Great Architectural Frontage to this building as was typical of the period that it was built. There are not too many local buildings in the centre of Castries that are from this Era which is such a shame as this is a great cultural iconic building - see Photo. Have a look when in the area as it is not... More

No great shakes inside, though charming. The exterior architecture was worth seeing and the people who worked there were helpful in pointing us in the direction of the restaurant we had heard about.

The pleasant smiles & offers to help are a refreshing reminder... More
