This place is as interesting as a nature documentary can get on a Friday night. The service is poor and the prices are a little overrated for this type of establishment.I am guessing the word ''retreat'' also implies or ensures substandard product/service.

I am very sorry that you were unhappy with our restaurant rates which are in ECC *Eastern Caribbean Currency and are competitive with recognized restaurants throughout the Island.
Our Government requires that a 15% value added tax be levied upon food served in registered restaurants. There are some places that operate without this constraint and without employees or a kitchen on the premises and these places can be less costly.

We do have various options on our menu for people who have a limited budget

My wife and I had just finished touring the spectacular Trafalgar Falls and noticed the sign for the Papillote restaurant nearby. We were seated on a beautiful veranda with incredible views of the mountain valley and lush tropical gardens surrounding Papillote. The food and beverages were wonderful. They turn a ham and cheese sandwhich into a work of art. The service is great. We were especially delighted to be entertained by the colorful local birds which quickly scooped up any crumbs that we dropped. I was so impressed by the restaurant that I would seriously investigate staying at the Papillote Hotel if we return to Dominica.

Good creole restaurant. Try the flying fish on the menu but watch out for the flying creatures after your lunch.

We took a little tour of the gardens, what an exquist place. We had lunch my husband had the flying fish and I had the kettle soup which was amazing. We will be back next time to stay a couple of nights.

WE spent a week at Papillotte and were so pleased. Relaxing in the hot natural pools by the water fall each evening. The staff was so relaxed and pleasant and made each meal an experience. MEALS were great, all of it. I don't think you can beat Papillotte for peace, great food, great company. Anne visited with us and even ate with us on our last evening there. HIGHLY recommend and plan on going there again.
