Spinnakers is a wonderfully located beach bar. You can't really beat the view. 6 of us had lunch here and everyone agrees the food was great! We were disappointed that they didn't have many of the ingredients to make the drinks we wanted from the...More

We went to Spinnakers several times during our 2 weeks stay in Rodney Bay. They make the most delicious beef burger and the service is excellent; the manageress even charged my mobile phone for me.

Went in for dinner with no reservation. Stood in the doorway for five minutes while being ignored. We were finally motioned toward a table next to a group of 12 who were talking so loud that they drowned out the music. This despite the fact...More

As is usual on this lovely Island the people are very friendly and genuinely sound as if they are happy to have you visit their restaurant. We were seated at an "almost on the beach" table and were quickly sipping our cocktails! To start I...More

The view is great here. The food is pretty good, though it leans towards more touristy and less local. We both had fish, and it was tasty and fresh. I would not recommend getting a table right by the beach as locals will approach you...More

We dropped by to check out Happy Hour (5-6 PM daily) and were not disappointed. Most of their house drinks are 2 for 1, as is their wine. Beer is $1 off. The water views and sunset were great, as was the service. We did...More

We went here for a late breakfast. You can't deny it has great views. They do pancakes, English breakfast, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, etc... Service was very slow, I think we waited about 45 mins for our breakfasts and definitely shouldn't have gone hungry!...More

This is a beachfront open air restaurant at Reduit Beach. We only had a couple of drinks while looming over the busy beach. Travellers on cruise ships stop by here. There are street vendors who cannot sell in the beach, but who will stop you...More

Hi Anne, I am the owner of Spinnakers. I am sorry you had such a poor experience as you can see from almost all of our other comments, this is not our usual standard of food or service. I am not sure what day you visited the restaurant, but suspect it was Sunday8th May? This was a really, really busy day, due to it being the last day of Jazz and we had many unexpected guests just turning up. Plus we had staff off that day due to illness. Not that you will be interested in these problems and I am not making an excuse as such, just trying to explain that this was a "one off". I do hope that if you visit St.Lucia again you will give us another try? By the way, did you tell the manager on duty of your disappointment?

Thanks for your comments. Actually it is not a huge problem usually. They are there but 95% take NO for an answer. If you had mentioned it to your waitress she would have either got rid of the guy herself or got the manager to do it. This one does seem to have taken a liking to you if he followed you to your taxi!

Hi Steve, VAT is included in our menu prices and this is clearly stated. It is a legal requirement that VAT is charged and included in all prices. It is also clear that a 10% service charge will be added to your bill, so what is there to "beware" of???!!!
