The quality of this restaurant is exemplified by the fact that we ate dinner here twice in one week on the island. First, we ate there with another couple we had met on the flight, and who had eaten there already. Three nights later, we returned by ourselves. Both times, the meals were excellent and the service was professional. Like... More

We really enjoyed our evening meal at La Savane, which we had on our last evening on the island. We went in January 2016, but are still missing the passion fruit emulsion and panna cotta, which both my girlfriend and I agree were some of our favorite desserts that we've ever had -- and we're still talking about them 6...

We ate here on the last night of our vacation and everything was delicous. If we had been able to get a table earlier in the week we would have surely returned a second time. The service was also excellent. The price was very reasonable for the quality of the food. It wasn't any more expensive than some average meals... More

Probably our favourite restaurant in the area. Normally need to book which we did except on the first visit for this holiday. We did get a table and the owner remembered us from the previous year! Excellent food

We stopped here for lunch and the food was so good we came back the two following nights! The food is amazing, fresh, tasty and beautifully presented and good portion sizes, the fish dishes are lovely, very tasty and tender, the chicken and beef was also very nice. The puddings are something else, and you can order a small selection... More

Totally my favourite restaurant in town. A great choice on a mouth watering menu. Cooked to perfection at a reasonable price. This is so popular you need to book.

We ate on the early side, as we had our little one with us. I especially appreciated that they brought his meal out early, so that he didn't have to wait as long. He loved the fish. The housemade foie is excellent, and we enjoyed the fish tartare and loup de mer. The desserts were also very tasty. Beautiful setting... More
