One of our most successful restaurants, widely acclaimed by locals and visitors alike, is Blanchard's on Meads Bay. We have been there many times. One time we noticed a chauffeured golf cart from nearby Malliouhana hotel, waiting to scoot diners back to their hotel suites. And here are pictures of a farewell dinner at Blanchard's.
Melinda and Robert Blanchard have also written a book about their experiences in Anguilla, published in Fall 2000: Click Here.
