Serenity Restaurant.

On the quieter end of Shoal Bay East you’ll discover Serenity Restaurant & Bar. The open design of the restaurant lets you capture the fresh sea breezes and great ocean views while dining. They specialize in grilled seafood…lobsters, crayfish, fish, shrimp and conch. For the high season (Nov 15 – Apr 14) Serenity will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, seven days a week. There’s also a Happy Hour every day from 5pm – 7pm where you can enjoy Caribbean music, complimentary hot hors d’oeuvres and cocktails at half price.

A couple of interesting items off the breakfast menu are Baked Eggs in Tomato Shells ($9.95) and the Serenity Omelet ($9.95). Fresh fruit, juices, croissants and pancakes are also available. The lunch menu features lots of seafood, chicken and beef dishes. One that sounds really tempting is the Shrimp Scampi ($21.95) …tender shrimp sautéed in lemon butter sauce with garlic and parsley. They also serve lighter items such as burgers, sandwiches and salads. For dinner you can start with Conch Fritters ($9.95)…then try the Fresh Snapper Blackened with a pineapple mint salsa sauce ($23.95) and top it off with a sweet treat.

Serenity sits on a beach that is perfect for snorkeling and swimming. There are also beach chairs and umbrellas available and a cute beach bar. Look out for the Full Moon Bash…a beach party after dinner on full moon nights during the season…drinks, music and fun…Caribbean style!

Opening hours in season: 8am – 11pm, 7 days a week. Dinner served until 10pm. Telephone: 264-497-3328

Anguilla is Starting Up Again. The summer holiday is over and restaurants are reopening. Hibernia was one of the first, then Pumphouse, and Blanchards. Palm Grove opened on Saturday and we went for lunch; great fish of the day with johnny cakes. The next day Serenity Restaurant on upper Shoal Bay opened - right on a very secluded and beautiful part of the beach. And right after that, Shoal Bay Scuba reopened for diving.
