Exterior View - Apsara, St. Lucia, Caribbean


A bit of history: after slavery on St. Lucia was outlawed in 1838, thousands of indentured workers were brought over from India, and many eventually settled here. Apsara, the candlelit beachside restaurant at the Anse Chastanet resort, reflects this diversity, with a menu that’s primarily Indian with local influences. Most of the meat and breads are prepared in a tandoor oven. Dessert might include tandoori-baked pineapple and masala coffee mousse. The easiest way to get to the restaurant (it’s open to non-guests) is by water taxi. Reservations are recommended.

Dinning Area ta Boudreau, St. Lucia, Caribbean


Situated in an open two-story dining room on a wooden deck overlooking Marigot Bay, the main restaurant at the Discovery resort has one of the island’s prettiest settings. The chef likes to experiment with Caribbean-inspired dishes, many made with organic ingredients from St. Lucia’s farms and plantations. A nice touch is the “local cuisine menu,” a nightly prix fixe that showcases Caribbean cooking in dishes like breadfruit-crusted shrimp with pickled papaya and mango salad, rabbit served with sweet potato and plantain and a tropical fruit gratin. The rest of the menu has a more classic Continental slant, but is heavy on fresh seafood.


Dinning Area at Chateau Mygo, St. Lucia, Caribbean

Chateau Mygo

This restaurant, at the Marigot Bay Resort and Marina is a great place for lunch. The covered-dock location is casual, with colorful tablecloths, stuffed toy parrots hanging from the ceiling, strings of tiny lights and quirky signs with messages like “The Queen does not Cook.” Ignore the Caesar salads and burgers—clearly for the less intrepid—and order from the short but tasty selection of Indian-Creole fare. Fish rôti, the West Indian version of a burrito with a tortilla-like wrap made from chickpea flour, comes with potatoes, eggplant and snapper in curry-coconut sauce.

The Coal Pot Restaurant

The Coal Pot comes highly recommended by island insiders. The waterfront restaurant, an island institution for four decades (the daughter of the original owners runs it), overlooks Vigie Cove. French-born chef Xavier Ribot, who has lived on St. Lucia for more than a decade, changes the menu almost daily, depending on the seafood catches.
