An amazing restaurant run by a family on the beach. There's a sign in front of the kitchen that says "food from the heart", and boy are they right. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious! We had the conch fritters as an appetizer, and the foot long fish sandwich and lobster in garlic sauce for our entree. Excellent food and... More

Best food on the beach. Service is friendly and prompt. Fish wraps are outstanding. I eat there every time I visit the island. Very reasonable. The very best plantains on the island. Try the mango subside and enjoy the view

We tried Chez Leandra for lunch for the creole red snapper, which was very good, but could use a little more zing for our tastes. Service was super friendly and fast and we will eat here again next trip.

We went twice during our visit, for a beach bar it's is one of the better ones. Wraps are great, plus we shared the the red snapper sandwich and couldn't finish it, they give such large portions.

Had to try this place, love creole sauces. had red fish with creole sauce accompanied by rice and beans, fried plaintains and a mango suicide(cocktail made with coconut cream,rum, mango and drizzled with mango rum-to die for). pleasant staff but bring cash-they don't have a credit card machine yet.

We heard about Chez Leandra on trip advisor, and it lived up to the reviews. We had conch fritters which were delicious and split a jerk fish sandwich which was nice and hot, but that is how we like it. For drinks we both enjoyed painkillers which were topped with cinnamon instead of nutmeg but that minor variation was not... More

Had local fish (Red Snapper) with creole sauce. They asked if we wanted whole fish or filleted. Suggested if we were splitting dish we would probably want both fillets. Dish came with serving of rice, salad and plantains and the two fillets on separate dishes with lots of excellent creole sauce. $15 for one fillet, $20 for the two. Two... More

Great family beach restaurant. Leandra does all the cooking. Food was really good. The foot long jerk fish sandwich was daunting in size, but the crisp fish taste, followed by a delicate heat made it one of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten! I looked down and all of a sudden it was gone! My wife ordered creole shrimp... More
