Very tasty creole specialties. Loved the octopus stew that was an explosion of complementing flavors. The brochettes of chicken were tender and spicy. The ambiance is rustic but pleasant with inviting indoor an outdoor spaces. The service was very warm and welcoming. Pipiri is a nice change from the very upscale haute cuisine establishments that abound in St. Barth's.

The seafood wasn't especially fresh and the menu was not especially ambitious. However, the appetizer I had--a lobster salad was very tasty. I also had shrimp scampi with coconut rice. The rice was extremely goey, and the shrimp were probably frozen. This restaurant is over-priced and once it gets crowded the service plummets.

Came here based on other TA recommendations and no disappointments. Wait staff couldn't have been more congenial, food and wine as expected based on recommendations. Actually disagree with review which said it was a strange set up, found it very charming. But here's the kicker. Manager took the time to explain the tipping system in St. Barths. 13% is already...

We had dinner inside because of the wheater. The interior is a bit like a ski shack wit lots of wood but the food is good and the dessert was excellent. I had an excellent steak (lomitu) with bleu cheese.

We took Trip Advisor advice and went to Pipiri Palace for dinner on our last night in St. Barth. The barbecue was, indeed, yummy, and the shrimp fricassee delicate and delicious! The service was excellent, the staff friendly and the dishes were beautiful! Highly recommended!

What a very nice, romantic place to have dinner. Some areas were under a roof, but other were under the trees in an outdoor courtyard. A nice menu selection, but more limited wine selection, and not much under $60€. My wife had a salad appetizer ($16€) and I had a special of the day appetizer of scallops profiteroles - very... More

I have walked by here numerous times over the years and just never made it in until the past trip to St. Barth. What was I waiting for? Went with a group of 6 for dinner and everyone loved their meals. I was hankering for a steak after a few weeks of seafood and had the steak au poive and... More

The food was amazing and the atmosphere is still the same. The previous owners had better service. You have to try the fresh specials like Sole.
