Second visit. Nice vibe, good location to see the sunset in the harbour of gustavia. My wife had a nice cocktail, a drank a terrible glass of white wine (12€), I wouldn't buy the bottle for 6€. I gave it back, hardly untouched to 'change' for the same cocktail my wife ordered (forgot the name). We ordered 2 spider rols,... More

The food is below average and the prices are absurd. $50 for two sliders with a salad. Drinks are crazy too. Some of the wine is marked up over 10 fold from wine shop prices. The music this trip was duller than an ancient knife recently retrieved. Service was average at best. Much better music places on the island.

After dinner elsewhere in Gustavia we often ended up here in this lively night spot. It was filled with all sorts of people, from locals to yacht crews and tourists. All were enjoying the live music, which was courtesy of a lady with an amazing grey afro from New York City and her band. We met some new friends there... More

Really great sushi but nothing to write home about. We met some yacht staff at L'Oblie who told us to that the service there here is the worst on the island - they were close to right. Despite having a reservation, the servers paid little attention to us after we got our sushi. We couldn't even get their attention for... More

The music, the ambience, being by the water makes this a solid 4. It is very fun and upbeat and worth a visit (we went twice) in 2 weeks. The food is a 3. We called for a reservation but they could not find it so we had a drink at the bar and listened to the musicians. We only... More

they have always great live musician's playing. that's my reason to go there. the sushi I had there was more just so so, but quite expensive and the drinks are expensive too. the Music usually makes it worth though, the best live acts you will find on St Barts!!

It takes a few strikes for me to write up a negative review. The night we ate here, we had, between our two meals, the tartare de thon, lobster sashimi, wagyu bavette with fries, and mahi mahi with sweet potato. The issues first arose with the bavette de Wagyu, which is a type of meat that will not taste very... More

Great sushi, location and service. Really fabulous. For St Barth a little less attitude and more about the food. That said, wine was a bit pricey even for St Barth

This place is awesome. We had a very friendly server, the music was really good, and the sushi was honestly the best I've ever had. BAZ bar is our favorite in Gustavia.
