If you could only pick one to dine at, which one would it be?

No question for me...... For great food, Caicos Cafe wins hands down!

If you're looking for beachfront dining, I prefer Bay Bistro over Mango Reef, but that's just my personal preference.

If you want to see Nada play, I'd suggest seeing them play atThe Deck at SS and enjoy a relaxing drink there at the beachfront bar/ restaurant.

duhhhhhhhhhh.....Caicos Cafe if you are into the food. Mango Reef if you must be on the ocean. I like to eat well so the choice is easy for me. Caicos Cafe.

Both are nice and very different.

Mango Reef

I personally really enjoy dining there when Nada is singing that evening.

Have had very good meals, especially the Thai inspired dishes with seafood.

Like that it is ocean view and a short walk to Somerset and Palms.

Very friendly wait staff.

Moderate price tag.

Caicos Cafe

Food is good...somewhat fussy.

Environment is just ok since it is a deck facing a parking lot.

Somewhat aloof air to this place...hard to put my finger on why all the hype for this place.

Just my thoughts

I don't get the fussy comment at all since I hate pretentious restaurants and don't find it there at all. The food is just very well done. Mango Reef is good fill, not great food. I'll give them the better location though...

Just MY thoughts..

Funny thing about taste, it's relative!

I would prefer, without seeing the rest of your list, Bay Bistro, Coco Bistro, Le Bouchon, even Tiki Hut for a break of fine dinning (and sometimes you just have to have beer and wings) even Hemingways over either!

Ask 5 people, get 5 answers!

Although everybody agrees on Coco Bistro! (I think? ;-)

Mango Reef is "good fill" not great food?

Sounds like a pig trough reference .

A great restaurant is more than an amuse bouche with attitude.....

Just my thoughts.
