Just next door to where we were staying was this charming open-air restaurant with really good wood-fired pizza. All vegetarian but many options made even our teenaged boys very happy. Pizza crust was crisp and toppings varied and fresh. Beautiful salads, too. Great house rum punch - a secret recipe but with passion fruit and sorrel juices.

The focus here is on fresh, healthy & homemade - and the results are just delicious. Pizzas were presented piping hot from a wood-fired oven. Marco makes the dough from scratch early each day. He starts a citrus wood fire in the afternoon so it's perfect for baking by dinner time. As a starter, try the hummus with garlic/herb flatbread... More

Description
Sunshine Cottage in only 10 minutes away from the Capital of Roseau, on the main road to the beautiful Trafalgar Falls. Sunshine Cottage offers a unique an private mountain view. We are pleased to serve you fresh, organically grown vegetarian and/or vegan dishes only ! We recently just added a cottage to rent on the same site as the restaurant, by the same name: Sunshine Cottage is a modern, well built, cosy and comfortable house in the middle of the rainforest of the Roseau Valley. It has two bedrooms with Queen size beds, one bath with Italian shower, a cosy living room and open plan kitchenette (with sink, coffee/tea maker and fridge). The Cottage and the Restaurant are surrounded on all sides by the rainforest, tropical flowers and many different fruit trees. It's the perfect place to relax, reconnect with nature and with one another or simply live life !
