In the heart of the fisherman village Bayahibe you will find our ''Quebecois'' roots bistro. Located in a paradise seaside restaurant, our terrace faces the splendors of the caribbean sea and becomes a central meeting place for tourists, locals and workers of the tourism industry. We offer a dynamic atmosphere in all its simplicity and service is available to you in French, English, Italian & Spanish. We do have Wi-Fi and it is available to all our customers. From breakfasts to burgers or a several service bistronomy dinner, international flavors are combined with the freshest local produce and are available at all hours of the day. The house specialty is lionfish and is prepared in variety of ways for you to savour. Ask us how this fish ended up on our menu... A true story of love and hate! You want an incentive to get out of your hotel? We pay your taxi transport from nearby hotels with any bistronomy package reservation!

Not to forget, Saona Cafe is also great for Happy Hours and our seaside bar area is often open late! Here you will find the most extensive cocktail list in the region! Our musical ambiance is stylish & fresh and we are always open to special requests. Our music lists (and videos too) are uncomparable... Try us!
