Nice View, Fabulous Food

We stopped into La Savane on a rainy Sunday afternoon and were so happy we did. The entire restaurant is covered, but open to the harbor. No tables have a bad view. The tuna spread appetizer was good, but both the wasabi and sesame kingfish plus the coconut curry crayfish were superb. We had to... read more

Nice position and lovely food. They serve a mixture of local dishes and French. The restaurant is next to the sea with a great view.

Friendly place, pate was delicious and as I couldn't decide on a main I had two desserts instead! Simply delicious, divine panacotta and a great creme brulee. Wish we had time to return.

On the beach road in Deshaies there are several restaurants sitting right on the beach and La Savane is one of them. La Savane is a nice and an informal bistro with an Asian-European-Caribian fusion kitchen. We skipped the starters and went for the main course, mine was a delicious tuna lightly seared with a sesame seed crust, really nice... More

The food here is amazing, you have to try the fish tataki. They didn't have tuna (what's written on the menu) so they used a fish that they call Thazard, and we asked for the recommended way of preparing it (medium rare probably). Brilliant! We also had the crayfish in hot sauce, that was excellent too, as well as the... More

One of the best restaurants in Deshaies, if not the best, with local products fresh from the sea, very tasty ans well presented. Excellent and attentive staff. Great view over the sea.

What a splendid meal! To all intimidated by the fancy menu, I highly recommend the guinea fowl. Tastes like chicken with more flavor. Portions are perfectly satisfying but leave room for the chocolate soufflés. The restaurant overlooks the charming harbor and if you arrive earlier than 7, pop in to make a reservation. Not a lot of English spoken here... More

Delicious meal! I enjoyed a lovely chicken dish with peanut sauce that was very tasty! Excellent service, nice atmosphere. Wonderful having the ocean lapping at the deck!
