We stayed at the plantation but we only had breakfast and one lunch here. We were starving from touring all day and had a late lunch around 2 or 3pm. We ordered the chicken roti and it was very dry. Service was really slow and the servers were busy eating French fries. We had to request extra sauce and it... More

Helpful Tip You can purchase a package of a tour with a buffet lunch, we didn't discover this until after we had eaten lunch there. The restaurant is in a nice well presented peaceful spot up in the hills, the service was great and the 2 salads we had were excellent (Tropical and Greek)

Our tour group from Carnival Sailings stopped here for a creole buffet lunch. The food was pretty good, about 6 trays of different foods. Salad, rice, fish, beans, banana pie and chicken legs, the chicken was really good. Servers were nice & polite.

Went to this restaurant for all meals while we stayed here! While they are experimenting with new menus, we found everything to be great. (Especially the desserts! The souffle and creme brulee were worth waiting for!) Our first night, the rack of lamb was terrific! Some of the portions were off - the lunch pasta was way too large, but... More

The service was very friendly and fairly efficient. The food was tasty, especially the lamb and chicken dishes. The drinks were also reasonably priced. The only... More
