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.

We took a day trip to St. Barths and since we decided not to have breakfast before taking the ferry over (highly recommended) getting something to eat was top on the list. This was one of the first places that we spotted after taking a stroll over from the ferry. It was pretty expensive for breakfast ($50 USD with tip) and it was standard food but it was filling and tasty.

For those of us that haven't visited St Barts this is one very posh place. I mean the marina has slips for 100'+ yachts and they all have respectable dinghies hanging off their sterns.
Located midway down the main drag and in the midst of every big designer is this little indoor/outdoor cafe. Just stroll in and sit down and eventually one of the slinky waitresses will favor you with a menu. You can watch the passing parade and be entertained by the tourists as they waddle by with their Euro25.-50 tee shirts.
The food is standard bar fare, good and pretty tasty burgers, fries, sandwiches, salads and pastas. The drinks are good, well made bar drinks and smoothies and beer.
Since you will only be here once, this is a great midday lunch or snack place and you will feel really cool while here.
Tip the waitress and pick up a Euro40. tee shirt only in womens' sizes and remember this is a French territory.
