The presentation was superb but not ostentatious. The food was delicious; the best meal I had during a two week stay. The owner stopped by to have a conversation.

My wife & I, along with five friends visited Lil Chef, and the food was excellent. We will return next year when in St Lucia, but will not go on a windy evening, as at times, we almost got blown away with the wind off...the bay.More

Hi Ron, thanks for taking the time to post a review. We're delighted that you enjoyed your meal with us, and look forward to seeing you again next year. We do enjoy a constant breeze off the water, and it can certainly be quite windy...More

We stopped several times, since the food was so good and had great presentation. Placed on the waterfront, you can watch boats and waterbirds while enjoying great food.

Nice enough place on the waterfront. Staff pleasant and helpful. Food tasty enough but very small portions, even the main courses were tiny so at the prices they charge it is not very good value and we left feeling like we needed to go for...a curry.More

Made reservations, but really did not need to. We had an early dinner and since we had reservations, we were able to get a table at the waters edge. The service was very good and attentive. We had the Creole Jambalaya and the Jerk BBQ...chicken. Both dishes were very good. We asked for a green salad to start dinner and they said no worries. The salad was good. Overall, this was worth our time in finding it. We ended the night with a Passion fruit sorbet and a cheesecake. Both were a good way to finish off the dinner.More

Such a quaint little restaurant. It was such a beautiful setting, right on the water but with that indoor outdoor feel. The chef deserves kudos as the food was a work of art and was delicious.

Should have been a pleasant evening with friends, a few drinks and music supplied by a local guy .. he has a following! But $26ec for a Chairman’s rum and coke? Seriously? And then gents using the ladies wash room as the men’s wash room...was “off limits” so the ladies wash room was pretty disgusting ... sorry guys but you’re not the cleanest or tidiest when using a wash room!!! Nevertheless it would be good if staff checked the washroom occasionally ... for benefit of your customers!! Your standards have dropped ... would be good if your drinks prices did too !!!! Would not recommend ... I used to but my experience last night wasn’t encouraging at all.More

We visited for an evening meal. Excellent food and beautifully presented. Lots of attention to detail here. Great atmosphere as the place was full and they had a singer playing in the background. Would return and recommend.

Hi there, thanks so much for sharing. We're delighted that you enjoyed your Lil' Chef experience, but curious to know what we need to do to go from four to five bubbles?!?

We were a group of seven friends looking to enjoy a first rate meal while at Rodney Bay. We found Lil Chef and debated whether it was this or another restaurant. After reading some reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to get a table here. As...we were a little early we waited at the bar where the service was good. We were seated by the Maitre'd and soon our server got our orders. Splitting the bill was no issue here. The service was impeccable, at a good continental level. Everyone obviously took pride in what they were doing. The food was exquisitely prepared and the tastiest of our Caribbean trip. The jerk chicken blew you away and the chef had conjured steak and fries into a piece of art. There was a glitch with my wife's plate, which arrived a few minutes later than everyone else's. This was immediately apologized for genuinely by both our server and the maitre'd. They also removed it from the bill immediately. This is how its done! When excellent food comes together with immaculate but relaxed service, you know you're on to something!More
