Under new management, the place has been revamped and is now more cozy . Still offering great sea food fare, plus other local favorites like goat and guinea hen. New on the menu is the sarcelle grillé (wild duck) which is delish. Friday and saturday evening boost a band . Try also the "trempé" at the bar. You can eat... More

Absolutely charming place, amazing fish and lobster of great value, but music is way too loud. Otherwise, perfect!

Friends recommended the place. I had the grilled fish. Very good. It was on a Monday night. Not too crowded.

From the moment I arrived, I felt welcomed. Talking to the waiter, I said I wanted the most Haitian thing I could, since I wouldn't be in town long. He recommended the "Creole Fish." It took awhile to come out, but they brought me bread and I had my phone. (I'm in Haiti alone for work, so this was a... More

I love the atmosphere of this place. You step down the hill into this little seating area outside. They have a bar inside the building but it's still open. I had the lobster and cod fritters with friends. The food was amazing, service was great and the prices were not bad (more than what I expected, but again..not bad). I'm... More

Overall a good restaurant and one I will try again. It seems popular with the well-to-do Haitian crowd, and was busy during my Saturday night visit. Lighting was a bit low and there wasn't much ambiance on the outdoor terrace. I started with a complementary fried acra appetizer which was a bit too salty. The seafood soup (soupe des pecheurs)...

It's a bit overpriced, but, in Pétionville, all the places where you can sit comfortably and enjoy a good meal are overpriced, this one is not worse than the others. The food is good -- just go for the grilled fish, it's excellent -- and the clientele is more diverse than in some of the other restaurants that seem to... More

The place was charming. Located in the open "cellar" and outdoor section with a grill in the center. The food was excellent especially the grilled fish. We had it many times and always first class. Service was exceptional.

It's a great place to eat but overpriced. I ordered a big fish but it wasn't that big. It was very good.
