“A most Place to Eat whiles in St Lucia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

You will sit practically on the water and enjoy an excellent French-creole cuisine which is consistently good every time. One of my favourite restaurants on St. Lucia with a menu that features selections like Pumpkin soup, Curry chicken and freshly caught fish with mouth watering local herbs and spices my favourite sauce creole. You will definitely not feel like leaving this place, waterside dining...

“Disappointed...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

I read a lot of the reviews on this restaurant but I have to say my husband and I were disappointed. While the atmosphere is very nice and the staff very accommodating, we just felt the food was way overpriced and the quality was just not there. We don't mind paying a higher price for a good meal but didn't think the prices at the Coal Pot were justified.

“Nice setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

The setting at the Coal Pot is rather quite nice, tranquil and tucked away. The food was good, wouldn't say outstanding. The service can be a bit pushy for you to eat & drink more and the prices.... well they are Caribbean style.
I would say go, but don't eat a lot (unless you're ready for the bill). It's a nice enough place for lunch.
