Description: The Cliff at Cap Restaurant was famously hailed by The New York Times and is already one of the most highly sought after tables on the island. Located on the northwest coast in one of the Caribbean's most dramatic settings overlooking the surging Caribbean Sea. The kitchen at The Cliff at Cap is overseen by Welsh born Executive Chef Craig Jones, a St Lucian Chef of the Year recipient, who serves an inspired French West Indian contemporary menu. His nouveau French West Indian cuisine elegantly presents the bounty of St Lucia's fresh local farm produce and seafood readily sourced on this tropical island. The Cliff at Cap offers unobstructed views towards Martinique to the north and Pigeon Island to the West, and surrounded by the magnificent Caribbean sea, with sunsets to die for. The restaurant is open to non residents from breakfast to dinner with a dress code of smart casual.

We love this restaurant for lunch after enjoying the secluded beach below. The food is expensive, but well worth it. The view is cliffside, breezy and spectacular. The service is unprecedented and we have dined here three times now. Be sure to stop by this hidden treasure when in the Rodney Bay or the Cap Estates area. Nothing compares that we have found so far.

Although we were there mostly for the view and ambience, the food matched the beauty of both. We arrived there tentatively because we weren't even sure where we were going. we were basically exploring the north end of the island since we were staying in Marigot Bay. We came down the winding roads to this gorgeous resort, nestled on top of a cliff. the staff who were outside of the gates enthusiastically waved us in after our request to have lunch there.

The resort itself looks beautiful; there are villas and apartments in every building (from what we could determine) and private pools everywhere. we approached the restaurant and a smiling hostess seated us immediately. wow! the view is amazing. all we could see was cliffs, cerulian water and sailboats tacking across the water.

We hadn't met a rude wait staff anywhere on the island and this was no exception. He was smooth, knowledgeable and very friendly. We had a bottle of water brought to us immediately, and placed in an ice bucket. we ordered drinks and i was presented with a crisp and very cold sauvignon blanc and my husband his usual piton beer. we perused the menu and although it was a fairly warm day, the breeze had a layer of cool to it, so keith ordered the fish chowder; when i tell you that we spend a lot of time in new england, eating in both local and gourmet restaurants, we have never had a chowder like this one. it was the kind that when you take a spoonful, you kind of throw your head back with delight. i was jealous (although he shared a lot with me). i ordered the fish tacos which were so good, the fish was beautiful. keith ordered the jerk chicken wrap, delish, and we had a side of sw. potato fries which i couldn't stop eating with the local hot sauce that i mixed in with the ketchup.

we didn't want to leave so we had another drink. then we needed to walk around, i took pictures of this truly stunning property and it really made our day! i highly recommend a visit to this restaurant. the bill, yes it was high, but we didn't eat anything for the rest of the day as we were satiated and with the drinks, i felt the bill was fair.

Set on a cliff overlooking the water, it has an amazing view of Matinique and Pidgeon Island. We didn't stay there, but the resort seems beautiful. Very classy place. One of the priciest places we ate, with lunch costing $65US. Def paying for setting, but it is worth it.

This venue is a must if visiting the Rodney Bay area. The setting is stunning. We had an amazing dinner. Food was excellent. We are going back before we leave. This time. We will arrive at 6 pm to enjoy the sunset and then dine. I agree with other diners that it is very special and expensive but absolutely worth it!

Superb location with specatular ocean views, waves crashing below, lights of martinique in the distance. Food matched the location, was absolutely top class - the sea bass and lobster risotto as good a meal as I have had. The service was first rate, very friendly and attentive. I did spend a bit though, but for the location and quality I was happy enough with that. A couple of rum punches (have to try those, very tasty and with a kick) and a couple of bottles of wine capped off a great evening. If you are a foodie and going to St Lucia, this has to be top of your list.
