The waiter actually suggested/asked us to include a tip

Mostly all restaurants on st barths include service. I'm sure Bagatelle does as well, but the waiterr specifically requested we add a gratuity to the bill. Very inappropriate. Not going back for dinner but will to party later in the evening. Spoiled the entire experience.

Although the food here is very good there were issues with the restaurant. The setting is very peaceful. We dined outdoors on the edge of the marina. My husband and I shared a pizza for an appetizer. I had the scallops, only 3 and my husband had a lobster entree. Both dishes were tasty. Dessert took way to long fir... More

Fun atmosphere, great truffle pizza, horrible service. We waited 40 minutes before getting our bottle of wine. After an hour of waiting for food our waiter came over to re take our order. I left our table 4 times throughout dinner to find our waiter. HORRIBLE service. I suggest bonito or tamarin, we will not be returning.

Headed to Bagatelle after the dinner rush as it was a happening place on a Saturday night. There was plenty of people, good music and no real issue getting inside. It is a well known spot and has a really mixed crowd from people dancing on the designated dance floor to people dancing on tables. I find the only bad... More

Was here 3 years ago and after the visit this time, remember it was a total rip-off. Don't be taken by the "chic" white interior and the faux Hotel Costes soundtrack. Service slow, with exception of the busboy, the food well, sucked... Medium rare beef was medium well, potatoes were mushy. Fish was not properly de-boned, wine was corked and... More

There are many mixed reviews of Bagatelle but we came away liking both the food and especially the general manager JM. The portions are very large so we shared a delicious tomato and mozzarella salad and then each had a main course, which was plenty and very good. We would come again and intend to next year.

Nothing was good here. Average bread, average roasted chicken and average vegetables. Less than average Creme Brûlée Everything was very average or below. So many better restaurants in St Barts!

Food was good - apps of tuna and truffled ham was excellent- I ordered a tequila drink and it was a bit strong. My husband had the scallops w sweet potatoes and that was great. My quinoa salad was ok but filling. Overall the ambiance here was good. Go around 8 that's when people begin to arrive for dinner

Like all this kind of places, and like the other Bagatelle locations, this is not a place to eat, because the food is average, the service is slow and they push for big tables, and huge bottle to order. The party is good with people dancing on the tables. But customers standing just at the bar with only one drink... More

We stumbled onto Bagatelle from the street side of the restaurant (Rue Samuel Fahlberg) while looking for another place. It looks like nothing from the street, but if you stroll along the harbor walkway, you can't miss it. Our evening there started terribly with a waiter with way too many tables to take care of, and we had to wait... More
