Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.

My wife Ruth and I have just returned from Sunday brunch at the newly-opened River Rush and I just couldn’t wait to write this review. River Rush is an exclusive resort in Dominica’s Rainforest situated between two rivers. The resort is incomplete as of today (23Aug09) although both should be finished soon.

Meanwhile, until the cottages are finished the restaurant is only open for Sunday brunch, served from 10AM – 2PM. The cost is moderate: EC$50 per person (plus cash bar) for a very good-tasting brunch with copious quantities and very wide selections.

We had omelets, which were served with two pancakes, home fries, sausages and bacon and a star fruit and parsley garnish. And (Ready for this homesick Americans?) Thomas’ English muffins! It was more than Ruth could finish.

River Rush is a lovely setting, at Duex Branche, along the road between Marigot and the Pond Casse roundabout, just west of the Central Forest Reserve. It’s well marked with a sign. River bathing there is an extra treat. A nice gravel path and stone steps lead from the restaurant to the river.

For me an extra-special treat was being allowed to jam with the live musicians, Mo the proprietor on sax and a keyboard player. I play harmonica. The music, whether you join-in like I did or simply listen as most everyone else does, is jazz and very, very good. Photos via
