Talk about outstanding food! My wife and I requested our guide to take us to an authentic St. Lucian cuisine spot. This was it! Service was very friendly, very fast, and huge, delicious portions. We enjoyed it so much that we ordered two more to go for dinner again that night! This is a must eat spot in a very... More

I decided to try this location on the wrong day, on the day of pinehill fun walk and the wait for food was 30 minutes. The world doesn't stop because of a large order for a walk. Hunger waits for no man!

Nice restaurant serving local food and a good place to chill out and watch the jump up get started. Perhaps a little pricey for the area, but I always enjoy my meal and the service is ok. Incidentally, it was the only place that I could get a gin & tonic to keep my wife happy ( after her 3... More

We were recommended Golden Taste as a true experience of Caribbean food and we weren't disappointed. The food was plentiful and delicious and the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. We will definitely visit again.

Our hotel receptionist recommended Golden Taste as the place to eat during the Gros Islet Friday night street party. Glad we followed her suggestion. The setting may seem a tad rough and ready but the fish was super-tasty and the portion size was large.

This place never fails me! It's my weekend go to whenever I'm on island. We typically go for the curry goat on Saturdays but I've also had the garlic shrimp and stuffed chicken, both of which are amazing. The plate you get is GIANT and the value is outstanding. You're full with delicious food for the whole day it was... More
