This place has sat at or near the top of the list of Bequia restaurants on TripAdvisor for years. Despite that fact, we skipped it during our first few trips to Bequia. Now that I've been there, I'm sorry we did. The thought of french food in a tropical environment... it's not what we were looking for. But a friend brought us there for lunch and promised we'd get a great meal. He was right. The menu is a great blend of local and French cuisine, with most of the entrees involving lobster. The seared tuna sandwich and the lobster BLT were both amazing. Also, one of the better rotis we had on the island (and we had more than a few!) If we had the time, we would have returned just for a chance to sample some of the other items on the menu. The view is lovely (though not one of the best), and mosquitoes were minimal (my wife is like chocolate for mosquitoes). The service - while friendly and efficient - was quite annoying, though. Our conversations were continually interrupted by a server looking to fill our water glasses. Don't get me wrong - I love an attentive waitstaff... but you don't need to announce your intentions to fill a water glass. Just fill it. Maybe we got a rookie waitress. It's hardly a complaint worth mentioning.

We liked this restaurant so much we came back a second time in 3 days. A real foodies place - freshest lobster, great service and all overseen by Jacques, who is a charming host. The lobster flambé in dark rum is exceptional, great wine list and lovely view over the harbour (and a cool breeze). It's not city sophistication, but great food in a nice location and friendly service. Well worth booking in advance.

We ordered tuna sashimi that
Melted in the mouth and fresh lobster .. So fresh we heard its death throws!! Cooked perfectly. I think the waiting staff should have advised us to skip the sides we ordered that did not go with our lobster, And the wine wasn't as good as it's price tag. I should have had another melon twister cocktail which was lovely. All in all a nice meal . The staff are very sweet and welcoming and the view over the bay quite pretty.

Lobster done several ways as well as fish and the usual Caribbean chicken dishes. The lobster was very good and they put an extra half on my plate because they said the lobster was small. Nice spot by the bay. Good service.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal so much that we return the next night before leaving Bequia the next day. We highly recommend this Restaurant which is the only one the have live lobsters on site.
