You have to approach going to 'Patricks' with the spirit of an adventurer, you are going to be served foods whose names you most likely cannot pronounce, and if you're expecting to get normal boring American staples like fries/pizza/burgers/green salads as an option you're going to be in for a shock :)

A lot of local Grenadain food is curried, and for the REALLY local tastes you can even request local meats such as Iquana and Manicou (local opossums) - they didn't taste great (kind of 'smokey' and tough), but it was worth it just for the experience. There will be 20-25 dishes served, and you'll take a little from each one. Lots of them are vegetarian so don't panic.

The actual resturant is a small purple hut by the side of the main road heading from Grand Anse to St. Georges, and the view is nothing special. Service can be a bit 'unique' - he will tell you off if you don't use your cutlery/plates appropriatly, but take it with a sense of humour, when you get talking to him you'll see how sweet he can be, and it can make for a very memorable meal.

The only thing that is a bit odd at Patrick's is that you don't know what you will get until you get there. The local cuisine is tasty though not aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It is one after another serving of brown or green food. If you can get beyond that, the food is very good and well prepared though you may not know exactly what you are eating!

Well you get about 20 small dishes to try a great taster menu and more than emough to eat. All appears home cooked and all is based on traditional Grenadian Fayre. A well worth while experience. We were the only diners there when we went so would have been better for atomosphere if there had been a few in but we were right at the start of the season. You need to book before you go.

We went to Patrick's in December 2008 after hearing about it as a 'must go' place. There's always that reservation in those circumstances that your expectations might be raised too high and that you'll be disappointed. The look of the restaurant wasn't a surprise, as we'd driven past it many times. Just a little roadside place with peeling paint. As we parked the car, an American lady and her teenaged son were just leaving and we naturally asked them how they had fouind it. i think the lady sad it was the best meal she'd had on the island and the boy thought it was the best meal he had, ever! We had a table on the balcony and a rum punch. The food came in little tasters and was absolutely delicious. The goat curry was far more than being the only palatable dish, it was the nectar of the Gods. Everything else was lovely, my only problem being remembering what everything was, even 5 minutes after being served. Patrick was absolutely charming. He's not someone who needs or wants to grovel or kowtow to anyone, or to put up with rudeness from others. He is very human, friendly, a terrific host and a wonderful chef. I am just looking forward to gettng back to Grenada and eating his food again, this time maybe with a bunch of post its to remind me what all the dishes are.
