La Cigale was recommended to us and are we glad it was! The atmosphere is awesome. I really felt like I was away on vacation when I ate dinner here. The waiters were great! Helped to explain the menu and recommend some of the best dishes. The food was excellent. The desserts were over the top. I never had a... More

I really want to rate this restaurant as "average" but....you just can't. This restaurant has everything going for it except for the basic fundamentals that make a restaurant great. The atmosphere is beautiful and it is the main attraction and center piece for this restaurant. Imagine dining on the beach with your feet in the sand, at night, lit by... More

This is the first time we tried Cigale; usually we drive to Grand Case for dinners. The setting was spectacular; tables on a brushed sand beach overlooking the bay or lagoon. And the food was very good. The only concern was that we were the only table until one other couple showed up after 9 or so. It may have... More

My husband & I dined here for our 14th Wedding Anniversary. It couldn't have been more perfect! It was a beautiful romantic setting, on the beach. Our table was between two palm trees. The very handsome wait staff provided excellent service. The restaurant manager, Dylan, provided stellar recommendations. The food was melt in your mouth delicious! This was my favorite... More

My husband and I ended up having dinner at La Cigale after our initial plans for dinner didn't quite work out. We had no reservations so a table on the beach wasn't available. However, we were seated at a table that still had a lovely view of the lagoon. We started with the salad and escargot and both were fantastic!... More

Sitting at a white clothed table with crystal glasses overlooking Simpson Bay Lagoon made this dining experience one we won't soon forget.

This used to be a very pleasant spot. It changed to the worse, but prices remain very very expensive. Not a evening out to put in your agenda !

We went here last night and had the worst meal so far on the Island. It was pricey and over rated. I had lamb saddle and my husband had sea bass. Both were over cooked and tasteless. Our side vegetable was way too soggy asparagus. Never go back there again!
