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. You'll be duly impressed by entrées such as pan-fried mahimahi with creole buerre blanc; marinated loin of lamb with cucumber relish; or grilled beef tenderloin with papaya confit. All are accompanied by excellent wines—not to mention the blanket of stars in the sky overhead and the live jazz Wednesday and Saturday nights.
