“Always Great!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The Coal Pot is a never-miss restaurant. The food is always excellent and reasonably priced. It's the ultimate power lunch spot, the ultimate, "impress your client" spot. We've taken many a client there and every single one walked away loving it. It's also a great place for lunch with your spouse.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The restaurant is almost like being on a barge afloat the river, it's very quirky and comfortable, with great food and the service was exceptional. I would definitely recommend a trip out and will be returning!

“Very good meal & service”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Dinner was very nice and service was good. All the staff was attentive, friendly and professional. We ordered crab back as appetizer and also the calamari creole. For main course we had fish; the dolphin w ginger sauce and red snapper grilled w/o sauce. For dessert we decided on crème brulee and ganache cake & espresso. All the food was very good. It was tasty, well cooked and presented. Plates could have been hot. The total bill was USD170 including tip & a bottle of rose wine. The time frame was hour and a half for the entire meal, which is reasonable. We saw four more tables when we arrived few minutes after 8:00PM. It offers a romantique atmosphere located just by the water. Lighting could be better. It's nice to see what you're eating
