Casual Dining - Look Out For Lucian Specialties!

Eating around Saint Lucia doesn’t have to be an expensive activity if you know where to look. Delicious, valued-priced restaurants offering an international array of flavours and culinary adventures can be found from the north to the south, usually wherever there’s a queue of discerning locals.

If you ask a St. Lucian for dining recommendations, it's likely they will quote from a list of local haunts that have become beloved on the island over the years. Every town and village has its secret go-to spots for barbecue chicken, fresh catch of the day on the grill or a hearty pumpkin soup, and some only open once a week…they're that good! The rule of thumb is that if the local community swear by it, give 'it' a try!

Golden Taste

Duke's Place


For spectacular views while dining, try Pink Papaya at Pointe Seraphine, where the delicious food is often accompanied by the gasp-inducing proximity of a cruise ship, or look down on the same harbour from The Pink Plantation House perched on top of Morne Fortune and cooking the most wonderful, Lucian comfort food for lunch.
