"lovely flavours"

We visited this restuarant on a visit to Gros Islet by local water taxi. After a litle tour of the village decided to give this resturant a try. Pleased to say we were not dissappointed buffet a lunch so quite a few local dishes to try which were all very tasty. Lovely staff.

Stopped in on Friday evening (same night as the Gross Islet Street Party) just felt everyonenwas going through the motions of serving another Creole Style meal. I had the Dorado grilled and this was very dry and mostly bones. The Creole bits and pieces were nothing special. My wife had the shrimps which were ok but at $ECD 60 so... More

Restaurant in on the roadside in the heart of the village. Great ambiance. Prices were good considering the quality and quantity of the food. Would highly recommend if you're looking for a nice, inexpensive,... More

We went there for dinner, the restaurant was a little dim but still very comfortable to be in! The staff were friendly, food was lovely and good value for money. Recommend the Conch fritter and the Grill Dorado (it comes with small sides of salad, rice, plantain, mac n cheese, bread fruit etc).

We explained to the waitress that we didn't want much and she suggested we shared a fish dinner. It was perfect, Dorrado with rice, veg and... More

One of the best sunshine afternoons with family at Golden Taste Restaurant, topped up by a fabulous meal served by very friendly staff. Taxi Driver and Tour Guide King Nigel recommended this place and the food did not disappoint! Ribs, and Dorado - what can I say, The Best on the island!
