As I said in the title, 4 times was not enought! Both dinner and lunch were of the finest order. From simple pizza to a flight of dick treats, pasta, fish, fish twice, and many small plates. It was made very pleasurable because the staff was professional and knew the service. So many of the " hipper food operations "... More

We've always heard from locals that Les Bananiers was good, but we were pleasantly surprised at how good it truly is. Upon our first night's arrival, we were tired, hungry, but of course excited to be back on our favorite island. Staying in Columbier, this restaurant is so convenient. Audrey served us who was treating us with great care with... More

Great pizza and friendly service. There are more than enough fine dining options on the island. Sometimes you just want to enjoy a thin crust pizza prepared by a pro who has a great command of the craft. Very nicely done and of course the hot oil option adds a nice kick!

We came across this restaurant when we stopped at the bakery close to the villa we were staying. It was in the middle of nowhere and didn't seem to have an atmosphere, so we thought we would not include it in the restaurants we want to try. One night we decided to cook in, but I had nothing to serve... More

Les Bananiers is a terrific French bistro, located on the hill on the way to Colombiers and Flammands, with a very varied menu for lunch or dinner, and some of the best pizza we've ever had anywhere. Pizza chef Jerome's sublime pizza, hand-made and baked in a wood-burning brick oven, is part of our annual St. Barths tradition. After swooping... More

Casual, great food, great service, reasonable price (for St Barts). My wife had mushroom past and I had meat, and it was just perfect. We definitely recommend this restaurant for a good everyday meal.

We've eaten here several times and gotten takeout to bring back to our rental. This place has great local flavor, along with a great sit down menu in addition to excellent pizza. It's located in the hills above Anse desCaye and Flammands. It is not an expensive dress up dinner spot like Eden Rock or Lisola. However they offer a... More

We ate here twice and both meals were very enjoyable. The waiter was very pleasant and took care of all our needs. Prices were very fair for St. Barths. My husband had veal one night and thought it was a little overcooked. The fish dishes were all cooked to perfection. We recommend this restaurant for those who want a good... More

With ~75 plus restaurants on St. Barth and so many "big" names it is easy to forget those local places with great food, local flair and "sane" prices . We had a great lunch and met two local contractors who eat here 2X a week as they have a great lunch special. I had a fabulous, ultra thin crust pizza,... More
