There is a sophisticated vibe at this quiet, rather elegant beach club that may make patrons feel as if they are on a private beach. The decor is not as funky as some of the other beach-club restaurants, but look out for the red and black signs on the road between Grand Case and Marigot so you'll know where to turn. Drive slow because the road is rough. You can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas and spend the whole day relaxing, drinking, and dining. The restaurant is open
from breakfast through the spectacular sunset, offering a menu reminiscent of a French bistro. Be sure to look at the specials on the blackboard, but carpaccios of meat and fish are sparklingly fresh, and the salads are terrific. Plus, you'll also find French standbys such as tomato and goat cheese tartlets, as well as "international" ones like burgers and sandwiches. On Sunday evenings there is live music until 9 pm.
