Ate here repeatedly. The best on the Island. Easy to share an entre and get a couple of apps. Gourmet.

“Well worth the trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Although some way from the North of the island, the food and service in this romantic and secluded setting are excellent. We have visited frequently since its opening some years ago and have never been disappointed. Soufflés and seafood are special.

Dear Piers A

Many thanks for your review of Rainforest and your regular visits over the years. Rainforest celebrates its tenth anniversary this year - and many of our clients are repeat visitors who own villas or time shares in the northern resorts.

We appreciate the journey can take up to 45 minutes from the north of the island - so our objective is to ensure that it is "well worth the trip". Try it by boat one time - a little expensive but magical and often the highlight of the vacation - if you get a calm, moonlit night. We will also provide transport for six adult diners - but this must be arranged through the restaurant.
