Why is only a single restaurant on St-Pierre reviewed? I recently ate at both the L'Atelier Gourmand and the (much better) Le Feu de Braise.

How can we add these listings to TripAdvisor's list of St-Pierre restaurants?

St-Pierre is very, very quiet. We stayed there - last summer - for two nights and, though we very much enjoyed it, found it charming, and enjoyed chatting with the locals, we realized that one would quickly run out of things to see and do. It's like a small French village, on a rock, in the middle of the ocean, but with (thanks to investments and spending from France, and visiting bureaucrats from Paris and Brussels) a lot of money "sloshing" around. And what there IS to see gets very little attention. Visitors from Canada (i.e. Newfoundland) tend to stay for the day only, buy wine and cheese and return home. There is a fascinating museum (with no outside identifying signage) that had absolutely no visitors when we were there. Many St-Pierrois (?) do their shopping in Canada: The Wal-Mart just outside Point-Fortune has many SPM license plates in the parking lot. I can only imagine what the place must be like in the winter months: We also met a number of locals who leave the islands for the winter (in one case to spend Dec-Mar with cousins in California).

No, the largest hotel is probably the Hotel Robert -- 18 rooms on the waterfront: http://www.hotelrobert.com/ Certainly the best place to stay is the boutique hotel, Nuits St-Pierre (only 4 rooms, but quite luxurious): http://nuitssaintpierre.com/en. I'm afraid you probably will have trouble finding work: The government seems to be the largest single employer. And, if you are used to a Caribbean lifestyle, you will find SPM VERY different: More like a small village in Brittany than anything else (but with worse weather in the wintertime!) Sorry. Are you related, by any chance, to François?

I have sent a message to Tripadvisor. St Pierre is actually a Province of France even though it is just off the Newfoundland Coast.. My restaurant wasn't listed under Saint Pierre & Miquelon but under France. Most hotels are probably there but tripadvisor seems confused as to whether it is categorized under France or Saint Pierre & Miquelon.
