Nice atmosphere. Professional service but not exceptionally friendly. Lost our internet reservation but seated us anyway. I suspect they might not have been so accommodating has they been busier. Excellent foie gras. Good duck breast, good tuna. Least expensive bottle of champagne was €65. Would have liked not to need to spend that much. We were full so we had... More

I am so glad that we ate here. We expected great French cuisine in Guadeloupe (per articles we read) but this was not the case at all. Le Mabouya, however, is a true French restaurant and an excellent one at that. It features French wines, along with great food. As well as the food, the service was excellent and the... More

Had a great meal here on February 23rd. Food was very good, the wine by the glass better than average and the kids menu had a pasta with chicken that our 5 year old grand daughter loved. Recommend

This was a wonderful dining experience. A full wine cellar and delicious food. The service was efficient and friendly. Even the children's menu was fine dining quality.

Going to dinner in Guadeloupe requires patience, but we were rewarded with a delicious dinner. The shrimp tempura was wonderful, the lamb shank was great and the catch of the day was wonderful also. The host, was pleasant and spoke english. We recommend this restaurant and will,return.

Cozy/charming setting; a good wine selection. The food was fresh and authentic- definitely a must-try in the city. It was recommended by our hosts and we were very pleased. We had the fish of the day with rice and veggie side dishes.

My husband and I ate dinner here twice during our four-day trip. It was that good! Their wine list is great, the atmosphere is inviting, service is attentive, and the cuisine is outstanding. The tempura shrimp appetizer was some of the freshest, best shrimp I've ever had (I live in Louisiana, so I consider myself an authority). The sweet West... More

This is a mixed review. The evening began deliciously with an amuse bouche of accra on the house. We ordered a shrimp appetizer that was out of this world, the flavors were fantastic and the shrimp was cooked perfectly! Then came the entrée. My husband ordered the catch of day and it and the accompanying pumpkin were quite good. Unfortunately,... More

This is a glorious, elegant dining experience. Sit in the front for open air, but the restaurant is beautiful inside. The owner knows his wine, as well the pina colada is perhaps the best I had in Guadeloupe. Start with the crab ravioli. Then try the fish (local catch of the day) with passion sauce. Don't miss the vanilla lemon... More
