We actually stumbled upon Cap Maison looking for somewhere to eat after arriving on St Lucia. Since we did not have reservations and this being a Saturday night we said we would go to the bar to eat. The maitre'd was so kind and gave us a beautiful table outside with a view. The evening's dinner was tapas with wine... More

We drove from the Windjammer where we were staying. Wonderful meal but better for lunch in order to appreciate the view as it was dark by early evening.

The fish dishes are fresh and beautifully presented. t is a joy to spend lunch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, listening to the chirping of the many birds. It is terribly relaxing.

Very good dining experience overall. Food was all very good, but as many have noted the portions are extremely small (living in manhattan I am used to this but this was definitely on the small side...). Ambiance was great and it's really a beautiful property. I wish they opened up at 5:30 PM for dinner (not just drinks), especially since... More

We ate here twice. The first time, we had the a la carte and I would have given it a four star rating, but the second time we all had the chef tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was top notch. Service sometimes slips a little, but nothing major. It's close to a Michelin star, but considering the... More

first meal was absolutely fantastic, great wines, great food, great staff. Sadly when we booked to go back the 2nd time for a wine flight dinner, the sommelier has been put on a private tasting session in the cellars & no-one else who was left had a clue.

Great view. Starters - Crab Risotto absolutely fantastic Michelin level, goats cheese soufflé really bland, tuna sashimi pretty good. Main course - Lion fish really nice but no carbs ?, tuna nicoise great presentation (although I would have cut the Tuna thinner in a fan shape) but missing an aioli or something so a bit bland. So almost there to... More

Beautiful and stunning view!!! Mediocre food/service. Did the tasting menu- some of the offerings were good. One (the foie gras-- usually my favorite!!) was inedible (tasted like it had turned). This threw the whole meal off: they tried to scramble but couldn't get it together. Long delays, incorrect orders, forgot our drinks. We might have expected this if they were... 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.
