An enormous terrace dotted with palm trees, cafe tables and the flags of eight Caribbean areas distinguishes this pavilion. Two low, glass-faced structures with Spanish tile roofs exhibit and offer for sale many island products - among them tortoise-shell jewelry, straw hats and bags, wood carvings and ceramics. The dominating building is a large restaurant and bar. Hung with colorful headgear, the restaurant presents steel bands, calypso singers and Caribbean dancers. Dishes include pumpkin soup, suckling pig, plantain (a variety of banana) and a dessert which is made of fresh coconut meat. Rum drinks and coconut milk are featured at the bar.
* Admission: free.
