“If you like surly staff this is the place for you!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Tried to eat here twice. First time waited over half an hour for drinks order then were told they were too busy to take our lunch order. That would have been ok if there were over half the tables occupied but it was empty! Stupidly tried a second time and although we were fed the staff were slow to say the least. Food was not bad!

Been leaving you two "surly staffers" for last. Both of you came in with bags of attitude and gave My staff absolute grief the minute you walked on the premises. slavery is OVER , learn to be relaxed and treat the black folks nice , try smiling, try not to be superior. THEN AND ONLY THEN YOU MIGHT GET SOME RESPECT BACK !!! and some better service, get it ? CRASS , C.annot R.espect A.ny S.imple S.olution.

“Underachieving”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

This restaurant has a perfect location which it fails to exploit. We went a day early to identify our perfect table, booked it via the manager, arrived on time but found it had been given to someone else. The food was at best average and cooked and presented with no flair. This is all rather sad as its got so much going for it. There are local alternatives which you should try first.

“WOW!”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

We were taking a sail boat trip today and needed to meet the boat at 8:30 AM. We arrived at Doolittle's for breakfast at 7:30 but found out they did not open until 8:00. We waited, saw the staff arrive "around" 8AM and and asked to order breakfast. We were told there was no way we could be served and out of there by 8:30. We ordered 4 coffees and a basket of toast...it FINALLY arrived at 8:20 and we received a bill for $23 US!!!!!! Never again!!

The Staff ARRIVE at 8-00 am then have to prep up. we inform guests that we open @ 8-30 am and are open for breakfast until Eleven am. coffee is $7-00 ec.= $2.62 U.S. a portion of toast and jam is $7-00 ec = $2.62 U.S. . not exactly exhorbitant considering it includes VAT And service charge. your toast FINALLY arrived at 10 minutes before we open !! I should go see a doctor as I feel sure that you are sickening for something LOL !

“Doolittles, where the staff do little.”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

It's probably the best location in Marigot Bay, but the painfully slow service makes it unbearable for the amount they charge. We breakfasted and lunched there today, as we're in the hotel. At breakfast, we order oatmeal with honey, raisins and brown sugar and wholemeal toast. They brought us a nice bowl of naked oatmeal, but there was no mention of where the rest of the meal was. We ate up and waited for the toast.
We drank all our coffee (which was really tasty and flavoursome).
Having a nice, long and unhurried breakfast is fine, but 50 mins to make a slice of toast???
And the waitress came over and asked us if we "where finished?"
"No, we're waiting for our wholemeal toast. Is it on the way?"
With a face like thunder, "We have no wholemeal. We only have white!"
If she'd said this when we had ordered, or at any point thereafter, it would have been fine, but that's just bad, lazy service. There were two waitresses and 4 couples, it's not as though were rushed. We felt that we were a burden to them and that's not how it should be.

We foolishly ate lunch there,as it's our hotel's restaurant, and we experienced the same farce with a green salad. 45 mins after the mains arrived we had to re-order a salad......

The food is not bad, but, for the price charged and service received it's dreadful.

Will try to avoid eating here again, but we're on a B&B deal :(

There obviously was a misunderstanding, either you never heard them or they never heard you. My humble apologies.

“Very Good”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

Doolittle's was the only restaurant in the area that offered a Thanksgiving Day meal, we vacationed in St Lucia 11/25-11/29/2013, so we ate dinner there. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was, we were thinking Caribbean more popular with fish etc, so were surprised at how good the dinner was. The waitress and staff we had were all very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. I don't like hot spicy food, but they were able to guide me with making sure I didn't get anything spicy. We enjoyed the food, staff and atmosphere very much.
