Fodor's Review

Even if there's a downpour, the overhanging gingerbread roof over your terrace table will keep you dry as the food and music keep your spirits high. The family-owned restaurant overlooking crystalline Deshaies Bay is a dream fulfilled, and much of its success is directly related to the varied international experiences of the family members. Emilia, the matriarch who is Portuguese and lived in Angola for years, brings the African decor and name. Patriarch Vincent, who is French and was a candy maker in Switzerland, is the chef and pastry chef. Daughter Tatiana is the welcoming English-speaking server. Chef Vincent prides himself on using the freshest fish and produce; lobster must be ordered in advance as he orders them only as needed. Some diners feel that Savane is expensive, but quality ingredients coupled with creativity make for happy forks.
