We dined at Laurel's on a Tuesday evening. Perhaps because people were waiting for karaoke night (Wednesday?), there was only one couple dining there besides the four of us. Lucky for us! as we did not have to share Laurel and her interesting stories with anyone else! The open dining area was very rustic and there were colored lights strung round about. My husband had lamb and he said it was tender and delicious! With great apprehension, I ordered the salt fish as I do not like "fishy fish" and I must admit, the name put me off. What a surprise! The fish tasted similar to tilapia and was very mild. It was smothered in a delicious sauce and some "bits" of vegetables, one of which had a name that sounded like "crystal"? Had I not been full, I would have eaten all the remaining breadfruit which was very good. We washed it all down with Piton beer which is only 5% alcohol so it was light and refreshing.

We always visit Laurels when we stay at Windjammer Landing. The food this year again was fantastic - the menu is quite small but all the dishes are freshly prepared with local fresh ingredients and truly delicious. Wednesday night is karaoke night and most definitely worth a visit - the locals can truly sing! If you want to eat Caribbean food in a friendly informal environment you must try Laurels.

Laurel is an awesome personality and delivers a great local cuisine. Be sure to ask what is cooking for the day as the pot she has on is what the locals will be stopping by and eating. I love the Wednesday night Karaoke where you can hear island singer and Diva Nicole David inspire others to give it their all. I will definately be hanging out at Laurel's when I return to St Lucia.

Felt like we were a guest in her home and she was cooking for us. The lobster and shrimp were delicious!
