We enjoyed our evening here very much. The interior is tranquil and cool. Each course and the drinks were all superb. The staff was efficient and helpful. We were never rushed but never ignored. Kudos to the whole team at Au Bon Vivre for a job really well done. Highly recommended.

Au Bon Vivre is a delightful spot. The staff was very accommodating about changes to the menu and could not be friendlier. All meals on the table were presented well and were delicious. The service was a bit slow but overall, a most enjoyable meal.

We were lucky enough to reserve a table here for Christmas Dinner, it was superb in every way. The ambience is exceptional as is the service and the novel approach to dishes. I enjoyed guinea fowl with a conch sauce which sounded different and it was, but delicious. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Quite superb.

My husband and I just had the most amazing meal at Au Bon Vivre, in The Saintes. We have been sailing and island hoping in the Caribbean for a year and a half and this is unquestionably one the best restaurants we've experienced. All aspects were great from the delicious food, to great ambience and service, to the gratuitous pineapple... More
