If you're expecting a high end restaurant this isn't the place for you,Skippers is more your local cafe serving buffet style food. You purchase the food separately and alcohol from the bar,so don't leave without paying your individual bills. Best to lunch here as they only serve food until it runs out not replenishing it. We ate ham burger and... More

Loved this place! Know it as Skippers as that is the sign that is most easily seen on the street. This was the best meal by far that we have had so far. Price is medium range ($45 USD for two large plates). One thing to make note of is that the kitchen is not always open for supper. They... More

This is a wanna-be fine dinning restaurant for tourists. They have a beautiful but artificial setting, the softest cotton napkins, nice plates, pretty arrangement of the food on the plates and the waitresses have been well trained in manners. Unfortunately, the food is bland (probably for American tourists) and lacking the ingredients promised: according to the menu our salads were... More

Skippers Restaurant's lunch buffet was very good. As my friends and I are somewhat picky eaters we were very happy for the way they accommodated us with our food selections. From the cashier to the server, they were all very friendly. We will definitely return here on another trip to Soufriere.

A local place with a pool table, bar food, and a great collection of people. Sunday night at 9 and it is about the only place open for a snack. They kicked 2 local guys out of their chairs, grabbed the table and brought it outside for us as it was too hot inside. We sat on the sidewalk and... More

We stopped by Skippers Restaurant one evening after it was recommended by a taxi driver for its buffet. There were several tourists eating and a few others at the bar so we assumed it must be good. Apparently the buffet choices are only for lunch. The menu was on a wall chalkboard and seemed quite limited. I had a chicken... More

Good views, food and service-as you would expect from the Hotel Chocolate brand-and you really do get chocolate in every dish!
