Great atmosphere

We made a reservation for this restaurant for our last night. The atmosphere is great - very cozy and relaxing. They had an English menu, which our party appreciated. The food was good. I had the lamb and it was tender with a nice sauce. With drinks the bill ended up being a little high, but the... read more

The food was fantasic- the fish tasted very fresh and the sauces were excellent. The owner was also there and was very helpful and friendly. He clearly cared about the quality of the food and the experience. We also really enjoyed the ambiance- it had a cozy warm feel, without being dark or isolated. Definitely check it out if you...

We stumbled upon this place our first night on the island and had a tasty and memorable dinner. My 7 friends and I received excellent service and a wonderful meal. I wish we could have made it back before leaving. Thanks for an awesome experience.

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

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
