We had our reception at this restaurant and it did not disappoint. It was everyone's favorite meal while we were in St. Lucia. Just sad we couldn't make it there another time before we left.

I am very perplexed by the good reviews. Except for a few items, e.g. a tasty shrimp passed off as a prawn, the food though beautifully presented was flavorless. All poultry and fish were frozen, thawed then overcooked. The young, young, young ladies serving us...More

Jacques Waterfront Dining is one of St. Lucia’s most popular restaurants, with a long-standing reputation for consistency in both the quality of the food and the service with which it is delivered. We recently re-opened in a new and exciting waterfront location in the heart of Rodney Bay. This intimate and elegant restaurant right on the edge of the marina is set within the beautiful gardens of Harmony Suites Hotel, with superb uninterrupted views of the marina and hills beyond. Find us just off the main street in Rodney Bay, first right after the East Caribbean Village condo complex. Chef Jacques is well travelled, having worked in Africa, the Middle East and Far East, and enjoys bringing his various culinary experiences into his cuisine. When asked about his style of cuisine he likes to talk of fusion. French and Caribbean cuisines are melded using his French cooking experience and the wonderful Caribbean flavours that are available to him on a daily basis.
