Service at The Palisades Restaurant is in full swing and all of us at Fort Young Hotel are thrilled by the feedback we’ve received thus far. We’ve harnessed our landmark location along the Caribbean Sea and designed the space to feature a more open floor plan and indoor-outdoor setting to capitalise on our treasured views—all complemented by a new and inventive menu. Get a sneak peek inside the new Palisades below; but, we must admit, it’s truly best experienced firsthand. Join us and get a real taste of the Nature Island.
With a prime waterfront location, the expanded indoor-outdoor deck features a state-of-the-art, open design. Guests enjoy al fresco dining on the wrap-around balcony while taking in far-reaching ocean vistas and the soothing, island breeze under a canopied roof.
The balcony is comprised of Epay and Guyanese Greenheart wood, much of it reclaimed from the hotel’s rooms that were damaged from Hurricane Maria.
A dramatic sloping apex ceiling with roof lights flows down to the dining area below. This design element was an intentional and efficient way of adding natural light to the dining room space while providing a visual connection to the restaurant’s open show kitchen.
Separated by retractable accordion doors, the indoor/outdoor dining space allows guests to indulge in the utmost fine dining experience and the only air-conditioned restaurant interior in Roseau.
A Revived Menu
Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, The Palisades Restaurant continues to offer fresh, flavorful, locally-sourced ingredients straight from nearby farms and the Caribbean Sea. Breakfast consists of satiating staples like eggs, bacon, yogurt parfaits, local fruit and more.
Changing regularly based on the day’s bounty, the lunch buffet includes a robust salad bar, a carving station and a soup station, among other fare.
Though many of the restaurant’s signature dinner dishes remain, such as locally-caught Lionfish Bon Femme, Fort “Nut” Soup and Char Grilled Lobster, there are also new additions like Palisades Hot Rock Tuna (below) and Jerk Octopus.
Sunday brunch is a new offering, focusing on local cuisine at a contemporary level. Dishes include smoked salmon; assorted bread and spreads; and omelette and waffle-making stations.
