Went here for dinner and was very happy with the pizza and pasta we ordered. Service, like most places in St Lucia, was very good.

We ate here twice during our stay at Rodney Heights. It was only a short walk away from our villa and the cold beer was very welcome in the warm evenings. Great pizza and fantastic BBQ chicken and ribs. Thank you for 2 wonderful meals.
