Delicious food, great ambiance

This is one of the best restaurants in Saint-Francois. The food is delicious with a variety of menu choices for all tastes. Excellent wine cellar. The service is friendly and attentive. Definitely expensive, but well worth the price.

I came to this restaurant twice: the first time with two friends of mine which introduced me to this nice place, the second with my wife: needless to say, the first time was enough to convince me to come back! The place is nice and warm, a good mix between a french bistro and a caribbean restaurant. The personnel is... More

During our two week holiday in Saint Francois, we ate here twice, the food is fantastic, full of flavour and great combinations of food! Their is a extensive wine list and the owner is very knowledgable about the wine! The owners we're very welcoming and the young waitress worked very hard too! We spoke very limited French, but the staff... More

We visit this restaurant for the second time and I think this is the best place in St Francois and probably the best wine list in Guadeloupe (and not too pricy). We come back next year. Family from Sweden.

This was by far and away the best restaurant we have eaten at in Guadeloupe, and in fact is one of the best restaurants we've ever eaten at in any country! Everything served was delicious, fresh, and perfectly cooked. The staff were attentive and friendly, and the surroundings very pleasant. It couldn't have been better. Don't hesitate to give this...

If you only eat out in one restaurant in Guadeloupe, then this is the one to choose. Le Mabouya dans le Bouteille is in a maze of streets just off the Marina in Saint Francois yet it is a well used street with a few other eating places, so not hard to find. It is an attractive place, we sat... More

Our local friends recommended the restaurant for the knowledge of the owner, the quality of the food and especially the wine selection. In June, when tourists are few and far between and restaurants often are empty, we enjoyed the evening special, grilled calves liver with delicious sides of veggies. (Seafood is the principle focus of the restaurant and what dishes... More

Can't remember details, just rember that the people have been very very friendly and that they have known what they did. Everyone of them did his job very well. Excellent food, drinks and service. Really interesting "taste explosions" during that dinner. The knowledge about wine and the wines can not be better. :)

We were a group of 4 person which stayed for one week in an appartment in Saint Francois and our local contact person who also works in this restaurant's kitchen recommended us this restaurant. We were the first guest in the evening and therefore got a table without reservations. It took not long and all tables were taken so it... More
