“Relax Be Happy”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The Coal Port was a very relaxing experience, the food was good. the staff
were very attentive but not pushy. As good as you can get in St Lucia.
If you want to sit by yhe water, and I do mean right by the water, eating
excelent food this is the place.

“Loved the lobster”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

My lobster was amazing but my boyfriend's filet was not the greatest. I would stick with seafood if we ever went back.

“Best restaurant we've ever been to.”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This was the best restaurant, by a long way actually, that I have ever been to. It is absolutely breathtaking, the food is delicious, the staff are friendly and the location is incredible. A must if visiting St Lucia.

“consistency is the name for the coal pot”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

sorry but this is the only place I want to have smoked salmon and chocolate cake. Neither taste like anything you have had before. I recommend Champagne with the smoked salmon. The dark chocolate cake is more of a pudding consistency- and well- delicious. I think they are famous for this cake! My anniversary August 21st each year- you will find me there

“Wonderful location...pretty good food.”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you like fresh seafood, this is certainly the place to go. It is a little off the beaten track but is well known by the locals. There is a long chalk board menu, which is predominantly seafood based but has steaks and other meats, including a children's menu. The beauty of this place is nice, friendly service but a wonderful location, right by the sea, gently lapping up to the front of the restaurant. A good night out.
