Great place in Ste-Luce to enjoy typical creole food and especially fresh seafood. I do recommend to have the grilled "lambis" and lobsters. Place is simple but next to the sea and fishermen's boat so you know where everything comes from! A nice place to go on your way to the southern beaches of the island.

Best fish I ever had. No need for a starter because plates are huuuuge! Same goes for the marinated spare ribs. So yummyummyummy. Stick your toes in the sand and enjoy a pastis before!

I missed any beach front tables. I witnessed only the retail seafood storefront under the bill fish graphic on Rue Kennedy.

La Baraqu'Obama pays homage to the US President, Barack Obama...giving it a cool and trendy flare. The menu includes a lot of Martinique's special dishes and fresh seafood, but you'll also find some of the American basics (burgers... More

Nicely located on the beach which borders the town of Ste Luce, there is a very calm, Caribbean ambiance. The food was tasty and the service prompt at lunchtime.

Stopped by on night with no reservations. No problem. Prices are excellent. Open grilling area with many diners choosing their meal from a tank. We had salads along with grilled chicken. Rated highly for friendliness, timely meal service, fun atmosphere.

You have to stop by here and eat while in Sainte Luce. It can get a little crowded but if there is any slight wait time you can walk over to the beach and wait. The food is great and the drinks are delicious. The owner is also a very nice guy. He helped when I was having trouble understanding... More

Super laid back, yet very busy. We tried almost everything. We were six, so had six different plates of which we all shared. Everything barbecued, Lambis, Langouste, Dorade, Jumbo Shrimps and a Blue Fish .....all excellent. Served with a variety of vegetables, red beans, christophines, sweet potatoes, salad and of course the local avocados. To top it all off fresh... More
