Great ambience, good service and excellent food - what more could you ask! Guadeloupe offers very little choice of cuisine so it is refreshing to come to a restaurant with almost no direct competition and still be treated as is if you are important to them -well done!

This place was a vegetarian's haven in Guadeloupe and that's why my husband and I went twice. The food is also delicious. Really well-prepared, nuanced flavours, fresh and authentic. However, the price point is quite exaggerated, especially compared to what we're accustomed to paying for Indian food in Montreal. 25 Euros (and up) for a curry that doesn't come with... More

Such a delightful experience. Sumptuous cuisine! An exotic and beautiful decor, thoughtful service. Un incontournable à St. François. Kick back with a cold bottle of King Fisher ale and some papadum! Enjoy the flavours of India!

The place was a welcome refuge for a vegetarian. The service was quick and efficient. The hostess was charming and inviting. The decor was nice. The food that I ordered was quite tasty. I'd definitely go back.

Perhaps a little of the beaten track, but a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Well decorated, excellent, friendly service, and the food was fantastic, with just the right level of "kick" to wake the taste buds. Recomend it and I will certainly be returning.

The Indian food is good. This restaurant near Saint Francois is aspen terrace, with cool winds blowing. Open only for dinner and on Sundays only lunch is server. In Guadeloupe, best for Indian food.

This place looks lovely from the outside, and is better still inside. The atmosphere and ambiance were both excellent,as was the service. We paid 90 euros for 2 people, for 4 small beers, two popadums and pickles, one nan and two main dishes with rice.

I visited La Porte des Indes on my last night in Saint Francois. The restaurant decor and setting is stunning. It is worth a visit for that alone. The food is very good, and the staff very helpful. We wanted to share our dishes and needed to come up with a selection that suited everyone's taste, and the staff was... More

A bit on the pricey side for this area, but what a beautiful meal. The restaurant is also lovely. My husband and I were a little leary about the food being too spicy, but the waitress was wonderful and helped us pick the perfect meal. We will return!
