“Beautiful views and delicious food”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

We celebrated our Anniversary here. Although it was after dark, the views of the dark Sea against the lights of the city were beautiful. I ordered the Crayfish Flambe in Rhum and it was amazing (if a little messy to eat). Everyone else in our group was extremely happy with their meal choices. It is a little bit more expensive than some of the other local restaurants, but definitely worth the extra $$ in our estimation. Don't miss the desserts!

“nice place, great food”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Can't fault this restaurant, really - best one we visited on Guadeloupe. Creative and original seafood dishes, great view and, for once, a decent service.

“Best thing on Malendure beach”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

The beach itself is not one of the nicest - the only reason to go there is that it's the departure spot for trips to the Cousteau reserve on Pigeon Island. But if you are there definitely head up the hill to this lovely restaurant. Great seafood dishes - you can even pick your own live lobster - and the views are amazing. The restaurant is ingeniously designed so that nearly every table is in its own alcove with a view of the ocean and Pigeon Island. Also the one place we found where my efforts at French elicited smiles and warmth.

“the perfect french beach spot”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

great food in an amazing setting...the perfect bay, iguanas and tropical breezes all set you up for a wonderful meal, the cod fritters a must and so is a lobster cooked fresh from the tank of live lobsters, make sure you meet you lunch before you eat it! also some great desserts...very friendly people and good prices...do not miss this place!

“Our most enjoyable meal....”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

We had been looking for this restaurant on our drive past Plage de Malendure, and thought it would be on the left. It is on the sea side, and we were there at night, a sunday, after a day of snorkling. There was one table occupied, per level, so lots of privacy... and we laughed when asked if we had reservations! the place was barely occupied! I froze for a minute, thinking we'd be turned away. If you have a reservation, you get a seat by the railing. My husband said "I guess you get a better view of the darkness with a reservation."... so we did not have the view others have spoken of. But we got great food. We ordered 4 entrees, not to be confused with "mains" , the heavier portion. of american meals..." entrees" here are what we call appetizers. The presentation was wonderful. And rum had nothing to do with it, .... we only shared a local beer... sooo tired from being in the sun/water for the day...The " Feroce Avocat" we'd ordered everywhere on Gwada, and this one was great: smoked fish spriralling out of the top like a volcano....Then a pureed fish soup that was unusual, delicious, mysterious and served with a mustard mayo to dip our bread into. A salade crudite, lightly dressed with something silky, then poisson en brochette, with a different salad....a delightful evening...
