Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Lamb Roti is impossible to beat, perhaps the best on the island. Great location with a view and surprisingly well priced.

I will go back for the best calamari I've ever had. The service is poor yet the drinks were soooo good. I love the nice quiet location.

Nicely perched Creole style building above the bay, cooler inside. Ordered quickly then waited some - then some more - then more again 🙁! Eventually the Caesar salad 🥗 turned up - or some of it - what?? Thin plate of lettuce, chopped fried bread...masquerading as croutons and a sprinkle of Parmesan - no egg yolks, garlic or anchovies - and some dressing to squirt on - pah! As for the Callalo soup - greasy, tasteless, with a bit of green stuff floating about - che? Soda bread was ok 👌!More

The food was great. Best calamari I ever had in St. Lucia. However there was a staff who thought it would be a good idea to sweep half of the establishment while persons were eating. Who does that. She also started clearing our table before...we even got served. She saw a take away plate and assumed we were done. It was near closing time so maybe she was in a hurry to leave. But that was just in poor taste. I'll definitely go back for the food. But this time I'll probably take it to go. It is a nice quiet restaurant. They have great cocktails.More

As someone else said this is a gem! Perfect location having walked up and down the hill - followed by a swim. The restaurant is pretty rustic and it serves good quality local food. The cocktails are small but they are 2 for 1 all...day and go down a treat. If you are lucky they will have banana crumble with ice cream as a special.More

We stopped in for a few drinks and a snack after hiking to the fort and peak at Pigeon Island. It’s a beautiful little spot on the water. Delicious drinks and freshly made hummus! Thank you!

Setting amazing. Walked around the fabulous Pigeon Island and decided to have a lite bite before heading to the beach. We should have looked around at everyone else who was there before ordering, our expressions where the same as theirs after waiting over an hour...for a few simple snacks. Hummus & pitta bread, cheese dip & corn chips and calamari, only rated the calamari. People were leaving after ordering food, food was appearing at different times. So disappointing.More

This place has to be my favourite restaurant i in St Lucia. The location is fantastic offering amazing views. I went for lunch and the prices are cheaper than most restaurants but the food quality is the best! The place has bags of atmosphere and...the servers super friendly and helpful! Highly recommend the fish cakes and banana crumble! The rustic charm make this my top venue in St Lucia!More

Not sure, but probably given the preponderance of gluten free customers these days, they might be wise to have some on the menu. For nuts, I do not recall any signs stating nut free or not nut free.

Not if the park is closed or about to close. They let us in for free. Don't know about earlier in the day.

I believe they are open til 10 daily except Monday, they close at 5. You can't go there until after 5 to eat unless you are visiting the park which is $8 US pp entrance fee.
