Herewith a list of places to Eat and Enjoy while in St Lucia. We will be adding to the list as new and exciting restaurants open.
Ski Boat Club
Idealy situated with impressive views of the St Lucia Estuary and all of it's wildlife. Enjoy Hippos playing while enjoy some tasty treats.
Enjoy some delicious home cooked traditional Italian dishes. Keep an eye out for those specials.
Reef & Dune
Tradition styled thatch restaurant with ample seating. Reef & Dune offers a wide variety of Meat dishes, Fresh Fish and Pizza. This restaurant is ideally suited for families.
The food is really good, and reasonably priced. Sit outside and watch nature come to you! This last visit we saw sharks in the estuary, and a croc try and catch a shark, all while eating our meal! Excellent. Bird life around there is amazing so all in all, this is the place to go.
We ate here in Oct. 2016. This is a friendly Italian joint with a good menu, especially pastas. Food was good. The owner is Italian and came around to all the guests. We tried to go back again the next evening but it was closed on Sundays.
During our stay in St Lucia we had 3 times dinner here. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the terrace has big wooden tables with candlelight and looks very nice. It is Always quite busy, but there was Always a table available. The menu is quite extensive with steaks, burger and pizza's and there is also a daily changing menu.
Ocean Zizzler Restaurant
Some traditional dishes with fresh fish and meat dishes. Very popular with Tour busses.
John Dory's Restaurant
Franchise style restaurant, offering fish and meat dishes with some splendid sushi dishes.
Traditional and as local as they come. Enjoy fresh fish direct from the Ocean.
Visited here with my tour group and booked in advance which is advisable as it was very busy Food was good and the portion sizes on some of the meals was huge! Cocktails also good with great service They split up the bills into pairs as we were such a large group to make it easier for paying individually.
We had dinner at John Dory's on our last evening. Our waiter was awesome and the food was delicious. Don't walk there at night though. Hippo's have been known to walk around in town once it gets dark.
We spent three days in St Lucia and realized from the outset that there were mostly tourist oriented and chain restaurants in the town. As do many travelers we like to find authentic local restaurants when travelling and this is a challenge in St Lucia. We realized right way that the Fisherman's Restaurant and Pub was as local as they come.
For some traditional Greek food then venture over to Baracca Restaurant. Nice open air restaurant with a good vibe.
Thyme Square Coffee Shop
The perfect place to sit and relax, ideal breakfast and lunch treats. Check out the pancakes.
We had lunch here twice. Both times we had a good lunch. A big terrace and quite spacious. I had an excellent ice coffee, one of my favourite drinks and it was very, very good. As lunch we had one day the steak sandwich and as well pizza and a prawn curry. All food we had was very tasty.
Awesome little coffee shop in St Lucia. Cappuccino's great, brownies & chocolate cake delicious! Very friendly, cosy atmosphere. Would definitely visit again!
