Mero Beach is about 25-30 minutes from the port of Roseau. We hired a private taxi (Didier's Taxi...Mr. Didier was amazing, efficient and fully licensed). When we got to the Cafe all of the lounge chairs were taken so we rented a table and two straight back chairs for our 2-3 hour stay at a cost of $10. Our belongings... More

Wow- the food here is homemade and amazing. I had the ham and cheese sandwich and my husband had the chicken sandwich. The portions were huge. They were served with sweet potatoes, pineapple, and a bit of salad with carrots. It was all very delicious. I highly recommend this great place which is located directly on the beach.

Unfortunately, we didn't get to eat lunch here. We got to Mero Beach around 8:30 a.m. We were brought here by Pepper on a private tour while we were in Dominica on the Royal Princess. The beach was deserted, but Frederique, although not officially open, offered us lounge chairs and coffee and toast before she went to market to get... More

This café is owned by Frederique Huard who undoubtedly knows her cuisine. A French lady, utterly charming and welcoming to all who visit. The style of the café has an air of the slightly bohemian with tables tops painted by gifted artists living in Dominica. Apart from the delicious and well priced food on offer, there is a wonderful deck... More

The French Chef is a lovely gifted woman! I have never cared for fish except tuna drowned in mayo. I made a promise on this trip to Dominica that I would emerge myself into the culture, be adventurous, and try new things. I am SO VERY GLAD I decided after being hesitant about it, to try fish. I spoke with... More

Romance Cafe is one of our favourite places to go on the weekend. We live in Dominica. We always make an effort to make it to Mero Beach every few weeks, so we can relax and enjoy the nice ambiance and wholesome meals that Frederique and her crew prepare. It's always a joy to be at Romance Cafe! The kids... More

Really nice spot to have a meal and drink and watch sunset. We were there for lunch as we were having a relaxing day on Mero beach and later had a few drinks. Staff was friendly and they served honest fresh local food. Very tasty. The cafe also sells books from Dominican and Caribbean authors. I look forward to reading... More
