Top 10 restaurants in Dominica

July 17, 2017 Terina Blouin

Welcome to the Nature Island. Remote, affordable and, as yet, unspoiled, Dominica deserves more than a day's visit from your cruise ship. Spend a week (or more) exploring mountains covered by tropical rainforest, endless hiking trails, some 40 dive sites and black-sand beaches. You'll soon be plotting ways to return every year.

Riverside Cafe

Riverside Cafe is located in the main stone building at Citrus Creek Plantation, just in front of the Taberi river. All tables are under an open veranda overlooking the river. There are some wooden outside tables in the garden. Riverside Cafe is offering as many local products as possible , cooked with a French touch. The concept of eat what you grow, grow what you eat is prevailing at Riverside Cafe. We try to use our garden products as we use absolutely no chemicals.

After a brief walk to Trafalgar falls, stumbled on this joint on the way down the mountain. Right on the road with river views way below out the back. No menus- the waiter merely asked us " chicken, fish or goat?" All were excellent, served w/ rice, beans and salad.

Reviewed By Elkabelka - Boulder, CO

Influenced by the guidebook, we stopped here for a snack. Ordered a bunch of stuff, including the dasheen (taro) puffs (excellent) and a shrimp snack. The 5 very tiny shrimp cost us exactly $6 EACH. Wow! And the price on the bill was higher than the one on the menu. Wondered why that was the case - if you have a beautiful spot, a nice facility, terrific Gardens, and a chance to delight your guests - do you really have to be that unreasonable? This was the only place during our 2-weeks in Dominica that left us with really bad taste... Be forewarned. The staff is not enthusiastic at all - perhaps there is a reason...

Yvette and Rena greet you with beautiful smiles and a strong Dominican accent as the take your order from the menu, customise it to your tastes and and serve either in the restaurant or al fresco, as you watch the world fly by. its a place to bump into perfect strangers and become intimate friends, and that's exactly what we did. we met some amazing characters there, and it really felt like a family fest at times. again, fresh fish and local fruits and veg are the perfect start to the day, and we will miss this place dearly. Cannot wait to get back!

From the Centipede Rum, Callilou Soup, and Shrimp Fritters, to the Caribbean Jerk Mahi and homemade Rum and Raisin ice cream, Pagua Bay Bar and Grill really delivered. Laureen and Jenny were amazing hosts and we enjoyed delicious food with breathtaking views of the bay. Highly recommended when in Dominica!

Old Stone Grill & Bar

Reviewed By 1greenlife - London, United Kingdom

We ate here three times, and each time we commented on how fresh-tasting and scrumptious the food tasted. We had various meals, consisting of things such as fried plantain, salad, fish, and various meats. They have a few cooks but the standard of the meals remained consistently high.
The service we experienced was prompt and attentive.
The atmosphere was relaxed and casual. When we were there, there were tourists and locals dining, but the menu was, in my opinion, predominantly based on Dominican based foods.
If you are ever in Roseau near to Fort Young, then you may want to give this eatery a go.

The Champs Restaurant

Reviewed By AlliecatOOB - Old Orchard Beach, Maine

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 paradise!); and tacos.

Coral Reef Restaurant

Located in the heart of downtown Calibishie.

Reviewed By MurTheExplorer - Edmonton, Canada

I don't think the restaurant was really open. They all seemed to be occupied with cleaning the place up during the slow season. The lady was super nice and served us. It was the only place we could find open between Marigot and Calibishie. If you are interested in trip to Dominica see our not for profit blog havecarryonwilltravel.com. The Seating has a view our over the water. Always a plus for prairie dwellers. The prices were in line with most other restaurants we visited during our stay. I had curried shrimp with rice and peas (beans). It was great. If you are in the area eat here.

We came here for lunch and were treated to amazing views of Castle Bruce. We all had the fish that was quite good and accompanied with lots of provisions. They threw a sample of infused rum before lunch. Staff was friendly and service pretty quick. Well worth the drive.

POZ Restaurant & Bar at Calibishie Gardens

Reviewed By Frank A - San Clemente, California

The Calibishie Gardens with POZ Restaurant and Bar is a great place for dinner. The stir fry, is amazing and the Jerk Chicken is the best in Dominica . The pizza is also awesome after a day hiking.
The atmosphere is casual fun and talkative.
The owner, Troy, know as POZ is a hospitable, welcoming host. I would like to recommend Poz Restaurant and Bar to everyone visiting Dominica , Calibishie.
Relax and enjoy a Poz dinning experience...
