Food was excellent. Good value and plates were full. If you are looking for a quiet dinner this is NOT the place. Across the street is a dance hall where the music is so loud the waitress had trouble taking our order. But the this is a true Caribbean restaurant.

On a recommendation from our local friend, we went to Golden Taste on Friday evening just as the Jump Up was getting underway. The food offered by the vendors on the street looked quite tasty but we wanted to sit down out of the way and enjoy some people-watching. The food at Golden Taste was delicious! We had dorado (mahi-mahi), both grilled and in a creole sauce and I can’t say which we liked better. Marvelous with the accompanying ground provisions, macaroni pie, salad and a few Pitons to quench our thirst. One in our group of 4 had the lamb chops and he declared them to be very, very good and I believe him since he was nibbling every bit of meat off the bones. Service was friendly and quick despite being busy and the price can’t be beat. We highly recommend a visit!

Often loud music outside but the food is well priced and really good! All local and delicious. Better than all the fancy high priced restaurants out there. No it isn't fancy food but a good experience if your down on the island.

We decided to get to Gros Islet early before Friday's "Jump Up" and try out some local cuisine at Golden Taste. It is on the main drag where the party happens so a fantastic place to people watch. We arrived around 7.30pm, got a good spot just inside and spent the next couple of hours feasting on the most amazing spare ribs in barbecue sauce and lamb cutlets with salad, rice, plantain etc. The service was brilliant, very friendly, attentive and quick - despite the place being really busy. And all at a VERY good price. You must try it!

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.
