Restaurants in Castries & Rodney Bay
Jacques Waterfront Restaurant – Rodney Bay
Chef Jacques had been travelling the world for 15 years when he arrived in St. Lucia more than 10 years ago. He bought with him a great appreciation for indigenous ingredients and he has developed his own style of fusion cuisine that combines fresh local ingredients with his French cooking methods and flare for creativity.
Although the menu has a great selection of meat and vegetarian dishes, Chef Jacques specializes in fish and seafood, he made some good friends and contacts in the fishing industry when he lived in the fishing village Soufriere for 4 years when he first came to the island, and can often be seen on the dock in front of the restaurant chatting with fishermen and surveying their fresh catch for unusual delicacies.
He shops personally and can be found daily scouting the market stalls, and other local suppliers, looking for just the right ingredients, the result is meals cooked to perfection. Chef Jacques mixes his own spices and seasonings and, like most French Chefs, he is a talented sauce maker, he also enjoys smoking his own meats and fish.
Jacques’s knowledge and love of wine shows in the wine list, it carries an interesting selection of wines from both France and the new world. The cocktail menu is extensive and contains old favourites and some interesting new ones, try “Jack’s Amazing Electric Frog”!
Cathy Rioux, the chef’s wife is the hostess at Froggie Jacques Waterfront Restaurant, and the service is friendly and efficient.
The lunch menu is casual and brought to you on a blackboard. Dinner is a la carte and each dish is prepared to order. Popular selections include starters like octopus and conch in spicy passion fruit sauce, squid in lime and chive sauce and main courses of fresh catch of the day in Tamarind sauce, or boneless chicken stuffed with local smoked fish in a citrus sauce.
Froggie Jacques Waterfront Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner from Monday and Saturday. Open on Sunday for their popular Jazz & Brunch!

The Coal Pot – Castries
The Coal Pot has been a fine dining experience for the last forty years. Michelle Elliot owns and manages the restaurant.
New World cuisine, the marriage of the freshest Caribbean ingredients with simple, yet exquisite, French cooking methods, is the Coal Pot’s trademark. At lunch, a daily special is served alongside dishes like Greek and shrimp salads. Fresh local fish, prepared in a variety of excellent sauces, is an ideal lunch choice.
Dinner, with linen service, is a relaxed affair. Coquilles St. Jacques and smoked salmon add a continental flair to local delicacies, such as curried chicken served in a coconut shell. There is also a selection of fine wine.
The Coal Pot’s ambiance is as special as the cuisine. The walls of the wood open-air structure are decorated with colorful Caribbean art. These acrylic and water designs are Michelle’s imaginative creations. Just a few feet away from the dining tables, the waters of the Vigie Marina lap against the coral stone beach. On full moon nights, tables are set under the stars.
The Coal Pot is not only a food lover’s delight but an intimate place to lunch and dine!
