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

Visited twice while on holiday, it was that good! The first visit was after dark, went with a local family member and we were made extremely welcome. We ordered seafood lasagne and lamb curry, the lamb curry was fantastic (Caribbean curry) I was informed that the 3 seafood lasagnes were excellent if a little on the large size (shouldn't complain...

Good fish. Very tasty dorado. It was busy and some impatient people were there but the staff was always gracious and patient. Don't plan to rush in and get a quick to go. They will make take away but it's not a fast food restaurant. Sit down and enjoy yourself your on holiday after all!

A place we always highly recommend to our guests as an outdoor restaurant with a beautiful view, staff are extremely friendly, they feel like family. Food specials change from day to day and there is also a set menu for meals and cocktails. A wonderful place to sit, relax and enjoy the food and friendship.

We ate here 5 times in our 2 week vacation - it being the nearest place to our accommodation and recommended by the owner of our apartment complex - we tried lunch and dinners. The food was good especially; the fish cakes, roti , flying fish and macaroni cheese, the coconut cake and the banana crumble we enjoyed the cocktails... More
