We tried this place on a whim - while purchasing ferry tickets, a young man approached us with a restaurant flyer, pointing the way, and insisting it was good because it was his mother in the kitchen. How can you refuse an offer like that?! We headed for Les Pieds dans l'Eau, which really did have its feet in the... More

Great place to go for lunch. We were served right away. We chose grilled fish which was excellent. They have books for children to keep them occupied.

Nothing really special about this place except for the Ti Punch to start with and a selection of rums to try when you are at the bar to pay. Not a lot of selection everyone starts with the accras and then goes onto the main course, fish or meat. Difficult to park nearby and you should get there before twelve... More

We were expecting more from this lunch but were quite disappointed. It is true that the price was reasonable but the food was quite mediocre compared to similar dishes we enjoyed throughout the island. It seems that this restaurant is running on a past reputation.

We were given a flyer about this restaurant while wandering the marketplace and several vendors gave it a thumbs up. Given good reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to try it out. We didn't however call ahead to "reserve" our meal choice and so when we arrived, there was little left for us to choose from. The owners apparently buy only... More

The service was very good - multi lingual if you desire. The setting - tres magnifique! The food was superb. Great fish - creole style with all the proper fixings. Very fresh salad, local bier. An excellent ambiance of Grande Terre with no overtures toward tourist based pricing. Our experience ended with offers of free aperitif and many smiles. One... More

We ate here twice for lunch and loved the relaxed atmosphere and the setting....literally on the water. Accras came to start followed with salad grilled fish and octopus, washed down with bottles of Corsaire. When we went to pay the rum came out and there were some at the bar who had definitely had a few, quite a party starting.We... More

Whenever we walked past this place it was always busy and bustling. One day we went in. Charlie, the proprietor is at the bar and welcomes you in heartily. This place is by the water but doesn't have much of a water view from the tables. The decor is funky and charming. Our table was a bit rickety but it... More

This restaurant was good, but I wouldn't call it great by any stretch. Prices very expensive compared to what you would pay in the States, but compared to others in the area, I think was very fair. Best part was the price included a side salad served family style, a welcome cocktail, entree and sides. Nice views over the water.... More
