All at the very same time! This is a lovely, low key and relaxed place to eat. Sitting outside is a delightful experience, even when the wind blows! Inside is a bit more diner like. Food is simple and well prepared. The tuna carpaccio and crab cocktail cold appetizers are as fresh as can be and delightfully light. The creole... More

This is probably one of my most favorite restaurants on the island: delicious food and absolutely stunning location literally right on the beach with waves almost touching your toes. So romantic and peaceful, just stunning place! Food is great though service could be a little bit slow at times, but nobody really minds - you are on an island basking... More

Restaurant very well placed suir the beach where you can not swim but the food is very good, I tested the Creole as many recommendations and I was pleasantly surprised my wife had the octopus special, but she loved me and sautéed shrimp delicious. The service is nice and not salty note;) I recommend as I did;

Our seafood dishes were all very strong tasting...meaning not at all fresh. The cold codfish appetiser was pure discusting. The scallops were tough and foul. The octopus stew was just not good. Nasty is the best word I can use to describe our dinner.

My wife and I had dinner there on the beach terrace. We first selected the creole appetizer plate, which gives a sampling of all their creole appetizers. It was excellent and I particularly appreciated the creole blood pudding. We then both had the snapper. It was very good, a little too much mash potato for my taste but still very... More

We stopped at Les Boucaniers for a leisurely lunch. On the water with a view of Marigot in the distance, it was a tranquil place to spend a couple of hours. The waitress Caroline showed us to a wooden table with benches with orange cushions, shaded by pines and palms. The menu emphasized Creole food with French influence. We ordered... More

I do not give many 5 stars, but this deserves every one of them! Tables on the beach under lighted palms are spread around so you do not feel crowded. Food is excellent and reasonably priced. Filet Mignon with Foie Gras a true delight!! Good wine selection. Do not be put off when you drive up, door opens to a... More

This informal little place has great food at a moderate price. This is a family business and with one server, expect to take your time. But, with a table on the beach among palm trees, order a good bottle of wine and just relax and enjoy. We both had scallops that we'd outstanding and the goat cheese Samoussa salad will... More

Unique ambiance, right in a small beautiful beach. Food was just amazing. We went for the local specialties and loved them. They have a large selection of French wines. Plan for a long lunch, service is not fast (nor did we expected that), but the staff was very friendly.
