Lovely local food

Nice restaurant to enjoy local food. Good service, reasonably priced and lovely atmosphere. It has a live band (who are really good and do a mixture of reggae /soca and uk/us pop hits) on a Saturday night. Would recommend.

My experience was slightly marred by a sting on my arm that I had either from a plant or insect. My husband enjoyed his chicken dish, however my pasta was very plain and average. Nice cocktails though. Good prices compared to nearby resorts!

Average food and view. Remember to wear bug repellent especially if you are going for dinner. Drinks were good. We decided to dine primarily due to convenience, we were staying at Fond Doux and were tired and rained out.

I do not claim to be a Food Critic, however, I must commend Chef Vernan... I went into the restaurant this evening having only had a light breakfast earlier in the day.

Stayed at the fond doux plantation where this restaurant is located. On a rainy night instead of driving choose to check this place out. Was not very impressed with the food at all. Much better choices in Soufriere area.

We drove up to the Jardin Cacao for dinner one night. The setting is very atmospheric, one felt you were in a tropical garden. The staff were very efficient and attentive and the food excellent in quality and value for money.
