Fodor's Review

If you want to lunch with the savviest locals, you have to scrape yourself off the beach and head into an industrial park outside Grand Case, where Benjamin Laurent, the best wine importer in the Caribbean, has built this lively, deliciously air-conditioned reconstruction of a wine cellar. First-rate starters, salads, and main courses made from top ingredients brought in from France are lovingly prepared. You can also buy gourmet groceries or order from the extensive take-out menu. Smokers hang in the cigar–rum lounge. Naturally, the wines are sublime, and you can get an amazing education along with a great lunch. Enter at the "Hope Estate" sign in the roundabout across from the road that leads to the Grand Case airport.
