“"The Best in Town"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

"The Best in Town" a phrase often used and already discredited, but in fact this is the best in town. In Road...Town, it is it. The only real French Deli in town..., in the whole island, for accuracy sakes. Great products, following great gastronomic French tradition infused by its hand on, very classic French character, owner, with the help of his wife, and the very appropriately uniformed, friendly staff. A very refreshing reprise from the gastronomic offerings in the rest of the BVIs, not only for the air conditioned environment but for the whole concept. No wonder why it has become a great success. Business, yachties, tourists, belongers and others all have made this their deli. French bakery and sweets tempt you right at the entrance, but please resist a little further and order a sandwich on classic French baguette, or a selection of your preferred meats cold cuts and chesses. Classic French fares menus and some. Or try their daily special. Then, and just then, indulge yourself in a classic French napoleon, cream and fruit tarts, crème caramel, crème brulee...want more? This place is cooking! Do not miss it! This is the "Best in Town"

“Good for Tortola”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Certainly not France, but good for the island. The local servers don't know what they are doing, but they are at least more pleasant than most.

“Extraordinary place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2012

Fabulous French Deli in a gastronomic desert. Superb range of French and other foods, eat in or out. This place is a life-saver if you're stuck in Road Town for any time. Better sitting dowstairs if you can, but only a few tables.
