Guanahani Restaurant & Bar
Local Grand Turk Dishes & International Cuisines
Located within our Grand Turk hotel in Turks and Caicos, the famous Guanahani Restaurant & Bar is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with an extensive menu prepared by our Executive Chef, Jorika Mhende.
Diners can enjoy our candlelit inside dining room or a more casual atmosphere outside on our Ike and Donkey Deck or Red Lounge Area under the palm trees overlooking beautiful Pillory Beach.
If you consider yourself a ‘foodie’ and appreciate the finer culinary things in life, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
There is always something going on at Bohio. From Reggae BBQ on Saturday nights to Sunday Brunch and British High Tea – choices can change daily or weekly, but Chef Jorika’s creations are always exceptional.
Wednesdays are saved for Salt Cay Gary and classic oldies tunes while Chef Jorika treats us to her Bento Box Specials, served in a traditional Japanese bento box with chopsticks and a complimentary sake.
Saturday night is Reggae BBQ night, where Chef Jorika prepares a delicious menu on our outside grill while Bohio’s live Rake & Scrape Band will help you dance the night away.
Sunday mornings mean Sunday Brunch, which includes your choice of Bohio’s champagne mimosa or Bloody Shrimp Caesar cocktail. You can also enjoy the Soothing Sounds of Kahlil on the piano in our outdoor lounge and a Gourmet Burger Special for only $10.
Bohio Dive Resort now offers British High Tea along with a selection of finger sandwiches, fresh scones with Devon clotted cream and preserves, and miniature sweets to finish, all served with either a pot of English Tea, Champagne, or Pimms.
Of course, our regular menu is also always available from Sunday through Friday, excluding the Saturday Reggae BBQ.
About Our Chef
Chef Jorika Mhende joined Bohio in 2007 and is a South African native, graduating from Pretoria Technikon in 1986. Jorika spent years cooking for African hunting camps – experience that taught her how to take local food and make it “smart.”
Mhende lays claims to a broad range of specialties. She boasts skills in mastering world-class cuisine from various countries. Her Pad Thai is incredible and the locals consider her restaurant among Grand Turk’s very best. Her fans love the fact that her menu changes daily and there’s not a day that goes by without another delicious addition or special up for grabs.
Her cuisine has made quite an impression on the island, and we are endlessly thankful to have her at Bohio.
