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 arrived on a very wet evening, the table we were given was damp, one of the seats was soaked, we had to point this out to the staff - they did move us, but given the reputatin this restaurant has, it shouldn't have needed us to point this out. Food was OK, but nothing like we expected from a chef with the resume this one has. Servse was inattentive and indifferent. Grossly overpirced for what it is.

Matthew the restaurant mangaer is there to guide you through every meal.
Great wine list and outstanding chef. Each day's specials were creative and delicious.
The staff makes your experience personal.
Leave time for your dinner as you will really enjoy it.

if not for the wonderful food then for the sunset and the drinks. We stayed at an all inclusive and wanted a change of scene. We loved the food and the drinks were very tasty made with local fruits. The hotel also was very impressive.

Last evening we enjoyed a very special evening at The Cliff.. The atmosphere was amazing as we heard the sea crashing on the cliffs below and listened to a wonderful saxophonist. The food was well cooked and beautifully presented with a special French wine accompanying each course.

We visited after hearing much hype about the Cliff restaurant, but were sadly let down.
Less than good food at high prices is not compensated by the view. Some people must be easily impressed to rave about their cuisinne.
