My husband and I ate dinner here recently. Although located in La Poterie at the end of a 1-km bumpy dirt road, the setting is lovely, the food delicious, and the service excellent. The scallops that I had were among the best I have ever eaten. Well worth the visit.

My husband and I booked the restaurant before we visited Martinique based on the reviews. We were not disappointed although it was a little difficult to get to without a car.

Sweetbreads and Kidneys and duck, oh my! Truly well prepared Paris inspired caribbean delights served in a lush, romantically rustic environment with tree frog and cricket's happy serenade.

Located in the "pottery village" among many art shops, the place has the charm of an ancient village, surrounded by greenery. The food is refined, the staff pleasant, and the price affordable. The place is slightly difficult to find as there is not much signs on the road, but it's a pleasant journey for nature & art lovers.

Delicious salmon and beautiful presentation. Lots of mosquitos but they do provide bug spray! Other than the mosquitos I would recommend highly.

We loved the food, preparation and service so much we returned a second time and it was just as wonderful! Small place - reservations are a good idea! Love the cleverly folded napkins matching the place mats. Maki made with smoked, grill Marlin was fabulous and the chop sticks were wrapped in a separate napkin with a little hand tied... More

It's located where we buy gifts to take back home and it's excellent for a leisurely lunch with a bottle of bubbly and some Foie gras. The service is attentive laid back French, you can be out...

All great, food, service, setting... Located in the Pottery Village. Not open every day, though, so have to plan ahead.
