Going to dinner in Guadeloupe requires patience, but we were rewarded with a delicious dinner. The shrimp tempura was wonderful, the lamb shank was great and the catch of the day was wonderful also. The host, was pleasant and spoke english. We recommend this restaurant and will,return.

Cozy/charming setting; a good wine selection. The food was fresh and authentic- definitely a must-try in the city. It was recommended by our hosts and we were very pleased. We had the fish of the day with rice and veggie side dishes.

My husband and I ate dinner here twice during our four-day trip. It was that good! Their wine list is great, the atmosphere is inviting, service is attentive, and the cuisine is outstanding. The tempura shrimp appetizer was some of the freshest, best shrimp I've ever had (I live in Louisiana, so I consider myself an authority). The sweet West... More

This is a mixed review. The evening began deliciously with an amuse bouche of accra on the house. We ordered a shrimp appetizer that was out of this world, the flavors were fantastic and the shrimp was cooked perfectly! Then came the entrée. My husband ordered the catch of day and it and the accompanying pumpkin were quite good. Unfortunately,... More

This is a glorious, elegant dining experience. Sit in the front for open air, but the restaurant is beautiful inside. The owner knows his wine, as well the pina colada is perhaps the best I had in Guadeloupe. Start with the crab ravioli. Then try the fish (local catch of the day) with passion sauce. Don't miss the vanilla lemon... More

My friends and I stopped in this lovely little place for late evening drinks, so I can't review the food. However, I will say that the food being served at the table next to us looked inviting, innovative, and delicious. Good selection of wine and spirits here, and if it begins to rain while you are sitting out front, there... More

We went into St. Francois to go to another restaurant, which was booked. WE found Le Mabouya walking around. Not the cheapest, but excellent food, beautifully served. Very French. They have a well stocked wine 'cellar' and their house wine was also good!
