“Mykonos -st barts1-1”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

Ahhh La bagatelle is THE PLACE to party, it reminds me of Mykonos nightlife. Everybody is up on the chairs on the bars cheering, drinking ...la joie de vivre! For the quiet crowd there are always tables outside where you can enjoy super dishes I recollect the truffle risotto i think, not quite sure, and an excellent steak tartar, overall the food is not for the michellin guide but who cares about the food when ...love is in the air? Of course in Bagatelle!

The food was amazing, but the service was slow! A little bit on the pricey side, but you are in St Barts!!!:):)

“Overpriced for the experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

This was a very expensive meal at an average restaurant. Nothing particularly memorable about the food, it wasn't bad, it wasn't excellent, it was good. Seemed overpriced for the quality and creativity of the meal. The restaurant itself is nothing special either. It wasn't very crowded when I was there mid-week, it might be more of a scene on the weekend. Overall it was the most disappointing meal on the island; I had high expectations and was somewhat disappointed.

“Dinner Review at Bagatelle, St. Barts”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

We went with friends to Bagatelle in late February. The ambience was good, the DJ was really great and the food was so-so. So how do I get to a "poor" rating? My first issue was that our waiter pushed extra wine on us and he "thought we ordered the more expensive bottle" which he already opened so we just rolled with it at the time. The bill was quite complicated, the waiter never mentioned that 10% Service was included so we inadvertenly over tipped by adding US style-20% My mistake. My biggest issue was when I came back a day later to talk to the Manager he had an arrogant attitude, laid the blame all on us, had a dismissive tone and showed no customer-empalthy what-so-ever.

There are lots of great restaurants to go to in St. Barts that balance ambience+food quality+service. Bagatelle just isn't one of them.

“Excellent fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

The fish dishes we tried were both delicious. Sitting next to the harbor in Gustavia added ambiance to an all around pleasant dinner. This restaurant stood out in a sea of expensive restaurants in St. Barth. I would return.
