I think you pay for the view. It is a little expensive but not out of this world. The wood fired pizza has a thin crust and is very good.

As we were staying at the hotel we used the restaurant several times. My wife is gluten intolerant and they were very accommodating. Thursday night was Jeopardy night and it was a blast. Saturday night was pizza night which was very good and Friday night is fine dinning night which was a treat.

Each evening, after hopefully seeking the green flash at sunset, we dined in the top-floor (and top-shelf) restaurant, with the lights of the waterfront twinkling in the distance and the moon and Venus visible overhead. We especially enjoyed the Hawaiian pizza from the wood-burning oven; grilled mahi with tomato salsa; Kabuli beer-battered snapper; grilled lionfish with mango salsa; cheeseburgers (in... More

Not only my best meal on the island, but one of the best steaks I have ever had Coming for a Kansas City native that is high praise indeed. Expensive but well worth it. Lovely view, good service, great food.

They have a built in customer base in their medical students, which means some nights can get loud and rowdy, other nights are perfectly fine. You will be hard pressed to get attention, order a second drink unless you are standing at the bar, or get your meal less than an hour after you arrive. I am not a student... More

I have been to the Champs several times and I think it offers one of the best places to eat in Dominica. The food is really good. The staff can sometimes be a little indifferent. I went back for Valentine's Day and the food was delicious and the service was good.

I stayed at champs for one week when I first moved to Dominica in 2016. I have retuned many times for evening meals. Most fridays they offer an enhanced menu and have a guest chef in the kitchen. There are not many good places to eat in Dominica, so Champs will remain a favorite choice
