Brandywine Bay Restaurant
The Brandywine Bay Restaurant has an unfair advantage over
every other restaurant on Tortola, even before you think about the food.
||Sitting in a cobblestone garden terrace, on a hill
overlooking Sir Francis Drake Channel, with a hint of a warm breeze caressing
your cheek, whilst delighting in an indescribable BVI sunset, you could almost
be forgiven for thinking that the food wasn’t important. Not for long!
The cuisine at the Brandywine Bay Restaurant,
incredibly, is as memorable as the setting. So, enjoy your aperitif on the
terrace - but be prepared for a gastronomic experience to delight the senses.
Brandywine Bay Menu
There is no fixed menu at the Brandywine Bay as it changes
on a daily basis. What never changes, though, is the quality. The owner, also
the chef, is Italian born Davide Pugliese, who was taught to cook by his mother
– and what a teacher she must have been! Davide will introduce you to the menu,
handwritten on a portable white board, and his elaboration on the details of the
food preparation will in itself be a delight.
Appetizers such as beef or vegetarian carpaccio, grilled
Portobello mushrooms, homemade mozzarella or mussels in sake are all prepared
and presented with simple style and elegance. Main courses might include
porcini encrusted tuna, roast duck in mango sauce – the duck is crisp on the
outside, moist on the inside, while the sauce is a chutney type that will take
you to heaven and back, grilled veal or tortilloni di carne. Using the freshest
local fish, herbs and vegetables and highest quality imported ingredients, this
blend of the best of the Caribbean and Florentine culinary traditions truly
justifies the restaurant’s stunning reputation.
And when you have finished your succulent main course,
there is genuine, homemade, wonderful tiramisu. You might think you know all
there is to know about tiramisu – but until you have tasted this one, you don’t.
Davide and his Australian wife, Cele, have created a
restaurant that offers a five star service in an intimate, elegant setting.
Dining at the Brandywine Bay is an enchanting experience which will live with
you long after your time in Tortola has finished.
The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 6.30
until 9.30 during the season, but it is definitely advisable to reserve your
table, which can be done by phoning 284 4952301.
If you are sailing, there is safe anchorage in Brandywine
Bay and the restaurant monitors VHF Channel 16 after 2 pm, so you can book
ahead. If you are driving here, it’s about 10 minutes from both Road Town and
East End. As befits a restaurant of this caliber, beachwear isn’t acceptable,
the dress code being described as ‘casual elegant’.
