We returned after a two year gap to the Coal Pot for lunch. The location is superb on an inlet off Castries harbour. The water almost laps at your feet. You can watch the ferries and the catamarans silently gliding in and out as they go about their business. The service was good, attentive but not intrusive. The food, we... More

this was our most expensive meal on the Island. Worth the trip for the view, the food. Service was not constant. Some were smiling and attentive, other seemed not to be in a good mood. We recommand.

Such a great place to visit while on the northern end of the island. We stayed at the sandals grand and it was a 10-15 minute drive. The atmosphere is excellent and the food is down right amazing. I would definitely go back

We arrived after our sunset cruise. This restaurant came very highly recommended by friends. I think we set our expectations too high given the recommendation. We checked in at our reservation time and were quickly seated at a table facing the bay. The atmosphere was great. Music was nice as was the view. We ordered our meals from the daily... More

Lovely setting (Spray your legs with bug spray before you go, though!), wonderful food - slow service (but, if you are looking for a leisurely dining experience, then its fine!).

We took our family of five here to prepare a fish we had caught and had a wonderful evening following our server Fiona's suggestions. Highly recommend.

The experience starts at the front door amidst amazing greenery and a totally island zen vibe which follows you inside. Every detail was beautiful from the coi pond with floating flowers to the zen posters to the handpainted plates to the chandeliers. And the food was equally incredible. Fresh seafood, amazing desserts, the works. I would fly to Saint Lucia... More

This place is fantastic... the coal pot was recommended by the receptionist at the place I was staying.. so reservations were made. I was so pleased by everything the restaurant had to offer. Beautiful views of the water, generous staff, and a wonderful meal. My boyfriend had the callaloo soup as an appetizer and the duck breast with a black... More

My family and I went to this restaurant, not expecting much when we where driving up, however once you get inside it is a truly amazing place. The restaurant is literally right on the water, and is an open environment. The staff was so friendly, talking and really making everyone feel welcome. The food was absolutely amazing, and had a...
