Yes, you can eat here even if you are not staying at this resort. However, do you really want to come here if you have to negotiate the 1.5 mile road from hell that where it takes about 10-15 mins. to get to? Well…
This resort (Anse Chastanet) is strange. It is partnered with Jade Mountain. What I learned is that really management doesn’t want you to come here at all. Why? Because they purposefully ensure that the road is beyond horrible-to keep non-guests out of here and purposefully away from the beach and the snorkeling area. They figure their guests will tolerate a beyond 3rd world road once on the way in and once on the way back to avoid having to deal with other tourists, the locals (except those serving them) or anyone else. I could not imagine being a local working here and dealing with the shuttle van driving you down this twice a day or a delivery van having to deal with it as well. The ownership should be utterly ashamed of themselves.
We showed up on a Saturday night around 8:30 and parked in their small lot. The security staff seemed surprised (and my wife was surprised we didn’t skid off the heinously maintained road to our premature deaths even at 5 miles per hour). They shuttled us down to the restaurant. Naturally, they asked if we had a reservation. Naturally, since it was off season, the restaurant was not even half full if that. So somehow we got seated-jeez, thanks.
The setting is nice-just off the beach and the sea. The menu is nice-and not extravagantly priced. The menu was as it was shown on their website and we tried the Murge Ki Khurchan (Shredded Chicken Tikka), the Salmon Gulnar and the Machli Chat (Mahi Mahi). All were fine as far as Indian style cuisine go but nothing was close to transcendent and then we finished off the meal with a creamy chocolate dessert.
And then back off to the road from hell, never to return and probably a good riddance from their staff since we were not staying at either this resort or the absurdly overpriced Jade Mountain which actually, since it sits low and very, very far away-doesn’t even have a decent view of the Pitons like the place we stayed way up above Soufriere with a perfect view of them. To quote Johnny Rotten, ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?
