Reggae music echoing in the background. Soft waves rolling into shore. Bright sun shining down on us...
This is Smokey's, located on Cove Bay. It's a low key restaurant right on the beach. The perfect place to have lunch.
We walked in wondering what to expect and saw many locals. That, in of itself, told us this was going to be a good meal. As soon as the waitress saw us, she gave us beach chairs for lounging on this Anguilla beach.
My sister and I swam in the ocean, but soon our dad called us in for lunch. We sat at a table right on the beach. When we were given our menus, I didn't have to read the whole menu to know what I wanted... a grilled chicken sandwich. I sat wondering if this meal would be as good as the setting.
Pretty soon a delicious looking plate was placed in front of me with a perfectly grilled chicken breast between a fluffy bun, with fresh tomatoes and lettuce. The rest of family, who had ordered burgers, sensed my excitement and asked for a taste. As soon as I plunged my teeth into the tender chicken, I knew this was the best I had ever tasted in Anguilla. It came with fries and the chicken can be grilled or smoked. We have been vacationing in Anguilla for 10 years, so that says a lot. Smokey's lunch is delicious and with a friendly staff this is something you shouldn't miss.
Nori's Reply: Thank you for sharing your delicious lunch experience, Eliza. Our family have had many a great lunch and dinner at Smokey's.
Smokey's at The Cove on Sunday's is a real treat with live music, beach activities like volley ball or just taking in the sun and sand on another great Anguilla beach. The wave action is gentle and Cove Bay has one of the shallowest beaches in Anguilla. You can walk into the ocean onto a soft, sandy floor for quite a distance.
As well as lunch, Smokey's is open for dinner. The outside deck allows you to dine right on the beach and with the lights of St. Martin in the background at night, dinner couldn't be more pretty... or scrumptious. They have an extensive dinner menu from pasta to steaks to lobster or fish. Just about anything for every taste and it is all mouth watering.
Smokey's at The Cove is another great Anguilla dining experience, open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Call 264-497-6582 for reservations.
