Beautiful? Yes. But the walks are extremely steep, even for fit people. Hot, incredibly humid and did I mention insanely steep? We had two weeks on the island and I still wish we had skipped it.

A pleasant walk round this spice garden viewing all the trees and vegetation whilst our guide explained what each offers in the away of cooking and medical remedies. Entry was 12 Euros per person but very interesting and worth considering a visit.

Had very nice sunday lunch here. On sundays they have creole buffet menu which are grilled fish, chicken curry, vegetable curry, rice and bowls of different salads. All the ingredient comes from their garden, so i am never worried about freshness. Try if you can!

Please do not support this place! I was shocked to see birds, turtles and other animals in small dirty cages with minimal care!! HORRIBLE !!! Wish they would stop abusing animals and focus on their spice grounds. They could make more money selling spices! SHAME ON U!!

This restaurant is a little out of the way and higher up in the hills but worth going there. I enjoyed an excellent Creole lunch and then even got a little guided tour into the herb gardens when I discussed with the Maitre the pros and cons of cooking with fresh herbs and spices.

The place allows for a nice and easy walk (some more difficult or challenging are available). The highlight for me was the lunch. Natural products, tasty with a beautiful view. Be careful with your car on the way up!

We had a lunch here. The road is very narrow and difficult to find, as many people already wrote. But the view is wonderful and the food as well. Reasonably priced but the taxes and service charge (together about 25%) are not included. I can recommend the cold citronelle tea.
