Ah no, I meant the destinations I cited were really expensive (and best known as financial centres)! Bermuda and the Cayman Islands are the most expensive places to live in the world, bar Monaco, I think. The original comments suggested that the reader was being picky by avoiding them, so thought they were down-market.

I think most small Caribbean/Atlantic islands have the same issue with expensive, imported food. Grand Cayman is supposedly known as a gourmet destination, and does have some nice restaurants, but I wouldn’t go there just for the food. Rather it’s very anonymous and regulated, so you can sit on the white beaches without being approached by vendors, etc, and get in the car and drive to the shops and other parts of the island pretty much like you can at home without worrying about wandering into a “bad” area. We like that, we’re not keen on being restricted to a resort.
