Beau Rive (www.beaurive.com 767-445-8992) is a truly outstanding “old world charm” hotel in Castle Bruce run by its proprietor Mark Steele.

The hotel normally serves only breakfasts and suppers and only to its guests and its fare is table d’hôte. But because we’re friends and because it was our 37th wedding anniversary and our daughter was visiting from the US and her and best friend and former college roommate paid an additional surprise visit, and because he wasn’t full up with guests and thus had a table free, Mark consented to provide us a meal even though we were not hotel guests.

The meal was outstanding. We had tomato tart appetizers, coconut chicken with breadfruit garnish entree (our daughter Mathilda, a vegetarian, had a special veggie plate) and fruit crumble with ice cream dessert and coffee & tea. The ambience was wonderful, with soft jazz playing and jasmine scent occasionally wafting through.

If you’re visiting Dominica, or live here and want a classy getaway, you can do no better than to lodge at Beau Rive.

Big Papa's Restaurant & Sports Bar

Big Papa’s Restaurant & Sports Bar was a big disappointment. We went on a night the restaurant had advertised specials, but we found the menu limited because supposedly it was the regular chef’s night off. It was also the regular waiter’s night off, and the replacement knew nothing and could do less. They also had no fruit juices or sodas, only alcoholic drinks to offer. The food was not very good and the price was high.

They offer “free” Internet and we had our laptop with us. The Internet was free, but the wireless connection did not work, and they demanded $5 for “electricity” and to use a wired connection. The wait for the food was over an hour. And coffee at the end of dinner came in a tiny espresso cup, but was regular coffee. This place is only steps from two good restaurants, the Purple Turtle and the Blue Bay. We suggest you go to one of them instead.
