This is an excellent restaurant with authentic French food. Everything was delicious and the cool part is that they feed the local sharks and sting rays around 8:00 at night. It has beautiful terrace with outdoor dining. The owner even came to our hotel (Hilton) and picked us up and dropped us back off for free. You can't go wrong... More

We had an excellent dinner here and were impressed by the quality of the food and cooking. Tables overlook the water in Cook's bay and you can watch rays and sharks swim round whilst you eat. Free pick-up from local hotels

Great food, convenient pickup from our hotel. The restaurant is right on the water. They turn on the lights and sharks and rays circle right next to your table. Our dinner was a highlight of an already great trip

Great menu, classic French dishes executed to perfection. Roger is a kind man and excellent chef. Beautiful location- try and go early so you can appreciate it before it gets to dark. Amazing shark feeding right while you eat! Unforgettable evening!

We had dinner here last night and even though it was raining and a little cold, we had an amazing night. Food was amazing and services was great. You must try the apple tart, delicious and the Frenchman who owns the restaurant is extremely friendly.

This was the best food we had outside our Hotel. Delicious main and you must have the Tart for dessert, service was fairly quick on arrival with pick up from our Hotel. The sharks and stingrays swimming off the deck were entertaining too. All in all it is a must place to visit. It was better than Rudy's which we... More

On our vacation, we dined here 3 times. The staff were very friendly, and the food was excellent! It was a short cab ride away from our hotel, and the food was very reasonably priced. There is also a space to eat on the patio, we just loved this little gem!

Good food spoilt by far too relaxed service. It was a long time before menus and drinks were offered. The restaurant is on the water edge so is visited by stingrays and small sharks.

Really nice to eat at a restaurant outside of the hotel - it is small with a limited menu (handwritten) but very good food (beware the portions can be large) - we were lucky and got a table at the water edge so had a great view of the rays and sharks being fed

Thank Karen M
