Wonderfully inventive, delicious food in a superb waterfront setting. A little bit of Paris in the Carribbean!

We reserved a table beside the lagoon and enjoyed a lovely evening. The food was excellent as was the service. We had the low-temperature cooked fish with lobster sauce and it was incredible. The restaurants along the lagoon have all been outstanding and the setting could not be lovelier. L'O was no exception.

We opted for L'O on rating, but also as its neighbor, Le Zagaya, was fully booked. Consider booking at any of these waterfront gems 2+ days in advance. Also consider, dining is not open until 7pm and they may have just one seating for the night. We had very good service and a wonderful meal...I had the beef & lobster... More

Romantic water-lapping seaside setting. Classic French techniques (somewhat lacking precision and finesse) fusing with regional flavours and produce yielding unexpected yet interesting and surprisingly enjoyable dishes. Large portions. Service a little slow but take your time to enjoy the ambience, wine, food and company.

At l'O the terrace is the best ingredient they have. The food is not bad, but we were not fully convinced. We took on of the suggested menu and we found the fish really average (and not well deboned) despite the mashed potatoes were incredibly good (you cannot imagine how good the mashed potatoes can be unless you tried them)....

Great and simple menu, lovely apperance, very welcoming, and well organised. It is like being in a luxury restaurant but by the sea, where there is no other restaurant like it at all. Best price for delicious food.

Another recommendation by local friends, it didn't disappoint. Right on the water, open to the sea breezes, with a clean, tech-lit, white interior and nice tableware. The roadside entrance area is an appealing place to lounge with a ti-punch or sit at the bar. On two separate evenings the fish and meat main courses were well made with excellent sides... More
