This place is just okay. The beers are cheap and the food it just eh. I had mozzarella sticks made from the string mozzarella and I was done. That and the attitudes of the women working there were horrible. Not one smile. Not a nice word. Nothing. Not a good representation of St. Lucia's wonderful people and food.

We were recommended this little restaurant situated on Pigeon Island by friends. Getting there involves a little walk from the gates of the National Park. It is very well worth the little effort involved. It has no pretensions and is a small, local home cooked style place with rustic furniture. We were immediately made to feel very welcome by all...

We have been coming to St Lucia every year for years. We have managed to not come to Jambe de Bois before. What a mistake. This is a REAL GEM. We came for dinner and loved the atmosphere, rustic furniture from driftwood and local art on display. The food is tasty tasty tasty. Rotis are cheap, main courses are delicious:... More

It was the final meal of the trip. We ventured to pigeon island to hit two birds with one stone. See the park and get some food. The seafood lasagnas were very oily but somewhat tasty. The crab cakes were okay. The humus could've been better. The curry lamb, however,was fantastic!!!!! The service was very slow; serving team made us... More

Jambe de Bois in the Pigeon Island National Park is a must for anyone visiting St Lucia, a short walk up to the pigeon island peaks will give an appetite for this great little restaurant with fabulous views across Rodney Bay

This creative hidden gem has spectacular views of Rodney Bay and displays local art for purchase. The food is simple but delicious and fresh and the beer is cold! Lovely outdoor wooden furniture from drift wood and old boat parts adds to seaside / rustic theme. Busy in the evening so recommend booking.

Staff were very friendly, so many specials on offer we could not count them all on our fingers. Food was delicious and not overpriced slightly. Good atmosphere, but quiet at the same time. A place to get away from people at hotels and resorts for a couple hours.

Been before, went again, same experience. Overall a disappointing experience with a number of things missing from the menu, orders incorrectly taken and no apology for lack of some items and the screw ups.

This place is a little gem in the National Park. Superb fish fillet baguette absolutely delicious at realistic prices which allowed us to use our own discretion to tip. How refreshing! Furniture a bit rustic but not bothered about that with such lovely food! Finished off with a swim in the gorgeous sea at the nearby sandy beach.... Heaven

This restaurant iis located in Pigeon Island National Park. During the day you pay to enter the park , but in the evening for dinner there is no charge. Even with the charge , the view and food are more than worth it. Atmosphere is " rustic" but the food is excellent lunch or dinner. A fun place to eat... More
