We live in Calibishie and way back in the 1980s when we first started coming to the Nature Island, thatâ€™s where Domcanâ€™s was.
We ate there then and in some ensuing years and it was always great: The food was wonderful, the prices reasonable, and the view from the table and the ambiance were admirable. Only one thing has changed since â€“ Domcanâ€™s has moved to Castle Bruce.
You can visit Domcanâ€™s virtually by visiting Domcan’s Retreat dot Com. Castle Bruce is a village about midway down on Dominicaâ€™s east (Atlantic) coast. From Roseau take any road inland that goes to the Pond Casse roundabout and then head east toward the Emerald Pool. Keep going until you reach Castle Bruce, then turn left and head uphill.
Domcanâ€™s will be on your right within about a mile. From Melville Hall Airport, turn right at the airport exit and go through the town of Marigot. After Marigot, at Hatton Garden, turn left as if you were heading to Carib Territory (passing the entrance to the now closed Silkâ€™s Resort). Proceed through Carib Territory. There are occasional road signs giving the distance to Castle Bruce, and Domcanâ€™s will appear on your left before you reach the village proper.
Harry is an expatriate Dutch via Canada. His wife Grace is Dominica. Sheâ€™s the cook, and a terrific one!
I recommend calling 767-445-7794 to check to see if what you would like is available on the menu. Call a day or two ahead if possible, because although Harry & Grace call Castle Bruce â€œcentrally locatedâ€, it is far from any other dining amenities.
Weâ€™ve never stayed at Domcanâ€™s but weâ€™ve seen the lodging accommodations they offer. Theyâ€™re very nice, clean, and modern (with cable TV) and very reasonable priced at US$70 per night with meals at the restaurant 10% off to lodgers.
