This place is a living museum of what island life used to be like. It encapsulates the French Creole heritage in old world architecture still seen in New Orleans, which sadly has not been properly preserved throughout the island. Lovingly restored, this doubles up as a cool rustic restaurant celebrating local cuisine.
It is unpretentious, authentic and yet not so cliche as you may think. The food is good ole fashioned home creole cooking. The service is genuine but 'rustic' the young lads are great, but a work in progress in attention to detail.
Lunch was 'floats' in stead of bread ( a local, lightly fried flour-based item)
Accra (creole fish cakes) or Tamarind Grilled Shrimp kebab for starters
Coconut curry chicken or Lemon and Garlic butter grilled Dorado for main course, served with lentils, steamed local vegetables, breadfruit croquets, friend plantain, and an interesting twist on cauliflower cheese (cabbage was substituted) which to me was the secret weapon!
Plenty local juices on offer, complimented by the most stunning gardens looking out onto the city, the port and north up the coast line all the way to Martinique. STUNNING!
All this happens on the expansive covered veranda full of the latice works of the architectural era.
A MUST VISIT!
