Trying to do some kind of nouvelle cuisine créole, but the results are not in accord with the price they charge. The staff isn't really friendly neither. Dissappointed..

Arlette's daughter has certainly professionalised the marketing of the 10 room hotel and restaurant, and the service is excellent, but the rooms are very small, and the "salade du jour" we had for dinner was neither good nor sufficient.

Perhaps the best seafood in Martinique? The lobsters are as good as any and, from what the five of us tried, I doubt there is anything on the menus that is less than very good. Certainly worth a detour, if not a special journey.

After a great day touring the island, this was a great stop for our group. The meal was amazing. Portions are very generous, so be attentive to what is being ordered.

I ordered a dish with Langouste, lambi (local sea shell) and big local shrimps : that was really tasty. Service is not bad althought it is a little bit slow. Well, you are in Maritnique, on vaccation, so it is ok. The price is a little bit too high. May be distance from the main city is an explanation. Anyway,... More

This restaurant is clearly one you hear a great deal about so we were looking forward to trying it. I was expecting something really great and instead got just OK for 48 euros for lunch. The menu at 20 euros consisted of an entree with some sort of eel. It was good. The main course of fish with a creole... More

We were here for lunch and it was very poor. The service was slow and disorganised. The quality of the food was below average. To be avoided at all costs!
