Dinner on our first night for this trip found us at Charcoal’s, a new BBQ restaurant in Lanse Aux Epines, just down the road from our villa. It’s clean and casual and fun, not to mention reasonably priced. DH selected the grilled lambi platter while I opted for the babyback rib platter, each accompanied by our choice of 2 sides. The lambi was good but my ribs were really terrific, and though the sauce was sweeter than I was expecting, it was laced with cinammon and other local spices and it really worked! One beer, one rum punch, and one order of ice cream brought our total to EC $101, or about $38 in US. They also offer take out, which seemed to be a popular choice the night we were there.
It's tricky to rate this place on service, since a lot of it is just counter service. But all of the staff members we encountered were pleasant and helpful. We happened to hit this restaurant the night before they closed for a vacation, otherwise it would have definitely been a repeat visit for us on this trip. Despite being a BBQ joint, they do offer quite a few seafood selections and even a few options for vegetarians, including a garden burger.
Charcoals is exactly the kind of restaurant Grenada could use more of and I look forward to our next trip so we can try it again.
