Lovely outdoor dining. Great staff. Good food for the most part. Much better value across the water at Valelse.

A great location, great food and friendly staff. We ate here several times during our stay on the island and could not be happier. It is just a short taxi ride from the cruise port-so easy to get to-and yet the setting is quiet and...very laid back for dinner. The food is very good...all you have to say is Barracuda...a complete win. Sad that we have left the island...but can't wait to return and will make the Coal Pot a part of that journey.More

Service is very good. Pumpkin soup and stiffed crab shell were delicious. Chocolate cake fantastic. Expensive.

I went with my girlfriend, and we were really happy with our night. Upon arrival, nice smiles, warm welcome, and romantic table offer right away. The server was great and even spoke a little bit of french. The food was good, and they have some...nice wine. I recommend this place.More

Special evening dining with friends. Fine dining with beautiful ambience. Loved the lanterns! Food was delicious. I had a salad and the large shrimp platter. My friends who go here annually to celebrate their wedding anniversary had the tenderloin platter and escargot.

We visited the Coal Pot after not visiting for a few years, and it was still the top notch place that we remember from 25 consecutive anniversary celebrations. The food and service are still gist rate, a delightful meal

I have to say I had so much hope for the Coal Pot having read reviews on TA but I have to agree with other reviewers, food was average, prices on the expensive side for the quality you got and service was awful, we booked...at 6pm when it opens, only to be told the chef wasn’t ready! It was until 35 minutes later we got to actually orderMore

Our visit here was a strange experience for a number of reasons. We have never had so many waiters and waitresses attending to us at once. And not that that’s a bad thing.... if the service was good. The service was slow. The food was...average, but overpriced for what you get. Their menu was one large chalk board for the entire table. They didn’t have a good way to display it so it was hard for some of us to see and the waitress needed to hold it the entire timeMore
