The Mango Tree Restaurant at Stonefield Estate

The Mango Tree Restaurant at Stonefield Estate


Mango Tree restaurant is at Stonefield Estate in Soufrière, St. Lucia. That sounds like a simple thing, but when you factor in that Stonefield looks straight at Petit Piton of the iconic twin peaks (The Pitons) fame of St. Lucia, then you begin to imagine just how special this place is.


The restaurant is named for this “Julie” mango tree which stands against a view of the Caribbean sea as if to say to Petit Piton, “think you’re the only thing special here?”


Stonefield Estate is set in many acres of the most verdant and fertile land anywhere on earth. Naturally (and by that I mean both “as you would expect” and “as nature intended”) there is an amazing organic kitchen garden which supplies many of the restaurant’s fresh produce and herbs. The gardener is a rasta man call “Natty well” (Natural) and he uses no chemicals of any sort and never has.

The ethos of Mango Tree restaurant is to celebrate local food and fresh produce in an innovative way. There is no need for over-stylised food here. It reflects its surroundings. The interior of the restaurant is simple and comfortable because you sit with an explosion of beauty and nature all around you. Locally woven placemats, fresh flowers from their garden, soft local music…….the feng shui just soothes and oozes the best of St. Lucia.


Can you imagine being perched so high above the azure blue of the Caribbean sea, with the powerful force of beauty of Petit Piton so close you feel the urge to open your arms wide and sing “The hills are alive?” I’m actually not kidding……Oh, and just in case you wondered, Mango Tree was awarded the certificate of excellence in 2016 by TripAdvisor!!!

    I remember Stonefield from childhood as a magical place, and it seems that hasn’t changed. Your photos of the different meals had me drooling! I really dislike when hotels cater their food to the taste of the visitors, so I especially love that the Mango Tree menu has its focus on celebrating local food. Perfect!
