A Gas­tropub with a View

Tropical Traveller Magazine - - RESTAURANTREVIEWS -

Water­front din­ing in Saint Lu­cia is no more charm­ingly lo­cated than at Bo­sun's, a cosy gas­tropub with nau­ti­cal themes and an ex­pan­sive view of the click­ing masts of Rod­ney Bay Ma­rina's moored yachts.

A long­time favourite of lo­cal and vis­it­ing sailors, the first floor bar and restau­rant has a spa­cious ve­ran­dah out­side, and a very popular pool ta­ble inside, mak­ing it a great place for sun­down­ers and a game, fol­lowed by din­ner and a sur­pris­ingly unique menu—Thai!

Not that Bo­sun's is only a Thai restau­rant; for break­fast there’s a great choice in­clud­ing ev­ery­one’s favourite lo­cal “salt­fish, bakes and co­coa tea” or if you’re han­ker­ing after a great fry up washed down with pip­ing hot Lavazza cof­fee, you’re in the right place.

For lunch a hearty menu varies daily, with Lu­cian sta­ples like stewed chicken and grilled fish with all the tasty sides we love on the is­land. But in the evening the chef fires up the wok and stirs up au­then­tic Thai food with an ex­pe­ri­enced hand and a lit­tle Lu­cian flair.

From clas­sic green curry to pi­quant tamarind mahi mahi, those with a taste for heat and Asian flavours will not be dis­ap­pointed, and more than likely will con­sider Bo­sun’s to be a hid­den trea­sure. Be sure to call ahead and con­firm, es­pe­cially if you’re bring­ing a larger group – noth­ing’s too much trou­ble, but even the chef needs a day off some­times!

With icy cold beers and a cock­tail list to hit the right spot what­ever the time, a friendly crowd of lo­cals, yachties and fans of the wa­ter­side hot spot and warm, pro­fes­sional, ser­vice from owner Pearl and her friendly team, there’s some­thing for ev­ery­one at Bo­sun’s. Head for Rod­ney Bay Ma­rina and find out why it’s one of the north’s favourite lim­ing spots.

Bo­sun’s is open from 8am un­til 11pm ev­ery day. Call 458 4190 or email bo­suns,bar.bistro@hot­ for more in­for­ma­tion and reser­va­tions.
