One of my favorite places on the island for a reliably tasty and filling meal. Smoked marlin spread is out of this world!

Had a lovely time at the Romance Cafe! Set on one of the few sandy beaches in that part of Dominica, it offers good swimming opportunities, complete with showers and change rooms. the food was very good, reflecting the owner's training in the French Hospitality industry. Great conversation and a welcoming atmosphere. Would definitely go again.

My friend and I were at a loose end one afternoon on our trip to Dominica and decided to head to the Romance Cafe having seen it recommended on the Dominica map which lists the top things to do here.
