We had been to Bagatelle two years ago and were underwhelmed with the restaurant. On some nights, the place transforms into a club with people dancing on the tables and such. But friends suggested that we go for dinner this year and I'm so glad that we did. Our waiter was charming and funny and gave us great service. The food was fantastic, which you would expect for the prices, but you don't always find this. The salads were enormous and very unique. My friend and I had the chicken for two, which is what she orders every time she goes to Bagatelle. It was perfectly prepared, and so were the mahi and scallops that our husbands ordered. That night the magician Stephane was there and he came to the table to perform some tricks. I thought that this would be corny, but this guy is unbelievable. He performed these mind bending tricks right in front of our eyes but we had no clue how he did it. After dinner they brought out vanilla rum. All in all, this was one of the best nights we've spent in St Barths.

I liked the restaurant and the service. Everybody ate something different and they all loved it. My tuna tartare was too salty that i couldn't eat but they offered right away to change it.
The only negative about this restaurant was the exchange rate ... if you wanted to pay in dollars it was 20% over the normal exchange rate.

So let me start by saying the food is mainly good but the truffle pizza was out of this world. My main problem with this place is the obvious agenda of the waiters to juice up the bill. We were pushed tasting menus and family styles and the waiter asked several people several times. At another point the waiter brought the wrong bottle of wine yet insisted it was the right one, fortunately we had taken a picture of the bottle and showed him until he took it back. The bottle he was trying to bring us was significantly more expensive. I assume they wait till people are drinking and this is their move. Also the DJ was disappointing, we'll skip bagatelle next time and stick to LeTi

A great place to eat some French cuisine with a beautiful view on the port of Gustavia. Waiters are very nice and communicative, food is delicious. In the night it becomes a club so you can enjoy both food and music while there.

8 of us dined at Bagatelle having sailed into Gustavia on a catamaran. It was not crowded when we arrived and we were seated indoors which was fine with our group but outdoor dining was available as well. The restaurant is charming and the pictures high on the ceiling (which the men noticed immediately) were quite interesting! Our service was excellent. Several of us started with the Salade Bagatelle which was quite large, easy to share, and very light and delicious. All of the entrees were delicious: the beef tenderloin which was perfectly prepared and had great flavor; the Tuna Tartare which was very good and salty; one of the specials of the evening which was a linguine with truffles - that was deemed incredible and the other was a veal dish that was probably best meal, so tender and tasty. During dinner we were happily entertained by 2 wonderful musicians. While it was a bit loud and a little harder to converse it was great to listen to them and watch them play. A couple of desserts were shared and while we were enjoying them a magician entertained the table. A wedding ring and a $100 bill (from our table) were used and the group was amazed by the skill of the magician. Happily all were returned. It was a great evening and should we get back to Gustavia we will go again.
