Fresh Delicious Food

With a culinary passion that matches the beauty of the island Caneel Bay calls home, our Caneel Bay Culinary team oversee all dining operations for Turtle Bay Estate House, Caneel Beach Terrace and the Caneel Beach Bar & Grill. We also offer private dining and room service options as well as banqueting for special events.

We are always looking for new opportunities to infuse Caribbean techniques and traditions with modern day taste. All dining menus are created with healthy, nutrient-rich and flavorful food – cooked with integrity and the freshest possible ingredients. Our menus feature locally sourced items such as Mahi, Conch and Caribbean Lobster along with fresh produce from an organic farm located nearby on St. John.

In addition to maintaining a high standard for fresh ingredients the Caneel Bay Culinary team is happy to work with any guests to customize menus for special dietary needs. Please contact the resort in advance of your stay and will be able to prepare for any special needs.

Join us on March 31st for a special celebration for the Centennial Anniversary of Transfer Day. View details here.
