Having eaten many times at Kfe Massai, we were slightly apprehensive about trying its reincarnation as Table de Jules following some mediocre reviews. We had no need to worry: this was good wholehearted Paris bistro cuisine with strong flavours but few Caribbean influences. Fishsoup and a perfect fillet steak (cooked "a point") were excellent as was a tarte tatin. A clientele that had a lot of locals the night we were there adds grist to the mill that this is real food! Prices were competitive but wines were perhaps a little expensive. Service was good and the ambience a pleasure - all in all a success!

I had the set menu at euro 29. My wife went a la carte. I started with the tuna tartare. Another disappointment, very few places now seem to be able to season this dish properly it was billed as having ginger and soy and both were virtually non existent. My wife had the croque de Jules supposed to made with homemade bread and have ham off the bone. The bread did not seen very home made and the ham was tasteless. The presentation was not good and it looked most unappetising. Next my wife had the blanquette de veau a classic French dish but rather disappointing. I had local fish with mashed (purée) potatoes. The mash was very good, the fish average. Dessert was tarte tatin. This was pretty good although not cooked to order. The ice cream with it was good. We came here last year and it was much better. The bill came and was over by 35euros through a combination of errors. Apologies and all that but exactly the same thing happened last year. Probably never go back.

Hoped for a better dining experience. Nothing special. Everything was perfectly fine--but had higher expectations. We have ben coming to SB for many years. Wall House and Pipiri Palace are the ones we keep going back to.

Longstanding Le Mesais has been updated and reopened by same owner.
Pleasant spot under a roof for windy or wet eves.
Menu is interesting and well prepared.
The Daily Menu is one of the bets deals on St Bart's.
For those of us who stay in St Jean do L'Orient this is a great local spot.

Very good food & excellent service. Authenic French cooking- some things right our of grandma's recipe box. The tuna tartre was delicious! We visited twice during our vacation. Finished the meal off with some complimentary vanilla rum.
