“Nice location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Very nice restaurant. Had a lovely meal here not to expensive, good service, and good food. I accidentally gave the owner too much money by accident when paying, and was promptly given it back. Which was refreshing.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, customer service is our number one priority and we are happy that you were very well pleased. We do realise some customers do not understand our currency or get a little confused, so we are always willing to help, but in your case you gave us 3 times the price of you meal. We love to be kind and honest with our customers and it was a pleasure to assist you. Looking forward to seeing you in the future. Thank you!

“Lunch on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

Mrs Vera your roti for lunch was excellent! Thank you for the bus stop direction! The location on the beach is just perfect!
You could continue to do what you do now which is very good but add on a coffee snacks and cake all day menu too! Your customers need something like this on the beach and you have the perfect spot for it! Please lose the covered table cloths and restaurant chairs and make it rustic and like a beach house. Ask me and I can help you with the interior, no cost!

Thanks for taking the timeout to review us, we recently did some renovation, we took off the table clothes as you stated and added new chairs and new paint. We also added more stuff to our menu, like cakes, tea, coffee, fresh juices ,sandwiches and salad . Hope that you will visit us on your next stop to Castara. Thank you

“Kingfish was Amazing”

Great, tasty food! SO GOOD! I ordered the baked potato and kingfish. It came with a mushroom pasta mix drizzled with olive oil, regular salad, and sweet plantains. Was super tasty and filling.

We only ate at D'almond Tree once, but we were served an amazing roti with some very tender chicken and great side dishes. Go there for an informal nice lunch on the beach.

“Welcoming restaurant serving delectable rotis”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Our third visit to Castara, and D'Almond Tree continues to be one of our favourite places to eat. We enjoy this small and enchanting restaurant for its simplicity and the lovely warm welcome from Vera and Mariska. They serve a choice of tasty Caribbean dishes, our favourite being the lunchtime rotis of fresh fish, chicken or goat - delicious!
Mariska and Vera, it was lovely to see you again; sorry we didn't get a chance to say goodbye.
Our best wishes, Julian, Juliet, Lewis and Oscar
