This place was inside the national park and omg was it a great place to have lunch. If you are going to spend any time on pigeon island you have to check this place out. Now the service was really slow but with the view it really seems like no time at all! Its an open aired restaurant with a... More

I was in St Lucia in April ,Pigeon Island was my favourite beach, no hassle,and not overcrowded,water is clear and warm with plenty of fish to look at also the small land crabs are quite funny in their movements, though there is a charge to use this beach it is worth it.The walk to the fort is not as bad...

A small beach bar/restaurant situated on Pigeon Island serving home cooked fare. Amazing views of the beach, Reduit Bay and so peaceful. The furniture is mainly fashioned from driftwood and there are almond trees to shade you whilst you eat and drink. Very reasonable prices too. A must visit if on Pigeon Island I would say. Enjoy!

Eclectic and cool. Local artwork hung on the walls. It reminded me of a coffee house but without the coffee and more of home cooked food. There is seating inside the high thatched roof and seating outside in some shade over looking the sea. I ate the seafood lasagna, which was very appetizing. My wife had vegetable roti, a local...

We visit Pigeon Island every year by boat, go for a walk up to the court and the interpretation centre (unfortunately now closed) - and we always have lunch at Jambe de Bois (formerly Snooty Agouti). Depending on when you arrive, and the number of cruise ship visitors, the service by the pleasant all-women (run off their feet) staff can... More

Nice place that would have to try very hard not to get business given its wonderful location. Clearly on the circuit of the tour companies but the rustic charm of the place has not been lost. The driftwood seating outside combined with the shade and view across the bay make this a very attractive option. Located inside the Pigeon Island... More

Whilst the food is nothing to write home about we were happy with our choice to stop by. We had seafood salad and andwiches - whilst the portion was tiny on a huge bed of greens the price was acceptable. The very casual setting was well worth the stop - it is more like a snack place rather than a... More
