This is a local restaurant in Gros Islet that serves local food. My wife and I went and she had the garlic shrimp whilst I had the ribs. The food was served with salad, plantain, rice and ground provisions. Both the shrimp and ribs were very tasty and we plan to visit again. The service was quick and the staff... More

Local carribean cuisine which was recommended by our concierge. Huge portions; food was good but not great. Prices are a little steep in my opinion, but everything in St. Lucia is expensive. Drinks were cheap. My favorite dish was the lambi, which had great flavor. The snapper dish was a little disappointing. Each entree came with a huge load of... More

My husband and I ate here twice while attending the St Lucia Jazz Festival in May, 2014. The portions are enormous (more food than I could eat) and everything was really good. The service was also great - my favorite is the shrimp creole - large shrimp fresh from the ocean! The price can't be beat at $52 EC for... More

I went there for lunch with a friend and call about 2 hours before to place the order. When I got there I still had a 20 min wait before I could get my food. The food is not as good as it use to be and they really need to take care of the old smell coming into the... More

Golden Taste was recommended by our Hotel owner and so my girlfriend and I decided to take her up on the suggestion. Located in a very easy to find spot in Gros Islet we went on Friday also the same day as the Street party is held. We found the food to be nothing less than that of the name... More

Local fish or meat, and fresh local vegetables that we hadn't excperience before. Good value, but a bit "same ish" each time we visited.

In my opinion this is another one of these cases where a place gets way too good reviews just because of supposedly decent / low prices. This is a shack type places with authentic caribbean atmosphere. There were some tourists having dinner and some local having drinks. All things considered the food was not bad, but it certainly also wasn't... More

Here it is always a great food experience away from home. The space is very intimate and the food is always well presented and in great portions. Warning.....specify what "sides" one wants or the plate will come with ALL the sides.....no objection here if the appetite is big. A lovely place for ribs, fish and bouillon(a local soup that's not... More

A good meal, nice atmosphere, reasonable price, Caribbean taste, in a small town, accessible by bus, easy parking if it's not on the busy Friday night, just right
