We stayed at the Ocean Club Resort which is right next door to this delightful restaurant. I tried the curried grouper for dinner and loved it. Then I tried the conch salad which they make with red peppers and jalapenos (all finely diced). The salad was so good that I had to come back two days later just to have it again! I talked to other people at my resort who own condos there and come to TCI 4+ times per year and they all said they go to the Flamingo every time they come to the island. The only negative thing I would say is that they need to get better signage so more people can find this little gem!

Flamingo Cafe is located just east of Club Med, right on the beach. It has a perfect view of Grace Bay. With a no window patio it is the perfect setting for a late lunch or early dinner. After eating average at best meals at Club Med for three days, we were ready for a real meal.

I ordered the conch ceviche and the grouper fillet. The conch ceviche was prepared expertly. It was cured in lime juice the perfect amount of time. There was no degredation of the meat. The peppers, onions and tomatoes complimented it very well. I ordered the grouper grilled. Flamingo Cafe prepares it 5 different ways, but I am a purist. The fish was fresh and it was cooked to perfection. It came with grilled green and red peppers on top. This was a nice touch, it did not overpower the grouper at all. The fish melted in my mouth. I can still taste it. For those that like sides, they also serve salad or fries and rice with beans with your dish.

The only reason why this is not receiving 5 stars, is that the beer selection was poor. However, they do keep what they have nice and icy cold.

Spent a couple of nice afternoons in this place. Food very good and quite reasonable on what is an expensive island. Have a good selection of fish, burgers and some local dishes. The service is good more importantly the beers are cold and the view is unbelievable.

I can vouch that the curry grouper is fantastic at this unassuming location. I was initially put off as it is a beach shack but the view of the sunset is awesome and the food was really good. A great deal for Provo. We were one of two tables on a Friday night in low season, the service was great. However they did run out of the red wine after my 1st glass :(. It is cheap for Provo where dinners within local/beach shacks for two with a few drinks seem to cost about $80(that was approx our bill). Highly recommend! This was my 3rd time to Provo and mad that I missed it my first two visits!

We went here for both a lunch and a sunset dinner (this is a great spot to see the sunset). It is right on the beach, next to Club Med. A very casual place - outdoor patio seating. The Mango and Passion Fruit daiquiris were excellent. My favorite were the fish fingers... soooo good! Everything is reasonably priced as well. Friday night is "Curry Night" and the curry grouper and curry shrimp were great. Fridays are busy so get there early!
