Villa Grand Piton



St Lucian restaurants offer a wide variety for such a small island!
From food trucks to fine dining, you’re sure to find something you will like. 

Taste a little of everything on your stay

Here are some of the restaurants that are fairly near the villa, and a few of our personal favorites in other areas of the island.

Soufriere restaurants

As things can change rapidly in St Lucia, please check with Doxie or Junior, or contact the restaurant yourself (phone is best) to ensure they will be open when you plan on dining.

Dining hours can be somewhat limited – many restaurants close for a few hours between lunch and dinner (many close at 2:30 pm and reopen at 6 pm), and late dining options (after 9 or 9:30) are also limited. St Lucians typically have their big meal at lunch, and many of the local restaurants are not open for dinner.

We recommend you call ahead for dinner reservations at most of the “tourist” restaurants, especially during “the season” (mid-December through the end of March).

The St Lucian area code is 758.

Where applicable, icons below are links and will open in a new window if you click on them. The faces and hearts reflect our personal experiences.
