Eat 'n Sleep Dominica :: Pirates and Beer Near Roseau
Our Eat 'n Sleep feature profiles a restaurant in a random city and a hotel nearby. It's kinda like that old show "Dinner and a Movie" but you know, with restaurants and hotels. And better jokes.
Dominica, as we've already told you, is a real up-and-comer, with a bit more of an adventure feel to it than some other Caribbean islands. And its lovely capital, Roseau, is the perfect place to hide away and live out your pirate fantasies.
A good hotel option in Roseau is the Fort Young Hotel tucked away on the outskirts of the city. You can get a winter special there with the seventh night free after you pay for six nights; you can also get the "Pirates Trail" special for $95 a night, including breakfast and a welcome rum or fruit punch, plus options for a bunch of pirate-like tours.
After all that swashbuckling gets your appetite growling, a short drive takes you to the Tamarind Tree Restaurant (also part of a hotel complex if the Fort Young is fully booked). The Tamarind Tree is full of local meals but is most famous for being the only place that serves Kubuli Draft beer.
