This unpretentious spot in downtown Soufrière is the lair of Chef Orlando Satchell, who gained local fame during his years helming the kitchen of Ladera's Dasheene Restaurant. In 2012 Chef Orlando opened his eponymous restaurant and bar in downtown Soufrière, and the love just keeps coming. Orlando is one of the island's pioneers in chasing down local and sustainable foods from St. Lucian farmers and producers. So that means you'll dine on dishes made with fruit, veggies, fish, and even pork grown right here on the island. Think roasted callaloo and pumpkin soup, mahi-mahi fritters, chicken in cassava crust, yellowfin tuna on grilled watermelon, and Creole bread. The restaurant may be small and un-fancy, but the food is often off-the-charts wonderful.
