The first time on Martinique that fish was'nt just standard. The vivaneau was really deliciuos with perfectly arranged and designed sidedishes. Very nice service staff, competent, helpful and not pushing. You sit on a nice terrace with seaview, on weekends full of locals, which emphasizes the quality

This is one of the most upscale restaurants on the beach. They specialize in seafood and do a great mixed plate. I had a lobster & shrimp salad; perfect. Dinners can be pricey but service is worthwhile.

Went there our first evening. It had a limited choice but it was tasty. We had the salads and they were good. Caution, don't order the house wine, its terrible, probably because its been open to long. Stick with the local beer.

The restaurant was right next to our hotel. We ate here twice during our trip. Over both times, we had lamb, beef fillet, crustacean ravioli, and red snapper. All of the food was cooked to perfection and not too expensive. It was typical price for the island. The desert was amazing as well.

Pretty spot on a veranda over looking the bay. Pleasant wait staff. Not wild about the food as it seemed the same as we found in less touted places. Local chef widely admired.

We were told this place was started by a chef from Paris. Highly recommend the seafood ravioli and above all the conch salad!! Only one server. They take credit cards.

Good quality food. Lamb chops were on point, languste also was good. Decent sides. Really nice setting right on the beach. Water jn plastic bottles but that seems the standard in martinique. Staff was decent. Prices on the higher side but still reasonable.

We had an excellent dinner at Pignon last week. The service was a little bit slow, even for Martinique, but the food was delicious so it was worth it! We had boudin, shrimp accras, chatrou fricassee and grilled conch. A very nice bottle of Provence rose rounded up our meal. As it was night time, we were not able to... More

Martinique is a relatively simple island, not particularly targeted towards tourism, therefore one has to lower service and menu expectations a little. With this in mind, this is one of the better restaurants in this area. Cuisine is Creole, and very well presented with a reasonable choice of Martinique specials within that range. The food is good, quality is excellent... More

First- it is on the beach! The place is very clean and appealing. The food was very good, 2 entrees, 2 drinks and 2 desserts- about 75 euros. The ice cream is amazing. Has a great open ambience.
