We were in St Lucia for New Years and ate in Gross Islet every night for the week. This was by far the worst of the week. Staff friendly but that's about it. No real view and food was awful. We are not overly picky but even the fresh catch did not seem fresh. With so many choices in Gross... More

Staff were friendly, but the food was average at best. And what we had was very slow - and normally we don't mind 'slow', but this was excessive. There are much better places locally.

Sorry to hear that your visit was not what you had hoped for and that you found the service slow. This is certainly not what we strive for and we do apologise. At this point I can't comment on what the issue might have been on that particular evening in question as I don't remember an evening when we had... More

The restaurant is right on the water and a very nice setting. The food was very good. The owner Cathy is very nice and friendly. We had a group of 10 and everyone loved it.

We ate at Jacques on a quiet (somewhat rainy) evening in March. The restaurant is at a charming spot at the end of Reduit looking across to the marina and was a short walk from the Royal where we were staying. The location is perfect and both the appetizers and entrees were well prepared and an excellent showcase for local... More

We are so pleased to hear that you like our location as much as we do, it is a little off the beaten track but worth the short walk from the main hotels in Rodney Bay. We get lots of good comments about the vegetables, once a lady told me she couldn't believe her husband actually ate the vegetables! it... More

I had the most amazing experience at their Jazz brunch. So much variety, delicious (yet really healthy) food, soothing music, waterfront view, polite staff and at a really affordable price! The dessert options were endless and i certainly left satisfied. This is something that I would love to do again with my family...Cant wait!

This group has put together the elements that click. It's waterfront for a start. On a beautiful island. The staff do what they do with a flair. The decor can be called waterfront island cozy.
