Of course, as Americans, we came for the name. Definitely get there early - it was packed on a Wednesday! They have a 3 course grilled lobster meal that was about 40 Euro, which I ordered (based on other recommendations)! I had accras for my first course, and then the lobster came with a choice of sides - I got... More

This is a typical waterfront restaurant with a sand floor. we were told that the lambi was the best in Martinique. I ordered it was reminded that I dont like lambi. Service was good, portions generous and service was pretty good.

You can't book so if you want a good table next to the sea for lunch then try to arrive by 11.45. At twelve all the best seats will be gone. The main attraction is the grilled lobster but you don't have to choose the expensive set menu to get it. Just choose your lobster and you'll pay according to... More

I did have to take away a star because of the wait…but the food is worth the wait for sure. Be sure to get the 3 course meal and get the GRILLED LOBSTER! It was perfect! I also loved the ice cream. The staff is friendly, but English is limited. Bona petite!

Visited a few times over our stay and this restaurant offers consistent local offerings. Nothing out of this world but good quality at a reasonable price. For the area service is efficient and friendly which is definitely a plus. For appetizer, stuff crab was really good. All entrees and side dishes were on par with other local restaurants. Good place... More

Set right on the beach, this restaurant/bar offers good BBQ and island food for a reasonable price. Service is a bit slow but the food is tasty and the beer cold.

Our tour guide (Kalonji Taxi-he's excellent, look him up) recommended this restaurant so we went. It's right on the ocean with lovely outdoor seating. Very nice for a romantic dinner. There was no English menu so we used google translate the best we could. None of the waiters spoke English so we pointed to the drinks we wanted then they... More

With a table literally on the beach it would be rude not to remove one's shoes and embrace the lovely local ambiance! The service was very friendly and we managed ordering very well through a mix of French-English and a dose of good humor. The meal was superb local fare. It's not fancy. More importantly its fresh, well prepared and... More
