Lovely dinner on the harbour

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... read 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

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

Bagatelle is right on the harbor. It has a lively atmosphere and the prices were much less than we expected to pay. Food quality was very good. Service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely go back.

Loved this place. Food was great. But if you want a quite meal go early. We were told after 10 it starts to party and boy that it does. We had reservations for 9.30, music and DJ was great but by 10.30 people were dancing on the tables and the drinks were flowing. If I had a complaint it would... More

We had dinner here and the food was really good. The whole baked chicken for 2 was the best on the menu. I shared the steak for 2 and it was undercooked but I did not send back since we waited so long for our food. When the waiter came by with the truffles, he never told us it cost... More

I rarely write restaurant reviews, but such a horrible experience at Bagatelle has forced me to. After arriving on time for our 9pm reservation and finding Bagatelle fairly empty, our party of 9 was squeezed into a table for 8. I scanned the dining room and waterfront patio and noticed a lot of tables set up for large parties. It... More
