“Buzzy and fun”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Inexpensive and very good. Obviously popular and a great steak tartare. Location perfect. On the test would I go there again definitely...sadly closed for the last two days of our stay

“best bistro in town”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Excellent quality bistro with great atmosphere. Much better than some of the tourist traps around the harbour - with the ques out the door testament to its popularity. Menu is limited to daily blackboards so food is always fresh and in season.

“best bistro on island, all year round!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

this is simple, great little bistro, buzzy ambience with relaxed service...we go there all year round - you cannot book so go a bit early, havea drink at the bar and you must try the tremendous cote de beouf!

“Very busy bistro...for good reason”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We ate here on our last night in St Martin. We'd noticed how busy it was, in spite of its position away from the main tourist hot spot. The service was friendly and the food was very good (I recommend the cote de beouf). Good selection of wines. Worth getting here early to claim a table.

Fabulous bistro in the centre of the port of St Martin. A very friendly relaxed atmosphere that makes you want to settle in for the night!
