Winemakers 2010 – Peg Leg’s Landing at Nanny Cay

Peg Leg’s Landing at Nanny Cay – Five Course Gourmet Meal
Thirty years ago, Peg Leg’s Landing was built at the water’s edge on Nanny Cay.
With amazing views over Sir Francis Drake Channel and the marina, the restaurant offers a unique atmosphere to enjoy casual waterfront dining. Great drinks and an eclectic menu of delightful tastes make Peg Leg’s Landing a haven for all.
Serving marina guests is the primary concern at Peg Leg’s Landing, but the restaurant has become so much more. Peg Leg’s Landing is a place where people meet and unwind after a long work week or a long sail. It’s also the place where tourists can grasp that Caribbean feeling and a true taste of Caribbean cuisine.
Chef Vaughan Grant is from Antigua and his culinary team are all from the Caribbean, so Nanny Cay is one of just a few places that offers true Caribbean fusion. The delicious menu items range from Tortola Roti to homemade crab cakes to pineapple risotto and much more. Small appetite? No problem, Peg Leg’s offers a finger-food menu at the bar and in the lounge and a brand-new cocktail menu.
Peg Leg’s Landing serves a taste you will remember!
