“Excellent local dishes”
Reviewed 2 March 2010

This restaurant is very expensive but a great menu and wine lists. Parking at this restaurant requires some maneuver. The restaurant is associated with a local hotel. The fish selection is excellent and always fresh. Full coast dinner for 2 well be over $100US excluding alcohol but at is worth the visit.

“lunch not dinner”
Reviewed 29 October 2009

Went for lunch there January this year for my birthday ( we were staying overnight ) It was absolutely delicious and the service very good , so good we decided to have dinner there to , that was a mistake .
The setting outside was lovely but we were served by two pregnant waitresses who looked like they were going into labour any minute . The meal was average and the waitress had no knowledge of the wine on the wine list .
The dessert was particulary awful a coconut creme brulee which was disgusting . We were the last table in the restaurant and were made to feel uncomfortable as we were the last guests there . Totally different from the lunch experience .Would we go back , yes just for lunch not dinner .

“Terribly disappointing and very expensive.”
Reviewed 10 February 2009

Battimamzelle (not Battimanzelle) has both an indoor and outside garden restaurant. This was our second visit, and we returned because we liked the outside garden restaurant which is both pretty and romantic, although rather dark for reading menus. How disappointed we were. Both food and wine on the menu were not available, and the service, whilst friendly, was most unprofessional. I was asked if I wanted my pork 'medium or rare!' When it came it was tasteless. To be fair, my crab ravioli starter was delicious if not quite warm enough. My husband's fish was pretty ordinary (the original one he ordered was 'off'),and the vegetables including cassava (not what he had ordered) apparently were unpleasant. I have to agree with other local residents, this restaurant is not nearly as good as it was, and the staff need proper training.
We had two glasses of wine, and two courses, (no coffee or pudding) and the bill was horrendous. When you compare the quality of the food to other restaurants (ie Solimar, Chaud etc.,) Battimamzelle offers very poor value indeed.
