Reviewed 24 March 2013

mama Sheila's stands out just set back from the winding main road of the island on your way to Marigot Bay. this was our destination for our accommodation we noticed it straight away vivid apricot. it was a talking point for the 1st 3-4 days of our holiday. having paid a fortune at the local restaurant Doolittles and then getting caught with a very rough chicken sandwich lunch in Castries. We decided to try it. Hoping 3rd time lucky. It was like being a dinner guest at some ones home. Collection from the ferry pier driven to the restaurant with pleasant conversation from the driver who turned out to be Mama Sheila's son and our waiter. The food was great Pumkin soup that had a texture of silk and piping hot both the chicken and fish creole dishes with rice and steamed veg were very good and the banana flambe just perfect plus several drinks and Bob Marley completed a most enjoyable last night on the island and to top it all when we asked if they could call a taxing Mama Sheila junior said we don't abandon our guests and promptly took us back to the ferry pier.

My wife and I were staying Marigot Bay and wanted to try something more local than the upscale restaurants right at the water's edge. Mama Sheila's fit the bill nicely. One of us had the fish of the day and the other the chicken dish. Both were delicious and I particularly enjoyed the day's vegetables which were tastily prepared and a generous portion too.
It's just a short way's toward Castries from where the road from Marigot joins the main road. If you were ambitious I think you could walk there in less than an hour.
Go! You'll be glad you did.

This is a great local place that serves authentic creole food, and if you call they will provide transport from marigot bay to the resturant at no additional cost...Pumkin Soup was to die for

We stumbled upon this restaurant on the way back from visiting the Pitons. Did not quite know what to expect by looking at the outside. When walking inside we were greeted by a friendly waitress - Amanda. The restaurant is super casual, nothing spectacular. However, the food is just to die for! If you are looking for an authentic meal, fresh and tasty food, super friendly service, Mama Sheila's has got it all!

Quality local food, generous portions, and cheap prices - trust us! You must stop by for a meal.

Mama Shiela's is about a 30-minute walk from the water at Marigot Bay, through a little settlement, but the food & service were great. We had reviewed the menu beforehand on our return from a tour in the Castries area, & were impressed enough to return by foot that night. We both had seafood. It was tasty, & we got our money's worth.
