Although this is not inexpensive, the chef creates a variety of local and familiar foods with great creative flair while avoiding the architectural manipulation of the self-conscious. Although it was not original our intent, we bought a meal plan, enjoying its diversity, view, personnel, great bar and music,...for 10 days!

We went here and treated ourselves to a great meal and an even better bottle of wine. By far the best wine selection on the island. We decided to forego the preplanned meals and ordered our own choices of appetizer and enters. Highly recommend the braised need short rib. And you MUST get desert here.

The food was very tasty , but this is not the place to come for a reasonable meal and definitely if you are hungry. Meal portions were "amousse bouche ". No bread on table unless by special request . We have experienced many good , well cooked meals in Martinique and Isle des Saintes which exceed that which we have... More

rddyas I am saddened to hear that your experience was not up to the expectations you had created I would like to know when you dined with us so i can look into this matter a little deeper, to call the Portions all Amuse Bouche is bit of a over statement i find and it gives me the impression you...

On a deck overlooking a beautiful bay with crashing waves and beautiful birds - a great backdrop for a truly local breakfast. I had salt fish with roasted peppers accompanied by warm roasties (soda patties) and dressed cucumber. A tasty and delicate meal served by elegant and amusing staff. I held off the fruit plate made to order but will... More

We just returned from another stay at Cap Maison and we dined at the Cliff at Cap (and Rock Maison) three different evenings. This is absolutely one of the top restaurants in St Lucia. Everything from the amuse bouche to cordials is top notch and makes for a memorable experience. We'll be back.

The food was truly amazing and the setting breath taking. The staff could not do enough for my little girl's birthday and the food was truly delicious. I took a breathe when I got the bill, but well worth the visit.

Dinner at the Cliff was amazing. Nice menu with enough selection to satisfy most. Every course was memorable, including the basics like bread and drinks. And you simply can't beat the setting, especially if you are there at sunset.

We celebrated Valentine's day at The Cliff at Cap Maison. Despite having misplaced our reservation, the staff quickly accommodated us with a lovely table. We had the Tasters Menu which included 3 starters, three small entrees and dessert. Wines were pared with all offerings.

Went for a drink. Very slow service, but you don't mind because the view is so spectacular. Drinks are expensive - $35 US for two. Discovered a basket on a guide wire heading down to a lower deck 75 feet down. Great idea to deliver drinks from the bar in short order.

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.
