I thought I’d post a short update on places to eat in and around Roseau – a few things have changed since my latest Dominica guide was published.
Pearls Cuisine (both the take-out and the restaurant) have moved from King George V Street and can now be found in the Sutton Place Hotel (Old Street, pp 101/103), They are running the restaurant and, if you go around the back of the building onto Hanover Street, you’ll find the take-out. Pearls is good for local lunches, fresh juices and roti.
If you’re a pizza fan, Perky’s has moved from Independence Street to swanky new fast-food premises on Cork Street. Speaking of pizza; if you’re a vegetarian or vegan there’s a new place open in Shawford (the road to Trafalgar) called Sunshine Cottage. They do vegetarian stone oven pizza as well as a selection of other non-meat dishes. Their telephone number is 767 285 6399. Still my favourite pizza (I know, pizza is a very personal thing) is to be had at Le Petit Paris bakery near the Alliance Francaise building behind the Botanic Gardens.
The Talipot Gallery (p 102) opposite the public library on Victoria Street is now Tao. It has a mixed menu – everything from sushi to spag bol – but I haven’t been there yet to judge.
Barana Breeze (p 103) has dropped its name but the restaurant is still there at Dive Dominica. And it’s good. Check them out on Sundays when they serve BBQ lunches on their waterside terrace.
Ancient Capital (p 103) – the best Chinese restaurant in Roseau – has gone (I weep daily) – so has Tiffany’s (p 103)
