“felt the most authentic place to eat on the bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

I am suprised that at the time of writing this place is bottom of the Marigot bay list, as for us it was the best !!
I had really juicy & well seasoned chicken for main, with "cristofin" which I had never eaten before, whilst the vegetable itself is nothing much it had been done with grating topping.
the Mr Wife, had a 3 course deal which cost about the same as mains at the other restaurants here, starter & dessert forgettable - though they made us laugh, but his main was generous with well seasoned fish, chicken & prawn.
great service, with chatty informative staff.
& of course you get the ubiquitous view & mangrove setting...

“Delightful surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

My wife and I stumbled on this restaurant by accident. We wanted to go to the Rainforest Hideaway but learned that it wasn't open for lunch so we just ate at JJs. We were disappointed at first but had one of our best value meals on the island. We ate delicious jerk chicken and salad and loved it. On one side you have a view of the bay and on the other a really cool mangrove forest. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Authentic and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2010

We recently spent a week in the Marigot bay area of St.Llucia, where finding a customer friendly restaurant with good food can be challenging.
We really enjoyed our dinner at J. J's.
This is a local spot frequented mostly by St. Lucians and some visitors.
My shrimp creole with vegetable rice was very good and arrived in a timely fashion.
My husband enjoyed his red snapper and rice.
Our server was friendly, warm and engaging and we really enjoyed our dinner.
We would return here.
They have recently expanded their repetoire to include a hot island breakfast.
