I booked a reservation in advance for our anniversary and ordered flowers for the table. Everything was great and the staff treated us like royalty. Loved the Clif!

We ate here every day for a week. Each course was of high quality, well presented and served by a great team. The food was consistently good from first to last. My favourites were chowder, mahi mahi, belly pork and trios of puddings.

We had to visit this iconic place for my birthday dinner. We had the set menu which consisted of 3 separate 'Tapas style' dishes for each course. The food was sensational and our table outside overlooking the sunset on the bay was idyllic. The service was perfect followed by a birthday cake and celebration song by the staff rounded off...

We reserved the private deck on the water for a dinner for 6 people. The pre-sunset drinks were great; the champagne "zip-line" was fun. Just as we were seated for dinner, the mozzies came out in full force. After a 15-minute delay (it felt like an eternity while we were being bitten), the staff got several coils burning and that...

Book a table on the front line deck to enjoy the view and the breeze. The ceviche and mahi mahi fish are outstanding if you like spicy cuisine. Excellent place also for breakfast with a large choice of fruits and fresh made local specialties

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.
