A brand new fine dining restaurant, ‘13˚/59˚’, has opened in Barbados’ brightest new resort, Port Ferdinand Marina and Luxury Residences, from UNNA Luxury Resorts, on the north-west coast of the island. The marina side restaurant, which is named after the longitude and latitude of Barbados, has a beautiful setting overlooking the turquoise waters of the marina and is already receiving excellent reviews on Trip Advisor for its impressive menus and first class service and ambiance.
13˚/59˚is run by Executive Head Chef Andrew Turner, formerly of Michelin starred restaurant, ‘Chapter One’, in Dublin. Andrew was trained in London under Marco Pierre White and later ran his own fine dining restaurant in the Sydney Opera House and went on to head Michelin star restaurants in Ireland.
Andrew‘s menus use the natural ingredients of the four corners of Barbados and its surrounding ocean, in contemporary and innovative style, backed by an exceptional wine list. UNNA’s motto is ‘Luxury with Soul’ and Andrew and Executive Sous Chef Roz Allen have embraced this in creating dishes that that are as beautiful to look at, as they are to eat.
Patrons may choose from the ‘Short Menu’ of five courses, or The ‘Long Menu’ featuring a ten-course extravaganza of tasting dishes; a vegetable tasting menu option is also available. A new Sunday brunch menu, accompanied by live jazz, is also proving popular.
