“Not friendly....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

The food was decent. The atmosphere left a lot to be desired. We were there in their slow season, and felt like we were in their way the entire time we were there. We couldn't wait to finish our meals and leave. If they don't have time for patrons, they should just close for the month. Just plain rude. No need for that, and we were overcharged.

“Quaint, open air dining overlooking Oyster Pond”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

Quai Quest, located on the French side of Oyster Pond, is a quaint venue that sits right on the harbor. We took the owner's recommendations and had the Rabbit and Lamb dishes. Both were excellent and very large portions. In fact, we had enough of each dish along with the remaining bread that we made a tasty breakout of the next morning while stuck on our balcony (yes, that's another story and review!)

That evening the owner was also the chef but made time to visit the tables and speak to guests. Our table was atop a large rock and it felt romantic, as if we were dining all alone. But the other guests were very friendly and we got lots of suggestions for our time on the island.

“Chef - we know you can do better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2013

Having visited this restaurant many times we decided to spend our last evening in Oyster Pond at Quai Ouest. We expected the usual high service and quality food but were so disappointed. Steak and fries was exactly that with no time spent on the usual presentation with salad or vegetables. The vegetarian pizza was weird with mashed up carrot and green beans.
Having just spent a most enjoyable day in St Barts we were too tired to make our comments known to the chef who we know very well.
We appreciate that every one has their off day but come on guys - we know you can do alot better.

“Better for atmosphere than food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2013

Eight people had 6 different dishes and quality varied tremendously. I liked my veal kidneys ,the mahi was torched, the pizzas were OK and the seafood special came bathed in mashed potatoes.
