We sat out on their wonderful terrace overlooking the blue waters. With a view like this we might not have cared so much about the food but the food was as good as the view. I had the prawns with farfalle. The sauce was so rich and delicious, I have a hard time to describe it. I think this may... More

Last friday we really had an excellent evening at Le Poivrier! The food was excellent and the plates looked like paintings. But most important of all: we felt very welcome!

This was French fine dining at its best. We thoroughly enjoyed every item placed before us. The grapefruit and orange-infused peppercorns greatly enhanced our meal, and the apple dessert was divine. We loved eating here and recommend it to all.

There is some seating in the restaurant that overlooks... More

A waterfront gourmet restaurant near the port. Very Romantic! Good food! Good Service. GREAT Baba au Rhum! It comes with diced fruit and an additional little glass of rum.

We were delighted to find this place, it is right on the water in town. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere and excellent fresh food. We started with a vegetable terrine with eggplant, roasted peppers and onions served with an excellent basil sauce . Then I had the dorado which was moist , fresh and flavorful . My husband had the... More

It's on the water and has a nice relaxed setting. The owner welcomed us and was very gracious. The trip to Guadeloupe was spur of the moment and we had not brushed up on our French language skills. The host interpreted for us!!
