Our seafood dishes were all very strong tasting...meaning not at all fresh. The cold codfish appetiser was pure discusting. The scallops were tough and foul. The octopus stew was just not good. Nasty is the best word I can use to describe our dinner.

“Excellent meal on the beach”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My wife and I had dinner there on the beach terrace. We first selected the creole appetizer plate, which gives a sampling of all their creole appetizers. It was excellent and I particularly appreciated the creole blood pudding.

We then both had the snapper. It was very good, a little too much mash potato for my taste but still very good.

Service was generally efficient (although my wife did not get the glass of water she requested). Prices are reasonable.

An very good evening

“Leisurely Creole French lunch under the palms on the sands”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We stopped at Les Boucaniers for a leisurely lunch. On the water with a view of Marigot in the distance, it was a tranquil place to spend a couple of hours. The waitress Caroline showed us to a wooden table with benches with orange cushions, shaded by pines and palms. The menu emphasized Creole food with French influence. We ordered a glass of Cotes de Bourg to accompany my husband's chicken with Creole sauce. French fries were crisp and savory. I ordered boudin noir, which was served with tiny scallions, red peppers, onions and a salad of arugula dressed with mustard vinaigrette. Delicious! My main course was a classic island dish: tender, juicy shrimp Colombo (a mild and delicate curry sauce) with fluffy white rice. We ordered expresso coffee instead of desert.
After we asked Caroline to please compliment the chef, he came out to our table. His name is Nicolas, and he hails from Paris. He also sent out tiny glasses of delicious milky coconut rum which he makes himself.
The meal was fine, delicate, and the setting is pleasant, outdoors with small beach/water view. We rated it an "A".

“Very Special Beach & Palms”
Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

I do not give many 5 stars, but this deserves every one of them! Tables on the beach under lighted palms are spread around so you do not feel crowded. Food is excellent and reasonably priced. Filet Mignon with Foie Gras a true delight!! Good wine selection. Do not be put off when you drive up, door opens to a great romantic spot.
