Calibishie has a wonderful new place to dine out, the Calabash Restaurant. Itâ€™s conveniently located in a real beauty spot, moderately priced, and serves wonderful food. The phone number is 445-8438.
The Calabash Restaurant has an extensive menu featuring beef, pork, seafood (both fish and shellfish) and chicken in delightful preparations and available as both starters and entrees. And the Calabash offers nice deserts and brews a fine after-dinner coffee.
The restaurant has a well-stocked bar and offers indoor and al fresco dining, the former on the ground floor adjoining the bar and the latter on a first floor deck.
Tables on both levels are available overlooking Calibishie Bay, a beautiful view at any time. On clear days the fine ambience view includes Calibishieâ€™s famed â€œDevilâ€™s Gate and Red Rocks, the bay and reef, and the islands of Guadeloupe, des Saintes and Marie-Gallante.
By night the restaurant floodlights the bay on its shore and one can enjoy twinkling lights on Marie-Gallant and/or the heavenly light of the moon, planets, stars and Milky Way while dining. Reservations arenâ€™t required but a call a day or two in advance can secure menu choices.
No mention of the Calabash Restaurant would be complete without compliments to the staff and the fine service provided. The Calabash Restaurant is very easy to find. Coming from Portsmouth on the main road, look to the left about 150 yards after passing the school. Itâ€™s directly on the bay in the refurbished former Domcanâ€™s Restaurant building. Make a point of visiting for a great meal.
