“Little out of the way for townies”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Ideal if you are sailing from The Moorings but otherwise a bit out of town with limited parking. Shame really, because food is very good, staff are very helpful and the special of the day is usually very tasty.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoy our food and that you find our staff very helpful. Unfortunately, the negatives you mention are beyond our control. We do get a lot of local clientele (Townies, as you call them), nevertheless. I guess the 10 minute ride from Road Town is bearable to them. The island is only 11.4 miles by 3.8 miles, but noon traffic could be a killer. As for parking, it's a very big problem all over town. If you spot a location in town with spacious parking facility, we'll be interested. Keep in mind that Saturdays are less crowded and it's gauranteed that you can find parking easily. Also, please remember, we have "carry out" if you are in a big hurry. Hope to see you again, soon!

“The perfect prelude to a sailing adventure”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We visited the French Deli for a light lunch before departing on our voyage two weeks ago. We partook in a great selection of cheeses and the perfect wine selection to accompany the meal. The staff was knowledgeable and extremely friendly and helpful. They even assisted me in finding a particular cheese which I had not been able to locate for more than 40 years!

We enjoyed our visit so much that upon our return to the Moorings, we made it a point to stop by for a chilled bottle of Sancerre to celebrate our voyage.

We highly recommend the French Deli and are certain to return. T. Michael Conlon

“Very good”

Typical deli sandwiches, very good, reasonably priced, friendly staff. Will definitely be returning.
They also have a good wine and cheese selection, along with creams, whipped toppings, breads and cakes for sale.

Breads and other ingredients are always fresh, and the hot sandwiches very tasty. Nice choice of cheeses and pastry, too.

Had the opportunity to visit the French deli last week to finish the provisioning of our boat. Amazing breads, wonderful pâté and cornichons, cheeses, olives, sausages, pastries! Thank you, ladies, for wonderful service and delightful food.
