Recommended by our accommodation, this restaurant takes some finding unless you know where it is. But it's worth seeking out. Unsurprisingly, seafood is the main item on the menu although, pizzas, burgers, salads and meat dishes are also available. Four of us dined and the two ladies shared their signature dish of a kilo of grilled prawns served with chips... More

This is a brewery venue for a meal with excellent views over the estuary. We ofter go out of our way to have lunch here. Their pizzas are great and fish and chips good value for money.

Visited with friends for lunch and dinner as there was no where else within safe walking distance from our campsite. The menu lacks vegetarian option so i asked for just a cheese and slaw panini which they did do but charged me for a meat one which is always going to me more money. Got the wrong drink and had...

Come sit, relax have a drink and stare at the water. Maybe even see a hippo! Friendly staff and even a pool for those super hot days

The Ski Boat Club name hints at a fancier place than it actually is. I found this restaurant to be similar to other restaurants in the area in terms of quality, but its location near the beach is what elevates the appeal.

We stopped off with our guide on Thursday of South African mid-term break for lunch. This place has a great location, overlooking the estuary and the thunderous sea. Great start. The food selection was ok for a club (it is a ski club) but it was let down by slow service and a so so final product. It seemed bizarre... More

The Ski boat club has really improved over the years. There is now an extensive menu with all kinds of options including delicious hamburgers which are popular amongst the locals. The view is spectacular with hippos and crocodiles in the estuary with the backdrop of the ocean. A definite must visit if you're in St Lucia.

Drove right past it with previous visits to St Lucia. Last visit went in to have a look. What a great experience. Don't expect anything fancy, just good food with good friend with a great view. Reasonably priced menu. Great to sit on the grass area and soak up the smells and sun of the area.

Great little bar and restaurant, excellent seafood and great service. Good host who told us personal story involving hippos. Hippos on the other side of the fence during our meal.

While walking around St.Lucia and when you near the beach, give this place a try. You can sit inside or outside in the garden next to the water. Good menu with something for everybody. Service was nice and polite. Meals are large, maybe a little bit to large but they tasted good. Enjoy the sun and your lunch.

The name says it is a club but the restaurant /pub is open to the public. It has a fantastic view from the outside tables where you can watch hippos, corcs and more. I would like to write a review for this, I also have photos.
