Excellent food with a neat atmosphere and wonderful staff. Situated right above the beach yet adequately sheltered from the weather it's quite the experience to eat top shelf food and hear the waves crashing on the beach.

This restaurant is getting back to its former glory under new management. The setting, cocktails, menu and service are all superb and we hope to return very soon.

We spent 5 nights at Frenchman's and one of the deciding factors was the restaurant on premises. Upon arrival we had lunch - my wife and I split a jerk chicken panini. The bread was past its prime and has a few thin slices of cold jerk chicken and loads of some type of cream cheese / feta smear on... More

We were not impressed. They really try hard with presentation, but the food lacks flavor. I had mahi mahi which lacked flavor. Another had lamb which was ground lamb and she did not finish it. The vegetables were good. The bar was limited The service was outstanding. This was the shining light.

Had two wonderful meals here! Great kids menu as well! Plenty of different options on the menu to suit anything! The lamb and beef tenderloin were well prepared!

While the menu is somewhat limited, what they serve is good and fast. The place is under new management with a new chef. Their crepes and eggs benedict are nicely prepared, though the eggs benedict were not very filling. We went here last year under the prior management and while the food was a bit better, the service was island... More

My wife and I went there for dinner on a Monday night. They had a special menu (barbeque) which was really nice. We got to meet all the staff, who were all very customer service oriented. The food was great. We had walked to the restaurant and asked them to call a cab for us. No cabs were available so... More

Firstly, let me say that you can't beat this location. It really is lovely. The three star rating I gave may or may not be deserved as I haven't eaten there since Chef Paul Mason left. I am hoping that by mid January, I will be able to push the score upwards, but it deserves 3 stars just for the... More

For five years I have given this restaurant five stars Chef Paul Mason turned a consistently failed restaurant into my favorite He roasted his own coffee beans, made his own sausage and developed an outstanding wine selection Unfortunately he is no longer there My most recent visit asking for the wine list I was told "Pinot, Chardonnay or Merlot" period!...
