Seven Turks & Caicos

seven turks & caicos

My wife and I have eaten at Seven Turks & Caicos twice and it was a memorable standout both times. With two trips to Turks and visits to 20+ restaurants in Provo, including most of the big hitters, we would put Seven at the top of the Fine Dining list.

During our latest visit, we started with a tasty rare thai beef amuse-bouche which kicked things off on the right foot. Since lobster season had just closed (there’s a lobster season? Who knew…), we ordered a crab and yellow fin ceviche that was out of this world – really excellent and unique.

Since this was night five of our vacation and we had already consumed half of the ocean’s species over the week, we changed things up by ordering the Garden Pea Risotto appetizer. It’s hard to blow someone away with a risotto, but this bad boy was amazing. It’s available as a starter and an entree, and it would be an excellent choice for dinner.

Between courses, they served a really nice berry sorbet – a nice touch on a warm night.

The beat went on with the entrees – the South Caicos snapper with cous cous and Tzatiki was served in small succullent filets over a bed of deliciousness and rates a top 5 fish experience for me. It was so good I actually can’t remember what my wife ordered (maybe beef?) though I recall we loved it too. The wine list is not cheap, but you could get a decent bottle for $65 which was also offered by the glass.

The restaurant itself is well-laid out with a mix of indoor-outdoor semi covered seating. It was raining off and on, so it was nice to have a covered outdoor option that was still gave you that beach flavor – though more Miami beach than Carribean beach. No sand in your toes here…

The host or maitre-d’ made a stop to check on us, and service was impeccable throughout – definitely a cut above most other spots we visited.

Niptick 1 – the restaurant is not on the beach side of the hotel. That said, it still has a nice ambiance – think hedge funders with their families in matching polos, but somehow still not pretentious.

Nitpick 2 – guys, your bread is dry and lifeless! It gave me that nails on a chalkboard chill… such an easy thing to improve that could make a difference, especially out of the gate. And what’s with the ice cold butter block? The Frog influence could go…

That said, while Seven Turks & Caicos may not have the unique atmosphere of places like Coco Bistro, it is definitely a must visit for high end innovative cuisine and great service on Provo. We would rate it as our top fine dining meal of the week, and it wasn’t even close.
