this is a chilled out beach bar/restaurant near the airport, good food, reasonable prices and sunbeds for the beach if you want to watch the kite surfers and enjoy the breeze, we came her a few times during our holiday and enjoyed it each time.

We checked in and dropped our bags the recommended +two hours before our flight, but didn't yet return the rental so we made the short hop from the airport to this cafe. Obviously very popular with the locals--a good sign. Right on the beach, so...More

We stayed at Coconut Bay. We tried The Reef because it had high rating on google. It does not look like much at first glance, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit nervous going in. But inside was the friendliest...More

Thank you, Tourtis, for taking the time to visit and review us. So glad we turned out all right! :) Indeed, there is a lot more sweetness to St Lucia than tourist resorts alone.

Beautiful location, friendly staff, and the atmosphere was just as expected. Order curry which pretty good along with a very fresh salad. Side of fries was hot and crisp. Octopus was tasty but a little salty.

We weren't disappointed here, just kind of bored. It's a nice setting, and given how relatively few restaurants there are in the Vieux Fort to Laborie stretch, you should make it one of your stops, just don't go out of your way. And keep an...More

This place is very chill and fun to go to, especially at night or on a beach day. There is an outdoor sitting area in the sand, and is lit up with Christmas lights when the sun goes down, creating a very cool atmosphere. The...More

My wife and I went here for some lunch. We both had the burgers which were goog. The beers were cold and the reggae music was playing a reasonable volume. What more could you want.

The Reef Beach Cafe is open 7 days per week, from 8:00 am till 10:00 pm (Mondays until 6pm), and offers a simple but nicely varied menu of Creole and international (sea)food, a range of fast foods (including home made pizza), breakfast, fresh milkshakes, cappuccinos, cold beers and hot cocktails, at prices as low as we can keep them, making The Reef affordable to both locals and visitors. The Reef Kite + Surf is located right next to The Reef Beach Cafe, and there are tables inside as well as outside under the gum and sea grape trees on the beach.
