Description: Henri Charrière, one of the world’s most famous prisoners, would surely have had the time of his life at Papillon Restaurant in The Village, across from the Radisson Resort. Nicknamed Papillon because of the butterfly tattoo on his chest, he was the first convict to escape from Devil’s Island. Charrière’s thrilling, gripping autobiography has been the concept behind Papillon Restaurant.Papillon Restaurant’s menu reflects the Frenchman’s arduous journey to freedom: classic French dishes have been dusted with daring Caribbean flair and are a culinary journey for your taste buds. The spacious outside terrace is perfect for casual fine dining or one may enjoy the air-conditioned inside dining space.

“WOW”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I really wasnt expecting much other than a tourist trap. WOW was I wrong!! Incredible food, fantastic service, great environment!!! Our waiter Maurice made a suggestion for everything from Wines, chef's specials and desserts. He was spot on with each one! It was amazing! Just a five star experience! We will make it a tradition to go here everytime!

“Okay food.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

A few years ago we were blown away by this restaurant and we were excited to go back. This time, it wasn't so wonderful. My husband got the escargot. It was very skimpy in portion size compared to the last time he had it there.

I ordered the vegetarian dish. It sounded like it would be a pot pie but it was a salad on a pastry.

We will give it another shot because it was so great the last time, maybe we caught a bad night.

Great service though :)

“Wine was the perfect temperature”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

One of the only places we visited that kept their red wine the perfect temperature. Excellent pinot noir wine special. Terrific service and yes, the steak was top notch along with the crab cake. My vegetarian polenta was okay but uniique.

Very nice setting with a sweet shopping bazaar right outside.
