Wonderful authentic Creole cuisine. We both had the grilled lambi which is something we could never find in a restaurant at home. Also Gros Islet is a wonderful break from the touristy atmosphere of Rodney Bay. Make this a definite stop during your visit to...More

I don't understand all the rave reviews. The food wasn't bad but it also wasn't good. Nothing was very flavorful and much seemed heavily fried. Good friendly service and decent atmosphere, but I'd be reluctant to recommend it for the food.

A pleasant place with friendly staff. Mainly local cuisine on the menu and the quality is fine. Not cheap, but I guess similar prices to most places. A safe bet for an evening meal.

We had lunch at Golden Taste, very good food despite a lukewarm welcome. We had the lambi, ordered 2 servings for 4 and that was good. Rum punch was delicious, lots of local people eating there, and taking meals out. We would definitely recommend it.

We came here 2 nights out of 3. Fantastic food. Very fresh. My husband eats meat and fish but as a veggie I still had plenty of choice and the veg was great. Highly recommend for excellent value and flavour.

We turned off the main road into Gros Islet after visiting the park at Rodney Bay, on our way back to the Soufriere area resort. Not knowing the area, and in search of good local food, we asked our driver to ask some local pedestrians...More
