The Boucaniers has always been our favourite place in Gustavia for lunch or just drinks by the waterfront. As it was one of the few places open in Gustavia in September we twice stopped by there for lunch. The menu was more limited than previously ( not sure if this is a permanent change or just for the low season... More

Stopped before lunch for a drink, and stayed for the beef Kabob special, was tasty and tender, prices above average, it's St Barths. Would have given it a higher review except for having to move to get out of the smoking stench, it is a French island what can you expect, someday,they will get out of the 1970's and realize... More

This is a great stop on the walk to shell beach. I made the stop here after going to the beach. Had some delicious ice cream. The service was ok. The menu isn't very lengthy. Still a great stop for the views.

We stopped here for drinks and sat outside facing the city and the bay. They had really good mojitos, bellini's and sandwiches. The staff was nice and attentive. The food was good. They takes euros here, but convert to dollars for you on the check for free.

Went back here April 2013 after visiting a year ago - different menu, different vibe, should have left but didn't - menu just offers a few burgers etc (which were pretty vile) and their heart and soul didn't seem to be in it. The view over the harbour is as good as ever, and for drinks it's be fine -... More

We enjoyed lunch and the location right by the port was neat. nearby was the mayhem of the Voille de St Barts boat race festivities starting....fish burgers, wine, lots of water and nice coffee. All you will need in a St Barts noontime. And good friend for company....

Enjoyed here. Food as expensive as you'd expect on St Barts, but I enjoyed a good burger, she a nice salad. Nice atmosphere and slick service. Sit outside and people watch. Well worth a visit.

Absolutely the best view of all restaurants. Food was excellent, really enjoyed it. This place has a ton of crepes on the menu so even if you... More

It's simple, reasonable (by St. Barths standards), and the food is good. The French Burger was amazing, and at €20, or so, it was a filling lunch. The kids menu was good for our 9-year-old daughter, and no food was wasted! Be bought lunch for our crew, too, so 7 of us were satisfied, with drinks, for €137. Service wasn't... More
