This is the ideal place to be on a Saturday night. The band was amazing, the food was delicious. Hats off to the Chef. I will be coming back for the ribs.

The facility was clean and the food was good. At the time of our lunch visit, there weren't that many authentic food choices. I also found their choice of Country music strange. Overall not bad

Food was just ok. We had high expectations since the rest of the plantation exceeded our hopes. There are a lot better food options/restaurants nearby at neighboring resorts, but not bad for a quick/convenient bite to eat. Lunch was better than dinner. Nice atmosphere,

The drinks are incredible and the food was delicious. The ambiance is very romantic and they often had steel drum entertainment to set the island tone. LOVED IT!

We stayed at Fond Doux so we at here several times (lunch and dinner). We enjoyed the atmosphere. Very relaxing, great service with a smile (but, expect 'island time' service). We were quite disappointed with the fact that the menu was small and didn't change much. We were told that every day or two we would find a new menu.... More

It was nice but service was very slow. Food was just ok. It is a little more reasonably priced than other places in the area. Food is expensive everywhere on this side of the island. Lunch was better than dinner. We stayed here and LOVED the plantation but food was just OK

The open verandah style in dark wood is inviting. The restaurant offers a lunch buffet, but we chose to order a la carte. The food was very tasty and the portions generous. The baguette sandwich that my husband ordered was perfect and my local creole fish dish was wonderful. Thankfully, the lush forest surroundings and friendly birds made me forget... More
