We came here 2 nights out of 3. Fantastic food. Very fresh. My husband eats meat and fish but as a veggie I still had plenty of choice and the veg was great. Highly recommend for excellent value and flavour.

We turned off the main road into Gros Islet after visiting the park at Rodney Bay, on our way back to the Soufriere area resort. Not knowing the area, and in search of good local food, we asked our driver to ask some local pedestrians where there was a nearby place with good food. They suggested Golden Taste, so off... More

Mega yum!!!! The ribs were honestly the best I can remember ever having! The rum lunch was the best on the island and the Callaloo soup just amazing (I ate this soup several times on the island and this wa any favorite). They are slightly busy on Sundays as it is the only big restaurant open, but they will make... More

Great food and large portions, We ate here twice on a five day stay..Prices are reasonable and US$ and Credit Cards are welcome. The barbaqued ribs were the best I have had anywhere in a long time.. If you visit St. Lucia you will want to try this place.

While on vacation in St Lucia, we wanted a place to good and meet our locaal friends and get some local cuisine. Everyone at the hotel said Golden Taste the place to go. The place lived up to expectations and then some. The food was great although we all ended up getting the backed chicken and everyone left food on... More

Talk about outstanding food! My wife and I requested our guide to take us to an authentic St. Lucian cuisine spot. This was it! Service was very friendly, very fast, and huge, delicious portions. We enjoyed it so much that we ordered two more to go for dinner again that night! This is a must eat spot in a very... More

I decided to try this location on the wrong day, on the day of pinehill fun walk and the wait for food was 30 minutes. The world doesn't stop because of a large order for a walk. Hunger waits for no man!

Nice restaurant serving local food and a good place to chill out and watch the jump up get started. Perhaps a little pricey for the area, but I always enjoy my meal and the service is ok. Incidentally, it was the only place that I could get a gin & tonic to keep my wife happy ( after her 3... More
