The food was excellent and the service was pleasant. For those who like exotic food they serve Bat legs which we tried and the kids liked them.

Food was ok, services was good. Is inland so not any views to see. Easy to find. Wouldn't visit again!

I had dinner with my family at the opening (7:15pm), because we wanted be the first to be served and leave this cozy restaurant on time to go back to our hotel (quite far away). We ordered tuna carpaccio (awesome) and shark fillet ... unfortunately something went wrong and we waited more than an hour to be served ... at... More

Hi Marco, Many thanks for the review, although we are disappointed to see that we under-performed with regards to the speed of service that evening. We continue to strive with the very unique food we serve, and times like this when delays occur and mistakes are made for special food requests are disappointing for us in all respects. We hope...

Went to have lunch with my sister and her husband last year. I've been around Anse Boileau like a thousand times, but I have never visited this place. Conveniently located and in a very quite environment. Fresh air from the nature and the ocean. The decor might not be the best but I guess that's capturing the real creole lifestyle.... More

Hi Patrick, Thanks for taking the time to review us. It appears you did enjoy the experience overall, although you made a comment about some of the food and decor being average, which could be improved. We'd love to know specifically what you found average as we rarely get criticism about the lunch or dinner menu or the decor, so... More

I went to Chez Plume with high recommendations from my hotel staffs. The seating and the environment was couzy, the service is friendly, warm but very slow. I had soup as a starter which was too bad, I ordered chicken curry that was average, my wife ordered octopus curry as main course and that was disappointing. Overall experience was frustrating.

Hello Mf-tantawy, Firstly thank you for taking time to review us. I notice that you had a soup as well as two curries, can you kindly let me know whether you had lunch or dinner with us. The reason we ask is because we have two separate menus, and if you order across two menus, delays can be experienced if... More
