This is a delightful beach bar with the furniture carved out of driftwood etc. If you are visiting Pigeon Island and that is a must then you should seek out this bar. It serves really good food. We went there a couple of times this time and although the service is a little too Carribean on occasion, the food is... More

Really nice characterful restaurant right by the water with fantastic views. The food is good but not great, even so this is well worth a visit. Fish and curry dishes were best. Not cheap but nothing on this island is! Would visit again.

We went there with a large family group, had AMAZING mango daiquiris and bought art in their little art gallery. Very secluded and quaint, and the staff were awesome.

We were really delighted to visit this gorgeous little restaurant again on our latest trip to St Lucia and found it even better than last time. The new terrace especially was lovely to sit out on and enjoy the views of Rodney Bay while we ate a delicious lunch. We really enjoy the food here and the prices are sooooo... More

A great little restaurant on Pigeon Island and right on the shore line facing Rodney Bay. A lot of the outdoor furniture is constructed from driftwood and bits of sailing ship etc, looks wonderful . The place is run and owned by Barbara , a Cornish lady whose been here awhile , just wonder how many Cornish pirates made it... More

While on Pigeon Island, (no longer an island) you MUST have lunch at Jambe de Bois. The recent upgrade of the facilities are excellent. The lamb roti is delicious and the fish as fresh as is possible. Salads are superb. Yesterday I had the Chicken and Avocado Salad, just a lovely combination. The service is excellent with happy ladies serving.... More

Unassuming little cafe turns out to be really charming. This is helped by its waterfront location, with fantastic views, wonderful local food and warm service. The furniture that appears to be made from remnants of the fort is a nice touch. Worth a visit to Pigeon Island on its own.

Whilst waiting for the installation of a new engine in the got, I spent every Sunday here having lunch and a relaxing afternoon. Such friendly staff and a view to die for. Free WiFi, a room put aside for books to swop free of charge, art for sale all in a stone building restored without being spoiled surrounded by trees... More

Jambe De Bois is located on the waters edge on Pigeon Island, a short walk from the car park, next to the second beach or if you arrive by boat more likely than not opposite where you land. The food is simple, tasty and well priced. We had a light lunch, the lamb roti was fantastic, plenty of melt in... More

We were on Pigeon Island just to see the historical sites (Fort Rodney), and decided to take a chance on this isolated restaurant. Rustic with outdoor and indoor (sans A/C) seating, the view was of Gros Islet Bay, across from the Sandel's resort We were at first hesitant since there were no patrons there even though it was lunchtime. We... More
