Fresh lobsters, which swim in the canals that beautify the deck, draw many diners. There is always foie gras, both hot and cold. The French food here often gets a delicious Caribbean infusion, as in the fillet of daurade with a vanilla sauce, or the passion-fruit tart with a meringue. The inside dining room, although open-air, has deep leather chairs, and, on occasion, a piano player and live music by pop-rock vocalists; local music is the norm on Thursday night. You can listen whether you just "take a pop" (drink) or have dinner. Lunch patrons dine on the terrace near the infinity pool. With your feet dangling in the water and an exotic cocktail in hand, you can watch the sea churn below. The hotel's other lunch option is the beach restaurant, not going full tilt every day, but surely on the weekends. It's more casual, with grilled brochettes as one example.
