Casual for St. Barts but expensive. The staff is lovely. No need to wear Jewels here. Slightly bohemian. A lot of Americans And British people. Pleasant atmosphere. No need to have your hair done. Chic.

We were early for dinner. Menu is extensive with additional blackboard of daily specials. Ask for the whole fish special which is always excellent and served three ways... overall great food, creole style, moderately priced. Very friendly service, short wine list.
