Where to Eat in St. Lucia: Waterfront De Belle View Creole Restaurant

Creole Breakfast on a colorful table cloth at De Belle View

Some Caribbean restaurants are so atmospheric, they are worth visiting based on that alone. But when my driver in St. Lucia said his favorite place to eat in Soufriere was De Belle View Creole Restaurant, I knew I had to try it. De Belle View is open for breakfast, and we came after wandering around the local Soufriere market on a Saturday morning.

Morning at De Belle View Creole Restaurant

Breakfast isn’t my favorite meal, and I don’t think it is De Belle View Creole Restaurant’s strongest. But it was the time I had available so I checked it out. The restaurant’s interior is pure St. Lucian– and I loved it.

We were the first customers of the day at De Belle View

Located on the second story, with open slatted windows and fans circulating the air, De Belle View felt very authentic and catered to a mix of locals and tourists.

The typical Creole breakfast

My husband ordered the creole breakfast– which included salted mackerel and vegetables cooked in creole spices and was served with bread and cocoa tea.

Cocoa tea, which tastes like unsweetened hot chocolate, is the local breakfast drink and rather enjoyable. It’s definitely worth trying. St. Lucia grows a lot of cocoa (so much that they export to American chocolate companies). Tasting how the locals enjoy it was a real treat.

If I were coming to St. Lucia, I’d try this place for lunch instead of breakfast, since the menu options and Creole-ness are limited during the morning hours.
