This was French fine dining at its best. We thoroughly enjoyed every item placed before us. The grapefruit and orange-infused peppercorns greatly enhanced our meal, and the apple dessert was divine. We loved eating here and recommend it to all.

Le Poivrier is located on one of the small streets near the Marina in Saint Francois. It has a sophisticated contemporary flair. It is a fairly small restaurant, so you may want to make a reservation. The place was packed the evening we were there, and the staff speaks some English. There is some seating in the restaurant that overlooks... More

A waterfront gourmet restaurant near the port. Very Romantic! Good food! Good Service. GREAT Baba au Rhum! It comes with diced fruit and an additional little glass of rum.

We were delighted to find this place, it is right on the water in town. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere and excellent fresh food. We started with a vegetable terrine with eggplant, roasted peppers and onions served with an excellent basil sauce . Then I had the dorado which was moist , fresh and flavorful . My husband had the... More

It's on the water and has a nice relaxed setting. The owner welcomed us and was very gracious. The trip to Guadeloupe was spur of the moment and we had not brushed up on our French language skills. The host interpreted for us!!

Pleasant atmosphere pleasant staff. The waiter spoke English and translated the subtleties menu for us. So much for Google Translate! The crackers and dip before the meal was addictive with a curry flavor and creole flair. the Cote de gascogne wine was tasty and complemented the meal. The fois gras with chocolate and pineapple was fantastic as well as the... More

This restaurant in in a bank of wonderful options...just down the street from L'O and Zagaya. We were able to secure the last table for the early seating at 7:15pm and were very happy that the head waiter let us have our table and started service at 7:00pm...he must have seen our hungry faces. Like the other restaurants on the... More

We went there for dinner last week and absolutely enjoyed the experience. The location on the ocean is wonderful, particularly as we had a cool breeze on a warm evening. Our french is somewhat limited but the service staff were great. Reasonable wines by the glass certainly helped. The food was really good, and value for money. You will need... More

A very good choice if you are in Saint Francois. You will need a reservation. We had a first seating and were able to sit right next to the water. A very lovely and romantic evening. The food was very good. Definitely one of the best in the area.

During our week in Guadeloupe we ate at this restaurant twice. It has a lovely setting on the water, and a charming wait-staff. And, the food was the best that we had in Guadeloupe. Particularly amazing was the starter of foie gras served with peppered chocolate and marinated pineapple. It was fabulous! The other dishes were equally well-prepared and delicious.... More
