Reviewed 27 July 2014

Great food, wonderful atmosphere and pleasant service. Everything you could ask for in a restaurant. I can particularly recommend the Kingfish and the desserts were delicious.

“Nice waterside atmosphere...”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We had lunch here and the food was very good, especially the native soup. It was a little too quiet and the wait staff was not very effusive or friendly. They were efficient.

“Tasty and Laid Back”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This spot is almost impossible to find but well worth the effort. Once you get there, you are seated right next to a narrow branch of the bay that Castries sits on. The owner is also a locally renowned potter and the serving ware is all hand made (and beautifully painted). Her work is available to purchase. We had seafood (kingfish) entrees after lobster bisque to start. Everything was well prepared, hot and served with a smile.
