Fodor's Review

Once you navigate your way to this charming little restaurant, down a poorly lighted street some 30 meters (100 feet) past the open-air market in Grand-Baie, you'll be glad you made the effort. Hostess Francoise will greet you at the door, clad in a toque blanche (one of those white hats worn by chefs), as will the main chef. The restaurant has only 20 tables and a big following of happy diners, so it's advisable to book in advance. Try the house specialty, aumonieresde crabes (crab wontons) followed by a shrimp curry with saffron rice, or go for broke and order a large plate of delicious langouste (lobster). Finish off with the dreamy warm-chocolate fondant. Grand-Baie, on the northwestern tip of the island, is a buzzing resort with many restaurants, but this out-of-the-way place, with lace-curtain windows and potted palms, is a real find.
