We visited Blanchard's with a group that consisted of two families. The meals were out quickly and the service was top notch. I had the jerk chicken, and found it to be very well done with the chicken breast cooked to perfection--i prefer my jerk chicken to be thigh, but I'm not complaining. Everyone enjoyed their meals, there was a... More

This is a must do restaurant for the inspiring story and management approach. I read the book by the Blanchard's and Met Mel while she greeted tables so that is priceless. It's a special place that was rebuilt after a hurricane and has developed and hired all local talent. Some very good food options like the jerk shrimp. We also... More

Blanchards is one of the most expensive restaurants on the island of Anguilla, however, this was my third trip to the island and I just had to try it. I went with the Prix Fixe dinner and wasn't disappointed. It was a good value for the money and allowed me to try more than one dish. Everything was delicious!

We dined at Blanchard's beach shack for lunch and the restaurant for dinner once also. Food is expertly cooked and served hot and fresh. My wife thought the portions were too large and myself being being a big eater thought the positions were filling. Their fish and shrimp were excellent. We had their pear tart and it was excellent.

This is arguably the finest cuisine on the island. I had the snapper which was the best I ever tasted. My wife got the combo dinner - salad, steak, desert for $50. For appetizers we had the lobster/crab cakes. Everything tasted fabulous for sure. My only gripe is I hate spending $200 for a meal for two and leaving hungry.... More

My husband, adult son, and I started our vacation with a fantastic dinner at Blanchard's on a Monday night. From the warm and friendly servers to the beautiful open-air beach view, to the uniquely prepared, generous mahi and chicken dishes, and coconut dessert, all were fantastic! We also dined at Veya, Straw Hat, Jacala, and Italia that week, but unanimously... More

My wife and I had abruptly changed our dinner plans, and arrived at Blanchards on a Saturday night without reservations. The hostess was accommodating, and after a short time in the bar, during which we enjoyed cocktails and conversation, we were seated. The bar experience did give some food for thought. One of the beverages ordered was their signature drink....with... More

If there were ten stars Blanchard's deserves every one of them. I've been to some of the finest restaurants in the world from the US to Europe to Asia, and Blanchard's is right up there. Charm! Impeccable personable service. Fabulous drinks. Incredible food. Desserts! It does not get much better than Blanchard's!

Blanchards has long been the most highly acclaimed restaurant on the island and Melinda Blanchard and her team makes dining there a truly memorable experience. A visit to Anguilla without a meal at Blanchards is inexcusable.
