“Don't have sushi here”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

On Wednesdays they have half priced sushi. If you like sushi, go to Ocean's Basket. Here it is tastes not good. Staff is bickering among themselves.
Restaurants are poor in St Lucia and this was the worst.

“Friendly Staff and Good Service”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We stopped here for lunch; I had fish and chips and my wife had the Peri-Peri Chicken. The fish and chips were excellent. It was the first time my wife had had peri-peri sauce as it is not common in Canada and she really enjoyed it. This is not a fine dining establishment, but it is an excellent place to stop for a very reasonably priced lunch that is very well prepared. Good value for money.

“Wednesday Half Price Sushi!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Had a lovely meal with excellent service. The sushi was the real draw for us as it was half price, and it really was well prepared. The cooked seafood's we had were also great, lovely hazelnut milkshake, coffee milkshake not so good. Not really sure why there are "cooked" items on the sushi menu? We tried the mussel balls and the prawns, they were good, although 3 fried prawns which were mostly batter for nearly R50 (usual price) seemed a bit excessive.

“Friendly and helpful staff but slow service”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Only just OK. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful in responding to orders but they needed to be as the food took so long. Nearly an hour by which time we all nearly past it. Dishes OK but nothing particularly special for a speciality fish restaurant. Whole evening spoilt by slowness of service.
