Fodor's Expert Review La Baraqu' Obama

$$$ Elsewhere South of Fort-de-France Seafood

If you're looking for a seafront restaurant that specialized in conch and lobster, Obama’s is recommended. During lunchtime the alfresco terrace fills up mainly with French tourists supping on grilled lobster with either saltfish or black pudding or veggies, and a dessert. Aromas are drool-worthy with hints of lemon and melted butter. Main courses come with frites or rice, and some vegetables and greenery dressed with vinaigrette. There's plenty of Red Desperado (a local beer) and French rosé to wash it all down. The kitchen is across the street, as is the ice cream shop (with excellent tropical fruit flavors) and the Special Bar. Owner Patrick Henry put it together for his son who rocks it on weekends, with salsa on Friday nights. A 4-foot poster of Obama is the major work of art.
