Fodor's Review

For a romantic meal with an unusual location, Le Roof is the place to go for lunch or dinner. However, be warned that it's an expensive gastronomic experience. Covered with a thatched roof and sitting at the end of a pontoon suspended over the water, 100 meters (330 feet) from the shore, Le Roof has a wonderful setting. A big square has been cut out of the restaurant floor, allowing patrons to view the lagoon below—watch sharks, remoras (long sucker fish), stingrays, and sea-snakes swim by, along with, if you're lucky, the occasional frolicking dolphin. This is classic French fare with an emphasis on seafood, and may include coconut shrimp, crab terrine, crab ravioli, roast duck in a puff pastry, red snapper, and traditional crème caramel for dessert.
