The food was dynamite. The experience was awesome. At the last minute we decided to not do the all inclusive at our resort. We've always done it in the past with mixed results. This place was one of the gems we discovered along the way. I can't say enough about Laurels. The women herself was one of the most welcoming... More

Great food. Laurel is the owner and a wonderful, friendly and humble woman. The fresh creole bread is divine! Miss it and you miss out!

We have dinner there every year we're in St. Lucia. Laurel is a great cook and a fascinating lady. She always prepares breadfruit, plantains, and other local foods on the side to make it a real local meal. The real test is to see how many St. Lucians go there. Local people know good local food.

A small choice all served by the lovely Laurel. Try to go when she has lobster. Basic surroundings and you may even get involved in Karaoke.

We went for supper one night. The food was very tasty and had great local flavors. We had a very romantic meal in this local place. I would recommend this place to anyone.

When we walked into Laurels, we instantly felt like guests in someone's home. Since there were eight of us, we called in the morning to see if the restaurant could accommodate us. Sometimes it is not open, but it was opened the night we arrived. The food was delicious; just what we were looking for. Most selected from the three... More

When you walk into Laurel's, you're immediately struck by the intimacy of the space. The small, open dining room looks directly into the kitchen, where Laurel herself does the cooking. The menu is simple, with a heavy emphasis on local seafood. Everything is custom ordered and the aromatic smells from the kitchen leave you giddy with the knowledge that anything... More

I stopped here for lunch just by co-incidence on the way to a friend. The restaurant is not at a very popular and easy location. The place was spick and span, very clean and food was good. I never went back because it is difficult to get to, public transportation domes not pass by and you need to walk in... More

On our recent vacation to St. Lucia we had dinner at Laurel's Restaurant just outside of Castries. We had gone to dinner there twice in February of 2015 and were excited about having dinner there again and visiting with Laurel and her husband, John. The visit was wonderful - they are such nice people - and the food was excellent.... More

In the past we went to Laurel's quite a lot and had not been there for a while so decided to go. It is a nice local place in a local area serving up good food at great prices, from what we remembered. We went and had a great night out with everyone and good food. The staff were friendly... More
