The hostess sat us at the perfect table for two because both of us faced the ocean. Cocktails were amazing, and the food was delicious. I ordered grilled octopus, husband had chicken skewers. Both were outstanding, I recommend highly. The staff was friendly, fast & accommodating to the crowds of people pushing to get in for lunch. Will return to Shellona!

Enjoyed a great lunch here, with a great view. Food was amazing with great drinks. My wife had the red snapper which was delish, and I had a burger which was great as well.

My new favorite on my favorite paradise island - this is just fabulous and have similar scene as Eden Rock in a more bohemian Chic way. It's a scene at lunch and in my opinion, a must right now!! The shells that gave the name to shell beach are more or less gone but still a great bay to swim off the lunch... the food is really great and offers something new in St Barths. Book it, you won't get disappointed!!!

As it rained a lot in the morning, the lower section of the restaurant which is closest to the beach was closed, so we had to eat upstairs. A brief visit tot he beach proved that yes indeed it is all shells. At first they did not want to give our party of 3 a table located closest to the view, as those were supposedly available only for parties of 4, even if most of these tables were empty, but a bit of my side eye and asking to speak to the manager resolved that issue. Once seated, the service was spotty. I love instagramming my travel food for memories sake, but I soon noticed that my ceramic plates were all chipped in several places - not sure if this was on purpose for that shabby - chique look, or not. I scrapped the pictures, and so by now I forgot what we ate. Maybe everyone was a bit off because of the weather. Paid 107 euros (165 canadian dollars) for lunch. Valet parking was 15 euros, but we scored a free space on the road up a hill. Maybe the rain has one positive effect :)) .
