Blanchards Restaurant first opened its tall, teal shutters on the island of Anguilla in 1994. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens with the sea just a few steps beyond, guests dine by candlelight under lazy ceiling fans and rustling palms.

The cuisine is creative and sophisticated with flavors from the Caribbean, Asia, America and the Mediterranean. The wine list is a Wine Spectator award-winner and yet, the atmosphere is as comfortable as can be. No attitude, no jackets required, no pomp and circumstance.

Blanchards has been hailed as one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean. Bob and Melinda Blanchard are the creative founders of this dreamlike setting but since its inception, their staff has played an important role in making it what it is today. This group works together like no ordinary restaurant team. They have formed a close family and take tremendous pride in making guests feel at home.


A self-taught chef, Melinda Blanchard serves food that's full of flavor and not fussy. If you order the mango tart, the taste of freshly picked fruit will shine through. The lobster cakes have large chunks of lobster in every bite and the grilled snapper is served with a sweet corn puree and homemade succotash that people say is one of the most memorable dishes they've ever had.
Food presentation at Blanchards is colorful and varied but you'll find no sugar domes or precisely fanned slices of lamb here. Melinda doesn't like food that's been over handled in order to shape and arrange it on the plate. Desserts are likely to include Warm Bread Pudding with Berry-Apricot Sauce or Carrot Cake with Coconut and Homemade Lemon Curd. Simple and absolutely delicious!
