We are regulars in St Jean but this was our first visit and we loved the service, the location (we sat outside on the terrace) and above all the food. The oysters were perfect and our party enjoyed more seafood. Good choice of wines and...More

We were sent here by our hotel for my wife’s birthday. Wait staff was friendly but inept and/or lacking in empathy, and the kitchen needs serious work. For example, we were given a hard sell to take the fish of the day—were told it would...More

We ate here with the family. Food was excellent, but prices were very high. We ate at The Pirate on the same strip another day, equally good food (better service) and far less expensive.

We came here for their oysters, which were the best we had on our entire trip! The sushi was not bad for France, and the bouillabaisse was satisfactory. We also had sea bream, which was delicious. Good place for a seafood fix.

We had dinner there while we were on vacation. The restaurant is directly facing the boat harbour and has an extensive al fresco dining area, with modern furniture and artwork. There is a very broad choice of seafood. We chose prawns and a mixed seafood...More
