“Lovely spot, good food and ambience”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We were taken in a group for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Interesting watching planes taking off/landing at the nearby airport. Excellent French/Creole food and very efficient service. Shame they didn't sell Michelle Elliott's ceramics as I fancied a souvenir.

“Very romantic setting”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Its hard to find in the dark but once you see it it is very charming and romantic. It is open on the bay side right on the water your table is just a few feet away. The food/service is exellent. Save room for Creme Brulee for dessert

“Seek it out!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Cole Pot is not a place you would find on your own but it is worth seeking it out! It is right on the inlet and boats went in and out during our dinner. It is also close to the airport so there is the occasional plane that takes off or lands.

Food was superb and presentation was beautiful. Strongly suggest any of the fish offerings- which were all fresh. Desserts were beautiful too.

Overall a really lovely meal on Christmas eve - a tad on the expensive side - but it was very good.
