At our hotel's recommendation we visited for dinner. It is not in downtown Saint Francois which made parking easy. The welcome was warm, the service was excellent despite the language barrier and the food was outstanding. Beautiful combinations of flavors, fresh and beautifully presented. We had wonderful food on our 7-day adventure, but Les Freres de la Cote tops the... More

My wife and I had one dinner here while spending 3 nights in the area, and wish we had more. We weren't especially hungry but the server allowed us to share some appetizers -- seafood sampler, and a shrimp dish, that were excellent.

We had lunch here today based on the reviews on this site and it lived up to expectations, very good food and service, professional, welcoming, and efficient, never feeling rushed but without waiting too long either. Everything seemed freshly prepared and the chocolat fondant was a good finish.

Located in a restaurant row with two other places, Les Freres is probably the highest restaurant of the three. The night we ate there, the place was relatively empty but I understand that other nights, it's reservations only! Relatively smaller menu that other places but every dish we had was excellent.

The fish remoulade was tasty as a starter, but we loved the farandole. Four different kinds of fish with a sauce that you select. From creole sauce to a spicy sauce - we thought this was delicious. The ambience is lacking - perhaps they could turn the lights down a bit - but the service was friendly and helpful. Make... More

Highly recommend the 'farandole' - a fish tasting plate. And the punch Planteur, served with a frozen pineapple to keep it chilled. Friendly service was a bonus. My favorite meal of my trip!

We had an outstanding assortment of grilled fish called farandole de 4 poissons at that unassuming but lovely restaurant terrace right at the fish harbour of the little seaside town St Francis on the South Coast of Grande Terre. Every fish was fresh, tasty and cooked to perfection with a variety of delicious sauces. The friendly and attentive service was... More

We ate outdoors, a few steps from the parking lot. So the setting may not be the most tropically luxurious. However, the food was excellent and the service even better. The waiter and waitress were helpful, knowledgeable, and charming. The smoked marlin is not to be missed. The dorade, a staple of the Guadeloupe cuisine, was very good. This restaurant... More

It's in an odd location overlooking a parking lot, but everything else is terrific. We went in the evening without a reservation and were just happy to find a spot on a Monday evening when many places close. The servers were both excellent, describing each dish in detail. But the main thing is -- the food was uniformly delicious. Smoked... More

We came here as few other restaurants were open on a Monday night in June in St Francois. They put a blackboard outside with the day's offerings and they English speaking waiter helped us decide what to have.
