Visited tonight. The food, service, and wine was superb. Faultless. What more can I say? Thank you so much for a fantastic experience.

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!

This restaurant was recommended as having a "very good wine cellar", which made us think that perhaps the food would not be good. But, the food was EXCELLENT. Lovely wines, for sure. However, we were also pleased with our food. I ordered the catch of the day, which included 2 different fish. Both were perfectly prepared and delicious. The service... More

A really great French bistro menu. I had probably the best roasted lamb shank preparation I've ever had. Our other entre was the sliced duck breast, also fantastic. As good or better than we've had in Paris. Outstanding wine list. Overall a very memorable meal. We will definitely go again next trip.. It's not inexpensive, but was worth it for... More

We made a reservation for this restaurant for our last night. The atmosphere is great - very cozy and relaxing. They had an English menu, which our party appreciated. The food was good. I had the lamb and it was tender with a nice sauce. With drinks the bill ended up being a little high, but the experience was definitely... More

The food was fantasic- the fish tasted very fresh and the sauces were excellent. The owner was also there and was very helpful and friendly. He clearly cared about the quality of the food and the experience. We also really enjoyed the ambiance- it had a cozy warm feel, without being dark or isolated. Definitely check it out if you...

We stumbled upon this place our first night on the island and had a tasty and memorable dinner. My 7 friends and I received excellent service and a wonderful meal. I wish we could have made it back before leaving. Thanks for an awesome experience.

This is one of the best restaurants in Saint-Francois. The food is delicious with a variety of menu choices for all tastes. Excellent wine cellar. The service is friendly and attentive. Definitely expensive, but well worth the price.

I came to this restaurant twice: the first time with two friends of mine which introduced me to this nice place, the second with my wife: needless to say, the first time was enough to convince me to come back! The place is nice and warm, a good mix between a french bistro and a caribbean restaurant. The personnel is... More
