We make a special trip to go to Elena's / to have breakfast. The server was nice, took our order and we waited, and waited, and waited for the food to arrive. NO FOOD, after almost an hour we went to the manager and asked where our food was. She stated they only cook one order at a time and... More

Dear traveling pirate I'm sorry that you were disappointed about the length of time that it took for you breakfast, When you and your wife came to me about the length of time your breakfast was taking; I did check the monitor and realize that there was a large table of 10 and not 6 as you said and that...

From the pizza maker with an attitude to the staff. These people should not be in the restaurant business. Go get a job at gas station and pump gas. Worst service on the island.

Dear Mike M I'm sorry that you felt my pizza chef and staff were being rude; please note that they are well trained and educated in they chosen careers. At the time you visited the Pizza Hut the chef was extremely busy so he was only trying to indicate that he couldn't have a conversation nor take any order from... More

This is one of those restaurants that has just got it right. Pizza is great, made by a real Italian chef, but the menu is quite extensive and caters for all tastes and moods with other traditional and modern Italian fayre. So I'm told the ice cream is to die for - the recipe evidently has been passed down through... More

Hi Nicka Thanks for the great review, both of our Italian chefs are well experienced with the dishes that was chosen for the menu, and it's true the recipe for the ice cream has been passed down through the generations. It's a pleasure having you us. Hope to see you soon More

Love this place, set on the water of the marina of Rodney bay, it's magical. The pizza was surpistingly good! (having just returned from italy last month too!) The prices are fair, but the service (like most restaurants in St. Lucia is aweful) rude waitresses who seem pissed off to seat you. This is the GOTO place for pizza, great... More

Customer service was unacceptable and poor. We waited approximately 40 minutes for a st. Lucia pizza and when it arrived toppings were incorrect and no side plates were given to eat the pizza on. We had to ask for napkins and mid way through eating the meal the manager approached us to change table to accommodate another party. When we... More

Elena's in the Rodney Bay marina is the best pizza on the island. Always freshly made and reasonably priced. There are lots of topping options and they always tasty. I'm very fond of the anchovy pizza with a glass of red wine while overlooking the lovely marina. Busy and buzzy on a Friday and Saturday night.

Strange place to visit, the pizzas are lovely and tasty, nice location in the marina and great views, unfortunately the restaurant is let down by stroppy staff who spend most of the time saying 'what' every time you ask for something, lovely food but rude staff.

Great lunchtime spot which looks out over the marina. Can't help looking at the house opposite with envy! Food is great and service is with a smile. Love their St. Lucian pizza.

This dockside restaurant/cafe is a great place to enjoy Italian style food in a great setting. Children are welcomed, the staff make a huge fuss of them, and there is plenty of safe space for them to play and run off steam, including sea grape trees to climb. Our stone baked pizzas and a huge lasagne were excellent, as was... More
