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.

“Stunning location & great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

The best meal we had in St Lucia. Dramatic location high over the sea with beautiful views. Helpful keen to please staff. Their several course tasting menu was about £60 ($90 US) per person & was delicious. Worth the prices asked because food was superb & setting was magical. Highly recommended. Loved it. Hope that's helpful.

“Fantastic location over the waves crashing onto the shore below”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Elegant dining with a sophisticated menu and attentive service. Well worth a visit for a special occasion. The location perched on a cliff was spectacular. Good for a romantic couples evening or an impressive first date.

“Great restaurant with great views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

While staying at Sandals, we wanted to get off the resort and checkout the local fare as well as take a break from mediocre food. We found The Cliff at Cap Maison and we wish we would have found it earlier in our trip! The restaurant sites on top of a cliff with amazing views of the water, especially at sunset. The food was absolutely amazing! It was one of the few places on the island that we found finer wines as well as food and service that would give any Four-star restaurant in North America a run for their money. Highly recommend you going there at least once. You will likely want to come back before your trip ends!

“Fantastic Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

The Cliff is located in the North, a few minutes away from our hotel. I rated this so high because I was mesmarised by the atmosphere. there was a two person band with a female singer and a man on a guitar- she has an amazing voice. Her voice and the location made the visit worth it. the service was average, the food was good but not great. Prices were on par with the nicer places we've been to on the island.

“Go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

This place is amazing. Gorgeous atmosphere - sophisticated yet laid back. Beautiful view. You can hear the waves crashing below as you look out at the moon. Would be super romantic, although we took our young kids and they were fine (family vacation, after all - there were plenty of well behaved kids there) and loved it. I half expected James Bond to walk in, because it is so lush and, well, a place James Bond would hang out. Fantastic food, service and drinks. The music was amazing too. A must visit.
