Saint Lucia is filled with culinary delights

Creole cuisine2 - Learn to cook like a 'Lucian'

Apart from the delicious chocolate, Saint Lucia also offers other culinary delights with influences from Europe, the Caribbean, West Africa and India. Why not learn to cook like a 'Lucian' with a number of classes available from Spices Cooking Studio, Cook Like a Lucian or Flavours of St Lucia.

Ladera Resort Dasheene Restaurant 04 - Unique dining experiences

Imagine, being served the catch of the day with a glass of wine whilst watching the sun setting over the majestic Piton Mountains. How about a private dining area in the Caribbean sea decorated in candles with a mini zip-line delivering chilled champagne to you and your loved one? These are just some of the many unique dining experiences you can enjoy on island. Also, do not miss the Friday night street parties in Gros Islet and Anse La Raye with its local food stalls plating up tasty BBQ chicken and bakes.
