We took a short break at Fond Doux to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised when we turned up for dinner on the night to find our table beautifully decorated with flowers spelling out 'CONGRATS'. That was very touching. The restaurant's casual elegance, delicious cuisine, friendly staff and excellent service all combined to make it a truly... More

We spent a week at the Resort and ate in the Jardin Cacao several evenings. Overall, the meals were excellent - with all the soups outstanding. All the main courses we selected were tasty and well prepared. Even our teenage children enjoyed their meals - which was a surprise for us! The ambience in the restaurant was beautiful - nicely...

We ate at Jardin after our tour of the Fond Doux Plantation (an enjoyable walking tour) and found the food to be enjoyable. We were served a buffet of local dishes with chicken, ground provisions (potato, carrots, etc) and vegetables. Dishes had a nice spice. Seating was very pleasant in a covered outdoor venue and service was attentive.

Although the breakfast was nice, I found the dinner menu to be very limited. Even though I did not like the food on the dinner menu (it had 4 entrees and changed weekly), one of the servers was rude and disrespectful and made the dinning experience unpleasant and unwelcoming.
