Bugaloo’s Conch Crawl

is a popular island cuisine restaurant located on Five Cays Beach’s turquoise waters. The restaurant serves a variety of local, Caribbean, and seafood dishes and frequently hosts live music and entertainment in the evenings. Their rum punch is a well-known favorite drink, and they’ve evolved into a tourist attraction, with live entertainment at times. Bugaloo’s is one of the few restaurants on Providenciales that has tables on the beach and in the water. Bugaloo’s main selling point is the atmosphere, with outdoor dining under coconut trees overlooking the sea.

Bugaloo’s serves lunch and dinner only (no breakfast) and has a popular wine and rum bar. Their menu is heavily influenced by Turks and Caicos and Caribbean cuisines, with many conch dishes and local fish like red snapper on the menu. There’s cracked conch, conch salad, conch fritters, fried, grilled, blackened, and steamed fish, and classic sides like peas and rice, coleslaw, and baked mac and cheese. Their signature dessert is rum cake made with locally blended Bambarra Rum. Other types of seafood, such as shrimp and lobster, are also available. Bugaloo’s was founded in 1994 and was originally located on Blue Hills Beach before moving to Five Cays. Stanley Roots, a local musician and Reggae artist, frequently performs at Bugaloo’s, usually during the day.

    This was my favorite meal of my entire trip, compared to similar restaurant last and more high end restaurants. The food was great, particularly the crack conch, grilled local fish, and the blackened shrimp. The vibe was so nice, with maybe the best view and beachfront seating on the island. And all of the staff were wonderful, friendly, and provided great service. I would absolutely come back here above any other restaurant.

    This place is away from most of the tourist spots. The food was good, but sitting by the water you get swarmed with flys, ants, and mosquitoes. They have their own conch farm and we got to see them harvest one fresh. Conch is very popular on the island.

    An amazing out of the way, off the beaten path hole in the wall looking place. Food was phenomenal. Service was first rate, view is amazing. Everything about this place is unbelievable. Mike was our server and was super nice and very knowledgeable about a lot of things we inquired about. This is a must visit place to eat at.

    Takes a little effort to get here. Apparently it rained pretty good in this area just before we got here. Be careful with the 25-20 strays in the road. Kind of amazing to hear them howling though, fitting for days before Halloween. I'm sure if it didn't rain it would have looked even better. We sat inside instead since outside was still quite wet. Tried a new amber beer which was alright. Wanted clam chowder but didn't have any so moved on to conch dumplings, without sauces don't think they would have much flavor. My wife ordered the local lobster. Visually appealing, she thought it had a fishy flavor, I thought it was a spice and wasn't bad and not fishy. It was a whole lobster and filling I tried the grilled conch with peas and rice. I did not know what to expect but it was good, nice flavor. I liked mixing it with the rice and so seemed like I had conch fried rice. I have two day I'm sure amazed at the cost of alcohol here 😱. We did not order dessert. There was an unexpected 15% service charge added to the bill. Being the second night here jury is our on recommendation of returning.

    Absolutely worth the short drive from Grace bay to eat here. Waterfront restaurant with well made food (jerk chicken pictured) and the ability to eat far out on the beach. The owner is very kind as well. Highly recommend.
