“Wonderful food in a perfect setting”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

We came here twice, the first time just to look around and had a drink while we watched the rain, we loved the setting so much we returned in the week for lunch. the food and service were very good. We are vegetarian and they made us a special creole platter that was great. Not sure what all it was but it was very good! We walked around the gardens and this place is beautiful with warm water pools and waterfalls.

“Papillote Rainforest Restuarnt a legacy in Dominica”
Reviewed March 25, 2011

Papillote Rainforest Resturant is one of THE must things to do in Dominica,
Not only for the food but for the dedicated stuff that have been taking care of guests for so many years, preparing great meals and delicious desserts.
The garden surrounding is absolutely beautiful an art work of pools, springs and flowers,so manicured but still so natural.
Recommended to come an hour early and enjoy a hot bath with a good rum punch.
and don't miss Anne, the lady of the house, the creator and spirit of the place.

“Nice local food, well prepared, exceptional setting”
Reviewed March 3, 2011

We ate here every night for a week while staying at the hotel - never felt the urge to stray (which is what we usually do). While we wish the fish selection had been a little more varied (it was mostly "dolphin"), we did eat flying fish, goat, rabbit, local freshwater shrimp and all sorts of vegetables I had never even heard of. The food was always very tasty and very well prepared and seasoned. The "barbecue night" was disappointing - as it always is in my experience. Delicious fruit juices (incl. sorrel and tamarind). Rum punches (fruit, peanut or coconut) that knock you off your feet! And very gracious service in a pleasant open-air setting. We were confused about the meal plan vs. a-la-carte options and were ultimately overcharged - make sure you clarify that you are ordering a-la-carte if you choose that option; otherwise they'll charge you for a whole 4-course meal (Soup, Salad, Entree, Dessert) - even if you skip the salad and dessert. But who sweats the little details in a gorgeous place like this?

“Great Dasheen appetizers”
Reviewed January 2, 2011

We were told to try the local dasheen (tastes like potato) appetizers and they were awesome! Beautiful setting and view. Relaxed, but attentive service. Local beer was great also

“Gorgeous setting, great food”
Reviewed October 26, 2010

I have been eating at Papillote's restaurant for many years. It's still a winner. Dinner is a delightful experience - friendly and informal with excellent local food - lots of vegetables so vegetarians are happy. Make sure you have the dasheen puffs if you're there for lunch and the rum punch is world famous. And apart from enjoying the food you get to look out at Papillote's great garden.
