Near to dock, main square and directly next door to Ti Kaz La. Great late night pub on the sand, when the streets are near quiet.

We had been looking for another restaurant when visiting Les Saintes. When we found it we were told by a group of local fishermen that it was closed for the owners holiday! We asked if they could suggest an alternative and they wrote this name...down on a piece of paper. We walked back to the town, by which time it was getting late and the restauarant was quite busy but the waitress found us a place. The views of the harbour and clear water are spectacular, it being right on the waters edge. My husband had a starter of Accras du Morue followed by grilled fish, I had the 3 course set menu which had a choice, I chose Accras du Morue, grilled fish and homemade Coco flan. The portions were generous.More

I had a superb lime marinated fish starter as I gazed at the incoming tide lapping the edge of the porch. The service was outstanding, but I needed to use a bit of my high school French to communicate. The server was polite and helpful...as I struggled to remember the words for 'less expensive' -----'le moins cher' (probably misspelled it here). Euros are requested, but my American Visa card was fine once I met the minimum required.More

I believe we were served up reef fish - large tangs. It seems here in guadeloupe, there is very indiscriminate fishing practices, and in turn, restaurant practises. In fact, while snorkeling, I watched a local spear-fisher go by with a queen angel on his ring...of fish, which also included a couple of gorgeous trigger fish. I was sickened when I saw this as the numbers of reef fish - especially large - is sadly tragically low and worsening. The fish we had was a black tang looking fish and as can be imagined, it amounted to about 2 ounces of fish in the steak served from the menu as 'grilled fish' as well as the realization of what we just ate - it all didn't sit well. The sides were horrible, and the service was lacking. Would never waste my money here again.More

The restaurant is located next to the market, before Fond de curė beach. The place is by the sea, a small restaurant with approximately 10/12 tables... So booking is hardly recommended. If you want to taste langouste do not forget to ask when booking your...table to be sure to have it and choose the weight.More

For the Americans, think of Pieds Dan L'eau as a greasy spoon by the sea. Don't get the fancy stuff and be ok with brisk service. The court-boullion was good and the grilled fish was fine. There was a pumpkin (?) gratin if I remember...right that was tasty. The dirty rice was dry but that's how that it tends to be. For the water front places it's a bit cheaper so the price is fair (still "expensive" like everything else on the island, but cheaper than the nicer places). When we went at lunch the frigatebirds and pelicans were diving for lunch in the bay, which was entertaining. It was also a cloudless day so the view was clear to the top of La Grande Soufrière too.More

Great location & worth a visit for that but stick with a coffee & dessert. I went for the "menu" & it just went from bad to worse. The boiled boudin was cold & flavourless. The fish with the main course was rubbery & also...flavourless. I traded my dessert for a coffee & waited for way too long a time for that to arrive. From being seated to the first food arriving was exactly one hour. It didn't matter on this occasion but be wary if you're on a schedule. My dining companions were similarly disappointed, the lobster was as rubbery as my fish & watching her try to pry the meat from the shell was entertainment by itself. The battered cod pieces were dark brown (an overdue oil change?) & reportedly unpleasant. All in all, a very poor dining experience. The cost was inline with expectations for the French family members but a little pricey for the Canadians in the group, particularly given the quality. Desserts are predominantly from a local ice cream manufacturer & those aren't bad at all. There are far better options on the island, we would give this place a miss next time.More

Ideal spot for a lunch stop - fairly basic small restaurant with friendly service, right next to the sea, great view across the bay, pelicans and some welcome shade. There’s also a really handy pontoon next to the restaurant to tie your tender to. There...are not that many tables available and most were reserved at lunchtime as well. So either book ahead or leave it to luck. Had the accras for starter, which was not the best we had in the Caribbean, but certainly not the worst either. Then had the grilled fish as a main – fish was nicely cooked and not overdone (as can happen with grilled fish). Nice place for lunch when you want something quite simple in a relaxed atmosphere. Dishes were also cooked fresh so service is leisurely rather than slow. Not quite good enough for Very Good rating, but certainly above average and worth giving a go. Probably pay a bit more for the food, but the setting and view is worth it.More

We enjoyed this restaurant a lot. It was a really windy night, so the waves were very evident. We laughed when splashed by the spray! Food and service were terrific!

Very pleasant restaurant, with the sea always present, waves striking the shore below your feet (though you never seem to get wet - ideal! The food was good, tasty with lots of fish. The chief waitress was very good value and she spoke excellent English...always. We came back 3 times, we enjoyed it so much.More
