In Marigot Bay:
Indian & Asian fusion, currently the #1 restaurant on the island on Tripadvisor.
The decor of the restaurant is contemporary , bright colors, comfortable seating , impeccable service, a beautiful elevated view of Marigot Bay from the balcony (seen in photo to the right), and last but not least excellent food with an extended choice of vegetarian plates.

Regularly rated on Trip Advisor among the top ten restaurants in the Caribbean, Rainforest Hideaway is just a three minute walk or a one minute ferry ride from Oasis Marigot.
Set in the mangroves on a dock surrounding a lagoon full of performing fish, Rainforest is a truly magical dining experience. Jean René, the Maitre D’ and Chef Myron have been with Rainforest from the beginning, building the dock by hand and creating a fine dining restaurant in a rustic tropical setting.
The menu is a fusion of French and Asian with some strong Caribbean flavours and we usually have a sample menu pinned on our board on the beach. Of course, the menu changes according to what fresh ingredients are available so there are always some nice surprises. Starter selections might include vanilla ravioli stuffed with ginger and coconut crab with a lime and coriander dressing, or jerked scallops and king prawns sautéed in garlic and served with a creamy Parmesan risotto. Main courses may feature seared fillet of mahi-mahi served with a puree of sweet potato and ginger and a red pepper sauce, or herb crusted rack of lamb served with nutmeg spiced gnocchi and a chili tomato salsa.
Awarded the Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor in 2013, this is one of the newest restaurants in the area. Known for its catch of the day, the view of the bay is also worth stopping in for if you are craving local cuisine
Chateau Mygo House of Seafood is located waterside at Marigot Bay. A third generation local restaurant owned and operated by Chef Shaid Rambally. His cuisine is an exotic fusion of East Indian and Creole cooking. Fresh ingredients such as mangos, papayas, okra, taro root, ripe plaintains along with fresh Atlantic red snapper, mahi mahi and Caribbean Lobster are used in his recipes.
Chateau Mygo is also the only Sushi bar located on the west coast of St. Lucia. Try our spicy tuna roll or the crunch calamari roll. Sashimi and a variety of hand rolls can also be special ordered. They do over 20 specialty thin crust pizzas such as the BBQ Chicken Pizza, The Hurricane, or the famous Lobster Pizza.
Doolittle’s Restaurant & Bar
In 1967 Marigot Bay was one of the main locations used in filming the classic Rex Harrison movie Dr Doolittle. Movie critics say the beautiful scenery helps draw the viewer into the movie… and who are we to argue?
When you visit Doolittles Restaurant and Bar you’ll fall in love with the alfresco dining area overlooking the crystal waters of Marigot Bay. You’ll see hummingbirds darting among the flowers that line the restaurant’s walkways, parrot fish swimming through the corals, and crabs sunbathing on the jetty.
Where the locals take their breakfast and lunch; Bernice’s is a local food shack, completely unnamed and virtually inconspicuous standing next the Marigot Bay ferry dock. You may have reservations about trying it (no pun intended), but we assure you Bernice is meticulously clean and a consistently great cook.
Lunches there are delicious and filling, and likely the best true ‘local’ cuisine you can find in the bay.
It’s also a wonderful place to swing by for a local breakfast; as authentic as it gets: cocoa tea and saltfish johnny cake (shown right).
