Excellent traditional Caribbean cuisine with a special twist. Very friendly restaurant run by Ruby and Boots. Need to book by 5pm for supper the same night as they shop for fresh ingredients. Best callalloo soup on the island and great homemade bread. Best lambie we’ve...had on the island so far too.More

This is a husband and wife team that run Boots (Boots is the actual chef and Ruby is the taxi driver, if required, and also front of house/server). The restaurant is the garden room adjoined to the front of their own home with a few...tables, which is very nicely done. Good ambience. We went on a Monday evening and were the only ones there. Open whenever required for lunch and dinner, but must ring to make a reservation as they do close on certain special days. Ruby picked myself and my husband up from Coyaba Beach Resort for 50EC (round trip). Food was a set menu for 95EC each, with a choice for the main course. My husband has food intolerances so mentioned these when making the reservation a few days before and Boots was able to serve my husband other options, which was excellent both in service and with the taste of the food. It was a 5 course menu, all small portions though, but at the end of the meal was full and satisfied. 1 Pumpkin Soup 2 Sea Egg (Sea Urchin) 3 TLC (Tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber) 4 Lambie with local veg (this was my choice of the main course) 5 Cake and ice cream I also had 2 glasses of Ruby's rum punch which was delicious and strong. As we were the only ones there, it did feel a little rushed as soon as we had finished eating, the plates were cleared away and the next course was there, but even so, that didn't spoil the evening at all. Then when we were ready, Ruby took us back to our hotel after Boots came and had a quick chat with us. Thorougly enjoyed the evening, quite expensive, but worth it for a very different and enjoyable experience eating local food and enjoying local hospitality.More

Had a late lunch. Place is run by a nice couple. The food was good local cuisine and included the side dishes. Right on one of the main roads.

If you just want a really easygoing dinner served by some very sweet locals (and aren't expecting fine dining) this is a must. We had the prix fixe dinner, 95 EC per person, and sprung for the pickup/drop-off for only an extra 50 EC—totally worth...it. We had a nice chat with Ruby during the short ride from True Blue. The restaurant's ambiance is very homey, and we were the only diners there on a Monday night. Chef Boots welcomed us and let us pick our main, and Ruby came to take our drink orders. As other reviewers mention, the rum punch really is one of the most (if not the most) delicious you'll ever have in your life—order it, but be careful because it's stronger than it tastes! The food came at a great pace compared to a lot of other Grenadian restaurants. We started off with a nice pumpkin soup which was good but nothing spectacular. Next was sea egg (sea urchin) on a crispy bed of fried sea moss which was excellent if a little salty. Then a small salad which was more of a palate cleanser than anything. For our entree, we all chose the fried lambie steak (conch), which came with an assortment of local veggies like breadfruit, cassava, callaloo, etc. It was excellent, and while lambie is a Grenadian staple this one was special. We finished off with some fruit cake, vanilla ice cream, and banana, which were decent. After our main, Chef Boots came outside to chat with us and ask about the meal. He takes great pride in cooking with local ingredients and said his favorite thing to cook is lambie. His secret lambie recipe, which he was reticent to divulge too much about, took fifteen years to perfect! If you come with the right expectations you'll have a wonderful dinner. Highly recommended.More

Fantastic evening with a wonderfully friendly couple serving simple, local, VERY tasty food. Just a delight. They need more diners - get out of your hotel and try the real thing!

I have only had take-away lunches however, Boots Cuisine offers authentic Grenadian Cooking. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is interested in our local dishes.

This is a very simple, local roadside restaurant and it could use a good clearing up. But the people are nice and friendly and the food is surprisingly good. They offer various caribbean dishes for lunch for a very reasonable price.

This was an experience! You eat in a small room with five tables in the owners home. There is nothing fancy here so if you are looking for a refined experience then this is not for you. You are brought a soup, an appetizer ,...and a salad. You have the choice of three entrees. All are local cuisine. Everything on the menu was excellent, including all the vegetables. I would highly recommend this place if you want something a little different.More
