Ate here after a full day of fun-in-the-sun. Had traditional French escargot and a delightful duck salad for starters, which were so huge we could barely finish our entrees. But we gave it a go with a seafood Creole platter, red snapper, and scallops. Very original sides accompanied these mains: blood sausage, white sausage, sautéed leeks, scalloped zucchini, stuffed christophene... More

This is an intimate venue tucked away on a beach off Marigot bay. Laurent, the proprietor, puts together a good menu. But, the entertainment is over the top! Great place to visit, rest on the beach with a chilled bottle of vin rose and roasted camombere with toast AND fantastic music, dancing and comradery. Not to be missed. I shall... More

A long overdue review of a casual lunch spot visited back in feb/2016. On a whim we drove in for a quick bite one afternoon on our way back to our villa. The immaculate patio behind the restaurant was set right on the beach with a view that was just breathtaking. The menu was equally delish … between our group... More

Good local cuisine. Reservations are not required. Casual dining. Also open for lunch. All tables are outdoor. Plan to stay for a while as service is slow. All meals are made to order. The desserts are very good.

We had vegetarian springrolls which were AMAZING as well as pasta provencial which was a huge bowl of pasta (had to take pasta because the chef wouldnt make a simple request of rice... More

Situated on the waters edge on Nettle Bay this restaurant had a good menu with daily specials and a small but good wine list. The service was not over fussy and responsive to our needs. In the course of a two week holiday we went back twice. Suggest you book and ask for a table outside, our last night we... More

Our group of 14 was not disappointed. We all had a great meal with excellent service. We would go back again if near there.

We went on a particularly windy day so we sat inside. We both got the fried shrimp appetizer which came with a good sauce and we both ordered French onion soup for lunch. It's probably the best French onion soup we've had on the island in the 2 weeks we've been here. The 2 servers were taken care of the... More

In all fairness the staff was short handed that night. The two women servers handled about 70 customers during our visit. The food was excellent, but the wait and OVERWORKED staff didn't help our situation. The Bartender was definitely an issue with our group...our first round of beverages lacked some real TLC. My Presidente beer was near the end of... More

The restaurant has an old feel to it but it's very cozy and the food and service are excellent. Best fish I ate in my trip and the passion fruit dessert was absolutely amazing the best I ever had. Would definitely be back
