What a find. Our catamaran captain suggested this and many review sites had overlooked it. Great French menu with the largest and best wine list I saw on the trip. Roast lamb for two is incredible if the special is on the menu.

Love, love love it here. The beach at the resort is private and lovely. Combining the best Sunday brunch on the island with a visit to the private beach with the comfortable lounge chairs and palapas is a favorite activity for locals and visitors alike.

Unfortunately we weren't aware of this beautiful resort and stayed elsewhere but did enjoy a fantastic Sunday Brunch with an incredible view from our table.

We didn't stay here but ate at the resort restaurant. The service was great and the food even better. I can't decide if Frenchman's or the Bananakeet had better food - both remarkable! Best we encountered on the island.

One of the more formal restaurant/resort's on the island. Beautiful outdoor restaurant...not your normal menu....you may find Duck or Escargot or some French dish you may have to ask for an interpretation....open Tues-Sat for Dinner and Sunday Brunch. A little pricier than most, but you won't be disappointed.

We stopped by for a swim at their beach (actually a little lagoon) last week while bareboat chartering. But we will be returning for our 4th week-long stay at the end of February. This small resort, 9 cottages, offers spectacular views of Sir Francis Drake Channel, the quiet little beach with comfortable chaises and a few cabanas, a great restaurant,... More

We went over just to check out what Frenchmans cay was all about... Tourists shopping in cute shops, really beautiful marina, bars and restaurants....really sweet if that's what you like..not our style, but pretty if it's yours.

I came to the island by sailboat, where I got everything I needed in a short time, output documents, shopping for boat ride, internet and a cold beer with good food .. Good waypoint.

A beautiful drive along the southern side of the island to Frenchman's Cay. We boarded a sailing boat for our trip to Jost van Dyke at Soper's Hole (Pusser's Wharf) as well as catching the ferry to St John's on another day. An interesting place to visit and walk around. I wouldn't stay there though unless you wish to boat... More

I had the opportunity to visit Frenchman's Cay a number of times, as I was staying on the west end of the island. It's a nice place to spend a few hours, with various shops and restaurants, along with Soper's Hole Marina nearby. Unless you are doing something specific in Frenchman's, there isn't much to see just by wandering about,... More
