Good eats in St. Barts?
Hello all! My fiance (soon to be husband) and I are going to St. Barts for our honeymoon. We have some family friends who are native to St. Barts, and they are letting us stay in their house in Saline. (Yes, I know we are incredibly lucky!)

I know St. Barts is notoriously expensive, and while we will eat a few nice meals out, and do most of our own cooking, I was wondering if anyone could recommend some moderate restaurants, even if just for lunch. I have heard you can find really good deals if you look, so I was just wondering if someone could point us in the right direction...

Any other useful info is also appreciated! Thanks!

Oh, I should have said, we are going the first week of June... since it's low season, I didn't know if that made a difference or not...

The Wall House is not very expensive (I think 32 Euros for dinner) and it is very good. For a really good meal try K'fe Massai (in Lorient). It was wonderful! Best meal we had on our last trip.

Cooking there is cheap as food at the grocery is very inexpensive, plus the ingredients are all fresh flown in from France, so fantastic stuff. Cheese and fresh french bread for lunch everyday on the beach! :)

There are quite a few inexpensive places to eat. Some casual spots in St Jean, etc.

Have a wonderful trip!

The Wall House
Andy's Hideaway
Le Piment
Le Rivage

I hope these help. It is very hard to find cheap eats on St. Barth's, but there is nothing like the food there compared to here in the States.


If you really want a romantic meal and money not being an object....Le Gaiac in the Le Toiny is out of this world!! Worth every penny you pay! Very expensive but so romantic and beautiful. ALthough in the afternoon there is a better view, but even if you go for sunset cocktails, you will love the place!

Have fun!
