Creole cuisine

Good location in the centre of Gustavia, parallel to the Harbour. A little bit strange decor with a creole cuisine. It's not a fancy restaurant but it's a good bargain

My husbands favorite dessert is profiteroles and every year he selects the best on the island. Over the last 5 years no other restaurant has come close to Pipiri. The restaurant is now under new ownership and food is still good as the same chef is doing the cooking. But what REALLY stands out are the profiteroles!

We went here for dinner and it took 3 HOURS! Restaurant was not busy, maybe half full. Food was OK, nothing great. Crab cakes were not good. Caesar salad was the best part.

We were recommended Pipiri by a local bartender. We were looking for a non touristy place for my last night in St Barths. The food was fresh and delicious, the service was great and the ambiance was very laid back. We were a large group and tried most things on the menu and everyone was so impressed. The wine our...

We happened upon Pipiri after failing to find a non-touristy bistro or cafe on the Gustavia waterfront. The ambiance of their ourdoor terrace and their covered al fresco area were delightful, reminding one of shaded restaurants in the south of France. We had excellent salads and seafood and good French wine. A delightful find.

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.
