The only thing saving this from a two star review is the ravioli appetizer which was small for the $$$ but really good. Otherwise the "specialty" beef dish was comparable to medallions of stew meat... Completely overcooked covered in a dark brown gravy. Even the wine recommended was a disappointment. Three other diners at the table ordered fish, a vegetarian... More

So our food was just beyond fantastic. I had the foie gras with duck and my husband had the flank steak with blue cheese reduction. It was perfectly cooked and the sauces were everything I hoped the French would deliver. The restaurant is reasonable considering how expensive the island is and we regret not going here twice- we gave the... More

Definitely the best on the island with the hiltons main restaurant close behind. Delicious wine! Amazing honey duck, duck leg, lobster ravioli and prawns and scallops! The staff are very polite and friendly and the atmosphere is very nice. Kind of feels like you are sitting in the inside of a wooden ship. It's worth the taxi from the Hilton... More

Wow this is a true treasure! Fabulous French dining at its best for reasonable cost! We had a delicious salad that we shared to start. My husband had the signature lobster ravioli and it was worth every rave possible. I had the shrimp and scallops. The sauce was nothing short of perfect! Light and so flavorful! We had the eclair...

Food was really good, a little expensive but knew that going in. We tried a variety of the food and found it all good. A quiet quaint place

Delicious food. Great vanilla sauce on many items, makes average fish amazing. Late dining is popular here, you'll be dining alone if you reserve before 7PM

My husband and I were recommended this restaurant by the Intercontinental- we made a reservation and were picked up for dinner. The ambiance was perfect and the food was wonderful (especially compared to the food at some of the other restaurants we visited on that side of the island!!). I had the dumpling appetizer, mahi-mahi for an entree, and the... More
