La Belle Creole Review

The marriage of contemporary and West Indian cuisines and a splendid view of the twinkling lights in distant St. George's are the delights of this romantic hillside restaurant. The always-changing five-course prix fixe and à la carte menus are based on original recipes from the owner's mother, a pioneer in incorporating local fruits, vegetables, and spices into "foreign" dishes. Try, for instance, Grenadian caviar (roe of the white sea urchin), green-banana soup, callaloo quiche, creole fish, baked chicken roulade, or ginger pork chops—with homemade mango cheesecake for dessert. The inspired cuisine, romantic setting, and gracious service are impressive.

    La Belle Creole Review

    My wife and I decided to try this establishment on a recent visit to Grenada. Having read encouraging reports and reviews about the food, we were eagerly anticipating a culinary experience to remember.

    And remember it we shall, but for all the wrong reasons. Upon arrival, we were not greeted by anyone and had to wait to be seated (even though the seating capacity is less than 25!). Our server seemed to be a bit harassed and her greeting reflected her mood. Subsequently, we were approached by a woman who may have been either the manageress or owner - it was better if she had not visited our table because the flavour of her interaction left much to be desired (in fact she never smiled during the exchange).

    While our server was mediocre, the bartender who assisted her did a much better job - kudos for correct attitude. One of the appetizers (sugar cane shrimp) was delectable but the tannia soup tasted like pureed seasoned rubber.

    The main course got marks for presentation but not for taste and content. For all the restaurant's hype, the offering was plentiful but lacking flavour and the artisan's touch - not something we'd dream about having again. I suppose the hardest part was seeing the cost - you don't mind paying for a good dining experience but this was atrocious.

    Certainly the experience was forgettable, and not a restaurant that I would recommend.
