My wife had the kingfish and I had the sea bass. Both were wonderful. Service was excellent, fast and friendly. Highly recommend.

Coming from petit basse it took about 45 minutes to arrive. It was worth the effort though. La savane staff was friendly the food was delicious and dessert was a treat. The staff spoke some english and the area seemed safe. Service was a bit slow, never got another drink.

Yes that's a big thing, most restaurants aren't open monday. Also the food and service are good, and not too expensive. Waterfront location.

I LOVE this restaurant!! Amazing creative food, not overly fancy, just delicious and wonderful service, they speak English and German as well, make this a delightful experience. We were able to get a nice table without a reservation by arriving at 6pm on two different evenings, we had to go back, of course!! You must go here!!

We enjoyed a great dinner, which had an excellent presentation on the plate. Great seafood, decently priced bottles of wine, and great service. Would ea here again. Menu is all in french, but that is no different than the rest of the restaurants on the island, it is a french country afterall.

The ambiance was lovely, overlooking the ocean. The waiter spoke both English and French. We will definitely return.

My friend & I waited 2 nights for the restaurant to open so we could have our reservation & it was well worth it. The restaurant has limited hours, so I definitely recommend reservations. Beachfront view. Incredible menu. My friend & I had foie gras, two entrees, a bottle of wine, coffee & tea with sample plates of desserts for... More

The service, the food and the desserts very absolutely above the Guadaloupe experience. The service is kind, and they speak English. The food was great, we tried creole dishes and they came with very delicious side dishes (and the terina was absolutely heavenly too). Not to miss the desserts - they are great. Absolutely worth a little higher price.

I visited from NYC for a New Years vacation with a group of 16 friends. This is the best restaurant I've ever been to. Unsure about the place, as I hadn't found any good restraint in Guadeloupe, we came in for our first reservation. Let's just say we came the following 3 days after that. The food was beyond amazing... More

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
