We went here based on reviews by others and also, as vegetarians, because they have a vegetarian menu. The setting is beautiful, on a ridge overlooking the ocean and Piton. The dining area is on a deck overlooking the water- sweet setting. Drinks were more reasonably priced than some places around. The food, though and the final price at the end of the meal left me hungry and feeling ripped off.
My husband got a salad of tomatoes and red onions and pesto pasta. The salad was literally some sliced unripe tomatoes and red onions with no lettuce. The pasta was so overcooked and mushy and the pesto was not fresh; probably from a jar. I ordered pumpkin soup and asked about creole soya stew. Our waitress was impatient with the description and made it sound good so i ordered it. The waitress was in a hurry because she was the only server for all the tables. My pumpkin soup was ok but tasted like it was from a can of condensed pumpkin soup. Maybe it was floury. The soya stew was inedible and came with breadfruit that was starchy mushy, carrots that were ok and a piece of sad looking broccoli. The stew was rubbery and brown and tasted awful. I couldn't eat it. I was told later that soya is made on the island and is supposed to be soft but can come out rubbery when not made well. Anyway, I would recommend staying away from this dish! For one drink each, an appetizer and dinner, our bill was $96! And i left hungry and nauseas from my meal. The waitress took about half an hour to bring our check. She inquired about my dish and I told her I couldn't eat it. There was no reduction on the check. We won't be back again! Maybe their meat dishes are better. A place that kills pasta though has me worried.
The music was live and the band was fun.
