibrant. Lush palm trees and sea grapes perfectly frame every hue and view.

In the distance, Jost Van Dyke calls your name.

Perhaps most captivating of all is the view to the west. The combination of the emerald mountain with the swaying palm tree conjures up mystical Caribbean day dreams.

Blended or On The Rocks?

When hunger calls, 1748 is a stone throw's away. Dine inside the restaurant's cavernous rock walls for a historic feel. Or, if you prefer the sea breeze, 1748's generous patio offers plenty of oceanfront seating.

Dining to the sound of the rolling waves puts you at ease for days.

1748's menu is tight, fresh and healthy. Plenty of high protein options and farm fresh salads grace the menu.

To start, we recommend...

Smashed Avocado

Avocado is seasoned with chili flakes and served with a pestle and mortar. Smash it to your liking, sprinkle a touch of lime and pair with the picante dipping sauce.

Another winning starter...

Vegetarian Fully Loaded Salad

We have to thank our waitress for this outstanding recommendation! Feta is marinated in a bell pepper purée and popped on an ultra-fresh salad complete with pickled red onion, plump cherry tomatoes and wisps of carrots and beets. The dish comes with sun-dried tomato focaccia.

For mains, another spot-on tip from our waitress...

Les Acadians Crucian Style Sweet & Spicy Half Chicken
half chicken at 1748 restaurant

You know you have found an excellent restaurant when their chicken is fall-off-the-bone succulent and juicy. 1748's is just that. Chicken is rubbed with tangy Caribbean spices. It is then braised ever so slowly with ginger, onions, turmeric, garlic and paprika.

Crispy skin breaks to the pressure of your fork. The soft meat inside pulls from the bone so easily.

The dish comes with an extraordinary side of rice & peas. Bathed in a chicken consommé, these are some of the most sumptuous rice & peas we have had to date.

After a rich meal in an elegant ambience, there is nothing left to do except stroll home to your suite and take in the sounds of the beach...

Good Night, Long Bay
