Honestly....the best food we have eaten in a vacation....ever! We were there for 4 nights and ate at the resort for every meal (except 1 lunch ) Chef Craig is truly a culinary mastermind . He puts a French twist in Caribbean food but with a high quality high end feel. We got the pleasure to experience the "guest chef"... More

Food is delicious and the spot is gorgeous. Most entries are pretty pricey, but that is to be expected at a resort in the Caribbean

Went as a special treat with friends on Saturday evening, music was excellent staff very good, we had the taster menu, which was very good. We had 2 bottles of wine and the cost was £150,00 / couple, but I was eaten alive by mosquitos and sand flies. It was so bad I did not sleep for itching, if you... More

Very nice location and attentive service with a great wine list. However the food is a bit dull and pedestrian, it's ok but not as good as the location and service.

We drove up to Cap Madison to do some snorkeling. We had heard the snorkeling was very good. In addition, the Cliff Restaurant was supposed to be very good as well. The snorkeling on the day we went (late Feb), was not great. Nice little secluded beach with picturesque views. The water was choppy and the water a bit cloudy... More

We were on the all-inclusive so price wasn't an issue. I can see it being quite expensive otherwise. Stunning views of the sunset. The food was delicious however and we walked satisfied for every meal.

We had an excellent dinner here. The food and service were outstanding. We ordered a variety of items among the five of us and they were all delicious. We dined at 7:30pm and wish we had come earlier to enjoy the scenery and sunset. Next time!

There was really nothing not to like. The food was well prepared, good choices, paid attention to food allergies. I had a tequila drink that wasn't great but it could have been my taste buds. The setting is magnificent - the prices may reflect that.

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.
