This is a casual place a blook off the beach on the main town street. You will share this with many of the locals -- and the staff knows them all by first name -- this is a Cheers type of local place.

There are a LOT of smokers -- but the place is outside for the most part so not a big deal, but if you are not used to smoke around any more, you will find it irritating or at least noticable.

The service is terrific -- easier in French as I did it, but I get if you point and chat it will work.

The pizzas are big so one of those is more than enough but they make good salads too.

Definetly a go to place -- and I did it twice.

The food and service was very good. Thursday nights they also have live music. The local people came and and danced to the band. So did we.

After a week in Guadeloupe, I am sure that some visitors do not want to see another ouassous or creole dish. I was craving for pasta, and found a small popular hide-out in Saint Francois attached to the Metis Cafe, called Havana, which has great pastas and pizzas, and makes a mean ti-punch. The "colonel" dessert knocked me out---the strongest and best I ever had. And there is a selection of Belgian beers, including Kasteel. How good can it get?
