Excellent food and service! Beautiful view over looking the water! The plates on the tables are all hand painted by the owner! If you want to treat yourself to an awesome meal this is the place to go!

The Coal Pot restaurant sits on the water's edge just a short drive from downtown Castries. You can see schools of fish swimming in the shallow water from your seat. The restaurant is comfortably furnished with exotic country furniture and light fixtures adding to the ambience. You have many choices of truly fresh and delicious authentic Caribbean food.

We were just getting off a day-long boat trip when we looked across the dock and realized the restaurant we'd been wanting to try all week was right there. We had a long-standing reservation there too, but we were fairly grubby from being on the boat all day and were worried about our attire. We called and asked permission to... More

Candles, fairy lights and a peaceful setting next to the marina! Me and two friends visited for an evening meal, the food is beautiful! I chose the lobster which was just to die for! My friends both went for locally caught fish which you can have with many choices of different sauces. If I was to return to st Lucia... More

My friend and I just got back from St. Lucia and had an incredible trip. Unfortunately, after an amazing day on a boat charter, we had a really disappointing meal at the Coal Pot. When we arrived at the restaurant, it was just shortly after dusk and we were the only people at the restaurant. The server, while not overly... More

Wonderful location, exquisite food (compliments to the chef!), cooked to perfection overlooking a beautiful bay with stunning surroundings. Peaceful, tasteful and service that was second to none. HIGHLY recommend! One word of advice for The Coal Pot is that they would benefit greatly from some ceiling fans. It is hot in St. Lucia and if you aren't acclimated, it can... More

We took a trip out to this restaurant as a family. There were 10 of us and every single one of us loved our food. The setting is also beautiful and the service is outstanding this is well worth a visit if you are in Castries we will definitely go back when we are in the area again
