We ate a number of times at The Cliff whilst staying at Cap Maison. It really is a beautiful location - wonderful views from most of the tables but especially on the outside deck. Staff are friendly although drinks can take a little while to come. All meals were delicious, portions aren't huge but that does mean you can enjoy... More

To start with we sat looking out to sea admiring the amazing views and were thrilled to spot a whale frolicking close to the shore whilst sipping on a refreshing G&T ( us that is and not the whale ! ) We then kicked back as the sun set whilst looking over to the historic Pigeon Island. We then had... More

This was a stylish restaurant with impeccable service and with live music too. We had a slight issue with the food but it was professionally dealt with and didn't spoil our evening. As with all caribbean restaurants in spectacular settings the sun was down before we arrived. I should say lunch would therefore be the best time to go!!

Although this is not inexpensive, the chef creates a variety of local and familiar foods with great creative flair while avoiding the architectural manipulation of the self-conscious. Although it was not original our intent, we bought a meal plan, enjoying its diversity, view, personnel, great bar and music,...for 10 days!

We went here and treated ourselves to a great meal and an even better bottle of wine. By far the best wine selection on the island. We decided to forego the preplanned meals and ordered our own choices of appetizer and enters. Highly recommend the braised need short rib. And you MUST get desert here.

We just returned from another stay at Cap Maison and we dined at the Cliff at Cap (and Rock Maison) three different evenings. This is absolutely one of the top restaurants in St Lucia. Everything from the amuse bouche to cordials is top notch and makes for a memorable experience. We'll be back.

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.
