“Best Lobster dinner on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Choose your lobster from a live tank and enjoy a great lobster dinner a few minutes later. The chefs trained with Paul Bocuse in Lyon.

Fantastic meal which started with a complimentary champagne. Variety of appetizers, soups and dinners were ordered all getting rave reviews from our party. Service was prompt and friendly. Would go again.

“Great Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Just returned from a great meal at Bistrot Caraibies
It's a small restaurant in Grand Case but great food and great service.
We had the scallops and shrimp appetizer which were very tasty and Mahi Mahi for main course.
Both were good and I would recommend. For dessert we shared the hot chocolate cake. Wow. Very tasty but more of a pudding texture than cake.
Yes, I would return but our meal at Le Villa was better.

“Absolutely fabulous meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner tonight at Bistrot Caraibes, everything was just perfect. We were greeted warmly by Thibault and Amaury and given our choice of tables. My husband started with the French Onion soup, delicious! He had a main course serving of the Foie Gras, amazingly good. I had the Scallops, fantastic. Perfectly cooked with beautiful presentation. To finish we had the Creme Brûlée, very yummy! Excellent meal. Highly recommended. Don't miss the opportunity to dine here.

“Still our favourite restaurant, the best on Grand Case”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We first ate here a couple of times in June 2013, and wrote a glowing review. We returned a few days ago, and enjoyed dinner on the evening of our arrival. We shared an endive and blue cheese salad, then a delicious rock lobster from the tank, with garlic butter and buerre blanc, followed by a melted chocolate dessert, all accompanied by an excellent bottle of Sancerre, the suggestion of Nancy, who not only remembered us from our previous visits, but made us feel so welcome.
