We arrived late in the evening on Christmas Eve and were welcomed by the owner who, even though they had mostly finished dinner service, found us a lovely table and told us she would cook us up something wonderful. He also brought us an aperitif and amuse bouche - delicious, as was the local fish filet main in exquisite sauce... More

The restaurant is cozy, table are well set and the place is clean and with a nice and colorful atmosphere. The food is excellent, thanks to the mastery of TH cook, that mixes Indian cuisine and western tastes with great capability. We loved the terrine tiede de poisson and the fois grass and the fish with turmeric sauce!

My friends and I stumbled upon this hidden gem. The food was absolutely exceptional. I would very highly recommend the tuna tartar. All of the food was extremely fresh and the service was excellent. The chef came out afterwards to talk with us. She was really friendly. The owner spoke great English and helped us pick the perfect meal.

Stumbled into Le Vieux Port at the end of a beautiful day on the beach. The owner, Odile, welcomed us in before the restaurant was even open. She's a lovely woman who was extremely patient with our lack of conversational French and took the time to help us through the ordering process. The food was beautifully presented, was incredibly fresh... More

We were five ladies and arrived quite late, pas de problem! A very warm atmosphere and the hosts quite hospitable. We ordered an assortment of starters but the fish boudin were to die over, we ordered more, we were on our 2nd petit maracuga punch! We had fresh grilled langouste cooked to perfection. The fricasse of lambis was one of... More

A small restaurant with a nice, 'romantic' atmosphere, located to the left as you enter the Saint Francois harbor area. Upon our arrival, our party of 6 was warmly welcomed. We were quickly accommodated even though we did not have reservations and the restaurant was busy. We were immediately informed that they were out of some menu items, but this... More

Service: We arrived quite late (22:30) but the hosts had no problem seating us so we were relieved. We had a long day of travelling behind us and I think the waitress could tell we were tired and made us feel welcome on our first day on Guadeloupe. Food: Very good food, yes it may be a bit more expensive... More
