The presentation of the food was amazing. Every tiny piece was delicious. This restaurant is included in the all-inclusive package and should not be missed. The views from the restaurant were amazing, the drinks were awesome, and every option was a great option!

Is there an age policy at this restaurant, please? We will be travelling with our one year old and would love to dine in the evening to watch the sunset.

our restaurant does not have a policy regarding the age of the children. All we ask for is that the privacy and enjoyment of the atmosphere in the restaurant is respected as we want all to enjoy the same sunset.

The Cliff at Cap Restaurant was famously hailed by The New York Times and is already one of the most highly sought after tables on the island. Located on the northwest coast in one of the Caribbean's most dramatic settings overlooking the surging Caribbean Sea. The kitchen at The Cliff at Cap is overseen by Welsh born Executive Chef Craig Jones, a St Lucian Chef of the Year recipient, who serves an inspired French West Indian contemporary menu. His nouveau French West Indian cuisine elegantly presents the bounty of St Lucia's fresh local farm produce and seafood readily sourced on this tropical island. The Cliff at Cap offers unobstructed views towards Martinique to the north and Pigeon Island to the West, and surrounded by the magnificent Caribbean sea, with sunsets to die for. The restaurant is open to non residents from breakfast to dinner with a dress code of smart casual.
