“A spectacular meal in Guadeloupe!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

My husband and I heard about this restaurant after several days in Guadeloupe in December 2013 and made a reservation. Beautiful restaurant and surprisingly not at capacity. We've eaten all over the world including both 2* and 3* Michelin-rated restaurants in France 2 months ago but l'Iguane was one of the best meals we've ever had! Delicious amuse bouche of guacamole and a tiny roll followed by rillettes of marlin for my husband and a scrumptious chevre tartelette for me with a spoonful of delectable tomato basil sorbet. My scallops in asparagus cream were "to die for" and his duck had the most marvelous sauce. The absolute best, though, was the melt-in-the-mouth dessert of chocolate fondant with salted caramel sauce on a crème anglais. One of those "close your eyes and savor" moments. Yes, the dinner was 140 Euros with wine but well worth it!

“Bit expensive but nice meal”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

we went a bunch of friends and had a nice dinner. A bit expensive (50€ per person and we didnt order much), but food was generally good. Rations where a bit small. There werent many people, but it was cool and nice. Nice decoration and good service.

“Great place for a drink”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

I visited the Iguane Cafe with my family for a cocktail before dinner.

The decor is wonderful and the staff excellent. We ordered some of their own cocktail creations, in which they use local rums and fruit juices. Those drinks were some of the best we've had anywhere!

We did not stay for dinner but the menu looked great.
