Had Sunday lunch at the restaurant as our last meal in St Lucia on the way to the airport. Portions are generous, food is delicious and service is friendly. The view from the restaurant is breathtaking (see photo). We have also tried their London restaurant, but this is far superior, fresh ingredients, better value and much better cocktails!

I came here with my wife for the bean to bar excursion through another resort. We made our own chocolate bar (labor intensive), we ate lunch here (average at best) and walked the property for about a half hour (beautiful property) but the pool was very small and its not within walking distance to the beach.
