It's worth booking for lunch time because is quite and not crowd . The lobsters grilled are amazing, tasty and unforgettable. All attendants were friendly.

Colombo is a very busy restaurant with very good food! The staff was kept hopping by a very large group, but our service was efficient, and the hostess could not have been more pleasant, and the young chef (who grew up in the business, as I recall) stopped by to say hello and ask about our experience there.

The food was quite good (snapper and chicken), and the side dishes were really delicious! Very Caribbean flavors: spicy, sweet and curry all mixed together. The service was slow but friendly, and the waitstaff is super patient with all the children in the restaurant. We went for lunch and there were many multigenerational families.

The price for a lobster is fixed to 49 € for 800gr. It is served with rice and a small salad as as starter. Everything is perfect, you should not miss it. I highly recommend the lobster. I did not try anything else. You don't need a starter with the lobster, you will definitely not be able to finish. The... More

Generally found it to be overrated. Appetizers were disappointing but the mains were very good. Seems everybody goes there for the lobster. Next time I will only order sea food there. Works for couples family, friends or any sort of group.

We stopped by for lunch on the way back to town from the point and what a treat! Locals and visitors were both tucking in to some great food. The setting is not great - roadside and I was looking at a pile of debris, but the food made up for it. We had grilled lobsters and the lobster salad.... More

We had the goat curry and my husband had an assortment of fish, both were delicious. The wait staff were very kind and worked very hard to make sure we had a good experience.

This restaurant is not to be missed for one reason: it is managed by Indians who are descendants of people who came from India in the XIXth century to replace the black slaves who were just liberated. That gives an interesting fusion cuisine between Caribbean cuisine and Indian cuisine. The meal are quite hearty and yet, excellent.

Expect a large crowded restaurant where your screaming children won't matter and they will be by the lobster tank most of the time anyway. We visited for lunch on a Sunday. Stopped by the restaurant at noon to make a reservation for 1pm. When we arrived it was not there, but they managed to fit our group of 6 people... More

Colombo is a large, airy restaurant just west of the St Francois marina on the main highway (go past the aerodrome, then look for the cars parked on both sides of the road). It's worth the short drive from town to visit. The food was probably the best -- or at least most memorable -- of any of the restaurants... More
