Cre­ole with a Cap­ti­vat­ing View of Castries

Tropical Traveller Magazine - - RECIPES -

Follow the signs from Gov­ern­ment House on Morne For­tune to the Pink Plan­ta­tion House and even if you get a lit­tle lost, you will not re­gret it when you reach this beloved lunch and Sun­day brunch spot. The Pink House is def­i­nitely much more than just a restau­rant, as it is home to the ce­ramic and silkscreen de­sign company, Wild Orchid De­signs, be­hind its cen­tury old roseate walls. Vis­i­tors can take a tour of the lov­ingly-re­stored plan­ta­tion house be­fore or after lunch, and a saunter around the ex­quis­ite grounds is a must. The huge ve­randa is a beau­ti­ful place to en­joy Cre­ole home-style cook­ing, as a fan­tas­tic vista opens out with views of Castries har­bour, as far as Pi­geon Is­land and all the way to Mar­tinique on a clear day. There's a fre­quently chang­ing menu with sea­sonal spe­cials, and owner Michelle El­liot makes sure the in­gre­di­ents are the fresh­est on is­land, the food is ar­tis­ti­cally dis­played and off the charts good. Pick up a hand-painted ce­ramic trea­sure or a silk-screened me­mento of your visit, sign the vis­i­tors' book and prom­ise your­self you'll re­turn to the Pink Plan­ta­tion House.
