Dinner at Jardin Cacao made my Christmas; it was a total get away from your usual restaurant setting engulfed in greenry and bamboo decor. Food was great the setting was cozy; loved the ambience.

I cant forget the ladies at the restaurant their smiles added to the holiday cheer, thanks guys, I am definitely coming back on my visit later in the year.

I loved that dasheen, I think thats what you called it.

I think my next trip I will also make use of your cottages, with you guys been so close to so many good dive sites, no point staying in the north. Thanks again Fond Doux & Jardin Cacao.

My Husband and i visited St Lucia and we stayed at Mago Hotel for one week. We visited the Fond Doux Holiday Plantation and dined at the Jardin Cocoa Restaurant for three nights. The food there was authentic, caribbean flavored and delectable. The presentation was above par and the staff there was super friendly and the service was of high standard. We regret that we had not stumbled on this restaurant earlier on during our stay as we would have dined throughout the entire week.

We stayed at the the Hotel that this "Restaurant" is attached to and had the misfortune of buying the all-inclucive option.
An example of the "cooking" ordered steak on a number of occations, they went to the freezer took it out throught on the grill, when delivered burned on both sides. This is a typicle experiance.
We stayed over New Years, Bev and Willma said the place would be hopping with people from other resorts, party would go on till early hours is what they said.
iIf we had known what the truth would be we would have gone to the Humming bird or another place.

Fond Doux Estate is very lush and exotic. The grounds are gorgeous. Unfortunately, the restaurant is terrible! We were seated for dinner only to find out that the kitchen had "run out" of several appetizers, including salads. I ordered the akkra (salted cod) only to find out, one hour later, as our entrees were being served that they had run out of that also. For my entree, I selected shrimp primavera. I received chicken over penne pasta and Stroganoff sauce. My husband ordered coconut shrimp, which also came topped with Stroganoff sauce. We did not order desert. The bill was quite inexpensive around US$50 for both of us, but in the end you get what you pay for. Service was slow, food was terrible, and there were ants on the table. Eat anywhere but here.
