Coal Pot Dining For Poinsettia Guests

Coal Pot Restaurant, French Caribbean Dining


We always recommend the Coal Pot Restaurant to our guests at Poinsettia. The cuisine is very Caribbean with a hint of French and some decidedly French dishes like Mussels Provencal. The catch of the day is always excellent. It comes with your choice of sauces, rice and peas and vegetables very West Indian style.



Its a rustic sort of place, rather Bohemian, casual-chic and right on the water. Get a table on the waterfront and you will be just inches away from the shallows on the shore beside your table. The fish dart in and out amongst the pebbles. Notice the art on the walls and the fun Earthware dinner set, along with the old rum factory vats. The art is by Michelle Elliott one of the founders of the restaurant, daughter of avid sailor Bob Elliot an adventurer who sailed across the Atlantic to St. Lucia.

Dine With The Stars

You are in good company here; many stars, prime ministers and princesses have dined at Coal Pot over the years. It is generally full at lunch time with business men and politicians meeting to enjoy the food and scenery over a business lunch. At night the lights shine down into the water so that you can see straight to the pebbles on the bottom and the fish still darting along the shore.


It’s a short drive to get there from your villa at Just drive down the hill till you come to the Seraphine Road and see the airport runway straight ahead of you. On the left is the Red Cross building. Turn left and drive along the inlet, running along the airport runway: You pass the Ganters Bay inlet, and the Prime Minister’s country home. After that turn left again into the Mango Moon gym and you are at Coal Pot.
