Tips for where to eat and recommended restaurants

Ocean Basket - St. Lucia

Convenient location in the heart of St. Lucia Village

Fats Lazarides, the owner of this fantastic seafood chain,  saw in 1995 an opportunity to create something that customers were calling a restaurant that served delicious affordable seafood. In those days the restaurant included a fresh fish deli. Seafood restaurants were reserved for the upper crust, and a portion of prawns was a real extravagance.

Today this chain offers fresh and fantastic seafood to an absolutely reasonnable price.

And we really loved the fresh prawns served with delicious garlic butter! The service was attentive and charming
