Had a lovely evening here a few nights ago. The restaurant has a great ambience and staff were all very friendly and helpful. Cocktails and desserts were fab but, as we are both vegetarian, it would have been good to see more than one vegetarian main course option. Would return for the cocktails alone though

I haven't had a Caesar salad in quiet a while; but observed one guest ordered one then another and so not being one to have dinner, I decided to try one of those. My exclamation was the title of this review...croton freshly made, I later found out; lettuce fresh from their organic garden. I also overheard one guest requesting some... More

We went here for a change of scenery from the resort where we were staying. We had a lovely dinner in a rainforest-y setting. I don't remember everything we had but there were prawns and other seafood with an excellent Puilly Fuisse. Service was excellent.

We ate here one night during our stay at the Fond Doux resort. The food was delicious, the service was decent, the ambiance was charming, rustic and romantic. Lots of flowers, low light, island breeze. Entrees were around $25 USD, with generous portions. Drinks were $5-10 USD. Service could be a bit more attentive, but other than that, a great... More

One of our favorite lunches in Soufriere, as it was affordable (much more so than just about anywhere else), delicious, and near many of the local attractions. The lunch buffet is amazing.

Overpriced food for the quality you get. the food is all local which you can get in the town of soufriere for half the price. The drinks here are amazing though. very reasonably priced and very tasty!

The setting of this restaurant is lovely- open air on the beautiful Fond Doux plantation, and had a live singer who sounded truly great, but the service was only ok and the food was expensive but not great. I had a curried octopus appetizer that had great flavor, but was extremely tough, followed by the catch of the day (mahi-mahi)... More
