We went there for dinner on our anniversary while staying in Marigot. You take a water taxi to get across the bay to the restaurant and as soon as you pull up to the dock you are very impressed. The staff was very welcoming , the food was absolutely wonderful, and the ambiance is perfect for a special night.

Wife and I got a taxi from soufriere which was approx 1 and half hours but it was well worth it. Got dropped at the port where we got a ferry for a short 2 min trip to this lovely, picturesque, restaurant. Was greeted by general manager who kindly offered to take some pics using my camera. Ordered passion fruit... More

Entertainment was great. Food brilliant and ride over on the boat just as good. Only thing that held this back was waiting times for food. Each dish me and my colleagues tried was perfectly coupled flavours and textures with intriguing presentation. Yet having to wait almost an hour and a half between appetisers and mains is not appropriate. The jazz... More

Thank you for your review - we are very happy that you enjoyed the food and the boatride to Rainforest Hideaway! However, we are very concerned about your comments on the delay between the starter and main course. It is inconceivable that there would be such a long gap between the two courses, especially in summer when we have a... More

Loved Rainforest Hideaway, we visited twice for our honeymoon. First time I've tasted several different culinary combinations and they were all fantastic. If you'd like to treat yourself, it's on the pricey side but well worth a visit.

This was definitely the nicest meal we had on St. Lucia. The quality and presentation were excellent and you can't beat the romantic atmosphere--even the boat ride over was romantic! Two things you should know--for the boys, this is fine dining...portions are fine, just not huge so you 'll need to do all the courses. For boys and girls...put on... More

Glad you enjoyed the food and romance! Sorry to hear about the mosquitoes - in fact Rainforest Hideaway is mis-named because it's in the mangroves not actually in a Rainforest.. most mosquitoes can't breed in salt water - but there will always be a few around. Wherever you go in the tropics it's a good idea to spray yourself. We... More

Thank you! We love the description, 'classy cuisine' - of course it's not easy to obtain the range of ingredients we need for some of our special dishes, although wherever we can we use local ingredients from herbs and spices to lionfish. More
