As you will recall from my last entry, I had an awful night of it
so waking the next morning was not easy. We had some major
disasters at our
hotel and ending up checking out within hours.
Luckliy, I had a hotel
inspection that morning at the newly reopened
and managed TAIWANA on the
gorgeous Anse des Flamands just 5 minutes
away from our hotel. The manager
showed us a two bedroom suite with
private pool and cliffhanging views of the
bay all the way to St.
We moved in seconds, but only after
enjoying a superb lunch at the
TAIWANA Restaurant. At lunch it is simple
cuisine and at dinner it
tunrs into PacRi, one of the island's more well
known Italian dining
spots (which we won't get to).
Samuel had a beatiful
huge CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD, WIll kept it simple
with the CAPRESE of
magnificent quality tomatoes and mozzarella and I
ordered the BROCHETTE de
CREVETTES, two skwers of tasty grilled shrimp
with magnificnet sides of
Potatoes Dauphinois that had an
unreal crunch on top from the broiler, Onion
Marmelade (for the
shrimp) and Leek Compote. My tummy was okay again and we
were back in
We could not wait to return after packing up, as
we knew TAIWANA would
be a dreamy hotel to be at. (and it is).
now been here a day and just had lunch with Samuel and Will
another CAPRESE with lush tomatoes and rich mozzarella.
I loved the simple
yet well seasoned and large appetier of CEVICHE of
Mahii-Mahi (dorado or
daurade, locally) and Samuel said the fries were
fab (they were).
dinner tonight is at the famous Relais et Chateux hotel Le
Toiny in their top
rated Le Gaiac Restaurant.
