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.

Fom the moment we arrived we were treated beautifully by the staff. The menu was diverse the food wonderfully presented and tasted as good as it looked! What was really surprising and really appreciated was the children's menu our 11 year daughter a very picky child was totally captivated which makes such huge difference to dining out which any parent will totally understand - thank you!

Another gem on the island well worth trying. One can garnish their instincts with a great meal in a very inviting atmosphere . Waiters were very polite, not too pushy yet within the orbit of your table.
Very nice wine collection perfectly matching anything coming out of the kitchen. My wife had Foie Gras and I had Seared Scallops. And finally the desert (rather lite) accompanied by a bottle of nice late harvest. The only disadvantage - it was already dark when we got there, could not really see anything around and the heavy rain banging on the roof (felt rather romantic).

We wanted somewhere special to go to on our last night and this certainly didn't disappoint. We arrived at 17.30 to watch the sun setting whilst drinking Watermelon martinis, made and recommended by a fabulous barman Cyril. We then sat and had a delicious 3 course meal which was of Michelin star standard. We also took our 2 children aged 11 & 15 who also loved the food and experience. They cater very well for older children, it is a very romantic venue but we were told that they cater for younger children also but not sure it's a place I would take very young children to unless they are really well behaved.

My wife and I enjoyed our 20th anniv at Cap and ate three meals the The Cliff...each one better than the next! I could go on about the food, but what stuck out to me the most was the attitudes of the wait staff. Want a different table, no problem. Want something off the menu, we'll get it for you. Never heard one sorry, we can't do that. What a special time...thanks Keegan and Maggie!!

Tuesday and Saturday the Cliff features a set menu of Creole style tapas. Don't let that headline fool you. In actuality, they present an amazing assortment of tasty dishes ( 9 in all ) that neither resemble tapas nor are they spicey. The 1st dish, set on a small plank, is a trio of Seafood Chowder (better than lobster bisque), Salt Fish & Avocado Salad set in a tiny artsy cup, and a yummy Vegetable Accras, Creole Salsa. ( Bit like finger tempura fried veggie ). All very nice although I personally find salt fish...well...salty :)

Next comes your "Frappe"

On a similar presentation you have West Indian Beef Pepper Pot w/herb dumplings (Amazing)
Then baked Island Tilapia (tender and moist) with a curried mangoe sauce and lastly a Crispy (tempura) Rock Crab w/cucucumber salad. Use your fingers baby!

Dessert is a ice cream cup Sweet Creole Memories paired with Admiral Rodney Rum.

The total for the amazing presentation in small perfect portions is $ 55.00 Add a bottle of Sancerre wine and the total for two with tip is $ 200.00
