We got forgotten and other people who came after us got their orders before we do. It took them 1 hour to serve us food. When a joking comment was made to the waiter if a desert can be offered for free his answer was "i'm not the boss and can't decide". If customer service is important for you i... More

Right on the harbor at Des Haies with great views and nice breezes. The food is excellent -- I loved the Marlin Tartare -- and the service is tops.

After sampling a number of the waterfront restaurants in Deshaies during our two week stay, we returned again to La Savane on our last night. The service was the best and the food was excellent.

Last night in town- the foie gras app was out of this world! Everything we ate was wonderful. As romantic or fun of a setting as you want, friendly staff who spoke English. We walked in without a reso and they quickly filled up around us.

I've eaten at Savane twice in the last three weeks, once with my wife and once with a friend from Boston. The water front view is lovely, and both meals were excellent. The room is open and not crowded, and the staff was friendly and helpful, even though I speak almost no French. Reservations are a good idea.
