We stopped at Jardin Cacao for dinner and loved the design of the place. Very beautifully designed and decorated. The service was attentive and prompt and the food was tasty and beautifully presented. The food, service and prices are very comparable with the other high-end resort restaurants in the area (Dasheene, Boucan, Hummingbird, etc).

My boyfriend and I stayed at Fond Doux in October 2014 and this was pretty much the only place we ate because 1) it was the only place at Fond Doux and we were lazy not to venture to other restaurants, and 2) it was delicious! I am a vegetarian and there was always a vegetarian option. The vegetarian lasagna... More

this is an intimate place in the Fond Doux plantation with beautiful wooden accents, a live band playing (on Saturday evening) and good authentic Caribbean delicacies. The seafood pasta, fresh fish, vegetable platter were all excellent and served in large quantities. The price is decent for comparable area restaurants at Ladera, Stonefield, Chocolat etc.

We really enjoyed the intimate rainforest setting of the restaurant. The menu offered many selections that featured local culinary traditions for exceptional prices. Our food was truly amazing. We really enjoyed our visit and will be sure to... More

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

We dined at Fond Doux's restaurant a couple of times during our recent stay there and both occasions were an enjoyable experience. The menu was a bit limited but featured different items each day. 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
