Had lunch here with a group of friends and everyone was very happy with their food. The accras were the best I had on this trip and the salade gourmande was phenomenal. Service was also excellent and the setting gorgeous.

Had a nice quiet family dinner here and had a wonderful experience, the chef was delightful, staff were friendly and very accommodating to our needs, the waiting time between meals was just right and the food was delicious. We had 3 courses each, water and wine and the bill was nothing more than what you would pick up at a... More

Good food in a lovely location just off the main road - we ate in the courtyard garden behind the restaurant. Fish and meat dishes were well cooked and well presented. As a vegetarian I had an interesting salad with vegetables to accompany - thank you to the chef for taking the time to talk through the options. Well work... More

Definitely within the top ten meals that I have ever had. As a seafood lover this is a little piece of paradise and I’m very pleased we spotted this place and booked a table for dinner in the evening. It is a popular restaurant, so if you want a seat in the outside area (back of restaurant) then it’s best... More

We were cruising with friends on a catamaran and tied up at The Saints Island to discover a bit of Terre de Haut. This restaurant had been recommended but looked a bit locked up and bleak in late afternoon. When we returned in the evening, the doors were open to reveal a very stylish rustic dining room with a splendid... More

Approaching the picture-perfect harbor of Terre de Haut is a sublime experience. Once on land, there are many dining options in this small town. We had a very pleasant luncheon in Au bon vivre, a lovely restaurant with a backyard patio (where we sat). A trio of different fish dishes was the perfect starter - each preparation brought out the... More

We decided to go here for lunch on a Monday as I had seen it featured in the Guadeloupe tourism videos produced for YouTube (with model/actor Willy Monfret). It was absolutely delicious. We went for the 22E meal of three courses - we had the fish duo and the smoked fish on toast as the appetizers and both were excellent.... More

We visit here every time we are in Les Saintes (about twice a year). This most recent trip we have the triple decker stack of filet, veal and foie gras. It was truly amazing. The lamb and mashed potatoes are also excellent. The foie gras app is also classic french style. It's a quiet atmosphere, it doesn't have a water... More
