Description: Mango Tree Restaurant, like the resort itself is tropically elegant. The al fresco dining pavilion looks out over a small river stone pool and takes in the magnificent Petit Piton and views of the Caribbean Sea. Stonefield Estate Resort features 3 exciting menus,rotated each day.Our chef and his culinary team use all fresh local market ingredients to make the freshest, most delicious St Lucian flare. All herbs and vegetables grown on property are organic and the former plantation still yields the seasonal citrus, mango and breadfruit which are incorporated into the daily menus. The Mango Tree Restaurant features a special vegan menu, as well as a children’s menu. And to stir it up true Caribbean style, The Mango Tree presents a rotating dinner theme menu featuring the popular Barbecue Thursdays, a charming Creole evening with a live local shak shak band and the best baby back ribs and jerk bake on the west coast. The Saturday Market Affair serves up the best of what has been freshly procured at the nearby Soufriere market with live entertainment from local musicians. Whether you dine under a full moon with Petit Piton cast in shadow, under the starriest of nights, or witness passing ships alight, The Mango Tree Restaurants brings diners the perfect marriage of location and gourmet Creole. The Mango Tree is open for breakfast from 7.30 am until 11:00 am and is open for lunch and dinner until 10:00 pm. Plantation House, the large signature villa on property features a full kitchen and the option for an in house chef for your stay.

We had our first experience of their Thursday night Plantation BBQ and it was very nice indeed.

At EC$65 per person we thought it was a reasonable price since other hotels in the area charge up to US$75 for their barbeque. The food was just fine. The spicy chicken wings were the most soft and succulent we’ve ever had! They were basically falling of the bone!

There was a fair number and variety of dishes on the buffet with meat being barbequed at the end which included pork chops, seafood, sausages and chicken.

The restaurant is generally pricey so it’s better value by going on their BBQ night, especially if you plan on having several courses.

Even though there was no table service for the food, the drinks delivery was still slow, but was always delivered with a smile.

The entertainment could have been abit better. Seemed like the DJ just put on a 'Burning Flames' CD and let that run for more than an hour. It would have been nice to hear a mix of different styles of Caribbean music.

Overall, we enjoyed the atmosphere and had a good dining experience. We’ll definitely go back again for BBQ night.

This restaurant has Continental and St.Lucian cuisine at reasonable prices. The view of the Piton is fantastic.

Superb view of one of the pitons. The staff are charming - excellent service. We enjoyed all our meals there, more especially breakfast with the platter of fresh fruit to start with.

Wonderful view of the Petit Piton so go for the venue and for the pretty drinks, tasty and beautifully decorated and if you get Mary to serve you she is shy but charming once you warm her up with a nice greeting. The staff are not skilled at giving you a warm welcome when you arrive, so be warned. They scowl when you first appear as if you are interrupting their personal time and local Creole conversations which seem to be based on their smart phone messages. Serving customers is secondary, so don't expect any sort of professionalism here.
However, the food is reasonably prices and more "local" but lacks any kind of sophistication but tasty in an unpretentious way The lobster is not fresh and is reheated from frozen so it’s a bit rubbery, the roti is too mild lacking sufficient curry but the local fresh fish was excellent.

We went here based on reviews by others and also, as vegetarians, because they have a vegetarian menu. The setting is beautiful, on a ridge overlooking the ocean and Piton. The dining area is on a deck overlooking the water- sweet setting. Drinks were more reasonably priced than some places around. The food, though and the final price at the end of the meal left me hungry and feeling ripped off.

My husband got a salad of tomatoes and red onions and pesto pasta. The salad was literally some sliced unripe tomatoes and red onions with no lettuce. The pasta was so overcooked and mushy and the pesto was not fresh; probably from a jar. I ordered pumpkin soup and asked about creole soya stew. Our waitress was impatient with the description and made it sound good so i ordered it. The waitress was in a hurry because she was the only server for all the tables. My pumpkin soup was ok but tasted like it was from a can of condensed pumpkin soup. Maybe it was floury. The soya stew was inedible and came with breadfruit that was starchy mushy, carrots that were ok and a piece of sad looking broccoli. The stew was rubbery and brown and tasted awful. I couldn't eat it. I was told later that soya is made on the island and is supposed to be soft but can come out rubbery when not made well. Anyway, I would recommend staying away from this dish! For one drink each, an appetizer and dinner, our bill was $96! And i left hungry and nauseas from my meal. The waitress took about half an hour to bring our check. She inquired about my dish and I told her I couldn't eat it. There was no reduction on the check. We won't be back again! Maybe their meat dishes are better. A place that kills pasta though has me worried.

The music was live and the band was fun.
