Papillote gardens is one of these rare places which have it all. Located in Trafalgar, very close to famous Trafalgar Falls, it has the same surroundings, almost vertical cliffs full of greenery. These cliffs shelter lush, well maintained gardens run by a botanist with passion for interesting plants, and it shows. The gardens even have their own waterfalls - really... More

Had lunch at Papillote after visiting Trafalgar falls. The meal was delicious. Had the grilled fish along with a fantastic rum punch. The walk around the gardens after lunch was delightful.Would consider staying here during the next visit to Dominica.

We enjoyed Papillote so much the first time we ate there that we went back again a few nights later. The views from the dining patio are wonderful, and we had a blast exploring the gardens. The service from our waitress was impeccable, and the flying fish and dasheen puffs delicious.

Our visit at Papillote was really disappointing. At first I have to mention that the large garden is really wonderful, we visited it some days before. But the dinner was the opposite. We had chosen two full menu offers that should include an entrance, a salad, the main menu, a desert, a glass of house wine and coffee or tea... More

Local traditional dishes, amazing preparation, unbeatable location/view. A GREAT value for the $$. I had no idea what a Dasheen was before we went here and I left with an education and a full stomach. Perfect for a touchdown after hitting some of the local sites or as a romantic night out.

Very good athmosphere and good food. Nice and friendly service. As guest you could use the different hot baths in the garden. The boss Cuthbert is very sympathic. Procès in the average. I highly recommend.
