Great local food

We ate here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. It is, indeed, a lovely and relaxed spot from which to watch the world go by in Gros Islet. We both had the spare ribs for one meal and they were the best ribs we have ever had. The service was very good and we enjoyed talking with the... read more

We stopped here after having walked from Gros Islet to Pigeon Island and back. A great little restaurant good service and a great place to watch the world go past as you have your meal and a drink. We had the garlic shrimps, highly recommended.

This is an unassuming and simple restaurant in Gros Islet. Go for the food and gracious welcome of the women running the place. The menu varies depending what is available along with some St. Lucia standards like Mac and Cheese (as good as it gets), breadfruit (our first experience) and plantain. This is a very small establishment so call ahead.... More

We are locals and tried this place for lunch on a Sunday. The personnel could have been warmer initially, but eventually warmed up. We were in a rush, so we ordered take out. The food was excellently presented, even for takeout, was very tasty, abundant and very reasonably priced. Sunday lunch...here we come....

If you are a foodie like me and looking for authentic Creole food, this isn't a place. The food in the restaurant is rather plain and very average whereas the price isn't too chip (consider the taxi to be taken if you are at the resort). The service is very good though.
