Great view. That's the good part of this review. Very overpriced for dining experience and service. Great wine list and you pay for it. Steak ordered medium rare and delivered medium well. Prix fixe dessert added to bill in error. Sure it was. Best part...More

It's a lovely setting and the food was nice, if over priced for the portion sizes, but the bugs won in the end and we had to take dessert home with us. The staff were all extremely polite and helpful, but if you decide to...More

Is there an age policy at this restaurant, please? We will be travelling with our one year old and would love to dine in the evening to watch the sunset.

Response from CapMais | Property representative |
our restaurant does not have a policy regarding the age of the children. All we ask for is that the privacy and enjoyment of the atmosphere in the restaurant is respected as we want all to enjoy the same sunset.

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.
