“Interesting”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

We stayed at Ladera and were looking for somewhere more reasonably priced for a meal. We had read good reviews and gave it a go. It was an interesting experience, I had a fairly bland salad to start and my husband had the souskaye which is a fish stew and was very fiery. We had some nice shrimps for main but made the mistake of ordering conche fish not realising it was sea snails. Not to my taste! The staff were very friendly but very busy so not hugely attentive. There was also a table of very drunken people in the restaurant which somewhat detracted from the ambience. Overall not the best.

“Good food, hard to reach”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Kinda hard to reach for us, considering we were just 2kms down the road at Ladera. But I suppose thats the case for all restaurants here because there is little or no public transport at night. Food was very good, and it wasnt too pricey either.

“Good lunch”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Went here for the tour and possibly lunch. Decided just to have lunch as the tour/lunch package seemed overpriced and we'd done other tours. Food was good.

“Warm welcome to a perfect rainforest hideaway.”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

At the entrance meet with Mr. Lamontagne who greeted me and my guest, with a warm " Jean la Kai" or family friend welcome to his paradise escape. The food and service as great and warm as the first welcome, not over shadowing the picturesque beauty of the hotel.
