A Calypso of Cocktails

A Calypso of Cocktails


Posted on Sep 9, 2015

Grotto Beach is gorgeous at the moment!! Spring is certainly in the air and we are loving being open in the evenings again. There’s nothing quite like a walk on the beach, a breathtaking sunset and a cocktail to end the day. And yes…we have a calypso of cocktails on the menu – alcoholic and non-alcoholic. There are the all time favourites like Diaquiries, Mojitos and Bongitos; and we have created a new one for the Summer with Tonic, Peach Schnapps, Mint and La Vierge’s Nymphomane. Come and taste it…and come up with a name for it – your cocktails could be on us! De Tafel van de Chef is fully booked this month so please book now for October to avoid disappointment. Alan Cameron will be playing this Friday from 6pm; we’ll be celebrating Prinsjes Dag on Tuesday the 22nd of September with specials those with a sweet tooth will love; and we’ll be having live entertainment as part of the Whale Fringe Festival at the end of the month. So put on your skirts, shorts and slops and join us for some...

There are daily surfing lessons from the 20th into the New Year and you can even have a massage from Moving Muscles!

Easy does it!

Ease yourself into these gorgeous days of Spring How are you coping with Spring? The heady whiffs of freshly blossomed flowers and fresh ocean breezes; the myriad of colours and abundance of birds and the longer, more active days can be overwhelming. (Not to mention the need to adjust your wardrobe or mustering up the courage to expose your not-quite-summer-ready self to the world.) Relax! Ease into Spring with long walks on Grotto to get back into shape followed by a healthy and delightful meal at Dutchies. Bring your friends, the kids and the dogs and be sociable. Our convivial Indonesian Rijsttafel is the perfect opportunity to catch up with friends, there is light and inspiring music for you to enjoy on a Sunday and our Chefs are filled with the joys of Spring and creating some scrumptious new dishes. (Try the new Risotto we’re preparing this Wednesday!) Before you know it you’ll be ready to put on your dancing shoes and swing into summer with Manouche who are performing on the 3rd of October. Remember to take a happy snap when you visit Dutchies and post it on our Facebook page or tweet it to enter our photo competition. There’s a winner every month from September to...
