I was there a couple of times and had the 'all in' buffet menu. The starters/cocktail plus dessert were fine but creole buffets are grossly over-rated. All the dishes in their pots over the coals look the same greyish brown and you simply cannot tell them apart. visual appeal is totally missing. Service was however very good/

We enjoyed this place during our touring around. Have a try of this buffet, especially the rhum that comes with it. Not a bad deal, but no outstanding food.

We went there for dinner. That night they served a buffet a la creole,with chinese sprinklings and a BBQ station. The quality of the buffet was ok, but the grilled cutlet was the worst I ever had. Try it, if you like, but there are definitely other restaurants nearby that are far more recommendable.

If you like to taste local creole food, you can go to La Marmite. Its a restaurant whith quite normal price and good quality. In the dinner, like buffet, you pay one time . After dinner you can chose one small rum for taste free of charge. Its a little bonus:-)

The restaurants we visited all had a great local vibe going, a fairly wide range of freshly prepared dishes available and eating out is clearly something the locals love to do.

The restaurant provides local cuisine of outstanding quality, freshness and pricing. The athmosphere is very nice, the way its furbished is a nice mix of french brasserie and kreole island style. We have been there a couple of times, the swordfish is highly recommended!

We enjoyed the buffet with a range of local stews served buffet style in cast iron pots over an open fire. The food was tasty and plenty to eat. There was a salad and then main course in the standard buffet.
