There are several good places in Gros Islet serving authentic local food. This place has a simple menu with 4-5 choices. We had three of them and all were hearty and delicious.

Beer was cold, service was friendly and prompt, and the atmosphere was fantastic. Leave your resort for lunch and check it out.

Attached pic shows what the dishes are like. Prices are in the $8-$13 USD range.

You will find this restaurant on the main artery highway into Gros Islet on Dauphin street. Its right in the heart of the street party. They have a variety of local food and the staff are extremely pleasant.

We were heading to Flavours of the Grill but it was closed. Charles our taxi driver recommended this instead.
Enjoyed it so much we went back.
Great to have 'local food' rather than the 'international cuisine' found in Rodney Bay.The portions were huge & when we went back we just opted for the rice & salad with the main course without the potato / plantain etc .
Great value - starter / main course / beers was around 100ec$ / £25
Not many tables & frequented mainly by locals so if going on a Friday night make sure you book

This is a restaurant that serves a typical Caribbean Sunday lunch that tastes great. On my visit I had the rice and peas, macaroni pie, ground provisions, plantain, vegetables, pigeon peas and grilled dorado, while my friends had the stewed pork. The food tastes very good and has a flavor like when someone's mother or grandmother cooked in the kitchen at home. The restaurant is in a wooden building facing onto a main street, with the front of the restaurant open onto the street so that wherever you sit you can see outside.This wooden building with the old style Caribbean appearance gives the restaurant a special ambiance. It is not a large restaurant as it has approximately 8 tables inside and 3 tables on the sidewalk which gives it an intimate feel.

After your meal if you do not have any other appointments you can sit at the tables at the front of the restaurant and look at life in Gros Islet passing by.
