Influenced by the guidebook, we stopped here for a snack. Ordered a bunch of stuff, including the dasheen (taro) puffs (excellent) and a shrimp snack. The 5 very tiny shrimp cost us exactly $6 EACH. Wow! And the price on the bill was higher than the one on the menu. Wondered why that was the case - if you have... More

Helen from my sisters tours recommended this beautiful restaurant in the rainforest of Dominica. Scenery from inside with the open air setting was breathtaking and the food was fantastic!

Good food in a beautiful setting. We stopped by for lunch during our island tour. Be sure to walk around and bring swimsuit for the hot spring.

Every year I visit Dominica I end up at Papillote with my family of very picky eaters and they absolutely love this place - just as much as I do if not more. This is a very peaceful place, in yet another lush region of Dominica, away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. While waiting for your... More

We had a great lunch and subsequent walk around the garden of the restaurant - beautiful views of rainforest plants, flowers and a waterfall

We stayed at Papillote on the 3 day adventure package with the MAP including breakfast and dinner. The food selection was limited, but good. The service was prompt and friendly.

Our group of eight visited the restaurant and preordered before visiting the falls. A smart idea. We were ready for a rest when we returned for lunch. All the fish and chicken dishes were well prepared and delicious. We did not have time to visit the pool or gardens. This place is so pretty, and located in the middle of... More

This is a great location to enjoy a leisurely lunch if you have time to spare. The rainforest scenery is spectacular but plan on about two hours just to have sandwiches. If time is limited, go elsewhere as the food really doesn't equal the view.

The food was delicious, the service good and afterwards we enjoyed the hot pools. There are changing rooms to use so that you can wear the right attire. Overall, a lovely experience and recommended for those visiting the Trafalgar area.
