4 Trendy and Out of Town Restaurants in Dominica Where You Should Definitely Eat This Summer!

“Eating is a necessity, but cooking is an art”. 

When it comes to food tasting and exhilarating culinary experiences, the Nature isle, Dominica, never disappoints! If you’re reading this blog post today and you’ve ever been to Dominica, then you and I can agree that some of the best flavors in the Caribbean are in Waitukubuli land. And it’s not even independence season yet.( (Don’t let me get started on Independence delicacies).

So here are 4 absolutely awesome restaurants that you should try out before the summer ends…

Keepin’ It Real, Toucari Beach Restaurant (Toucari, Dominica)

Food 1 - Toucari
Lobster Delight. This could totally be yours.                                                                Photo credits: Zaimis Olmos Visual Arts 

Anyone who is currently on the Nature Isle knows that Toucari Beach “is” the place to be this summer. Whether it’s for a casual Sunday afternoon with family at the beach or a public holiday vibes, it’s always a good time to go to Toucari (unless it’s raining). And while there, you owe it to yourself (and your tastebuds) to try their tasty lobster. In fact, the only acceptable reason you have for not having eaten at “Keepin’it Real” in Toucari, is, not being on the Nature Isle, Dominica. So just go there already. Summer is almost over. Don’t be the only one who didn’t have the Toucari Experience!

CocoYea! (Soufriere, Dominica)

Food 2 - Cocoyeah
Cocoyea! Bar and Grill, Menu Display

On the southwest coast of the island, you have the beautiful village of Soufriere. Whether you’re going to Soufriere to have the “best snorkeling experience of your life”, to indulge in the legendary Soufriere Sulphur Springs or simply to visit friends, make it your duty (like, literally) to stop at CocoYeah restaurant there. They offer a delectable array of food options that would make you just want to stay. And you might never look at food the same way again. Ever.

Greenhouse Sports Bar and Grill (Mero, Dominica)

Quite a popular spot for a Friday (or Saturday) night out, the Greenhouse Sports Bar is located in Mero, a pretty convenient area since there is a beach nearby (I told you the Nature Isle never disappoints). This spot is pretty easy to spot, especially at night. It’s almost always crowded whenever I go there, and that says something. I usually go with the fish options, but you can pick pretty much anything on the menu. And the cocktails are pretty awesome too.

Le Flambeau Restaurant (Portsmouth, Dominica)

Food 4 - Le Flambeau

Le Flambeau restaurant is located in Picard Estate, Portsmouth. It’s a great option for breakfast, lunch and dinner when visiting Portsmouth during the week, on special occasions on the weekend, and if you’re staying at the Portsmouth beach hotel. They have a great assortment of local flavors for lunch and dinner, but for breakfast, make sure you try their Island Pancakes!

  1. Hey Rachel, great to know! I have not been to Riverside recently, but I know it has a good reputation as well! Will make sure to add a blog post on it when I get the chance to go there!

  2. We loved Riverside Cafe in LaPlaine! So many things about Dominica make me want to make the trip again, but the food at Riverside is certainly one of them!❤
