We wound our way to Flamands and ate lunch at this charming hotel situated hard by narrow Flamands Beach. Unlike much of St Barths, there was ample parking at the restaurant and we were immediately seated outside, in a covered area, by the pool. The hotel is water front but the restaurant really isn't. From some tables you can catch a glimpse of the water - but this place is more about great food and great service. Island service can be European slow but these folks quickly figured us for Americans and operated at a faster pace which I appreciated. I started with a crab bisque with pieces of French bread crumbled in. The soup was good but not as thick as I prefer. My main course was an appetizer consisting of layers of tomatoes, goat cheese, and honey baked inside a small pastry. The combination of flavors was excellent and I'd recommend that dish. Two glasses of cold Riesling capped off the meal.
HINT: I think lunch is best here considering the no-water view environment.
