Description: Riverside Cafe is located in the main stone building at Citrus Creek Plantation, just in front of the Taberi river. All tables are under an open veranda overlooking the river. There are some wooden outside tables in the garden. Riverside Cafe is offering as many local products as possible , cooked with a French touch. The concept of eat what you grow, grow what you eat is prevailing at Riverside Cafe. We try to use our garden products as we use absolutely no chemicals.

“Beautiful dishes, amazing setting, great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

In late March we stayed here for two nights and ate dinner both evenings at Riverside Cafe. The stews, onion pie, espresso, and wines we enjoyed were complimented by friendly and relaxed service. We had visited and stayed with Citrus Creek Plantation last year, and decided to return since we loved the setting so much. A wonderful place.

“very good spot for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We visited Riverside Cafe for lunch just a few days ago, after a hike to Sari Sari Falls, and upon the recommendation of our innkeeper (Beau Rive). We enjoyed ourselves very much - probably our best lunch stop in Dominica. Very good food (yes not a huge selection but ...), great drinks, very nice service, and a perfect setting. Not sure what "Glenn A" was referring to by "very touristy" and "people pulling at you from everywhere." We experienced no such thing - I can only think he got his places confused. Our entire party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed this spot for a delightful lunch.

“Good food in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

The riverside setting is superb. My husband, adult son and I had lunch. Although the menu was limited, all three of us were pleased with what we had ordered. Delicious, French bistro food, beautifully served.

“Misleading service - overhyped spot”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Had lunch with my wife. Ho-Hum. Ambience amazing, river beautiful (but places like this thoughout Dominica BTW). Main issue was the limited selection of dishes (common in the WI) and the misleading info from the server. I asked about the Cod dish and asked about Onions (as i don't like onions). I was told it was not that oniony and that I could remove the onions. Well, the fish was chopped up through umpteen onions, mashed together - ironically she did bring me a plate to separate the onions which was comical as this is impossible and unlike she said, it was indeed very strong oniony taste. My wife ordered the salmon, again littered with onions and wasn't so nice. Shocked at the number of great reviews, always a disappointment to spend 100EC on a meal for two that we could have prepared much nicer at home. I ended up eating the rest of the meal which was ok and felt misled. Server never once checked on us to see if it was ok, only when we were done and ready to leave. Completely overhyped. Go to Islet View in Castle Bruce - even better ambience and top notch creole cooking.

“OK place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

But very touristy just like the river tours. People pulling at you from everywhere. No special food but looked clean.
