The place looks good. Waiters are friendly. We ordered prawns which is on the menu and they dont have any. Gave us a long storey about the water is infected and for that reason they dont have prawns. We ordered pizzas but asked for a bit of anchiove to be added. We were charged R80.00 extra for the anchovies alone.... More

I visit this restaurant every time I am in St Lucia .. service was slow but pizza 🍕 good. Prices are for the tourist I actually saw people leaving as they are pricy. We got confused when paying the bill as we had 3 waiters helping us. And their cocktails 🍹 are so good and that's my first stop in... More

I wanted to like this place. It has a prominent spot on the main drag next to Heritage Tours. It has a terrace overlooking the street and two indoor seating sections. One modern bright and nautically themed with cool portholes in the kitchen area and the other with the feel of being in a ship's cabin . Nice coastal photos... More

We ordered gourmet Burgers. We got them very fast. I ate one chips and put on some salt vinegar etc. Then they took it away and gave to another table that ordered before us. But the burgers we got later was fantastic.

Food okay, service a bit slow and you couldn't always get what you wanted as supplies were limited. However, I had a Chicken Burger which was delicious but cold! I didn't want to complain as it took 45 minutes to be served!

Staff was friendly and my food was ok (filletsteak), but the opposite with my partner. She ordered a burger well done but it was raw from the inside. Returned to the kitchen and the second burger wasnt much better. Staff took it serious but for us not a recommendation!

The service and food here were excellent, but prices are very high. Good portions, but you have to weigh it up against the cost of the food. Lovely venue and staff were very polite and helpful. As local South Africans, it seems prices are set for overseas tourist in St Lucia which is a real shame.

After having drawn a blank at various locations in St Lucia with WiFi, we ended up here. Very much appreciated the efficient service & the involvement of management. Good coffee and cakes to die for. All of us enjoyed the experience. As a regular visitor to this area, we will come again.
