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.

Delightful oasis with great food and outstanding service in a lush plantation setting. Flowers, giant plants abound; crickets, and tree frogs will serenade you as you dine. Menu changes 3 times a week.
