This place could really capitalize on its location since there are few locations on the beach in Rodney Bay. The food missed the mark for us, though. I had the curry shrimp, and while the shrimp tasted fresh, I believe that I may have gotten food poisoning here. Shortly after leaving the restaurant, I almost vomited several times for no apparent reason (I'm too old to be pregnant). My husband had the fish creole and the base tasted excessively of tomato and the fish was very fishy tasting, not fresh at all. My husband also experienced Montezuma's revenge after eating here. We're wondering if both our dinners shared the same secret ingredient given that we both suffered the same effects from totally different meals. Would not return here again except for maybe drinks.

The food and service is very good and it's located right on the beach too. It's why you go to the Caribbean for a location like this.

People tell us dinner is good too, but you are so spoiled for choice in the area it's easy to miss this place, but we aim to try it out one day.

Really romantic spot for a lovely dinner. The food was good and it is great to be able to watch the sun go down on the beach. Service was friendly and attentive, I would definitely recommend!

Every time I come to St. Lucia on business, I try to make it to this place - not so much for the food, but for the location right on Reduit Beach. There are really no other options for restaurants right on this particular beach, which is wide and pretty, particularly for a public beach. Drinks, sandwiches and fish tacos are decent. Anything that sounds a little more creative is hit or miss.

Wicked food, helpful staff and the Lobster Thermidor and fish platters are amazing! Something for everybody...and when your trying to please 4 teenagers that, believe me is no mean feat! Cocktails for mummy... Yay! Beer and rum punch for daddy...yay!

The location on Reduit Beach was brilliant... literally on the beach.....

Would have dinner at Spinnakers tomorrow given half a chance :-)
