When visiting Mero Beach, make sure to eat at Romance Cafe! Frederique knows just how to make your day special. Her food is creative, tasty and very affordable. I go there as often as I can. You should do the same. I highly recommend it.

I would regularly go to Romance Cafe whilst living in Dominica for the last 15 months. The staff, especially the owner Frederqiue, are all so friendly. The food is delicious as they use all fresh local ingredients prepared with French flavours and flair. I recommend trying the 'dasheen balls'! Relaxing on the sun lounges on the beach with a fresh...

Really on the beach, sand in your toes kind of place. Food was excellent, staff was friendly and well trained and owner is a "gem".

We headed to Mero on a drive along Dominica's coast and were immediately charmed by the area. It reminded us in many ways of the little surf towns that dot California's central/southern coast; the area was quaint and the buildings were blasted by the sea. We popped into Romance Cafe rather randomly and were very happy with our decision. I... More

We often eat at Romance cafe as we are lucky enough to live on the beautiful Island of Dominica. Mero beach has a great vibe on sunday....Reggae on the Beach at Romance is fantastic. Anyway the menu is full of good choices like locally caught fish and organic vegitables but for me the roasted pork is my all time favourite.... More

A good restaurant serving delicious,healthy food in a a relaxed open and friendly atmosphere. It is right smack on this very popular beach with its unique black volcanic sand. It is usually filled on a Sunday and occasionally it is accompanied by some local entertainment be it reggae artist or a creole band. There are ample beach chairs at the... More

Love the tables and chairs, really fitting with the beach front location. Had a delicious fresh fish salad, the fish was just caught that morning and the whole thing was to die for! Very reasonalbe prices too, and included use of sun loungers. Would definately return!

Frederica was so very nice to us on our visit. She is full of knowledge about the island and her cooking is out of this world. If you are going to Mero, you must stop here.

We live in Soufriere in the jungle. We try to go to Mero Beach every chance we get to get some beach time in. Every time we go there, the best place to be is always Romance Cafe. The ambiance, the service and the food is always great. We highly recommend it! They also throw great Reggea parties every so... More

Really enjoyed meeting Frederica, the owner who shared her personal (secret no more) rum with us at the end of our second amazing dinner at her café on at Mero beach. Great environment, truly amazing cuisine. A highlight of our trip to Dominica, went twice, though an hour from where we were staying...worth the trip.
