Secret Hideaway – Newport

While searching for the best dining out time (i.e. sunset viewing) I stumbled upon Pineapples on the Bay, at the Hyatt in Newport, Rhode Island. Being 100% outdoors, it felt as though we were attending a high end shin dig, with an a la carte menu.

Why Pineapples on the Bay, Hyatt in Newport, Rhode Island?

Dining out is a special part of traveling. It’s easy to go to any restaurant.  But it’s the ones that are unique not only in the culinary selections, but in the actual experience for adults and especially for kids.

This is the first time I have to say that the website doesn’t do this place any justice.

The views are spectacular.

Live Music is pleasant and goes perfectly with the atmosphere

A canon toast to celebrate every night’s sunset (rain or shine) gives kids a jolt and the adults too – for such a tiny canon it’s super loud!

Homemade Fruity Sangria – I know I mentioned this before, but it was sooo good.<

Lighthouse on the premises – I’m a lighthouse fan and having one right there added to the fun.

What’s on the Menu

Seafood, catches of the day are always the hot items here. However, picky eaters and salad junkies get plenty of picks at very affordable prices.

Fish and Chips – I’ve been craving this dish since the minute we arrived to Newport. Maybe it was the yummy scents in the air. And this hit the spot (with lots of vinegar).
