“mo is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

the owner mo is great.
and the dessert "crazy of chocolate" is truly the best i have ever had.
nothing compares to the homemade caramel and chocolate.
i think the dessert is better described as "crazy for chocolate".
i wanted to suggest to mo but didn't want to be presumptuous as we were there to offer a good witness in our ministry and learn the language not teach it.
the main entree was good but nothing ever could compare to that dessert.

“2 Wonderful Dinners once again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

My wife and I dined with Momo on April 30th and again on May 12th. Two lovely dinners. Momo changed his menu in the middle of our stay so we got to try dishes from both. Thank you for bringing back the Calamari Stew, Momo! It was as wonderful as I remember. The freshest of ingredients is the norm here. We are never disappointed. Momo is a great host. He always keeps us coming back for more! See you in October!

“One of the most consummate dining experiences ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

A little delayed on the review, but one I must leave!
If it were just the food about this place, it would almost seem too easy to rate this place at a 5. The dishes are very inspired, fresh, and made with passion. Momo takes time to explain not just the dishes themselves, but his processes and sourcing of ingredients. It makes the entire meal that much more interesting when you can get some insight on how everything was put together. I really enjoy french food, but not always the formality of it. Le Ti Bouchon strikes a very enjoyable compromise here in creating a Caribbean atmosphere without any loss in the culinary experience.

Momo is a really masterful conversationalist. He has so many stories and information that he keeps you interested the entire time you are there. He makes sure to visit each table equally and his personality really permeates the entire atmosphere and warms the restaurant. He really brings the entire restaurant together without any imposition.

This was our last meal on the island and absolutely the best experience to leave with. I must say that any time I think back to this vacation it will be Le Ti Bouchon that stands out and I would go back to the island just to visit Momo and his restaurant.

As if this weren't enough, the experience brought everyone close enough that another table offered to take us back to the hotel as they were staying at the same one. It was late, taxis can be expensive and we hadn't rented a car. Momo insisted he drive us back himself. I think this type of courtesy and politeness has been completely lost back home in LA and it was incredibly refreshing and appreciated.

Thanks for a great experience and we will return as soon as we can!
