What to eat in St. Lucia
A family business since 1966, The Coalpot Restaurant is an elegantly rustic place to savor a meal infused with local and French flavors. Start off with the lobster bisque with a touch of cognac, or the St. Lucian callooloo soup, and then move on to fresh seafood (from lobster to barracuda), or tender meats such as the lamb fillet or duck breast—all accompanied by your choice of savory sauces. Your visit to this restaurant will not be complete if you don't try their exquisite desserts such as the crème brûlée with local banana marinated in rum.
Considered the island's best and most creative restaurant, The Edge serves "Eurobbean" cuisine prepared by its award-winning Chef Bobo. The innovative fusion of St. Lucian and French cuisine is evident in every single creation like the Angostura 1919 drunken breast of duck rubbed with tonka beans and Caribbean spices or the chocolate-and-chili-marinated pork tenderloin with chicken boudin. Even the desserts have an edge: Try the Jagermeister jelly and hibiscus-honey mousse with sorrel sorbet and pumpkin seeds brittle. St. Lucia's first and only sushi bar is also here.
Cast a food spell
The perfect after-beach spot, Castaways is a casual restaurant with a family-friendly menu. Many finger foods are served, some of which actually include the word "fingers" in its name (chicken fingers, dolphin fingers). Folks with big appetites will be thrilled to find hearty choices like the TooBig Sandwiches, Monster Burgers and roast meals. And of course, what would a nautical-themed restaurant be without clams, seafood and crab legs—all of the aforementioned delicacies are served in hefty proportions and perfectly cooked.
