Highly recommended by friends we decided to give it a try. Food was excellent with large portions but pricey. We had 🐟Dover sole, Red Snapper, 🐡beef Carpaccio 🐂 and a huge 🍃garden salad. Location was perfect on covered outdoor patio overlooking the Caribbean with passing 🚢 cruise ships and planes ✈️ landing and taking off from the nearby airport

Stayed at the Cliff Feb 2016 and went to this restaurant after arriving in the late afternoon. The food is good but pricey.

Le Cafe is a top notch place to dine. Great food and the best view in Cupecoy. Try the burger for lunch, you will not be disapointed. J&H W Bowmanville, Ont., Canada.

We had 3 plates, my daughter had quinoa salad, my wife had tataki rolls and I had coconut shrimp, the latter 2 being daily specials. All were excellent and reasonably priced. Its too bad this place is not better known, but maybe just as well to the local residents and renters.

This Cafe is open from November until May. It is not obvious from the road, you have to buzz the gate of The Cliff condos to get in. The outdoor patio is lovely and the menu is on a series of chalk boards and changes daily. Everything we had was good and the portion sizes were quiet generous.

I finally had a chance to go to the resto at the Cliff. I had heard about it from clients and friends alike for around a year. When I finally went I had an outstanding lunch. A handful of tables makes it a quiet spot. Lovely views. The goat cheese beignet was delicious but I have to admit I keep... More

Le Cafe has become one of our favorite restaurants. We travel extensively and love to find little hidden gems like this. We had dinner at Le Cafe several times and each time was just amazing. The service was the best (Thanks to Romona and Sophie) and the chef is just beyond creative and fabulous. Love this place!!!
