Fodor's Expert Review Restaurant la Vieille Tour

$$$ Grande-Terre French

A historic sugar mill is the backdrop for refined French preparations paired with local produce. The lunch menu is a mix of classic restaurant food and lighter dishes. A prix-fixe menu including a main course and a starter or dessert is available. At dinner a more classically French menu, with Caribbean influences, offers both meat and seafood. It is a marriage of tradition and modernity, with rich flavors and Creole specialities. Desserts are dazzling, with the pastry chef turning out towers, sauces, and glacés. On Friday and Wednesday nights, there's piano music in the lounge. Hotel guests also eat breakfast here and on the terrace overlooking the sea. Some dinner tables are now set out there, too.
