We had a 5 hour layover in St Lucia so we decided to leave the airport and go have lunch somewhere close to the airport. The Reef is about a 5 minute drive from the airport. It is on the beach. The food is basically...More

Really nice beachside lunch spot, under the tree's, in the sand. Fresh fish sticks and the tuna sandwich yum. Don't miss the coffee shake!

This place is right on the beach and maybe that’s what you are paying for, but they do the bare minimum for breakfast and at an extremely high price. Don’t stop!More

Thanks for taking the time to review us, Susan. I'm sorry we didn't live up to your expectations. Yes, we are right on the beach, and yes, that does make for a great outdoor setting to have a nice, big, relaxed breakfast. In fact, it's...More

this is a chilled out beach bar/restaurant near the airport, good food, reasonable prices and sunbeds for the beach if you want to watch the kite surfers and enjoy the breeze, we came her a few times during our holiday and enjoyed it each time.

We checked in and dropped our bags the recommended +two hours before our flight, but didn't yet return the rental so we made the short hop from the airport to this cafe. Obviously very popular with the locals--a good sign. Right on the beach, so...More

Thank you, Tourtis, for taking the time to visit and review us. So glad we turned out all right! :) Indeed, there is a lot more sweetness to St Lucia than tourist resorts alone.

Beautiful location, friendly staff, and the atmosphere was just as expected. Order curry which pretty good along with a very fresh salad. Side of fries was hot and crisp. Octopus was tasty but a little salty.

The Reef Beach Cafe is open 7 days per week, from 8:00 am till 10:00 pm (Mondays until 6pm), and offers a simple but nicely varied menu of Creole and international (sea)food, a range of fast foods (including home made pizza), breakfast, fresh milkshakes, cappuccinos, cold beers and hot cocktails, at prices as low as we can keep them, making The Reef affordable to both locals and visitors. The Reef Kite + Surf is located right next to The Reef Beach Cafe, and there are tables inside as well as outside under the gum and sea grape trees on the beach.
