“Do not miss this!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Amazing view, service, drinks, and food. Flying fish with creole sauce and rice and beans was amazing. Rum punch was made with fresh guava juice and was strong. You can hike to the waterfalls from here. Don't miss this opportunity to eat in a rainforest, a piece of paradise!

“A LITTLE RAINFOREST GEM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

Just returned from a cruise on Celebrity Equinox to the Caribbean and visited Dominica. We shared a taxi with some other people which was great and had a tour up to the rainforest where we were dropped off at the Papillote Wilderness Retreat/Restaurant. What a wonderful way to spend 3 hours walking around the rainforest seeing lovely plants and birds with some great views and away from the bustle of the cruise. We had lunch there which was lovely and then we were picked up by a lovely taxi man Michael - $25 dollars each for return. Great value. If anyone books a cruise - dont book the excursions on the ship - just jump in a taxi - so much better value for money and you meet some great taxi drivers.

“Good place for a little lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

We had a nice little lunch here surrounded by birds and some beautiful views. It is very close to Ti Tou Gorge so a trip there before or after lunch isn't a bad idea.

“Amazing views and vista almost make you forget to eat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Papillote is on the side of the mountain valley at the Trafalgar Falls. The view from the open air dining area make you almost forget to eat. The food is first rate, but Island in nature. Not a 5 Star, but clearly well worth the time and trouble to get there. Relax and enjoy the view, have a leisurely meal and savor the time well spent. Good burgers and sandwiches and their soups are to die for. Their chef is a master at making terrific loacl style soups.

“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Went for lunch, the staff was very accommodating and the food was amazing! While you wait for your incredible meal to arrive (highly recommend the flying fish or the shrimp) try some fresh fruit juices or head down the stairs to the hot spring pool and the waterfall! There are paths that take a winding route around the area to see more of the rainforest. See lots of interesting flora and fauna and be sure to check out the 3D map of dominica on the wall! Will definitely be back!
