Dining Prices

Hi- can someone please tell me what to expect as far as prices for meals? I'm thinking of staying at Sammy T's but have no idea what to budget for food. What are the prices like in the food stores?

thank you

You can expect prices to be quite high, since just about everything -- with the exception of locally caught fish -- is shipped in from the U.S. Expect to pay 50% than you pay at home. Grocery stores are sparsely stocked, and you can never plan on having what you are looking for, so flexibility is key.

We travel to Cat usually 3 - 4 times a year, have done so since 96. Our food budget is 50 USD per person per day. Sometimes we spend it, sometimes not. If you 'dine' out the prices will not exceed this budget. Sammy's place is real nice, very quiet, we made reservations back in 7/05 for dinner, cannot remember the cost but the food, service and ambience was great.

Do stop at the Blue Bird, great for lunch.
