Fodor's Expert Review Gomier's Restaurant and Soy Centre
This is one of the better restaurants in Punta Gorda—when and if it's open. Posted hours don't necessarily mean anything, as Gomier's opens when the friendly St. Lucia–born owner, Ingnatius "Gomier" Longville, feels like cooking. When it is open, Gomier's does excellent vegetarian meals, from organic ingredients grown locally by the owner, along with some seafood. Go with the vegetarian dish of the day, which could be stir-fried tofu or vegan spaghetti. Fresh seafood dishes, such as shrimp curry, sometimes are available. Garífuna hudut (green and ripe mashed plantains with fish and coconut stew) lunches are on Friday, and there's live music or documentary movies some nights. Prices are reasonable. The owner also offers tofu-making and cooking classes.
