Fodor's Review

On the edge of Baie Nettlé, this restaurant has wonderful views of the lagoon from its dining room and open-air patio, but the charm comes from the devoted attention of adorable owner Olivier, helped by his mother and brother, and various cousins, too. The delicious food is edible sculpture: ravioli of lobster with wild mushrooms and foie gras is poached in an intense lobster bisque, and house-smoked gravlax and salmon is garnished with a garlic cream sauce. For dessert, the house-made ginger ice cream with flambéd pineapple is a favorite.
