Rainforest Hideaway, Marigot Bay
Tel: 758 286 0511
Concierge.com's insider take:
A three-minute boat ride across the placid waters of Marigot Bay leads to a private dock set among the mangroves. If it's evening, a man with a flashlight will await you, and in a scene reminiscent of The Phantom of the Opera, will guide you to the Champagne bar, where you can enjoy an aperitif at the water's edge before dinner. Start with locally caught mahi mahi; clean the palate with coconut, lime, and ginger sorbet; and then move on to the perfectly cooked risotto, which, for the Caribbean, is almost as much of a surprise as finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Service is equally flawless in what is one of St. Lucia's finest restaurants.
Open Wednesdays through Mondays, from 6 pm.
