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

My friends and I stopped in this lovely little place for late evening drinks, so I can't review the food. However, I will say that the food being served at the table next to us looked inviting, innovative, and delicious. Good selection of wine and spirits here, and if it begins to rain while you are sitting out front, there... More

We went into St. Francois to go to another restaurant, which was booked. WE found Le Mabouya walking around. Not the cheapest, but excellent food, beautifully served. Very French. They have a well stocked wine 'cellar' and their house wine was also good!

This restaurant was recommended as having a "very good wine cellar", which made us think that perhaps the food would not be good. But, the food was EXCELLENT. Lovely wines, for sure. However, we were also pleased with our food. I ordered the catch of the day, which included 2 different fish. Both were perfectly prepared and delicious. The service... More

A really great French bistro menu. I had probably the best roasted lamb shank preparation I've ever had. Our other entre was the sliced duck breast, also fantastic. As good or better than we've had in Paris. Outstanding wine list. Overall a very memorable meal. We will definitely go again next trip.. It's not inexpensive, but was worth it for... More

We made a reservation for this restaurant for our last night. The atmosphere is great - very cozy and relaxing. They had an English menu, which our party appreciated. The food was good. I had the lamb and it was tender with a nice sauce. With drinks the bill ended up being a little high, but the experience was definitely... More

The food was fantasic- the fish tasted very fresh and the sauces were excellent. The owner was also there and was very helpful and friendly. He clearly cared about the quality of the food and the experience. We also really enjoyed the ambiance- it had a cozy warm feel, without being dark or isolated. Definitely check it out if you...

We stumbled upon this place our first night on the island and had a tasty and memorable dinner. My 7 friends and I received excellent service and a wonderful meal. I wish we could have made it back before leaving. Thanks for an awesome experience.
