Fodor's Expert Review Bamboo and The Creole Pot at Fond Doux Plantation & Resort
The small, rustic pair of restaurants are two of the most popular spots to enjoy a Creole lunch when touring the natural sights in and around Soufrière. Bamboo offers à la carte options at both lunch and dinner while the Creole Pot has a buffet lunch of stewed chicken, grilled fish, rice and beans, macaroni and cheese, caramelized plantains, figs (green bananas), breadfruit balls, purple yams, salad, and more. Nearly all ingredients are locally sourced. Wash it all down with a rum punch or local fruit juice, and finish with something sweet such as coconut or banana cake. Dinner at The Creole Pot, by candlelight, is à la carte: a choice of seafood, chicken, beef, and pasta dishes with a local twist—pepperpot, for example. Most people who come for lunch also take the Heritage Tour of the estate and learn about how the cacao growing on the plantation is turned into delicious chocolate. You can buy chocolate in the gift shop to take home.
