We had our best meal in Guadeloupe here. There are several other good French restaurants in the area, but this one stood out. Everything -- from the salad to the duck breast to the house-baked rolls and the fabulous banana crumble -- showed the handiwork...More

Recommend you have at least one dinner/lunch at this restaurant. French provincial cuisine with creole twists. Better than the other places we tried in DesHaies. Go for lunch if you want the views in winter! Only downside is the steep hill...you park higher up and...More

No dress code per se as casual wear is acceptable at all restaurants here, but I would shorts and flip flops (and beach attire) as the atmosphere is nicer. All seating is outdoors with white tablecloths.
