“Don't pass up a chance to go here!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

So, we were staying on Peter Island and decided to take a ferry across to Tortola for a change of scenery. Luckily, Rimple the Food and Beverage Director at the Peter Island Resort had told us about this place. Set in the middle of nowhere (small shopping center) and a taxi ride away from the main part of the shopping area and where cruise ships dock, this is an oasis for a wonderful French deli meal.
Great selection of cheeses and meats and you can get them to custom make your sandwich (based on your selection of cheeses and meats) on, oh so delicious, home baked bread. Then add in your choice of French wine that they sell and you have your perfect lunch!! And leave room for their luscious selction of home made pastries. Wanted to take some of their French bread back with us but feared it would not hold up to the weather and boat ride back but so craved it!!

A slice of heaven and who would have ever thought that in Tortola, we would be enjoying a fine lunch in a French cafe!. Worth the taxi ride over.

We are glad you took the time to come see us on your one day hop to Tortola. Thank you for your positive review. Rest assured that the breads and pastries do survive the 20 minute boat ride back to Peter Island, for the future. We look forward to having you again on your next visit to the British Virgin Islands!

“best omelette ever”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

you would never expect to find this place on a tropical island, it's a bit of paris and new york on tortola. it's a combo deli and restaurant with the deli have a very large selection of meats, cheeses, breads and other good stuff. their wine selection is very good and reasonably priced. the restaurant part of the operation is much smaller in scale but none the less in excellence. i had the best omelette there one morning. naturally, it was done the french way; soft, creamy and simple. i live on another island but every time i go to tortola i make sure i have time to stop in and enjoy the delights of paris in the tropics.

This little French Deli is such a surprise.. Cheeses you won't find anywhere else on the island, great yogurt, good wine, and deserts and breads that will make you forget your diet. Also, have very nice light healthy lunches.

“Nice deli and bakery”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

We bought very nice bread and cold cuts and cheese for a picnic and for a dinner in our hotel room. It was a little tricky to find, but we managed to get there. I would definitely recommend it if you want to make sandwiches or have some nice wine and cheese.,
