Read the reviews and can tell you we were not disappointed. We originally went for the Lobster as a birthday treat, but it was unfortunately out of season, so we opted for Barracuda, King Fish and lamb chops. All were exquisite. The garlic butter is a must try on the Barracuda!! Also try the crab back starter...delicious!! Tranquil surroundings and... More

Food excellent but be aware very large portions. Such a fab location Captain Jack Sparrow could have walked in and I wouldn't have been surprised. Shrimps and Steak were excellent on the night. Location couldn't have been bettered.

Service was amazing and the menu was out of this world … only to be outdone by ambiance. Waiter/waitress were very knowledgable of menu and made great recommendations

Coalpot is a bit pricey but its worth it because the food is great! The smoked salmon and goat cheese salad are so delicious. The restaurant is not too far from the city and the wait between the courses is not that long.

It was moist, flavourful and a good size -definitely a must if you are a sea food lover. I had the Salmon in butter sauce which was also very tasty.One colleague had the shrimp in curry... More

This tiny waterfront restaurant overlooks pretty Vigie Cove but was difficult to find in the dark. They need to put up signs at a few of the turn-offs to point the way! The open air dining room was comfortably cool and breezy and the ambiance was romantic with flickering candlelight and waves lapping at the rocks at the edge of... More

We originally were going to go to the more touristy area (Rodney Bay Village Mall) on our last night for dinner, but our daughter had suggested we try Coal Pot in Castries on the water. Our driver had recommended it the day before, but it's closed on Mondays. What a great decision! Beautiful setting on the water and excellent food... More
