The menu is huge!
There really is something for every taste; From Spain to Germany, France, Italy back to Haiti, from ocean to meadows, you will eat your fill at Habitation Turpin.
The dining room is scattered throughout a beautifully lush tropical garden, the ambiance is friendly and relaxed. When we were there, the music was great. Pleasant without being overwhelming.

I had my first "authentic" German meal outside of Germany at Habitation Turpin.

Some wurst, roasted potatoes, goulash, red cabbage, it was great.

During Oktoberfest they had a special selection of German beers, more than the main stream stuff we find at Caribbean/Giant supermarket in Petionville.

Nice work, and keep it up!

The place is very charming with a cost romantic atmosphere: if the weather is good you can dine sitting outside surrounded by trees. The rum sour and the appetizers are delicious — only a few vegan options (none as main course!)! My friend had a problem with the price charged for her order. They wanted to charge her almost double the price that was in the menu, saying that her fish weighted much more than the regular size (according to which parameters??) — we had to discuss a lot and only when the kind owner came to intervene we managed to pay less (still not the price from the menu, anyway...).

Hello Renata,

thank you so much for the comments. You missed our main course vegan option - it is pasta (vegan style) with Haitian mushrooms. In regards to the price of the fish. Please know that your friend was not over charged.As indicated in the menu, the cost of a whole fish starts at USD 18.00 and it is labeled 1 pound. Your friend chose a 2 pounder and the fish was shown to your friend before. The parameters you are questioning are simple: each fish is weighed before preparation. This is regular restaurant procedure - anywhere in the world. A fish of 1 pound cannot have the cost of a fish of 2 pounds... nowhere in the world. My husband did not "intervene", he just wanted to accommodate you, as we always try to make our customers happy. I hope to see you soon again.

This Resturant which is just next door to kinam hotel is one f the best places to dine in haiti. The couples who owned it are wonderful we ordered seafood platter for two It was a lot. Wished it had come with a side dish though but it's delicious and the home made hot sauce is the best
