Returning after three years, Roots is still locally owned and operated. Grilled chicken or fish at noon time, ice cold Piton from open to close. Truly a St Lucian experience!

The guys that hang out around the roots bar smoked a lot of weed & always hassled us when we walked past. Not my kind of spot but if you want to experience ‘fun’ (that’s how they described themselves) locals have a drink or 2.More
