We found this restaurant by chance while reading a restaurant menu from Creole the maitre d said that Ti Bananas formerly rebranded from Koko Cabana has a better fish selection and served as a fillet and not bone in whole which my wife wanted. It was hard to find from the main road but just behind the Scotia bank and... More

This restaurant is an extension of the Coco Palm hotel, the service there is excellent. My best encounter is with Patricia Charles, lovely woman and caters to you every need. The food is very tasty, take the recommendations of the servers, you won't regret it.

My wife and I returned to Koko Cabana for the first time in ten years on Valentine's Day, hoping for a holiday's brunch. However, we found that coming at eleven wasn't a good idea when we were told that there was only a buffet on this holiday, and it would begin at noon. Rather than walk around the area, we... More

Ate the Ribs & no drinks , just water, had the worst heartburn & indigestion ever. Couldn't sleep all night & felt off next day. Wife liked the Seafood Alfredo. This was the only meal on 2 weeks I Had trouble with in St Lucia which makes me wonder about the quality of the ribs.

Tried this restaurant in the Coco Palm Hotel. Wasn't sure what to expect but had one of our best meals on the island of St. Lucia. The coconut curry fish was outstanding along with the local Mahi Mahi with creole sauce. The Key Lime pie was excellent. Atmosphere was classy, pleasant, "old school" Caribbean. Very reasonably priced for the quality.... More

I recently dined at this restaurant celebrating a friend's birthday and I have never tasted food this BAD! The appetizer to the main course and sides were just distasteful. Each person ordered something different from the menu allowing us to have a taste of something else and every single dish was disgusting. Everyone at the dinner table sang the same... More

Really good breakfast buffet. Egg station with yummy omelettes (or eggs prepared anyway you like), seasonal fresh fruit and a few local delicacies. So many options whether you're a light eater or looking to have a heavy breakfast

I am not sure how this restaurant got into Fodor's. It is a hotel restaurant that is kind of hard to find if you are not a guest -- and they think you are one. We were assumed to be staying at the hotel by every new service person. I almost went ahead and gave them our room number. But... More
