Whenever I stay at the Marriott Port-au-Prince I'm tempted to enjoy all of my meals at the on-site La Sirene Restaurant. Yes, it's really that good. On my last visit, though, a meeting at Les Jardins du Mupanah compelled me to switch things up a bit. Boy am I glad I did!
The new restaurant at the city's famed Musee du Pantheon National (MUPANAH), Les Jardins du Mupanah is in its design every bit as artful and elegant as the museum it now accompanies.
The entire structure is a large air-conditioned glass enclosure; an oversized glass greenhouse, of sorts surrounded by verdant flowering plants and trees in the gardens just outside. The effect of the atmosphere gives you the sense that you're actually dining outside in the garden, minus the heat, of course.
Whimsical bright-white interior support columns mimicking trees advance the elegant art garden feel of the place.
Attentive and impeccably-dressed servers and a fabulous menu of mostly local Haitian dishes plated with panache further solidified Les Jardins du Mupanah's standing as my new "other" favorite restaurant in Port-au-Prince.
