One of Harbour Island’s most redeeming qualities is its ability to offer you everything on the lifestyle spectrum. Here, rustic authenticity and old-world glamour work together to give the Crown Jewel of the Caribbean it’s unique stamp on hospitality. Those looking to dabble in the island’s old-world glamour will be pleased to learn it boasts various fine dining establishments. Most restaurants are open from November - May and some are open year-round.
Conch & Coconut’s concierge team has long standing relationships with all the restaurants on the island and can help you secure those coveted tables on the island's top dining spots.
Here’s a run-down of our favorite fine dining restaurants on Harbour Island:
This delectable Italian restaurant located inside Romora Bay Resort and Marina is the perfect spot for a romantic and relaxing dinner. If you time it right, you can enjoy a phenomenal sunset view while you sip Italian wines and eat your favorite Italian dishes. Don’t miss the Penne alla Vodka!
The Restaurant at Ocean View Hotel
Perched above the pink sands on the east side of the island sits a family-owned boutique hotel called The Ocean View. This boho-chic haven is more than a hotel and restaurant, it’s an experience. The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and is served al fresco in a beautiful covered terrace overlooking the Atlantic. We highly recommend you try the local lobster and or the stone crabs with a chili herb butter sauce.
The Dunmore Club Restaurant
The unofficial hub for the island’s old-world glamour, the Dunmore evokes the energy of a private beach-club in the 60s. The chic restaurant is open to the public for dinner (breakfast is usually only for hotel guests during the high season) and offers a blend of contemporary Mediterranean cuisine with a special touch of island flavors. While there is no dress code, we recommend button-downs and pants for men and a dress or blouse for women.
You can’t come to Harbour Island without visiting The Landing Hotel’s restaurant. This bayside restaurant, designed by India Hicks, is open for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner every day except Wednesdays. Their Chai tea lattes and Ricotta hotcakes are one of our favorite ways to start the day. For dinner, the old Colonial home hosts a candle-lit environment that you’ll never forget. Make sure to stop by their bar behind the main dining hall, it’s one of the coziest in town.
Situated in one of the original establishments on the island, Malcolm 51 at the Pink Sands Hotel features a gourmet menu that doesn’t disappoint. It’s bistro style menu offers island favorites like local grouper and has staples like grilled chicken and NY strip. Malcolm 51 is only open for dinner.
Da Vine is Harbour Island’s premier sushi restaurant and is known for being one of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s favorite spots on the island. Da Vine’s head chef is former head chef of Nobu and brings his worldly touch to this local hot-spot. All the fish is beyond fresh and goes amazingly with their signature wasabi martini.

Another iconic restaurant and longstanding institution on the island is the Rockhouse hotel and restaurant. Old-world glamour reigns at this beautiful bayside establishment that serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Come early and enjoy a martini at their Al Fresco martini bar before indulging in decadent contemporary cuisine. Their menu is host to all your creature comforts like filet mignon to grilled lobster tail. p.s. Don’t be shy to dress up when coming to the Rockhouse!
