Golden Taste is PERFECT! The food is delicious and they give you more than enough food. This is Authentic St. Lucian food. I went here two nights in a row and was wow'd both times.

I decided to try this location on the wrong day, on the day of pinehill fun walk and the wait for food was 30 minutes. The world doesn't stop because of a large order for a walk. Hunger waits for no man!

Nice restaurant serving local food and a good place to chill out and watch the jump up get started. Perhaps a little pricey for the area, but I always enjoy my meal and the service is ok. Incidentally, it was the only place that I could get a gin & tonic to keep my wife happy ( after her 3... More

We were recommended Golden Taste as a true experience of Caribbean food and we weren't disappointed. The food was plentiful and delicious and the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. We will definitely visit again.

Our hotel receptionist recommended Golden Taste as the place to eat during the Gros Islet Friday night street party. Glad we followed her suggestion. The setting may seem a tad rough and ready but the fish was super-tasty and the portion size was large.

This place never fails me! It's my weekend go to whenever I'm on island. We typically go for the curry goat on Saturdays but I've also had the garlic shrimp and stuffed chicken, both of which are amazing. The plate you get is GIANT and the value is outstanding. You're full with delicious food for the whole day it was... More

This is great restaurant with food all prepared with love. Food taste so homemade that it has become my regular Sunday lunch spot after church. Grilled dorado with ground provisions and steamed vegetables; baked chicken and fries; baby back ribs and vegetables and macaroni pie.

Loved this place! We had the tuna and the dorado with all the sides and some hot sauce. It's a nice place to sit, got to watch some tennis on the TV. Will definitely go back and can't recommend enough. They also take credit card which is nice.

Golden Taste Restaurant is always there for us when we arrive hungry on the island. The food is good, staff is nice. Local juice always on the menu. Great variety of fish, vegetable and meat dishes. Good ribs, great mahi mahi etc. The location is always breathing and alive. Buses passing there, pedestrians walking by. The local musician sometimes brings... More
