Fodor's Expert Review La Cigale
On the edge of Baie Nettlé, this restaurant has wonderful views of the lagoon from its dining room and open-air patio, but the charm comes from the devoted attention of adorable owner Olivier, helped by his mother and brother and various cousins, too. The delicious food is edible sculpture: ravioli of lobster with wild mushrooms and foie gras are poached in an intense lobster bisque, and house-smoked gravlax and salmon is garnished with a garlic cream sauce. For dessert, the house-made ginger ice cream with flambéed pineapple is a favorite. New in 2016 is a sister restaurant, So French, in the Pelican Bay area.
