My husband and I eat there for breakfast and dinner several times, good food, good service, casual and only a couple of blocks from our hotel...most of the staff members where attentive and so kind.

Found Le Papillion on our first day on the island and what a fantastic place. Food is excellent and service is good. Been back a few times and we enjoyed every visit. The Owner is lovely and a great source of information on Grenada. Thanks to the wonderful food and her great hospitality, we felt at home in this little restaurant. We will be back!

I LOVE Le Papillion. I come here a lot for breakfast, brunch, and lunch! The food is divine and the owner is always there and very attentive. There's a nice breeze as it is set up on the second floor, open air (covered). Good service. Sometimes the food can take a little while to get out, especially with the weekend lunch crowd, but for the tasty treats they have there, it's definitely worth it!

If we hadn't been B&B, we would have tried breakfast here. As it was we had a lunch and in was very nice. The menu was a bit limited for lunch options, but the quality was good and the service OK.

Came here for Sunday brunch and expected a bit of a wait. However we never expected it to be this bad. We were seated quickly and told they would bring us a menu. After half an hour, there still was no menu so we offered to go to the chalk board and order from there. We ordered drinks and food then as well as 2 waters as we were seated in the sun. Our friends who we had dropped off at le boulongerie for their own brunch then came to meet us after we had been waiting for an hour. We still did not have drinks or waters and had asked for them over 4 times to different wait staffs. Finally, our original waitress came to ask what we had ordered. It was plainly obvious they had forgotten our order and lost the ticket. I counted 5 tables arrive, eat, and leave before we received our food. All the while our friends are having to sit and wait for us. Eventually they decide to order milkshakes to help pass the time. They never got them. When we finally did get our food, it was okay. Definitely not worth anywhere near a two hour wait. We voiced our displeasure to the owner who did nothing to help us feel better and just made it obvious that they could not handle such volume. It's too bad, we used to love this place but I will never be returning. If you see that it's busy, do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. If it's empty, go ahead and try it.

Wow! We begin by once again apologizing as we did on Sunday for your unhappy experience. At the time you did express to me (the owner) that you were not going to return when the bill was paid and that you did not receive a discount for your inconvenience which I was not able to address at that moment because I did not have the details (which I now understand as you have posted your list on TripAdvisor). I would have needed to know a little more to be able to address the problems. Being so very busy, it was not possible to get all the details and you were also in a hurry to leave, which I do understand.
As for being seated in the sun, we always tell our guests that we prefer not to seat them there as it gets very hot and when we are busy (as we were on Sunday), it takes a long time to be served. Customers are only seated in the sun if they insist on doing so. A covering for one part of the outside seating areas is in the works for future enjoyment. Water was taken to your table at one point, because I personally served your table water when your friends were seated with you.
Your order was unfortunately placed after the two large tables of 15 and 17 were sent in as you arrived after them. This would have been explained to you. Our ordering system is done by a POS system, so the orders would not be lost, and if the other five tables did received their orders before you, their order would have been placed before your order went in to the kitchen and bar as orders are processed in sequence.
All that being said, our goal at Le Papillion Café is to serve customers in a timely and cheerful manner, as without you, we would not exist. We are not happy however with the service that we provided our customers on Sunday as we were overwhelmed and the kitchen and bar were challenged to deliver in a timely manner as each item is made “fresh” to order which normally takes a little extra time. Our café is equipped to serve smaller groups of people and although we made every effort to meet the demands on Sunday, we did not meet our goals, which was also frustrating for our team. We will be placing another server on the floor in the future to meet the demands of busy weekends.
Once again, we apologize that your food was not enjoyable and that your experience was not a good one. Most of all, we are truly sad that you will not give us a second chance and regret that you will not return to enjoy our top quality food and great service that we pride ourselves on and thank you for your support in the past.
