We had a quick lunch during a trip to St. Lucia, and apart from a chips/salad mix-up all the meals were good. The chicken strip panini was underwhelming and flavourless, but the pizza was good and the staff accommodating. Great view of the estuary too.

We went to this place since our guesthouse owner said this restaurant serves the best food. I don't know what she's taking, maybe I need the same stuff, since the food was absolutely terrible. We had some fish that was really dry and the sauce that came with it was bad. We also had a cheese burger - the beef... More

Good food and prices. Only the pizza is not good. Owner on duty all the time. Fast and friendly service and in a safe area. Pizza not good. will go back again when in St Lucia.

If you anywhere remotely near St. Lucia, maybe make a detour and have a meal at the Ski Boat Club, situated at the estuary (almost at the beach), the location is amazing. The food is great and reasonably priced, we ordered a combination of starters to snack on, lovely wine list to choose from, our second visit and the service... More

My friend and I decided to pop into the Ski boat club and the service we received from Henk was outstanding . We were not going to eat as we already had but as the food came out the kitchen we could not control ourselves so snacked on their house fries and jalapeño poppers .. the view is fabulous and...

Good service if perhaps a little too personal from friendly Henk.Wife and I shared prawns that were well cooked and presented with nice chips.Seating on wooden bench tables is adequate and to be replaced soon with modern plastic versions.We were party of 6 and burgers large and tasty.Butterfish very nice.We also had lunch at this venue.View of estuary is unsurpassed...

Restaurant has a great view on the lake st. Lucia! Its a bit rushing considering big amounts of visitors but food is ok and prices are cheap. Quality of the food isnt very exciting though. Note it looks more as a sportsbar than a calm restaurant. For us average recommendation, nothing special

It is good "take away" - sit down food with nice few on the lagoon. We always had good food, service is sometimes slow, depending on the waiter, what also adds up is the time of your visit. We cannot say anything negative about this relaxed open-air restaurant, we will always go back to enjoy another good meal, because when... More

The name says it is a club but the restaurant /pub is open to the public. It has a fantastic view from the outside tables where you can watch hippos, corcs and more. I would like to write a review for this, I also have photos.
