The owner are from Portugal, their kitchen is a " metiz" between european and carribean, interesting and flaworful. Location perfect, just at see, tables not to near one to the next, service nice, even if a bit chaotic, the evening we were there, as two new people working their first day.

We dined at La Savane and had brilliant meals. The setting by the sea was charming and the staff friendly and warm. We chose a table next to a papier-mâché 6 feet plus giraffe, but he didn't make any moves on our food. Loved it.

Chic spot in Deshaies - Yotties and prices to match - nothing typically Guad about it - menu, style, ownership etc - distinctly un-local! Nonetheless bay view location & spacious layout are winning, international style food is very well presented and quite refined - tastes good, service excellent - good wine choice ~ 100eu for 2 all in for 3 courses. Give it a try - if you like that sort of thing!

I ordered "pintade aloco" to go. Once i got home, i found a half eaten pintade with several bones inside. I was disgusted. I called immediately and there was no manager or owner. I drove all the way back, gave them the food. They were indifferent which was more shocking. I will never eat there again.

We went without a reservation and were seated one table in from the water so we had a great view. The staff was friendly and accommodated our limited French. We ordered the foie gras (now illegal in CA) for our starter--it was incredible! I'd never had a preparation before with crunchy bits on top but they really set off the perfectly cooked foie gras. We also had the marlin tartare, the tuna with the wasabi mousse, and the duo mousse de chocolat. We enjoyed the meal immensely. We do want to try some other places as well but we would definitely go back.

The lighting was a tad bright for a romantic evening but that was a minor flaw.
