The prestigious magazine Travel+Leisure has named a Saint Lucia restaurant among the best in world for 2020.
“Tucked into the hillside amongst the riotously colorful rooftops of Soufrière is a restaurant that beautifully expresses the spirit of St. Lucia and makes full use of the tropical produce and foodways of the Caribbean,” the magazine said of Orlando’s, which is owned by Chef Orlando Satchell.
” It’s obvious that Satchell comes from the luxury-hospitality world,” the publication stated.
It observed that he worked in London hotels and then at Soufrière’s Ladera Resort before opening Orlando’s in 2012.
Travel+Leisure praised Satchell’s cuisine and said his plating is reminiscent of the upscale wedding food of the ’80s—’in a really fun way.’
It also highlighted the ‘endless hospitality of the Saint Lucia Chef and his staff.
Writing Saturday on his official Facebook page, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet said he was extremely proud of Chef Orlando Satchell who’s restaurant has been listed as one of the World’s Best Restaurants in 2020 by @travelandleisure.
“What makes this achievement even more special is that this Saint Lucian Restaurant is the only Caribbean restaurant to make the list. Simply amazing,” Chastanet, a former Minister of Tourism, declared.
