We visited Golden Taste for lunch after looking for somewhere that would offer local food...we weren't disappointed. The place was full of locals with a regular stream of takeaway orders being picked up as well. Menu of about 10 dishes all served with rice, pie,...More

This is our second visit to Gros Islet and our third to Golden Taste. We have never been disappointed. My hubby had BBQ ribs each time and that's a recommendation, since we're from the American South. I have enjoyed the fish sticks (blue marlin, unexpected,...More

If you want to try home creole cooking and fresh local fish then do stop over here. Prices are reasonable and its a fun street vibe, run by some wonderful local women. Highly recommend it.

Wonderful authentic Creole cuisine. We both had the grilled lambi which is something we could never find in a restaurant at home. Also Gros Islet is a wonderful break from the touristy atmosphere of Rodney Bay. Make this a definite stop during your visit to...More

I don't understand all the rave reviews. The food wasn't bad but it also wasn't good. Nothing was very flavorful and much seemed heavily fried. Good friendly service and decent atmosphere, but I'd be reluctant to recommend it for the food.

A pleasant place with friendly staff. Mainly local cuisine on the menu and the quality is fine. Not cheap, but I guess similar prices to most places. A safe bet for an evening meal.

We had lunch at Golden Taste, very good food despite a lukewarm welcome. We had the lambi, ordered 2 servings for 4 and that was good. Rum punch was delicious, lots of local people eating there, and taking meals out. We would definitely recommend it.

We came here 2 nights out of 3. Fantastic food. Very fresh. My husband eats meat and fish but as a veggie I still had plenty of choice and the veg was great. Highly recommend for excellent value and flavour.
