Places to Eat

Titled this way because not all the food you may eat is found in restaurants. I am also limiting myself to talking about Soufriere and local villages in the case of the Anse La Raye "Fish Friday"
In Soufriere we have a number of very good restaurants, particularly in the major hotels, Anse Chastanet, Jalousie & Ladera. Each of these can be classed as expensive but for all that the food is excellent. The evening menu at Pirates Cove on the waterfront in Soufriere by the main Jetty is also quite expensive but again serves excellent food, the chef used to work for Jalousie at one time. They also have a lunch menu which is much more reasonably priced and this menu is often available in the evening as well if your looking for something a little less expensive.

Ladera & Dasheen Restaurant

Lunch - a la cart menu 12:00 2:30pm
This is what they say about the evening services 6:30pm to 9:30pm. - That it is perhaps the freshest food in the Caribbean, Dasheene's daily menu provides an excitingly delicious combination of fresh caught fish, locally grown and freshly picked produce and other entrées and indulgences, all presented in a style of casual elegance

In general the food is great and the Sunday Brunch party is well worth going to.


Orlando now has his own restaurant opposite the cemetry on the road into Soufriere, the food is excellent, many of our guests say the best they had during their stay.

Anse Chastanet Hotel

Lunch on the beach in the Trou Au Diable restaurant is reasonably priced and there is a wide range of food available.
In the evenings there is an authentic Apsara Tandoori restaurant set up on the beach. This restaurant features a fusion of east & west Indian cuisine.
Upstairs in the main restaurant "The Petit Piton & Treehouse", you can enjoy a fine blend of Caribbean and world cuisine. The menu changes daily (not Tuesday) and consists of a 4 course meal served in the open sided restaurant, there is always a vegetarian option served.
On Tuesday evenings the Trou Au Diable restaurant serves a Caribbean buffet.

Fish Friday in Anse La Raye

Lots of fun, starts after dark and keeps going till late.
The waterfront of Anse La Raye is closed to traffic and tents and food stalls erected
All things fishy are prepared, especially good are the lobsters (in season). Lots to drink and plenty of music to wash it down.


Pirates Cove: Close to the main jetty, nice views, can be noisy at the weekends, lunch menu moderate price and good, evenings gourmet at high price.
Camilla's: Local, moderate prices, ask for a "Camilla's Voodoo" if you are brave.
Fedo's New Venture: Great local food, cheap, hard to find. Ask.
Hummingbird: At the base of the Hummingbird hill, excellent ambience, good food, moderate to high price
The Still: Great location, moderate priced
La Haute: On the road to Castries, superb views, get there before dark, good food, moderate price
Lastly "Off the street", many evenings, particularly at weekends local ladies set up grills and fryers on street corners, selling chicken, fish, bakes/floats and more, it's cheap, it's good, what more do you need to know.
Some restaurants come & go, names change and so on, ask Berthia for her opinion.

Chef Orlando (pictured left) was the head Chef at Ladera but now has his own (very good) restaurant on the left as you go into town.
