Four of us enjoyed an early dinner on the deck, a lovely spot to share a good meal. Lamb roti was delicious -- flavorful and tender. My partner had the salad he'd been craving. Lime squash to drink. Chocolate cake for dessert (a special). Loved...our interactions with Liz, who was super busy but took the time to be warm and welcoming. If you are anchored out at Pigeon Island before returning your Moorings charter, this will be the Saint Lucia memory that stays with you.More

Amazing, wonderful, excellent in general :) A must stop if anywhere near Rodney Bay / Pigeon Island. The prices are very reasonable, the food is fantastic and the service is quick and friendly. We stopped by after a hike thru the Fort which was a...lot of fun. Go, you'll thank me if we ever meet.More

This place is easily missed, situated just off the beach on Pigeon island. Really enjoyed stopping here though. Girls had started to tire of the hotel food, so a quick lunch stop here after we’d scaled the pigeon Island peaks was just the ticket. Sandwiches...and drinks and some crisps probably doesn’t sound much, but it was nice, good value and a really lovely location - Overlooking the bay.More

This was the worst meal we ever had ! Anywhere in the world . I can’t believe people say the. Food here is good !! The rice was way over cooked and has flavor at all . The fish again over cooked and tasteless ....I’m absolutely gob smacked at how bad it was . Then the service was terribly slow . Had to leave the table to go to the bar to order drinks. I DO NO recommend this place to anyone.More

We did the historic park tour on a Sunday and planned to eat on the island. So glad we chose Jambe de Bois--our taxi driver recommended it, and it didn't disappoint! Small, lovely tables facing the ocean, nice breezes blowing through, and quick service, despite...the fact they were packed with several large groups (national holiday). Fish fingers were excellent and plentiful, and my partner's fish roti was the best he's had anywhere! Staff was friendly and food was fresh--a definite must-do!More

We recently visited Gros Islet in St. Lucia. After visiting Fort Rodney, we went for a swim at the beach at the fort park. We were told that there was a great little restaurant just at the end of the beach. We couldn't see it...but a short walk brought us to this very rustic looking building on the water. We sat at a table made from a wagon wheel, and the decor was mostly driftwood. Quaint, but far from lavish. We ordered a beer and the Chicken roti, To our delight, the roti was absolutely delicious. A perfect meal to end a great day. Do yourself a favour if you happen to visit Fort Rodney, find this little gem on the beach.More

Had a gorgeous lunch in this wonderful location right next to the sea and beach, stunning. Exceptional food and a must visit for those in the area. We had the curried Swordfish and grilled Dorado - beautiful and of course nicely washed down with a...couple of Pitons! ☺️🍺More

Great little restaurant overlooking the sea on pigeon island. The 2 for 4 cocktails were great and we loved the fried fish pitta. The views of the sea are amazing, we loved it so much we came back twice during our stay.

Simply delicious. This little eatery is on pigeon island (so you have to pay to get into the national park area) just along the beach. Things started well with their incredible mudslide shake - rum, chocolate ice cream and banana. For mains, we had the...curried fish and the fish of the day, both of which were divine. The staff were friendly and we had a lovely coastal view, but the food really made it. Definitely worth eating there.More

We ate lunch here on our visit to Pigeon Island and the food and service were great. We tried both the roti and the fried fish sandwich and both were authentic Caribbean food. We ended up being there during a rain event and luckily we...were seated under the thatched roof outside so didn’t have to move. Recommend to any visitors to the park.More

Not sure, but probably given the preponderance of gluten free customers these days, they might be wise to have some on the menu. For nuts, I do not recall any signs stating nut free or not nut free.

Not if the park is closed or about to close. They let us in for free. Don't know about earlier in the day.

I believe they are open til 10 daily except Monday, they close at 5. You can't go there until after 5 to eat unless you are visiting the park which is $8 US pp entrance fee.
