Dasheene is one of the best restaurants St. Lucia has to offer. Offering unique, trendy yet delicious menu items, the restaurant gets very busy and reservations are highly recommended. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and offers Sunday brunch as well. Some of the restaurant's menu items include omelets, a tropical fruit plate, and homemade pastries with jam for breakfast and traditional St. Lucian dishes like sweet potato and coconut soup, roasted conch, and smoked poulet served with a coconut salad or a Salt Fish dish and green fig salad for dinner.
The restaurant also has an extensive dessert menu which includes the restaurants James Beard award winning Coconut and Banana Brulee and other delicious treats like Rum and Banana Cheesecake with local coffee sauce drizzled on top and Chocolate Rum Mousse. The Executive Chef, Nigel Mitchel, sources locally as much as possible and uses the freshest native ingredients from local farms and plantations in all of his dishes.
If guests are looking to celebrate a special occasion like an engagement or a romantic night with a loved one, they can choose to dine at the Wine Cellar as well. The Wine Cellar is a separate venue within the Dasheene, and offers a private dining experience with a private server who is happy to suggest menu items and wine pairings for an entire night of eating, drinking and relaxation.
