On Thursday, we landed here when the first place we tried said "No credit cards." We arrived on Norwegian on Saturday after everything had closed, and I never did get any Euros. I tipped in dollars all week. So anyway this was our cheapest lunch. We were greeted by a waiter, or perhaps the restaurant manager, who was rather abrupt... More

This Creole restaurant is on the beach, serves good food at reasonable price. Good menu options. I eat only fish, the fish varieties are good. Tasted crispy and tasty Accras ( cod fish fritters). Being a local, I tasted best accras in this side of the island. The service is very good.

We were looking for a very light lunch and managed to find a table in the near-full Arc-en-Ciel. We ordered grilled fish for 10 euros and discovered that this came with a 'Ti_rhum' drink, a starter of accras, the fish, and a dessert (possibly flambe bananas). We restricted ourselves to the drink and the fish and were happy with the... More

We ate here twice while visiting Grand Anse. The staff are very nice, but like most places in this area the service is slow. The food is decent, some items better than others, but they have a very prix fix lunch that included accras and desert. (not sure if this is always the case) Overall less expensive than the other...

What a surprise! This simple beach side restaurant serves amazing food! My husband adored their crayfish in sauce, my daughter loved their chicken, and my poulet boucané was terrific. The prices are unbelievable! The service was friendly and courteous. We've paid 30-40 euros more for a meal in Gaudeloupe -- and not eaten NEARLY as well, or had nearly as... More

Excellent value for money, 12 euros for a three course meal. I thought this restaurant was a great little find, its a bit scruffy but the food was delicious, dont know what the starter was but it was very tasty, main course was fresh grilled red snapper with chips and a wicked banana flambee to finish. The staff were great,... More
