Surprising fresh menu--we had salmon tartar and the Italian salad --very fresh and flavorful combinations. Rustic charm and right on the water. We will be back again before we leave town.

We wanted a quick lunch and it looked like a good place with an interesting menu. We were seated right away but it took forever for someone to take our drink order. We aren't French and when we asked the waitress to repeat what she said I swear she rolled her eyeballs. Don't work with the public. Then it took... More

We had just arrived at our studio apartment on Grand Case beach and were absolutely delighted with the beach and view of the bay. We looked to the right and saw the shining lights of beach front restaurants and shops, how exciting! We strolled down the beach and landed at Zen it Beach bar. We started with the Salmon Carpaccio... More

We made a few stops to this fun super casual beach bar in grand case. Had a few cocktails and nice apps while looking over the water. The best night was live music with Tanya Michelle -- such a great voice and she made the crowd want to sing along on xmas night. A real gem

We try this small restaurant for lunch. The salad was very good and the cocktails was amazing. The staff was friendly.

You can't get any closer to the beach (we were right in the water). Our party of 4 spent about $100 but we ate a huge meal. We ate Brie and Bacon Cheeseburgers, Goat Cheese and Bacon burgers, mussels in cream with chorizo, beers, iced tea and more. For dessert we shared the chocolate spring rolls and an order of... More

We stayed righ next door to this place. Had drinks there right when we arrived. However went there to rent chairs and drink on the beach the owner gave us attitude and told us he could charge whatever he wanted for chairs. While that is true, we took our business elsewhere where they care about customers. At L'Soliel they gave... More

we had dinner here and the food was completely average. with better food options around id skip if this is your dinner choice. that being said if youre going to spend time at their beach and get drinks in the afternoon im sure this would be a decent spot. just dont have dinner here.

We spent a fabulous afternoon at Zen It enjoying the beach, sipping drinks and having a delicious lunch. The food was fresh and carefully prepared and our hosts were gracious. One of our best days on the island.

We had lunch three times, the appetizers are really tasty, main courses are delicious and plentiful, enough to feed large young men! Dishes offered are French local fare and the restaurant does not feel touristy. Beach chairs and umbrellas are included when you eat lunch. Staff are friendly and attentive.
