Cool atmosphere and nice to watch people passing by. Really good drinks (that was just the thing we were looking for). Friendly service. But prices are high - ok, St.Barth is place where only rich stay more than eight hours!

Bar de L'Oubli is the kind of place you can spend all day - and we have! It's a perfectly lovely open air French hang out right in the center of the Gustavia. The breakfast is wonderful and not expensive considering that you are in St. Barths. The juices are fresh squeezed and delicious. The croissants are the real deal.... More

This is a wonderful casual open French cafe/bar in the center of Gustavia. Excellent people watching. Come alone, with your family or friends, or with your dog. All are welcome; locals, tourists, non smokers/smokers and lap tops and IPhones ( WiFi available). But bring Cash-Euros or US dollars. No Credit Cards. The staff will speak your language; French, English, Spanish,... More

Nothing compares to the famous corner bar in Gustavia, St Barths. At this wonderful Le Bar de L'Oubli the atmosphere is delightful, the staff loves their work and speak many languages and the drinks are fabulous. This is the spot to people watch. It is so much fun to meet friends, make new ones, grab some good food and relax.... More

On the street that fronts onto the harbour it is easily found. Forget about parking, preferably forget about driving. The wifi is a key feature with cruise ship guests and crew. Like most things in St Barth's it is not inexpensive.

Direct translation of L'Oubli- to forget. Other than the fact that the place is well situated within Gustavia, the chairs are uncomfortable, tables and floor were dirty and sticky and the wait staff less than friendly and helpful. Everyone is allowed to smoke in the restaurant and it was very difficult for others in our group to breathe and be... More

We took the ferry over for the day from St Maarten and stopped here twice because we enjoyed it so much! We stopped in the morning for breakfast, great coffees and croissants. For St Barths, it is quite economical and great atmosphere. After the day at the beach, we stopped for drinks waiting for the ferry. They actually put the... More

The place is well located. We found the food quite average, while the prices quite high (but within St Barth's standards). The super noisy Le Select bar is just a few steps away, so do not expect to have a calm conversation with friends there.

More of a bar atmosphere but the food is better than you would expect. The wait staff can get thinly spread at night but they are as attentive as they can be. If you are looking to save a bit of money, it's not a bad bet. Can't beat the location for people-watching.

Thank Mark_Gianfalla
