The restaurant was made from bamboo and very cool and airy. The highlight was when the Band, Future Lights began to play, now you KNEW you... More

My GF and I recently spent 11 days in St Lucia and had the opportunity to try a number of restaurants. This one didn't disappoint. We made a reservation in advance and showed up at 6pm to be seated in a lounge area for a drink. We got a table right in front of the steel drum entertainment. The two... More

We came here on our last night in St. Lucia. The setting is very lush and tropical, with a cacophony of insects, birds and reggae music to accompany you. The people who work here are very friendly, but drinks service was very slow, not arriving until after the appetiser, which kind of negated the tropical drink. The menu was varied,... More

We stayed at Fond Doux for 5 days, and chose the All-Inclusive Meal Plan. It was very affordable even when looking at the prices on their menu. Breakfast was always served with fresh fruit and their cocoa tea, along with their fresh bake (which was delicious). They always provided something different from day to day which was very nice. Lunch... More

We stayed at Fond Doux for 7 days and ate all of our dinners at the Jardin Cacao Restaurant. We chose to have the 4-course dinner for $40 U.S., excluding tax and service charge (which was automatically added). We truly enjoyed the ambiance and service. Kendal and Winifred were behind the small bar on the nights we ate and we... More

The restaurant itself has a nice interior and kind waitresses. You may try there local cuisine which is really good. The prices are also... More

We stayed at Ladere and stepped out down the road one night for dinner at the Jardin Cacao at Fond Doux. The food was very good, maybe a notch below Dasheene at Ladera, but at that level a true bargain on the Island. Service was great. A nice alternative if you want to get away from your resort in the... More

Jardin Cacao is the perfect place for a celebration or those days when, for whatever reason, cooking isn't an option. The great food and relaxing atmosphere make for a perfect Sunday afternoon lime with family and friends. C. Alexander
