3 Best Restaurants in Marie-Galante, Guadeloupe

Le Touloulou Le Restaurant

$$ Fodor's choice

On the curve of Plage de Petite Anse, this casual hotel restaurant is the “happening” place on Marie-Galante. It has tables in the sand, stylish Euro decor, and the freshest, most delicious seafood cooked Franco/Caribbean style. Chef José Viator does wonders with fish carpaccio, bébélé (a flavorful creole dish with tripe and dumplings), and grilled lobster. Set menus are the best value at both lunch and dinner. On weekends, the Creole Brunch from 11 to 4 is particularly celebratory; on weekend nights, there's entertainment or dancing. Pergola's, the circular bar, has some of the island's best rum cocktails.

Manman'dlo the Siren

$$$ Fodor's choice

You may hear that one of the best tables on the island is found at the small hôtel de charme La Rose du Brésil---and the rumor is true. Shellfish abounds here, and desserts are inspired by the island's tropical fruits. First, order a fresh-squeezed lime daiquiri. You will likely want two.

Chez Henri

$$

This hip place on the water, flanked by the town pier, is named for Henri Vergerolle, the passionate chef-owner—an island character who spent much of his life in France but returned to open this restaurant and cultural center. Everything is fresh here, but the limited menu might have only three main courses available (you can always choose the fish of the day). Just kick back, begin with a rum and fresh-squeezed juice, and listen to African blues.
