Great potential the location is great right on the bay. The food however decidedly average to poor. Very hit and miss as to when it comes out and if it's hot or not. The food is over priced for what it is, won't be returning.

We popped in for lunch one wet afternoon. We sat out in the Bay area and ordered meatballs and croquettes to start followed by crab and king prawn linguine. Couple of drinks too. All tasted good and we felt it was ok all round.

Firstly, the positives are that the location of this restaurant is very scenic and the service we received was excellent. However, the food was poor and, in our opinion, over priced. We ordered a vegetarian platter for two, a small Piton and a bottle of water and it came to $75. The bread was oddly sweet, the spinach and pine... More

The atmosphere is very romantic and well presentable restaurant. The food on the other hand was not all that good. The food first of all came out late when we were promised that it wouldnt have. Secondly it was cold by the time we received it. The shrimp we ordered had too much battered dough coated in it. Suggestion cook... More

My lady and I had a wonderful romantic dinner at few nights ago. The view of the bay was amazing and we enjoyed the atmosphere. Both the food itself and the portions were fanatic. All the staff members that we interacted with (five in total) were very friendly and accommodating. They were always smiling and had a great sense of... More

I love coming to Tapas for lunch. The restaurant sits over the Marina and lunch is a comfortable and cool occasion. I eat here whenever I come to Rodney Bay. I invariably go for the Salad Nicoise and I ask for some homemade bread to be served with it. My son had a great steak frites. Local fruit juices are... More

We have had two lunches here and both have been fantastic. The flat breads and dips are a must. The homemade soup was delicious, the mussels and burger are also very good. All the staff are very helpful and children friendly. Five stars to the restrooms also.

We have been visiting St Lucia for 27 years so always like to try something new, we've always liked Big Chef and this offshoot attracted us to try it out one evening. Lots of choices on the menu, for 2 we selected 6 options we liked and these came with freshly baked bread and 2 huge glasses of house red... More
