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

Asides the stunning views looking out to Martinque and Rodney Bay, the creative menus, attentive staff, we also had the company of Davidson, the hotel cat. Neither of us are cat people, but Davidson is very special! Just like the food, the wine list and the staff. Every night's menu was a special treat and one we really looked forward... More

We went to the Cliff at Cap to celebrate our engagement and really enjoyed our meal. It was definitely a splurge compared to our other meals, but worth the celebration (I think we spent around $220 US total for 2). The view and sound of the ocean crashing below simply can't be beat.

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.
