After wandering through the shops in Gustavia, the bar de l’Oubli is one of the places where you can stop for a drink and a bite to eat. It is open for breakfast, lunches and evening meals but note that no credit cards are accepted, only cash.
For the day trippers from St Maarten is it possibly the first bar they come across from the harbour arrival point, and they have the choice of Le Select or this place.
The bar de l’Oubli is one of the few places on St Barths that serves beer on draft, although having tried one of them at the bar at the Airport I decided to stick to the bottle of Presidente !
However, this is a good place to sit, relax and watch the world go by. Indeed, I was fascinated by some Paparazzi who had set-up their cameras on the junction just outside but although we waited and waited, we never did find out who they were hoping to get sight of !
The bar has a TV and they show live sport. When we were there the sound was a bit too loud despite no-one watching the game that was being shown.
The waitress who served us was a bit grumpy but the actual service was fine.
Overall, this is an OK place for a drink. There is nothing exceptional about it, there are no great views, but it will do for a drink.
