You just have to do it.

So if you go to Pinel, and you should, you need to make a reservation here for lunch. So fun. AND you have to get the lobster/langostine. I mean, how many times are you going to be on an island… off an island, dining beneath a thatched hut and picking out your lobster from the trap by the dock... read more

Went to Pinel Island for the day and rented 2 chairs and an umbrella for $25 for the day (this is the going rate). We ordered their homemade lemonade and it was excellent! Very refreshing and not too sweet! We all ordered different lunch entrees and they were all excellent! The cheeseburger and fries, perfectly cooked, the mahi burger excellent... More

The location is amazing and the views are awesome. The food and drinks were also very good I just think we came on a bad day. The service was really horrendous in all aspects. Timing of appetizers, forgotten drinks and over 1 hour for our entrees when we saw people seated 15-20 minutes after us receiving their meals before us.... More

Can think of few things more wonderful than sitting at a table outside, a few feet from the water and eating a lobster just taken from a cage in right in front of me and perfectly grilled and served with some fresh lemon and melted butter, matched with a nice French wine. Very close to heaven!

Wider lunch menu than the other Pinel restaurant. Interesting appetizers. We shared a seafood sampler plate. Wine, beer, and great mojitos. Tables will probably be all reserved, but there is service to your beach chair.

We always have enjoyed coming here but the cost is becoming prohibitive. $12US per person for the ferry and $25US for 2 chairs on a crowded beach. Lunch could easily cost about 70 or 80 Euros for 2. The fresh water shrimp seemed a little dried up and the ribs were not very good quality meat. Too bad because it... More

Pinel island is beautiful and the water is calm. We were provided fantastic service from Fabien. He greeted us every morning and had our chairs waiting for us. He actually remembered us from our visit two years prior. He made sure we were settled in our chairs each morning and checked on us frequently throughout the day making sure we... More
