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

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local person and we're so glad we came. It was a lovely walk from town along the beach to Pigeon Island, watching the boats and the seabirds. The restaurant was busy but there was a table for us on the porch right away (about 1 p.m. on a Sunday). We started with... More

We absolutely love this place! True, service is sometimes a bit slow but who cares - unless you're on one the bloody cruise ships that turn up fro time to time and you have to get back before they sail without you?! The staff are lovely - if you smile at them - the food is always good, not fine... More

We heard about this restaurant from some friends we met on the beach, so tried it one day and were thrilled to find they served fish cakes ( which we love on all the Islands ). I loved their Roti, also. Very filling and reasonably priced. They also served a decadent banoffee pie, banana and toffee!! The staff are wonderful... More

This relaxed restaurant is an old favourite. It is situated on Pigeon Island, now joined to the mainland by a causeway. Entrance to the island involves buying a ticket costing 16 EC dollars which gives access to gardens, beaches and an opportunity to walk to the top and to enjoy views over the islands of St Lucia and the distant...

Open late most evenings, we enjoyed dinner here after taking in the beach and hiking on Pigeon Island. Food was really affordable and very tasty. The views were wonderful and the service was very nice.

We had one of the best meals (of many!) in St. Lucia at Jambe De Bois. We went for lunch and then hiked around Pigeon Island. Not only was the food great but there's a beautiful view of boats coming in off of their dock. Their lattes and cappuccinos looked great, though we didn't try them. We will be back... More
