Flavorful meal

This place was good, for drinks and/or dinner. The food was very tasty, with lots of different spices. The sides were excellent. The only problem we had was the fish was slightly over-cooked and dry. The staff was very friendly with us. I would go here again.

We really enjoyed the food and the service. We had lunch. The Spare ribs were great and cost 40 ECD, my daughter really enjoyed these, my wife like the Baked Chicken and cost 40 ECD. I had the Dorado fish, which did have a few bones and cost 35 ECD. If you see the pictures I have supplied, none of... More

The ribs here are amazing and we had a great night out. There is a nice local vibe to this place as it is in a small building in Gros Islet near the waterfront. The food is amazing and so are the prices. The staff are so kind and friendly. This place is a must go to if you have... More

Visited here with friends. The atmosphere can be overwhelming as its flooded with locals in a rural setting. The place seems shady but the experience was totally local. Food lacked salt but value for money was good. The service was slow though. Not a place for the faint of heart. We paid 50ec for a fulling meal for one.

Golden Taste, set in the centre of Gros Islet village, is a must for travellers who want to experience great local food at sensible prices in the middle of a village of real Lucian life.

One of our favorite restaurants in Gros Inlet ... the baked chicken is really good ,,, the salt-fish is good, but the ribs are over the top ... If you pick a table, then get the waitress's name and talk to her a little, service is great and you'll have a good time .... keep in mind "island time" ...... More

Stay away! We went there for lunch and had such a frosty reception from the waitress behind the counter. Apparently we needed to order from the counter as her royal highness was not planning to come to our table. We figured this out after we were ignored and a gentleman walked up to the counter after we had been sitting... More

We ate at Golden Taste on our first night in Gros Islet. Service was not only slow but any time a local wanted anything, we went to the back of the queue again. This left a bad taste in my mouth, despite the food being quite nice when it finally arrived. People rave about the conch fritter but my husband... More
