Bugaloo’s 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.

    You cannot go wrong at Bugaloos. Food is fresh, especially the Conch & whole fish. The Fried Fish sandwich was seasoned WELL & was light but filling! You MUST get the Conch salad! There are other delicious Conch dishes but the FRESH (they're kept alive in a water tank) Conch salad is their signature & staple! It could use a little more acid & seasoning but we LOVE spice & flavor. The mild seasoning did allow the Conch to just BE! The wings are POPPIN! Everything else are nice sides. Service is top notch, casual, efficient & personal! Drinks are strong & the entire vibe is easy but stellar! It is in a desolate & sandy area (& is right across the street lot from Omar's) so have comfy shoes that are easy to clean. Keep a mini umbrella just in case a quick shower decides to visit, as most seating's outside. LOVE Bugaloos!

    Great food, beautiful natural setting, friendly and prompt service and nice island music. We had a memorable time here after a day at Sapodilla beach. We sat on the sand at a table built around a tree. So cozy and the view of the ocean not too far away was amazing. Was almost tempted to sit at one of the table that were placed in the water. Food was fresh and delicious and our entire group agreed. One of our best meals here in Turks & Caicos.

    Stopped here while exploring and had lunch. Beautiful views of the water. Food was good if a little pricey. Wife had the crunchy conch dumplings and I had the garlic shrimp.
