I've vacationed in St. Lucia every year since retiring to the creative life. Upon arrival, even before unpacking my bags, the very first thing I do is make a dinner reservation at The Big Chef to celebrate my birthday. My vacation would simply not be complete without this extrodinary culinary experience. The maitre d runs a tight ship; the meal prep and presentation are always 5-star amazing!

Great staff and a shout out to June, Wendy and superb violinist Michael Fletcher. We had a great evening. However, pizzas not as good as before as the base not quite right. The Don pizza was sparse regarding the meet content and it was expensive. My husbands Margarita was half full of ice and very watered down. Elenas and Harbor Club and Amici much better for pizza. That said the staff worked hard and great ambience.

About the restaurant
In 1958 Chico was the hotel’s speakeasy, a cozy secluded lounge hidden from the lobby. In fact, Chico Cabaret was originally designed and named after a famous speakeasy in Manhattan. It is our intention to recreate that era with an emphasis on curated live entertainment where seasoned performers are featured, be it burlesque, DJs, live musicians and singers or comedy.


$45 minimum consumption per person
Sushi and Tapas available from Monday to Sunday starting at 5:00pm.

The place that always feels like home ! The absolute best Sushi will be found here, coupled with respectable libations. The entertainment and people watching are the best part. Absolute must visit in Isla Verde

Ponce
About the restaurant
Hard Rock Cafe Ponce is about to set the Aloft Hotel on fire with our signature style and rock and roll cuisine. Located in the heart of the south area of Puerto Rico, our cafe in the “pearl of the South” has enough room for you and over 350 of your best friends in over 12,500 square feet of party space. Boasting more than 300 years of history, the city of Ponce is known as “Ciudad Señorial” or the Majestic or Noble City. As a huge part of Ponce, we’re also close to the action, only 0.2 miles from University of Puerto Rico, 0.5 from Plaza del Caribe Mall, and 5 miles from Mercedita Airport. This historic city just got a culinary upgrade! Just one bite of our world-famous Legendary® Burger and you’ll see what fans of our classic cuisine have been clamoring for since we first began slinging burgers. If salad or mac and cheese is more your speed, we have you covered as well. No matter what you order, wash everything down with a few local beers or a hand-crafted cocktail or two.

That was my first time and we love it. Very good food, the live music was great and put a very good rock atmosphere. The service was great also. Definitely I’ll comeback soon.

Food was good (not excellent), taking into consideration that the pasta is a very low-cost food, the price was "ok". And the taste was "ok" too. Place very pretty, but the level of the noise was a little bit loud (since the place is not that big).

Had a very good time. Food quality is excellent, my husband said it’s the best lamb chops he’s ever had. The DJ was the best on the island!

About the restaurant
Carli's Fine Bistro & Piano located in the heart of historic Old San Juan Puerto Rico was born on December 27, 1998, as a place where locals and international patrons could gather to enjoy a unique live musical and fine dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere.

Carli’s excels in the art of fine dining and live jazz entertainment, without sacrificing the comfort of casual elegance and competitive pricing. Live music begins nightly.

Had to ask for the check three times but that aside we had a nice time. Live music was great. Food was nice. Beers were cold.
