Iguana Cafe


The name alone might send the children in droves, but not to fret — the Iguana Café is not serving up actual iguanas. Located in the town of Portsmouth, this boutique eatery (think a dozen seats maximum) is mighty on flavor, loyal customers and island cuisine. Most people will claim this is a shack on the water, and the description is not too far off.

Tuna, lobster, fresh fish, the owner serving, his wife cooking — it’s all local and extremely niche and authentic. Don’t forget to nibble on the bread and tiny treats that come out before the meal. The intimacy is part of the charm, and families are welcome.
