Of course it wasn't always called Loterie Farm; it was before called Loterie Plantation but the word plantation is indicative of forced labor so we don't like to use that word anymore. It's cute when you're using it in terms of a restaurant that might sit in the middle of a city but out here this was a real plantation.
Today, Loterie Farm preserves and protects Mother Nature with the same respect that it does the memory of the slaves that labored this land some 160 years ago.
Amongst a good number of travel writers and gourmet magazines, Bon Appétit Magazine featured this treehouse-like eatery in its February 2005 issue. The Hidden Forest Café's setting and ambiance are as eco as the dishes are culinary using the freshest ingredients found on island, each garnished with flowers, fruits and vegetables grown on the nature reserve itself.
Mangoes, Bananas, Sour Sop, Coconuts, Papaya… with over 1000 species growing on the reserve, the Hidden Forest Café is notorious for serving succulent dishes garnished with fruits and vegetables homegrown. Those same natural products find their way to the Tree Lounge where tropical cocktails are concocted, namely Loterie's signature drink Sex in the Tree, and served in a relaxing social setting.
