The food was very good, creative but successful. Service was friendly, and fairly prompt (for the island) at first. Dessert, however, took ages--very slow even for Guadeloupe. The place is small, with a very nice atmosphere near the marina. The menu is small, but interesting. Prices are a bit on the high side but not outrageous for the quality. Recommended... More

It was Saturday night and we walked by and managed to secure a table even though we did not have a reservation. It took 30 minutes before we received our water and wine but we were patient. Once the food arrived, our fish de jour was lovely and the bottle of Sancere pleasing too. Service was very slow but I... More

Au Widdy's is perhaps the only fine-dining establishment on the Marina. Small and popular, reservations are essential. Serving local ingredients with a French flair. Portions are generous and the food quite good. Prices are a bit higher than other Marina establishments (perhaps 100 Euros for a dinner for two with wine). Some dishes were ambitious, but fell a bit short... More

Walking around the Saint Francois Marina and saw the blowing curtains and we thought we should see if we could get in. They had one table not reserved. A small intimate restaurant with interesting decor, good service, a reasonable selection of wines by the glass and very tasty local food. Truly enjoyed it there and recommend

The people working at Au Widdy`s are friendly and forthcoming, they offer good service. We both got good mojitos, one regular one and one without alcohol. They were both nice. Unfortunately the food was not so impressive. The samosas we got as a starter were decent, but not more. The main course was the most disappointing, It was a fish... More

Our dinner at this very small harbor restaurant was one of great promise and fair delivery. The open kitchen exhibited enthusiastic and creative conversion of ingredients into dishes. The wait staff were attentive, helpful and timely. Still, somewhere between ordering and the delivery of the plates, the passion so evident in the kitchen was diminished. The evening began well with... More

My wife and i visited on November 20th, our waitress spoke English and was very pleasant. Had the best Mojito I've ever tasted and the food was magnificent! It was so good we visited again the next night! The cooks also were fans of the tv show Scandal! Loved this place!
