Le Flambeau Restaurant

Portsmouth | (767) 445-5131

Set on the island of Dominica, Le Flambeau Restaurant is on the premises of Picard Beach Cottages, and is a logical selection worth considering if you're thinking about visiting this side of the island. It's 1.7 miles south of Portsmouth. The overall atmosphere of this fun favorite is very casual, so guests will appreciate the laid-back feel as they eat simple, outrageously good grub.

Palisades Restaurant

Downtown Roseau | (767) 448-5000

Palisades Restaurant

Palisades Restaurant, which is part of Fort Young Hotel, is found in downtown Roseau, in the southern outskirts of Roseau. Considering this is an informal place to have a meal, it's great when you don't want to get too fancy.

Many of the dishes on the menu are sourced locally, such as the pumpkin and ginger soup and most seafood items. Local and international fusion cuisine is their specialty, the epitome of this being their take on Dominica's Provision Pie, and the menu is extensive enough that everyone will be able to find something to suite their tastes.

Breadnut Restaurant and Bar

Rosalie | (767) 446-1886

Located in Rosalie, fairly close to Grand Fond, Breadnut Restaurant and Bar is on the premises of 3 Rivers Eco Lodge, and is a viable choice for guests who are going to be spending time seeing this neighborhood or nearby. Roseau is approximately nine and a half miles (15 kilometers) to the west-southwest. Thinking about Caribbean food, and definitely need some comfort food? In any case, consider making this fun restaurant the one thing on your list you do twice.

It is important to note when you stay at 3 Rivers that Breadnut Restaurant and Bar is not a restaurant that is open all the time. The staff comes in only when orders have been placed and make the food then. This means that guests must order all of the meals they would like to eat at Breadnut in advance. If you don't order in advance, you don't eat!

For breakfast, the offerings are pretty standard. Their most popular options are the local breakfast of codfish and green banana, but the chef is also rather proud of his fresh crepes and pancakes. Cocoa, tea, and local coffee are included in this meal.

For dinner, the chef generally does a dish of the day which will contain a meat or fish main course together with a wide variety of local vegetables and provisions. Starters may be fresh soups or salads, while desserts might be anything from a sizzling banana to home made cakes.

Ruins Rock Cafe

Roseau | (767) 440-5483

Located north-northeast of downtown Roseau, Ruins Rock Cafe is on King George V Street. The general vibe and formality of this awesome bar and grill is considered casual, and that's good because your gang can be themselves and spend real quality time while they try one of tasty offerings here.

While the cocktails are the real reason most people visit Ruins, you'll find burgers and seafood on the menu also.

Island Ice Cream

Downtown Roseau | (767) 448-2991

Located in the heart of downtown Roseau, Island Ice Cream is at 15 Kennedy Avenue. Got ice cream on the brain? No matter your expectations for dining, there's no shame in it being the one thing you both agree on.
