Our group of two coupes had dinner there last week and overall, we were a little disappointed. Mainly with the food. With a French heritage, the portions were very, very small, compared to all of our other dinners out. We did have some expectations, but the portions were even smaller than that. The outdoor dining area is truly spectacular, even... More

What a nice spot to go to eat. On the cliff over looking the sea with a great view. Nice to be treated like a royal with good food in a romantic setting. We did not stay at this hotel (pricy but looks fantastic) but stopped in because found it on a walk.

The team at Cap Maison helped make my boyfriend's 30th birthday an unforgettable one. I booked the private table on the Rock at the Cap. The cocktails are amazing, views are spectacular and the service levels was amazing.

If you like a European experience in the Caribbean and find high prices attractive give it a visit .If not drop down from Cap and indulge in some true local hospitality in Gros Islet and the area around Rodney Bay

Description
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.
