Anguilla New Years at Anacaona’s Firefly Restaurant

Anacaona’s Firefly Restaurant’s New Year’s Eve Celebrations sounds like it’s going to be a Reggae blast.

It all starts at 7:30 PM with Lobster Bisque, Three Bean Salads, local organic arugula salad, summer salad and conch fritters.

Chef Kevin Paul slips into high gear with a feast fit for a king, buffet style! Meats include…

  • Caribbean Spit Roasted Pit
  • Grilled Chicken Breast
  • Oven Roasted Prime Rib
  • Pan Roasted Rack of Lamb

Prefer seafood? How about some or all of the following?…

  • Freshly Grilled Deep Water Red Snapper
  • Grilled Jumbo Prawns
  • Grilled Crayfish

Side Dishes (seasoned rice, oven roasted Yukon potatoes, grilled veggies, cinnamon flavored plantain and vegetarian lasagna) round it all out.

An assortment of desserts wraps dinner up.

And then, it’s on to the “Concert on the Lawn” for dancing to the stylings of Omari Banks (Banx Eleven) and the new reggae hit on-island, Tru Intentions Band.

Champagne at midnight, of course.

At US$100 per person, this sounds like a good mid-priced way to welcome 2014. Arrive starving!

Reservations are STRONGLY suggested. Call 264-497-6827.

Anacaona ReVamped and ReOpened

Anacaona boutique hotel (formerly La Sirena) has reopened after months of redecorating and improvements.  New roofs, new paint jobs, and a new garden were all installed by Anacaona’s regular staff.

In their new garden Anacaona now boasts an array of exotic fruit trees such as Sour Sop, Golden Apple, Sugar Apple, Ginips, Mangoes, and tons of lime trees.  Also, an herb and vegetable garden has been planted for their restaurant.

Monday nights at Anacaona will now be home to Anguilla’s Klassique dance troup.  After watching their moves, you can try your hand at salsa, merengue, and other dances with a professional instructor.

Thursday night Anguillian themed buffet and entertainment with the Mayoumba Folkloric Theatre is still running for $45 plus taxes (including dinner) or for $15 at the bar (this includes two drinks).

Sounds like a lot is happening at Anacaona this season!
