BY FAR the best meal we have had in a very long time. Mama Tilly is welcoming and so kind. The lobster is an absolute must, huge compared to any lobster you will find in England and 1/4 of the price. The food is extremely reasonably priced!! All meals come with salad, potato salad, local vegetables, rice and fried plantain for the whole table. All made by her fresh on the day. All 4 of us had lobster and she gave us a whole other one to take home for dinner. Rum punch was amazing value for money. Ignore the bad review below; if I’m Laborie there’s no where else I would eat, we will be going back most days while we are here. (Our photos don’t do it justice, this was after we ate half 😂)

Quite literally the best octopus I've ever eaten in my entire life. She marinates it in her green sauce and it was amazing. They also serve fried chicken, which was a great reprieve for my fiance and he loved it. :) (from 2016)

The owner is very charming and loveable. The fish was really good but we missed the lobster :( It is a very small restaurant so either reserve or come early. Try her little local spice rhum, delicious!

We ate there after reading such great reviews here. I have to disagree somewhat. She is nice, they are large portions, but I'm not sure mana tilly knows how to cook. Her cold salads were good, I'll give her that. The hush puppies were not corn bread, but bread crumb held together by fried fat. Good when hot, but very greasy the longer it sat. The lobster my husband got was at least 5 minutes overcooked, which I'm sure is why she gave him 3 pieces. Tough, chewy, and no salt, lemon, or butter to cover up how overdone they were. She kept forgetting my fish, after initially saying it would be just 3 minutes. She finally brought it out when we were almost done, so I said no thank you. She took it back, apologized, and then charged us for 2 lobster meals instead of a lobster and fish meal. When she finally brought the bill, we asked what it was in US $$, so she grabbed a calculator to figure it out. I thought it was high so I asked what the exchange was. She said 2.7 us to EC, but she did 2.5 because it was easier. She had a calculator, is it easier to hit the 5 button than the 7? I would not recommend the place based on our experience.

Visited Mama Tilly's twice during our stay in Laborie and the experience is exactly what you expect in a small St Lucian restaurant. First visit my Wife and I both had chicken which was lovely, with rice and hot sauce. When talking to Mama we asked her about Lobster which she cooked for us both on our second visit, which was excellent and very big! Prices are very reasonable, atmosphere is great and Mama's service is excellent. Rum punch was perfect.

Mama Tilly's restaurant is delicious, accommodating, and all around amazing! On Sunday's the island practices "stay in place" for 24hrs as a covid-19 restriction and Mama Tilly helped to ensure we had large and incredible meals during the lockdown as we were unable to leave our Airbnb. As long as you tell her a few hours ahead of time what you wish to eat, your wish will come true. Mama Tillys is the best and if you're passing through Laborie, stop by and grab a bite from her!

To start off, Mama Tilly is soooo loving and welcoming, as other reviews have said there is a reason so many cars stop by and say hello or people walk by and say hello- she is so well known in her neighborhood. We stopped by here on our last day right before heading to the airport to kill some time and have a good meal. We got to Mama’s around 1:45 and she explained that she usually doesn’t serve until 2:30 or 3 and that her helper called out for the day so not much was prepared yet. Nonetheless, she made us feel so welcomed. Provided us with her yummy bread and fish cakes as she prepared the grill and cooked our food. All I have to say is that is was so worth the hour wait. The price, the food portions, and most important the FOOD- all phenomenal and well worth your money. Easily the best meal I had during my entire stay at St. Lucia. All the resorts and restaurants give you small portions that are always lacking some kind of flavor, but not Mama Tilly. Not one single negative thing I can say about our experience here. Go enjoy some great food and even even better company at Mama’s :). Also ask for her special lemon lime juice!!!!! SO YUMMY and refreshing!!!

One of a handful of restaurants in Laborie, we came to Mama Tilly’s two times as we really liked it. Tilly is so friendly and welcoming and the food is tasty and traditional. If you are vegetarian it’s worth popping to tell her earlier in the day, so she can make you something, otherwise it’s fish or meat on the bbq. Good value for money. I’d definitely recommend it.

Mama Tilly is very welcoming and an interesting woman too. Our food was cooked on her BBQ by Mama Tilly and it was always delicious. Accompanied by seasonal veg and/or salad. . The rum punches are pretty good too. It's not salubrious at all but anyone who stays down south in the non-touristy area of Laborie won't mind that at all. We didn't. It's very affordable too. (We had come down south from the Cap Estate!). We came here twice and both times got chatting to like minded people over a drink, either before or after eating. The fish was divine!

You can't visit Laborie and not dine at Mama Tilly's. She is an Laborie institution - and a very lovely woman. Lobster, chicken and pork chops, with various salad/potato sides, were the main fare when we were there, but I'm told she can produce vegetarian food if you give her a bit of notice. Mama Tilly's is a small space so you can't fail to strike up a conversation with other diners. If in Laborie, you must go there!

It took me three tries to get a meal with Mama Tilly. First time she was full of foreigners at every table, not a place to sit. Second night a table was available, but all she had left to eat was pork (don't eat). Finally my last day she saw me walking by and asked if I'll be having lunch with her; she took my order and I came back 40 minutes later to eat an amazing fresh tuna meal with mac n' cheese, salad, plantains, and rice. Several locals came by to purchase items from her hot tray (fried chicken, bake, saltfish)

The best seafood I’ve ever had! Mama Tilly has the sweetest heart, she is so welcoming, and everything she made was impeccable. A must stop for the best food and authentic. The portions were generous and it was so much better than those stuff resorts who charge 5x as much for less. Get the rum punch! She claims it’s the best on the island and I’d have to agree :)

So I went here with a friend and they were so accommodating and welcoming. 2 fussy eaters she explained that there was a big event the next day so she had a limited food choice. She talked to us about likes/dislikes and allergies, we had chicken and fish with rice and salad, with 4 or 5 drinks came to about EC$100 (about £30 the alcohol made the majority of the bill ) the food was so tasty, cooked incredibly well and the hot sauce was so tasty (and hot!) We have an invite tomorrow and are seriously thinking about going back. A small place maybe 6 tables on a veranda but well worth the visit and the walk on the beautiful beach after was the icing on the cake!

Mama Tilly is something of an institution in Laborie. She seems to work tirelessly day-in day-out to keep her customers fed and happy. During our stay in Laborie, we kept coming back to eat her amazing lobster, lambi (conch), grilled chicken and mahi mahi, all served with with an appetising selection of vegetables. Her rum punch is also very good. Owing to her popularity, Mama Tilly’s does get full quite quickly, and seating is fairly limited, so be prepared to share your table with other guests. We made some new friends that way! Menus tend to vary according to the catch the fishermen land. Therefore, it’s a good idea to call round earlier in the day if you are hoping to eat at Mama Tilly’s that evening. You can then check what she has and ask her to keep back some of what you fancy.
