Good Food

We had lunch at the Ginger Bread Cafe twice. The Spicy chicken was very good for the first lunch when we had Bradley as our server. He was very pleasant. Second lunch along comes George plops down the menu and I had to force a good morning out of him. He tells us we have to wait fifteen minutes... read more

Can't beat the convenience for having this on property, but very mediocre at best. In fact, we were on the island for 7 days and had a very hard time finding any really good food. Best place was a local French Bakery. Finally found something we enjoyed on our second to last day.

The man who was working that morning was RUDE. He didn't greet us, so we sat ourselves. He brought us menus, walked off without a word. When I asked a question, he was gruff in his response. I began to order, then decided, to heck with them, obviously they didn't value my business, so we left!

Eating here was a disappointment. waitress seem to be having a bad day and came across as being unfriendly. A bit surprise since there are many positive reviews. I'm a foodie and rely on Tripadvisor for good eats. Had a grouper sandwich and it was very greasy. Piña Colada was so water down that it had no sweetness. I don't... More

if you don't have a car and you don't want to eat at Divi Little Bay walk on the beach down to this great little place for dinner. Our party had the Lobster Thermidor, Seafood Pasta and fresh catch of day. Lobster was very good, pasta food, fresh catch was overcooked.. someone near by had curry chicken that smelled delicious....

The food was average but fine for a breakfast or lunch. The mixed drinks were watered down but the beer was ok. The café is open air and at times you have to deal with flies.

Very nice little restaurant located on the grounds of Belair Hotel. The food is good and the prices reflect a good honest meal. Great burgers, good kosher hotdogs, but the ribs are tasty and meaty. I would definitely return, service was ok, not fast but on island time it was ok.
