“Fine dining beach hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

We were really looking forward to an evening at PaCri. The setting (at hotel Taiwana) is spetacular, you are sitting almost right on the beach, the setting is romantic and beautiful. Service is also very attentive. The food is good, but nothing so special that makes it memorable. What I found a little bit "incoherent" is the fact that the food is a bit rustic Italian (not modern), while the setting is sleek and elegant. I did not find the cuisine innovative as it has been reviewed, in fact I thought it was just traditional Italian. Having said that, it would still make a special evening, and there are details that make it very enjoyable. The prices are high, but this should be expected on the island and with fine dining.

“Pacri from Saline to Manapany now at Taiwana”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

This restauarant seems to look for its identity, having moved again. This time we found it at the Taiwana and we believe it is really overpriced for a plate of Pasta, at lunch, even if it is at St Barth, Taiwana has new management, looks better maintained, but this was a bit too much to our taste, for a simple lunch, after a beech walk, however excellent service and the pasta was indeed good !.

Dear guest,

it is evident that you are writing about another restaurant,
PaCri has now moved to taiwana but is only opened for dinner and you could not have eaten at taiwana either since they don't serve pasta for lunch.
I hope we will have the occasion to welcome you there sometimes soon, you will see that not only we are the only real italian restaurant that makes all the pasta in house fresh from the morning but our prices are very reasonnable compared to our competition.
kindest regards Pascal

“Menu a bit limited”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I recently dined at Pacri in the Tawaina Hotel. Firstly, the Taiwana Hotel looks spectacular and we loved the atmosphere at Pacri. It's beautifully located right next to the beach. The service was excellent. The only thing that was a little lacking for us was the number of items to choose from on the menu. But that also could have been due to the fact that June is low season. We'll definitely check it out again when we're back next March.

“Good food, but not a lot of choice, hefty prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

The restaurant is in hotel Taiwana, next to hotel Isle de France. A 1 minute walk.
The pasta was fresh, but I wish they had a better menu, more pasta selection.

“Disappointing...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

St. Barth's Guest Book (even the directions all over the island's roads) still say that PaCri is located at Manapany Hotel. Well, it is really located at Taiwana.

But the most disappointing thing about the restaurant is the menu. Very little options and the ones we had did not match at all with the prices.

However, the service is fantastic.
