The ambiance is absolutely perfect! We had the most delicious dinner. The Goat Cheese salad is the best starter on earth. I had the Scottish Salmon and my hubby had the Kingfish. Both delicious! Pretty wide wine selection. Highly recommend this place!!

The food was amazing, had the best crème brulee ever! We had fish jumping no more than 5ft from our table! Awesome location, don't let the prices scare you, they're in Carribean dollars! (2.5 to 1USD)

Overlooking a river, you can sometimes see the fish swimming. Good selection of fish and some meat cooked in various sauces/styles. Consistent which is why we visit regularly.

Off the beaten path near the airport, this is a just a gem of a place. The warm baked bread with garlic butter was yummy. The tomatoes and mozzarella cheese was delicious and beautifully presented. I had a salad and my friend had a creole chicken. Both satisfying and plentiful. Couple the solid food with kind wait staff and a... More

When we found brown sugar restaurant closed on a Monday the cab driver suggested Coal Pot. It was more money than we had planned on spending but by far the best food and service we had all week. With no reservation the hostess reluctantly sat us at the backside of restaurant which still was beautifully decorated with full view of... More

What a great place! Its right on the water in a quite corner of the bay. You could not ask for a better view for lunch. The menu is on a chalk board with everything pretty much up to date (although they were out of a few things when we were there). My wife had the lobster and she pronounced... More

The setting, overlooking a bay of the Caribbean is just beautiful! We sat at the water's edge and enjoyed the lights across the bay and the small crafts coming and going. The food was mixed: a warm goat cheese appetizer was wonderful as was the Callaloo soup. The main courses were a selection of meats or fish with a choice... More

We went for dinner. The menu appears not to have really changed over time and all the old classics were ther. We had shrimp cocktail calamari creole and coqulle St Jacques for starters which were all good. If I am honest the csj was about half as good as the Big Chef's. We had the duck with red wine source... More
