“Amazing Cakes and Quiches”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I come here all the time and I must say I always gets the nuggets, opera, napoleon, chocolates and quiches and I must say they are all amazing. The napoleon I feel should be a bit more soft on the top but don't know if that's how it supposed to be but overall the selection is very wide and the staff is great sometimes they are a bit lacking in service but they are all lovely ladies!

Also they offer many more items and I believe this deli is definitely on the top of my list.

Will continue to come here until they ban me.

We are pleased to hear about your pleasant experience. If you leave the Napoleon at room temperature for at least 5 minutes the top will soften and be more to your liking. But, waiting and resisting could be hard, ha? We value your patronage.

“Totally satisfied”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

I've only been here a few times, but it's always met or exceeded expectations. We've had lunch there once, and it was good (not great). I think the best part of this place is the baguettes (not the best in the Caribbean, but very satisfactory), the cheeses (very good selection), the croissants, and the cold cuts. For a "deli" it's quite good. For a dining experience, go elsewhere.

“A little taste of France in BVI”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

This is not principally a restaurant, but an up-market French food shop. The range of cheeses is extraordinary and the cooked meats some of the best we have tasted outside of France. Add some super bread and pastries and you have a superb charcuterie, fromagerie and patisserie rolled into one. And coffee is available while you wait for sandwiches to be freshly made.
A must while in Totola

“Patience is Well Rewarded”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

The French Deli is a must in Road Town especially if one is heading out to sail and requires a few sandwiches for lunch.

However...one must be prepared to endure the glacial pace at which the staff prepare said sandwiches. Patience may be a virtue, but sandwiches are not the kind of food that require a 30 minute wait (four sandwiches). Fortunately, the wait is well worth the effort as the sandwiches are sublime. Saucisson sec, Reuben, Brie, anything one's heart desires, really.

We also picked up a tin of Madame Poulard biscuits, vacuum packaged merguez, goat cheese (so many wonderful cheeses!), and a couple bottles of Brouilly.
