Where to eat out
Dining in style
After a long day spent exploring rainforests or sprawled out on the beach, you’ll want
to top it off with a five-star meal...
The Coal Pot, Vigie Marina
Ask anyone for their top restaurant in St
Lucia, and the majority will mention this
elegant, vibrant eatery in Castries. New
World cuisine married with a stone and
wood open air design and the water from
the marina just a few feet away create an
ambient dining experience at both lunch
The Lime, Rodney Bay
Like many restaurants in Rodney Bay, the
Lime’s food is reasonably priced and
varied. From fresh seafood to pork and
steaks, service is quick and often
accompanied by live music.
Rainforest Hideaway, Marigot Bay
Surrounded by lush greenery and with a
stunning view of the bay, the Rainforest
Hideaway is one of St Lucia’s most
intimate restaurants. The menu is a fusion
of Caribbean, Asian and Oriental and the
food can be washed down with a little
help from the Champagne bar.
Ti Bananne, Rodney Bay
If you’re after fine French Caribbean
dining at good rates, Rodney Bay’s
spacious Ti Bananne (small banana) is
ideal. With alfresco dining by the Coco
Palm swimming pool, it is best
appreciated at lunch.
The Great House Restaurant,
Perfect for large parties, the Great House
Restaurant combines international and
Caribbean cuisine to startlingly good
effect. If you’ve had a hard day swinging a
golf club at the near-by course, there’s no better place to recuperate.
