“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

One of my favourites places to dine in St Lucia is Jardin Cacao. The staff is very nice and friendly, the meals are delicious and the natural settings of Fond Doux Plantation help to create a great atmosphere.

Every time I visit St Lucia I go to Jardin Cacao for lunch or dinner and I always want to return.

“Wonderful staff, environment, and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

My friends and I stayed at Fond Doux for a week recently and did not want to leave. The staff is incredibly friendly and really want you to see the best of the island. Breakfast was great with a wide selection of fruit, bread, and even an omelette station! Lunch was great too, but dinner definitely takes the trophy. Every single course was very fresh and delicious. This was definitely an incredible experience and my friends and I are very happy that we decided to stay at Fond Doux instead of a resort during our visit to St. Lucia. We will definitely be back someday!

“Creative and Delicious Fare with Local Influence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We stayed at Fond Doux recently for six nights and had the all inclusive package and enjoyed every last bite! For breakfast we had fresh fruit from the plantation and daily fresh squeezed juices with local breads and an egg station. For lunch you could do the buffet or order of the menu and oddly enough I was absolutely in love with their chicken salad sandwich----in St. Lucia they love their chicken and do a great job cooking it up! Dinner, however, was the show stopper. With three courses and an excellant staff, you dont want to miss out. Perched amidst their own jungle/botanical garden setting with lanterns overhead you have a great setting to begin with. We tried various things, but the catch of the day was always impressive and the lamb chops to die for. Tasty pina colodas and wide selection of rum dont hurt either!

“Amazing and a Variety of Options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We were lucky enough to stay at the Fond Doux resort and eat at this restaurant every night. The menu changed every night and there was not one meal that I didn't find amazing. On Thursday, they had a BBQ and it was wonderful (I'm from the southern US, so we know BBQ).
I highly recommend this restaurant, the servers, Beverly and Regina and the bartender, Jared!
