“If you like dust and complex things”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

I like to have normal food in a restaurant...this means
when I ask for something, I just like to have it, not surrounded by tons of blue and pink crumbles.
There are tissues on the walls and ceiling to create a kind of "Hindu Temple"...most of have spiders, and the little buddah requires some cleaning.
From my seat I could hear the bell of the microwave...unfortunately the lady didn't know how to set the timer because my wife's crab was raw inside, and mine was overcooked.
I simply recommend to escape frm this place !

It looks like you have never traveled in your life, if you ddo not like diferents things than your usual ,stay home!
We gave you a good service an good food;,empty were your plates when you finished;
and please ,i think restaurants in your country use mycrowave too! ;
Don't be cynical and condescendent when you go to a foreign country,learn how to travel and accept diferences.

“Exquisite cuisine, beautifully presented”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

Very delicious, refined, imaginative cuisine (we both had fish) with local vegetables in a cozy atmosphere open to ocean breezes. Both sophisticated and comfy 'home cookin' at the same time - the cook(s) obviously CARE about the food and definitely know what they're doing in the kitchen. Highly recommended!

“Fresh fish caribbean style!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Located at Quai Quichenin in the small port area of Saint-Francois, this restaurant offers nice views and very friendly service. Bernard & Odile are the co-managers and they both work the floor with help of waiting staff. Drinks are always great with rum and wine being more prevalent. We tried a lovely goat cheese salad as an appetizer and shared a masala of grilled parrot fish (whole) which was perfectly cooked and very tasty. Definitely worth a visit!
