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.

Stopped by for a quick meal and it turned out to be an amazing experience overall. Started off with the absolute best pina coladas that I've ever had and followed up with French gourmet mussels. Son had escargot and callamari while daughter had burger and fries. All drinks and meals were top-notch and bartender, wait staff, and cooks were the... More

We had an awesome experience last year and it has not changed! - the food is unique and beautifully prepared and presented. Cocktails were delivered to us right in the water! An all round very relaxed day and not expensive. We will be back!

The owner with the beard was quite rude to us after several miscommunications between him and his waitress concerning whether or not we could use their beach tables/chairs. They didn't treat their French speaking patrons the same way (we speak French too). We ultimately did order food but the food was not very good. There are cheaper places to eat... More
