“A hidden gem! Worth the trip!”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

On our way to the national park hot springs just inland from Soufriere (south of Roseau) we passed the turn to this place and decided on a lark to head in there for lunch. We are very glad we did!

The dining is surprisingly elegant for such informal looking grounds in such a secluded area. We were pleasantly surprised!

The dining is in a large outside covered patio overlooking the grounds of the retreat.

I had the goat curry and my wife had chicken. Served local style with loads of root vegetables.

We loved it!

If you did an excursion to Scott's Head, Champagne Beach and the nearby hot springs national park, it would make a great day trip!

The restaurant is about 5 minutes inland from Soufriere and 3 minutes from the national park hot springs.
