If you are up in titou gorge this place is worth a stop. Menu is slightly limited but the food and fruit juices are great.

Nice setting, good spot to enjoy a spa and massage treatment too. Hot pools to enjoy after lunch as well.

“Great food, locale”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

We stumbled into dinner at Papillote after a day of mini hikes and snorkeling. After a soak in the sulfur pools, it was exactly what we were hoping for: comfortable seating, delicious food, and a great view/ location.

“Over Priced”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

Our restaurant visit was included in our tour of the island. We had to pick our choice of food immediately on entering our tour van. We were under the impression the lunch was included in the trip. We were not exposed to the pricing of the food.

Those that had the flying fish, I believe, enjoyed the food. The Creole style chicken leg meal left much to be desired. I have since searched the menu and found our food cost listed at $9.43 + $11.32 + 2 x $3.50 = $27.75 US. They apparently added 18% gratuity and a further value added tax resulting in a bill for the two of us of $43.42.

When my sister, who paid first, saw the bill for the two of them in Eastern Caribbean Currency she thought the bill was for all 12 of us.

I not sure where the blame lies but I felt used when I preordered a meal that I didn't enjoy without viewing a menu with pricing while assuming it was already included I our tour price.

Didn't break the bank but take this review as a caution when booking tours that include restaurant stops.

“Best food on Dominica”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

Great food, excellent friendly service, sensible prices - if staying, the meal plan is excellent value. Unique setting. Visit a hot tub in the grounds then have lunch with a beer or two. Be warned though - the home made rum punchs are lethal!!
