This is the best place on the beach for drinks and food. It's the only place with a large wooden decking, right on the beach. We went here a few times around sunset (around 6.00 PM) for coctails and a lovely meal (see what's on the blackboard that day), all very laid-back and easy-going beach atmosphere. Very recommendable!

One of our favorite meals on the island. I am disappointed we did not go here sooner!! Fish and curry dishes were both amazing.

We had the fish dinner and fish sandwich, it was ok. The coleslaw was the highlight. It was poached fish which I think is blah. The butter was the flavor.

The owner is a lovely french lady and the food is great. The menu features only meat and fish but on request vegetarians will get a fantastic meal whipped up. For ginger lovers - they make very tasty ginger juice. The colour scheme of the cafe is pink/blue and the colours and light, especially at sunset are spectacular.

If you're looking for a lunch spot on Mero Beach, this is it. Outside tables under the colorful sails and tables on the sand make it the perfect spot to enjoy cold beers and fish dishes. All the entrees were great except for the grilled dorado - too chewy. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Be sure to check... More

Excellent meal served by wonderful people! The plates were filled to overflowing and neither my companion nor I could finish it all! Split a plate! So much good food and all fresh and local. Truly a dining experience!!

However if I would be honest the chicken sandwich was very good. It was $14 US dollars and looked like chicken leg meat but the bread was very good and the sandwich was tasty. It came with plantains and dumplings that were particularly good. It also came with an avocado salad that was also very good. So my main beef... More

Very good food and very friendly! Normally she opens til 7pm but if guests are there she's very flexible. If you are later it would be a good idea to call her to ensure its open. Speaks English, French and German.

Mero Beach is about 25-30 minutes from the port of Roseau. We hired a private taxi (Didier's Taxi...Mr. Didier was amazing, efficient and fully licensed). When we got to the Cafe all of the lounge chairs were taken so we rented a table and two straight back chairs for our 2-3 hour stay at a cost of $10. Our belongings... More
