  • This is really a hidden gem lunch spot. Off the main road and up the hill. If you’re walking it’s probably a steep uphill for 10 min, not bad , that’s what we did. If by car they have a parking lot...

  • Beautiful! Very limited menu, more choices on the weekend. I didn't trust driving my little car all the way to the top as it is very steep, narrow, and the first part of the drive has a lot of unevenness... The walk was short but steep and very manageable.... View is incredible... Bought some necklaces from the shop and enjoyed a tasty beer....
  • Family owned business. Tour the garden. Try some local eats. Food is available Wednesday through Sunday. All the dishes we ordered were delicious & so fresh! The views are worth it. Get some homemade jams & homemade sorbet or ice-cream too. We ended up eating here 3 times during our trip and bringing more friends with us each time. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!!!
  • This was wonderful. We got the platter of 5 different dishes. All of them good. They were out of all except 1 kind of beer but that's life when going to a a family restaurant on a tiny island. The fresh pineapple juice was great. No big deal. It is a serious hike up the mountain and I think it would be very difficult for a scooter or small car to drive up. The vanilla was 1000 Franc and grown on the property. There are some very whiny people that left reviews. If you are reading this, know that there is not an elevator taking you to the top of the mountain. It is steep.
  • The Garden sits on top of the Mt. Amazing beautiful view of the valley along with both the island coves. There are so many tropical flowers and plants . There is a snack bar with amazing samples of local jam and jelly. Fresh Fruit as well as some souvenir items.
  • Good views. Tough to get to as you may require a car small enough to fit through the narrow roads. That or you can hike up and reward yourself with fresh drinks.
