Had lunch at the French deli one day during my stay in Tortola. The baguette was ok but far from a really nice truly French baguette. Worst of all, it took forever to cut a baguette in half and add some cheese, lettuce and meat. The cakes that had on display looked pretty and the almond tart was tasty

Food is tasty. Service is on the slow side. They could be a little more friendly. Menu is diverse. They have daily specials.

Thank you for your review. We are happy that you enjoyed the food and found variety on our menu. Will talk to staff about being a bit friendlier. But hopefully they were helpful and professional. The service speed is a difficult one, because this is the Caribbean and the pace is slower in these parts. It's one of the reasons... More

Our boat Captain from the Tonina buys these frozen croissants here. Just put them in a cold over before you go to bed and in the morning after they've risen, turn on the oven and bake until perfectly brown, best I've ever tasted!

What a nice surprise to find this shop near the Moorings marina. We visit annually and have made this a must-stop in provisioning our boat. There are great sandwiches and provisions, but also delicious pastries and frozen foods.

.............Superb sandwiches and deli provisions. A decent wine selection and some of the best rhums in the islands. Clement Rhum specifically. And it is impossible to make it to the cashier without grabbing a delicious pastry........or two. I also found this to be a great value for such fine products on this pricey little island.............

Other in my group had sandwiches which looked great. I had a hummus salad, which ended up being quite a bit of food. There are so many choices, but not much seating. Be prepared to order to go.

So, we were staying on Peter Island and decided to take a ferry across to Tortola for a change of scenery. Luckily, Rimple the Food and Beverage Director at the Peter Island Resort had told us about this place.
