If you're looking for delicious food in a gorgeous, peaceful location with a view, make sure you visit Le Jardin Du Roi.

It's a relatively basic, yet very charming setting and the food is freshly prepared & beautifully made.

There were 6 of us visiting & the stand-out dishes were the grilled fish starter, tomato & basil starter (the spices they used hit every taste bud with their various flavours), fish curry with coconut milk (I'm not normally a big fish curry fan, but thought I'd try it - really glad I did too!!) and the banana flambé with homemade ice-cream for dessert.

With around 2-3 drinks each (including Mojito's & some Caribbean Punch) plus water, 3 starters, 6 main courses & 2 desserts, the bill came to around £210 (April 2014).

Seen other comments on the internet about 'slow service', but we had a normal waiting time - this is not a fast food joint & good food is always worth waiting for in my opinion anyway!

A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours in a relaxed environment - well worth a visit!

The food was excellent but the portions were small. The admission is not worth for what you see. I have seen better gardens. Map is impossible to navigate. I would come if you are willing to pay mid prices for food(its not cheap) and want to relax in a garden. It is not a WOW experience.

The curries here are fantastic. you can taste the fresh spice and can imagine that they are from the garden by the restaurant. while the quality is good, the portions are very small. this is the second time that we have stopped here (last year too). we bought fresh spices (cinnamon sticks and nutmeg) to bring back as gifts in the UK. the road up the hill is a bit treacherous…not for the faint hearted! service was good too.

It is very difficult to reach this place. Arrived at the top there's just a small souvenir boutique and a small restaurant managed by a very rude woman. She pestered us so much that I had no urge to see the spice garden. I think this place should be last on anybody's places to visit.

The food is very good & the spice garden is really worth a visit! The owner Mrs. George is a very gracious host!
