Lunch at Ladera is a must when visiting St Lucia for at least two reasons. First, the place is located just between the Pythons, the two landmark peaks, so the view of them with the sea in between is simply marvellous. Second, the food is Creole with just a bit of fusion, so there will be tasty grilled chicken and fish, with a very special homemade barbecue sauce, rice and beans, pumpkin pie and mac cheese. Natural juices come with sugar syrup – lovely. But be alert: local birds might be eager to claim their share of your delicious platter!
There is not much to improve at Ladera and even pricing is pretty reasonable considering the location & quality, especially when compared to comparable options in the north of the island.
