Mero beach is a very beautiful one to spend some time. Even more so with Romance Cafe! The food is good and prepared quickly, prices are fair, the staff is very friendly. We went there twice, each time with enthusiasm. And some work is even underway to make the place more shady and comfortable.

We have visited twice in the past 3 years and it is evident that significant efforts have been made to make the place more tourist friendly ( beach side). That is not a knock on the property but just an observation and probably a sign of things to come for Dominica in the future (good for commerce). With that said,... More

We have been on Dominica for two weeks and have already eaten here two times. If you are at Mero Beach, this place is a must! They both provide local food, burgers, vegetarian/vegan food and juices/smoothies. The fish meal, was the best I have ever had in my entire life! Also, the staff recognized us the second time we came... More

The food here is amazing, all cooked on premises to high standard. Light lunch or full meal, nice choice of menu. Romance Cafe has just been renamed as Karib Bay Beach Bar. A nice touch is the owner's support for local charity DAPD helping those who have lost limbs. She is a warm, welcoming and knowledgeable hostess to all her... More

No review will do this food justice! It was that good. Expect to wait a bit as the food is prepared but it's worth the wait. I had the veggie plate and a papaya smoothie. The views of Mara Beach while you wait are gorgeous. They take Visa but not Amex.

Not many places can boast delicious food in this country. Romance Cafe on Mero Beach is one of the places that can say their food is one of the most delicious on the island! I would go to this place to eat again and again! I had the fish meal, which consisted of mahi mahi fish, pan fried sweet potatoes... More

On the generally friendly island of Dominica this restaurant is at the top! What a cheerful team. The food is excellent too.We had mahi-mahi in coconut sauce, delicious. It is worth noting also that the service was speedy. You may have to ask a few locals before you find the restaurant, it is hidden away on the beachfront. Worth finding... More
