Fodor's Review

Exotic Caribbean tastes and flavors are paired with classical French techniques and recipes at this romantic and upscale hideaway on the north shore of pretty Marigot Bay. It's definitely worth the 20-minute-or-so drive from Castries. A little ferry whisks you to the alfresco restaurant, perched on a dock, where you're greeted with complimentary champagne. Fresh local fish—including the ubiquitous (and foreign) lionfish that is the scourge of local waters but tastes delicious—and prime meats are enhanced by fresh herbs grown in the backyard garden, which is also the source of exotic local vegetables and fruits featured in varioius dishes. Entrées such as panfried mahimahi with creole buerre blanc; marinated loin of lamb with cucumber relish; and grilled beef tenderloin with papaya confit are impressive. The menu is prix-fixe: $48 for two courses; $59 includes dessert. Dinner is accompanied by a blanket of stars overhead and live jazz on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday nights.
