We took a short break at Fond Doux to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised when we turned up for dinner on the night to find our table beautifully decorated with flowers spelling out 'CONGRATS'. That was very touching.

We ate at Jardin after our tour of the Fond Doux Plantation (an enjoyable walking tour) and found the food to be enjoyable. We were served a buffet of local dishes with chicken, ground provisions (potato, carrots, etc) and vegetables. Dishes had a nice spice. Seating was very pleasant in a covered outdoor venue and service was attentive.
