Travelling to St. Lucia

Going to St. Lucia tomorrow for a week. Staying at the Bay Gardens Beach Resort.

Have a couple of questions:

Any restaurants on St. Lucia similar to Shakers in Barbados?

Point me to a convenient location for SIM card (1-2 GB of data and 25-50 minutes of voice on the island and the ability to call back to the US) either at Hewanorra Airport or near Rodney Bay Village (looks like the closest town to the hotel). Any difference between Digicel and LIME?

Is tap water safe to drink?

Looks like there is a private mini-bus system on St. Lucia similar to Barbados. Upon landing in St. Lucia, is it practical to take that private minivan from the Hewanorra Airport to Castries then either taxi to the hotel in Rodney Bay or jump on another minivan from Castries to get within walking distance to the hotel? Checking out of the hotel, is the reverse feasable using the private minivan to get to the Hewanorra Airport? Has anyone done this?

Failing that, has anyone shared a taxi with another couple at the airport coming in to go to the hotel and checking out of the hotel to go to the airport? I mention this as I see the taxi fare is a set price from 1-4 persons.

Thanks in advance.
