The most striking thing about the Fond Doux Holiday Plantation itself is the natural setting. We stayed for a couple of nights after we hiked the Gros Piton and it was just easier to eat in at the Jardin Cacao than go to the nearby resorts (Ladera, etc) or to the town of Soufriere (about 15 minutes' drive away).

We stayed at the Fond Doux Plantation for a week and this restaurant was very good. We had several dinners planed at other places around the island, but this restaurant was just as good as most of the others we went to and it was far less expensive. There aren't a lot of cocktail choices, but they are good. And... More

When the locals tell you it's a good place to eat...it's a good place to eat. Ribs, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Mango-Tomato Salad, Pumpkin Soup, Kebabs, and fresh bread. We also had frozen chocolate-y drinks for dessert. The ambiance was like a beautiful island escape in the middle of the forest- very romantic! Out of all the resorts we encountered on... More
