Dine among the mountains at fantastic St. Lucia restaurants that offer great views to go with great food. Consider starting out with some of these favoured dining restaurants in St. Lucia, then discover more on your own.
The Cliff at Cap Maison
If the combination of great food and unbeatable scenery is what you’re after, you definitely have to try The Cliff at Cap Maison. The Cliff offers incomparable seafood and other gastronomic delights – prepared by an award winning chef – for you to enjoy on a bluff high above the Caribbean Sea.
The Coal Pot Restaurant
Every day, local fishermen bring their boats right up to the Coal Pot restaurant to sell their catch, and the chef, Xavier Ribot, wades out ankle deep to get the best.
That’s the signature of The Coal Pot, the use of simple, fresh, Caribbean ingredients combined to create a French fusion menu. The food is never over the top, but well-seasoned with fresh herbs (lots of cilantro) and is well presented. Coal Pot staples include barracuda, kingfish, yellowfin tuna, dorado, lobster, and snapper, which are served with a choice of five or six sauces. And while the restaurant is famous for its fish, the menu also includes duck breast, beef tenderloin, lamb filet, and callaloo soup.
(Lunch is not available on Saturdays.)
Another great view, great food combination in St. Lucia is Dasheene Restaurant. Set right on the legendary Pitons, Dasheene gives you a full view of the mountains and the ocean from your dining spot, 1100 feet above sea level.
Try the roast conch in a yam basket for a taste experience like no other.
Spice of India
Soon after its opening, to date, Spice of India has been considered one of the top restaurants in St. Lucia. The brainchild of Chef Adil, Spice of India is truly a sophisticated Indian restaurant situated in the heart of Rodney Bay. There, Adil celebrates his passion for cooking fine foods by bringing a modern flair to the ancient, traditional Indian Tandoor technique of cooking. Diners can enjoy watching Indian and St. Lucian chefs (under training) in their open display kitchen.
