Archie's one block from dinghy dock in Soufriere. Food is very good local. Dave, the proprietor is experienced (prior food/beverage manager at Sandals), ensures the food is fresh, locally grown, and cooked in the local style. We had chicken and fish and both were great. We had lunch there two days in a row. Highly recommend.

First time in St. Lucia and we found restaurants very expensive, until we found Archie's Bar which provided great food at a very reasonable price. Lobster, fish, chicken and pork. The manager "Super Dave" was friendly and you must try his spicy pork stew. Drink was also cheap, his rum punch was great.

Really wanted to try this place, but must have popped in on off hours between lunch and dinner each time. When I asked the girl who was working the bar about dinner (only two options - meat or fish) and the cost (she said there's no menu), she first said she didn't know, then said she didn't want to say...

We've been to Archies a couple of times and enjoyed it immensely. The drinks are cold, the food is excellent (I highly recommend the chicken roti) and the staff friendly. For three of us to eat, with at least two drinks each, it came to under $75 XCD or $30 USD. The portions are large, fresh and very tasty. The... More

Its solid, great tasting creole. Yes the choices are going to be just a few items as has been mentioned. Yes Soufriere is going to feel a bit different then here in the states - though personally I didn't find the town to be any less safe then anywhere else I've visited. Yes, your options are going to be less... More

Despite the annoyed demeanor of the waitress at Archie's, the food is amazing and Archie himself is a darling. If you go in expecting a bit of an icy reception from the waitress, and remember that it is not personal, just her personality, then you will be hard pressed to find a better place to go for good, cheap, local...
