Fodor's Expert Review The Great House
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Elegant, gracious, and romantic, the Great House was reconstructed on the foundation of an original Cap Estate plantation house adjacent to Smugglers Cove Resort & Spa. The grandeur of those early days has been revived as well. The waitstaff wears traditional St. Lucian costumes. The chef adds a piquant creole touch to traditional French cuisine—with excellent results. The menu, which changes nightly, might include pumpkin-and-potato soup, local crab back with lime vinaigrette, sautéed Antillean shrimp in a creole sauce, and broiled sirloin with thyme butter and sweet-potato chips. Cocktails at the open-air bar are especially enjoyable at sunset. The Derek Walcott Theatre is next door.
