We all had a spectacular evening at the cliffs. We did the tasting menu and the food and wine pairings were excellent. The atmosphere of the restaurant and the crashing waves below made for a wonderful experience. The staff was so friendly as well. I highly recommend the cliffs

My bf surprised me with dinner here. First of all the view is amazing! The food was excellent and the serviced matched. Our waiter was very attentive and new just when to give you some alone time. We were even greeted by two female managers who inquired about our experience. Will definitely dine here again!

We stayed 10 days at the Cap Maison in a decent room with balcony, but not one of the larger suites/villas. Our food was in our prepaid package. We were very impressed - great breakfasts with an innovative menu, and quality evening meals cooked to order and superbly presented. The Naked Fisherman also had good food by the beach, but... More

Our husbands had the "Tasting Menu" which was good with the exception of the main course which was cold. I had the seafood which was inedible. Scallops, shrimp and muscles were cooked to a rubbery consistency which was more then well done. Dinner for $700 should be exceptionally...this was far from it. Great view...but worth the $$$...NO.

I visited for both lunch and dinner and whilst I wouldn't fault dinner in the slightest , the views add something extra at lunchtime with the staff a little more laid back.

On Saturday nights (at least the one we were there) they do not offer their regular menu--it is a fixed, no choice menu that I personally did not like at all. More on that in a bit. They also do not open till 630 (after sunset!) for dinner. Our butler had made reservations for us at 515 so we sat... More

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.
