When you go to this Laborie you must go to Mana Rose. This is a family run business the main man is Aidan. He is so helpful and so welcoming to the bar and village the locals that come there too are amazing. The food...is out of this world. All the fish is fresh from the fisher man from the village and Aidan will do anything for you. He even took me up to his farm up in the hills to see where he gets all his local produce from which is all organic. He is also doing delivery of food and also delivery of breakfast. Aidan runs the bar and restaurant with his two sisters. Do not miss going there. I will be back next time I am in St LuciaMore

We were staying at the wonderful Balenbouche Estate about 10 minutes away and they recommended Mama Rose on our first night; we returned a few more times during our wonderful 2 week stay. Food is really good, drinks generous and Adon is wonderful. Was like...an old friend by our 3rd or 4th visit! Dinner, Drinks, or just snacks (fish cakes were delish!) We also met some wonderful 'locals' and other visitors - really enjoyed the food and atmosphere - would light recommend.More

We were recommended to come here as one of the best local restaurants where we were staying, and can see why. The host is really friendly, was completely unfazed by one of us being a vegetarian, suggested the best and most comfortable table to sit...at, and the food came really quickly. Good Creole cooking - rice, sweet potatoes, blackeye peas and a salad for each of us, with tuna in coconut for Jenny as well and her salad also had salt fish and figs (green bananas). Good value - with a couple of beers apiece it still only came to EC$30-odd. Strongly recommended if you’re after local cuisine in a local place.More

Four of us came to Laborie for an evening concert at Mama Rose. We ordered the "Fish of the Day" for us all and were all delighted with the shaved garlic atop of the Blue Marlin, the potato salad and shredded carrot side. Hungry for...more later that evening, we ordered the potato wedges, wings and fries. The menu catered to everything we desired including our diet restriction of a dairy allergy. The owner made sure we were all well taken care of, and the restaurant made such a good impression on us that we returned two days later for another meal. I highly recommend stopping in Laborie just to eat and drink here!More

We had a delightful lunch at this restaurant. Mama Rose came highly recommended locally and it lived up to its excellent reviews. Our waiter was incredibly attentive and accomodating. There were six of us, and the kitchen is fairly small so we waited a little,...but we were happy and comfortable chatting until the food arrived! We had delicious accra (fishcakes), wonderful tuna, and really great burgers. The place takes card and is very well priced, our food cost around £10 each including 3 Piton beers each, an astoundingly good price!More

Six of us stopped for lunch. Had fish cakes, fried plantain and fish fingers to start. Amazing. Catch of the day was tuna. Delicious. Others had the burgers and the chicken salad which all enjoyed. Really friendly service and great value. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend....Thanks so much!More

While the previous reviews where great, we did not share this experience. The waitress was not to interested in taking care of us, and spoke the least as possible. The food was just OK, not bad. The environment was extremely loud with music outside, had...to move inside where it was dark and warm. Just not a great experience.More

We LOVED this place! Adon is the man!!! My wife and I started our honeymoon in Laborie and through other many recommendations we went to Mama Rose for our first real meal. Not only did we feel the true Creole culture, the food was exceptional....We got to know a lot of friendly locals and felt safe in this town. Adon and crowd really made Laborie and St. Lucia feel like our second home. Get the mahi mahi when given the chance. The tuna was delightful; we got (as we are a fan of) rice/beans on the side...no regrets.More

We had a lovely evening here. The service was very friendly and it was interesting to know about the Mama Rose who started up this restaurant. The food tasted just right balance of sweetness and saltiness. The location was also great. Highly recommend.
