Lazing around in the sun makes everyone hungry. Fortunately, Grain de Sel is right off the Anse Saline parking lot, so you don't need to go far for food. There's a great selection for all palates. The service is attentive and friendly. Seating is outdoors...More

Casual for St. Barts but expensive. The staff is lovely. No need to wear Jewels here. Slightly bohemian. A lot of Americans And British people. Pleasant atmosphere. No need to have your hair done. Chic.

We were early for dinner. Menu is extensive with additional blackboard of daily specials. Ask for the whole fish special which is always excellent and served three ways... overall great food, creole style, moderately priced. Very friendly service, short wine list.

After many French restaurants on St Barth, Grain de Sel had a much more local feel. Excellent lentils with crab, Christophine with cod and rock fish as a main dish. Well prepared, tasty, quick service. The home made ice cream was disappointing, and we have...More

Leaving the beach, looking for a place for lunch, and there it was. We couldn't have imagined a better solution. Great food and service in a shady, relaxing setting. Salads, fresh fish and goat stew to die for.

Thai Tuna Salad is amazing. Tuna Tartare is so fresh and it's a must have. Stay away from the Blue Lagoon cocktail.
