CNN Travel picked a New England eatery as one of the world’s best waterfront restaurants

You'll find it in Rhode Island.

At the southern tip of Rhode Island, another Relais & Châteaux property, the Ocean House (1 Bluff Ave., Watch Hill, 401-584-7000,, is an exact replica of the inn that welcomed guests to tony Watch Hill for 136 years, from 1868 until 2003. The rambling yellow building with multiple balconies, porches, and staircases overlooks the Atlantic, Block Island, and Montauk, N.Y. Furnishings combine British Colonial, Early American, and New England coastal themes in sunny yellows and blues. A “deluxe king’’ room goes for $895 in July and August, but you can book the same room for $400 in January. A Winter Wonderland package is an even better deal; starting at $320, weekdays only, it includes breakfast, skating rink tickets, and hot chocolate or cider. Spa packages offer similar discounts. All guests have access to complimentary afternoon refreshments, culinary and art classes.

If your goals this summer include eating seaside with a killer view, a restaurant in Rhode Island was just named among the best waterfront restaurants in the world by CNN Traveler.

CNN Traveler named Coast, located at the Ocean House resort in Watch Hill, R.I., among the world’s best waterfront restaurants. It was the only New England restaurant on the list of 26 eateries.

Here’s what the publication had to say about Coast:

“Coast, the bright, clean-lined restaurant from The Ocean House, offers the quintessential New England experience: the freshest flavors of the Rhode Island coast and vast, unobstructed vistas of the Atlantic Ocean. Its delectable vegetarian menu, hailing from nearby farms, is tempting even for carnivores: spicy fava beans, maple-glaze sweet potatoes, Maine grains spelt gnocci and white chocolate cremeux.”
