Our family of seven ranging in ages from 6 to 60 brought take-out from Golden Taste bask to our villa to enjoy. Golden Taste was highly recommended by our villa's Saint Lucian neighbours as the best place in Gros Islet to get great local food. While everything we had was delicious the Conch Fritters and grilled Dorado fish were the... More

A pleasant place with friendly staff. Mainly local cuisine on the menu and the quality is fine. Not cheap, but I guess similar prices to most places. A safe bet for an evening meal.

We had lunch at Golden Taste, very good food despite a lukewarm welcome. We had the lambi, ordered 2 servings for 4 and that was good. Rum punch was delicious, lots of local people eating there, and taking meals out. We would definitely recommend it.

We came here 2 nights out of 3. Fantastic food. Very fresh. My husband eats meat and fish but as a veggie I still had plenty of choice and the veg was great. Highly recommend for excellent value and flavour.

We turned off the main road into Gros Islet after visiting the park at Rodney Bay, on our way back to the Soufriere area resort. Not knowing the area, and in search of good local food, we asked our driver to ask some local pedestrians where there was a nearby place with good food. They suggested Golden Taste, so off... More

Mega yum!!!! The ribs were honestly the best I can remember ever having! The rum lunch was the best on the island and the Callaloo soup just amazing (I ate this soup several times on the island and this wa any favorite). They are slightly busy on Sundays as it is the only big restaurant open, but they will make... More

Great food and large portions, We ate here twice on a five day stay..Prices are reasonable and US$ and Credit Cards are welcome. The barbaqued ribs were the best I have had anywhere in a long time.. If you visit St. Lucia you will want to try this place.

The place lived up to expectations and then some. The food was great although we all ended up getting the backed chicken and everyone left food on... More

Went there with our host Cheryl, who eats there since years. Always same good quality. Caribbean kitchen at its best. Served fast and hot. Try the ribs, they are delicious! All the rest comes along automatically, beans, corn, potatoes, bread fruit, bananas, ... You should not leave St. Lucia without eating here if you are into local food and like... More
